Figured I'd update this topic here...you can avoid all image hosts now that we run the new invision boards if you want, or do the method that PeeWee described; your choice. I'm going to make this sound alot more complicated than it is
Start off by clicking the browse button located in the file attachment bar, under your post text box.
When this window pops up simply select the image you wish to upload from your computer, and click open.
Click the "Add This Attachment" button
The screen should reload itself and the file attachment box below your post should look something like this now:
If this is the only image you wish to upload, you may now continue to finish your post as normal. Repeat the above steps in the same form to add numerous images into each post. All of these images will show at the bottom of your post and appear like this:
If you wish to place your attached images at certain points in your post read here
If you wish to add the images into your post at direct times instead of listing all images underneath your post, you can now do so. After you have uploaded the image you wish to add into your post, go back down to the file attachment bar and click the "Add into post" button to add that picture into your post at a designated point.
Clicking the add into post button will automatically create the BB code and add it into your post. Something like this should appear in your post text box now:
You can highlight the code that is added in and drag it to any part of your post that you wish. The above method will create a post with attachments at any point, and should appear SOMETHING like this, depending on how you lay it out:
Again now, simply finish off posting like you normally would
Thanks for the update for those who don't know how to do this but I bet a large number of them have images that exceed the size requirements. I know that has happened to me several times and I just resized them in photoshop. Just a thought maybe a quick and painless walk through of how to resize might be good for those that don't have Photoshop or similar programs. Just a thought?
Resizing Images without the use of photoshop or equivalent
I believe one of the other admins took the filesize restrictions off, but I still don't want to see obnoxiously sized images on here anyways. It's nice to be able to post HUGE images if required but no one wants to see 5000pixel images anyways. Here's a quick write-up on resizing images with the free version of MS paint that comes with windows:
Open up paint, and click file open
Navigate to the image you wish to resize (2), then click the open button (3)
Ignore the obnoxiously large image you just opened, and click image>stretch/skew
This part may take some experimentation (or some simple math), but we're going to assume you're too lazy to figure out what size you want to bring your image down to mathmatically and do it the guessing way. Large images straight off of a digital camera are generally pretty large, but exact size depends on the camera, and the cameras settings so this number will change for each application.
Enter the percentage of which you want your image to appear in comparison to the original picture in both the horizontal and vertical boxes (marked with arrows). These have to be the same or you'll stretch/skew your image out of shape. Click the ok button
If your image is still too large, you can image>stretch/skew again and try again. If you've managed to shrink it down too small, the trusty edit>undo button will give you another crack at it.
Once you have that little number down, you're finished and it's time to save this piece of art you've created. Time for a file>save as
Now simply name the file accordingly (7), and BE SURE to save the file as a .jpg (JPEG) file - (8).
If .jpg is not an option, .gif will work and .bmp is a worst case scenario type deal. Final step: you guessed it, click the save button (9)
All finished up - time to upload to the LTR450hq server
