How to Post Images as attachments.

Recommended Posts

Seem to be having a problem posting photo's. Got them on photobucket, and can get the link but when I bring up the image link here it will let me paste the link but freezes and won't let me post it. Any ideas please?

Have a problem with quotes too. When I click on quote it doesn't bring it into my dialogue box.

darkazana , you asked for some helpful advice so I've posted this for you which I hope will be of some help to you.

Click onto Photobucket.
Enter Username and Password.
Click on 'sign in' (the one next to your password)
New page opens.
Click on 'Upload'.
New page opens
You'll see 'Drag N' Drop your Photos and Videos' and underneath this you will see 'Browse Files'.
You will see a small wheel in the top right of this box. Click on it and choose the size of your photo.
Click on 'Browse files'
A new page opens with a 'File Upload' box
Click on the place where your photo is.
Search for your photo (name of) and double click on it to upload it.
A new page appears with your photo and above it you will see a blue box 'View library' Click on this.
A new page appears with all your photos on.
Choose the one you want to put on Nottstalgia and underneath the photo is a box 'IMG code'.
Click on 'IMG code' to turn it blue.
Right click on the blue 'IMG code' to open new box and left click on 'Copy'.
Find the page on Nottstalgia where you want to put your photo on.
Left click in top left corner to get your marker and right click next to this to open new box.
Click on 'Paste'
A row (or two) of letters and numbers will appear.
If you wish to make a comment on the photo then type your message directly above the top or under the bottom line of letters/numbers.

Click on 'Post' and your photo will appear in the box. If you did a message, that will be above/below the photo.

Darkanza I have the exact same problem and have given up trying to put up pics or to follow something up with a quote from an earlier posting.

You shouldn't have to left and right click in Photobucket, just left click on the IMG code, it flashes once to signify it's copied, then paste that code direct to you post.

If you read my post again, Ayupmeducks, you will see that I've given full instructions from getting the photo onto Photobucket to putting it onto Nottstalgia.

I have followed your instructions Michael, but the IMG code doesn't turn blue, it just flashes copied, but when I try to paste it nothing happens.I had no problems getting the picture onto photobucket, just getting it from there to Nottstalgia. I have been trying on and off all day, at the moment I am using my desk top but it is the same result with my laptop, so I don't think it is a problem with my computer either. noblue

If it's flashing yellow 'copied' on bucket you're halfway there...come to your reply page here...right click...then click 'paste' in the small box...Your IMG code SHOULD appear on page.

Click 'post' or 'more reply options' and your picture will appear.

(Then join 'Tinypics' it's a damn sight easier!)

I sometimes don't get the "paste" in the drop down menu, I just go back to photobucket and "re copy" it, one photo I posted took several attempts to paste the IMG code.

That's why I suggest Tinypics....it's a Photobucket company but much easier to use.

PS...to those having problems...the first time I tried to post pictures I had the screaming ab dabs and nearly chucked the keyboard out the window...It is a bugger to get used to at first.

I'll agree with that, poohbear. When I first joined Nottstalgia I just couldn't get the hang of putting photos on. I received lots of help from the other Members and once I'd 'cracked it' It all seemed so easy. Everything is easy when you know how.

That happens to me, most of the time the "paste" is missing when I right click my mouse, once I get the menu with paste, then it runs smoothly.

My turn to have a go. Took this one earlier this year. Tried to post it using Michael Booth's method above but I am greeted with a message 'no authority to use this format on this community' or similar. I think it is something to do with the IMG code? selected 'direct' for this attempt.

It won't even let me copy the address bar here...go figure. All my other forums are getting pics as normal.

If I can't sort this you won't see much of me on here.

I just compared the code of the Trip To Jerusalem photobucket photo against one of mine, and there's nothing wrong with it, so why it won't allow the photo beats me.

Well that's it...tried Bucket, Image Shack, and Tiny pic...none of 'em working on here.There's got to be a reason on here....as I say other forums as normal.
