    Posting Pictures (Video Tutorial)

    Post by Ivo on Fri Jul 16, 2010 11:14 pm

    Good Day to All!

    I'm updating this section with a much better simplified explanation on how to post pictures here. It isn't my explanation, but I admit that I could not have written it simpler/better myself.

    O.k.....it's really easy, just let me get past the long
    explanations.

    There are 3 way I know of to post a picture.
    From
    another websight
    From Photobucket account
    From your home computer

    They
    all have one thing in common, you will need to copy and paste a
    "address" for your picture into one of the above buttons.

    See
    that row of buttons above the area when typing a post? They do great
    things, check them all out.
    This one, , allows you
    to post pictures from your computer by picking the picture, picking the
    size, then hosting it. This gives you a address you can copy and put
    into out next button.

    This button is where all
    picture address will be pasted. click this button and paste the address
    you got from the above hosting or from Photobucket or another website.

    How
    to take pictures from another website

    If you see a cool picture
    on another site and you want to post it here you can right click on the
    picture and then click on 'Properties' and it will show you the address.
    Copy and paste this address.

    How to post pictures from
    Photobucket.com

    Go to photobucket.com and create a account.
    Upload and store pictures in your account. Copy the 'direct link' to the
    picture and then paste in the Picture Button.

    So...to post
    pictures.
    1. Copy the address from one of the tree areas mentioned
    above.
    2. Push the Picture Button.
    3.
    Paste the address of the picture into the blank space.
    4. Press the
    OK button.

    There is also a VIDEO button up there, it works kinds
    the same. You can also store video in Photobucket accounts and post them
    by using the EMBED code.
    Use the EMBED code when pasting any YouTube
    or Photobucket videos.

    Special thanks to SINZA of the Exotic Automatic weapons forum for making this tutorial available.

    PS: Continue down the thread for a tutorial video for an example of posting a picture on the forum.

    Good Day to All...or is it Night?

    What ever the case...- "I finished the video tutorial that some of you have been waiting for...Enjoy!" Very Happy



    Press "PAUSE" when needed. Smile

    If you still have some questions about posting pictures...just post them below.

    O M G you are joking right ?

    ''I could not have written it simpler/better myself.'' !!!!!!

    in which case, i'm real dumb.... when i click on copy a I.E window pops up asking ''do i wish this webpage to access my clipboard'' . not being techy enough to know just what exactly ''this webpage'' would have access to, then no i dont...



    to upload a photo in my gallery i simply clicked up load.. selected photo, and sorted.. why is it so complicated to post a photo on forums then ? ?? of course you will say its not, but to me it is..

    You are at the finish line there...don't give up now.

    The pop up you're seeing is a security feature built into the Internet Explorer Web browser.

    Read about it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/disable-allow-this-webpage-to-access-your-clipboard-pop-up-warning-message-in-ie7/

    Page also tells you how to edit/disable it in the settings, so it doesn't annoy you in the future.

    As for the Video tutorial being muddy..Just open up the video into full screen view (icon all the way to the bottom right of the video)

    why is it so complicated to post a photo on forums then ? ?? of course you will say its not, but to me it is..

    That's what I'm here for...to land a hand, so *you* can say the sacred words ~ "that was easy"

    Check the video again in full resolution, pausing where necessary and let me know how that went...or if all is well - post a pic.

    Welcome to the forum,

    Ivo

    BriamlaZouche,

    Don't feel bad, guess I'm an old fossil trying to find a computer guru to help also (for quite sometime) as for the hair, enough falls out on it's own without pulling. It'll work out. I'm just trying to get pictures from my computer to the forum, I'll run across someone. It's probably so simple I'll feel like a total idiot .................. only consulation is that it won't be the first time, however, feeling like an idiot is nothing once you find out how to do it.

    By the way ,from Texas, I hope You All have a larrupin good Thanksgiving !

    well being English i like so many dont really know much about thanksgiving, well i get the reason behind it.but of course we dont celebrate it over here, we English are weird, seems almost everyone celebrates St Patricks day, yet St Georges day goes by with hardly a mention. although St patricks day is just another excuse for people to get rat a**ed :-)

    hope you all enjoy/ enjoyed thanksgiving, any excuse for a big nosh up and party has to be a good idea lol

    back to topic, i am still struggling to upload, after so many times in the past of taking my pc back to the shop due to contracting all sorts of crap, i am very cautious now, but i shall keep trying. but i find i can not bring myself to disable any of my security settings, but ho hey

    Welcome to the forum,

    Ivo

    Good evening, Ivo.
    I got a message from your video frame that said I am missing a plugin and cannot watch your videos.  So I trusted and agreed to download the RealPlayer.  MalwareBites jumped in and stopped the adWare PUP from installing.  Tried it a second time and got the same.

    I have had infections before, and Bud, it was too much performance pain and took too long to get rid of them.  Is it ok if I pass on the video plugin?

    Sorry to hear about that sfarney,

    Video is a direct embed to Youtube, so if your system is clean there should be no problem viewing it, however if not (which, unfortunately, seems to be the case) the dormant mallware might be the culprit and is giving you this message and redirecting you to further infect the system.

    I'm no IT Pro, but I think you might have a problem there in need of fixing. Best I can suggest is right clicking on the video and hitting "Copy video Url" and paste that in the address bar to view the video on Youtube directly.

    Also a thought not to go unmentioned...Google is your friend...jot your issue in the search bar, I'm sure you're not alone in that boat and there are solutions readily available.

    Again, sorry to hear about it...just had similar issue with some movie site that completely screwed up my system. I hear ya...it's a pain in the ass man.

    Ivo
