  • Attaching Files or Images to Threads or Posts

    For those who, like me, find uploading and attaching Images/files to Posts a bit confusing, here is how to do it:

    Read first Jeanie's excellent Tip 'RESIZE IMAGES FOR RP' about optimizing size and resolution... then ...

    • At the bottom of each Thread you have 2 choices for replying:
    1. the Post Reply Button
    2. the Quick Reply window


    • Use the Quick Reply window for text messages only ... (no option for attachments) ... when finished typing click on the 'Post Quick reply' button to submit your Post/Message

    • If you have Attachments to upload you can either
    1. click on the Post Reply button or
    2. click on the Go Advanced button at the bottom of the Quick reply window.

    • In the Reply window that opens, scroll to and click on the "Manage Attachment" Bar.

    • In the "Upload File" Window, click
    1) on the "Browse" Tab which will let you search your HD for the Files/Images you wish to attach ..
    2) on the "Upload" Tab.
    • If the Files/Images have been correctly uploaded , you'll see their name and size under "Current Attachments" in the "Upload File" Window. At this point you can "Submit" your post or, if you change your mind about the Attachment, you can "Remove" it by clicking on the "Remove" Tab.


    The size limit for each attached file is:
    1. 200 KB for Patrons
    2. 100 KB for non-Patrons



    The maximum number of attachments per post is 5 ... after which you get the following message:
    *You have uploaded the maximum of 5 files*

    When finished, click on the 'submit New Thread' or 'submit Reply' tab.

    Thanks Flora. I did that but when i reviewed my post it didn't show it on there. How do you get from that last step to putting it on my post for people to click on? Sorry for my silly questions! Thanks for that link that was great info.

        My first post yesterday I did not have these other items to select from. It was a basic plain text box with nothing much to offer. If I had of had this as I do this morning I would have figured it out easily enough.

        Are there some areas where this is not available or turned off? Or is it that since I made a post it finally shows up?

        I am happy to see this today. Thanks, Can

          Cosmetics have changed a little, but it's all still there. Use Post Reply and it will be pretty much identical to how Flora demonstrated. If you use the Quick Reply box, you'll need to click Go Advanced.

            I hope this is the place to try to upload a picture. This is my first post and first time trying to work with an interface like this.

                I just want to participate in some of the forums, but was unsure of how to post a picture, so the picture was only a test. I am glad there was a place to try it without posting off subject on another forum. I'll get the hang of all of this. I'm going to love this place, I think. Thanks..

                  I have just been reading this to be able to upload a pic if needed.

                  Thanx

                  I am not really in that bad of shape, but I liked the phrase that he used.

                    Where does it give limits as to the number of images that can be uploaded per post (or loaded from another server per post)?

                    Do the uploaded images also end up or count against limits for one's gallery?

                    What is the limit for a Patron's gallery v. non-subscriber?

                    I couldn't find anything about this in FAQ! I'm sure it's clearly written somewhere!

                        If you look right below here in the Posting Rules you will see that HTML code is OFF..

                        The Forum HTML codes from the host sites like imageshack do not work if the HTML code below is OFF

                        To post a thumbnail like below, you go to Advanced Options below the comment section Then/OR to the Additional Options area below the comment box and click on manage attachments to upload a file which has been sized to within under 100Kb from your computer or an URL... Then browse your computer for the file to upload or enter the URL to the file that is under 100K and a thumbnail will be supplied automatically

                          Sorry I missed these earlier. I guess they're not "F" enough for the FAQ

                          5 attached images per post.
                          Totally separate from Gallery in every respect (different software, even)
                          Patron currently gets 50MB vs 1MB for non-patrons (again, only for the Gallery, no total limit for forum).

                          And I do prefer not linking to images on other servers, since those links can break and that makes the forum thread essentially useless for future readers.

                              There is an area here called "Testing_1_2_3" where you can test any thing you want to post. OR On the top menu (at the top of each page), press "Site Menu" then On the flyout press "Forums" then scroll down to the bottom to "Testing_1_2_3"..

                              On ALL your posts there is also an edit button at the bottom of your post... press it to change/edit your post OR delete parts or everything if it was just a test..

                                Make a post, attach an image, then before you submit click the little paperclip icon on the editor toolbar. This allows you to put your attachment whereever you want in your post....

                                Have this old pic of my grandfather. He was born in 1894 so we are guessing this is around 1925-1930. Anyway, a million-and-one cracks. I have PSE 10 and although it works fine for retouching here and there, it would take forever to fix this photo.

                                So, my question... How would...
