Posting pictures (how to)

By popular demand, I'm creating this thread as a quick how-to guide on posting pictures on the board. I'm stickying it so it won't get lost like all of the other threads on this subject. So, without further ado...

HOW TO POST PICTURES ON THE UKC BOARD


Step 1: Get A Picture

First of all, you need to have a picture in a digital format. If it's in your computer already, then you can move on to...

Step 2: Host the Picture

You need to have your picture hosted somewhere. What we mean by this is that your picture needs to be uploaded somewhere onto the web, such as on your own web site, a friend's web site or one of the free picture hosting services, such as hunt101.com, photobucket.com or imagestation.com.

Personally, I prefer Photobucket.com, since it's free and very straightforward to use. If you do host your picture there, just follow the steps on their web site to create an account and to upload your photos.

Once your picture is uploaded...

Step 3: Find Out The Picture's URL

Find out your picture's web address. This is the URL you need to type to view your picture. A simple way to get this is to load up the page your picture is on, right-click the picture and choose "properties" from the menu that pops up. What you need will look something like this "http://www.ukcdogs.com/res/img/example.jpg".

On Photobucket, all you really need to do is to log into your account, click on the photo you want to post so that it loads full-screen. Then, to the right of the picture, copy the line next to the "Img" label. It should look something like this:

   [img]http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/a111/youraccountname/yourpicture.jpg[/img]

Paste that line into your message board post and you're all set.

If you're not using Photobucket...

Step 4: Post The Picture

Now that you have the URL, you can inflict it on your fellow UKC board members. All you have to do is type in the url, surrounding it with the [img] and [/img] tags, so it looks this:

   [img]http://www.ukcdogs.com/res/img/example.jpg[/img]

Make sure you've copied the entire link--from the "http://" to the very end (which will be something like ".jpg", ".gif" or ".png").

The board should then display the photo automatically whenever the post is viewed, like this:




Keep in mind, however, that if your photo is removed from the hosted site, it'll cause a broken link on this board (the picture won't show up).

Trouble with images

I'm having trouble getting images to work in my posts. Used to work fine, but now when I copy the IMG link from photo bucket, it literally just pastes the link into my post and doesn't show the picture. If I click on the link after posting, I get an error message. Any thoughts on how to fix it? Thanks!
