    Try dropping them into an editor and resizing them no larger than 780 x 780 pixels. Then you will be able to attach them to your thread or post with the manage attachment feature at the bottom when you are posting. Hope this helps. Steve

      It's funny you should ask! I've just sent these notes to someone else...



      Do you have an online picture hosting facility? I upload my pictures to an album in Photobucket and link to them in my posts.

      Once you've managed to get your pictures hosted online, each picture will have a web address. Let's take the address of a picture that I have in my Photobucket album as an example; it shows some penguins and the web address is: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...shortlives.jpg

      Now, if I was to just post that address, it would automatically be detected by the forum software as a web hyperlink. To convert it into a picture, you need to wrap it in the following code:

      [IMG]whatever the web address is[/IMG] The important thing is that you have [IMG] at the start of the web address and [/IMG] right at the end.

      So if I use the code:
      [IMG]*http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v637/GillD/whypenguinshaveshortlives.jpg[/IMG] (but without putting the '*' at the start of the address - I only put that in so you could read the code, otherwise all you'd see would be a picture ) I get this picture in my post:




      I hope this helps. If it's still not clear, there are other ways to explain it and other ways to do it.

          I was meaning to ask about inline pics too, as opposed to attachments - I started playing about with getting coloured text and different sizedtext in messages the other day - then someone ( who shall be nameless but is a moderator with the initial G ) deleted my post ....spoilsport

            Hi Troy,

            As Steve said, save the file as a .jpg no larger than 780 X 780. You can save it in "My Pictures" or on your "Desktop". Just don't forget where. After typing your message, scroll down to "manage attachments" and click on it. A box will pop up and click "browse" to locate your picture. Then, make sure you upload it. When it's done uploading, you can close the window. Then, submit it.

            Good luck.

                Hi Troy

                I think you've mastered the posting of pictures .

                By gum, your workshop is large and clean! I envy both your space and your dust collection system .

                  Gil, one more question about photos. Is it better to resize pics to message board size or thumbnail? Didn't seem to make a difference in the way that they showed up after resizing.

                    Made tha dust collection system from a plan in one of the older Wood mag. Wasn't hard at all, got the vac motor from Harbor Freight & made the rest from the plans. It works really well to, very little dust to contend with.

                      To be honest Troy, I don't know . But I bet someone will be along shortly who does know.

                      By the way, it's 'Gill' with a double 'l' - I'm English.

                        I think it's better to resize to message board size because it automatically makes a thumbnail attachment which when clicked, opens a new window and shows the full size pic. If you resize to thumbnail size, and click on the thumbnail, all you're gonna get is thumbnail size which is going to be very difficult to view. JMHO

                          Hey Mia, I did save the pics to message board size and the pics that you see are what was pulled up automatically. I'll get the hang of it soon, maybe. By the way, how are you enjoying your new saw?

                              Sorry about that. Look at thread "Workshop & Projects" under General Scroll Saw.
