Resizing and Uploading Photos from your Computer

Postby Helen » 15 Mar 2017, 13:04

Listed below are ways in which you can upload photos from your computer, tablet or mobile phone. 
 First, you will need to reduce the size of the photos you want to upload. Images should be less than 3 MB or no more than 1024 x 768px to be accepted on the forum.  If you are unable to reduce the size of photos, contact us and we will upload them for you.

If you want to upload a video to the forum, you will need to upload it to a third party site (like Photobucket or YouTube) first and then give the URL link to it in the text of your message.

A.  Drag and Drop method of adding photos (this is the easiest method)
                       
1.  Open the box in which you wish to write a new message or reply to an existing message.  
     2.  Click on the 'Attachments' tab (found below the text area).
     3.  Click on 'Add Files', find the photo you want to upload and drag it on to the text area and drop it there.              
     4.  Click the ‘Place inline’ button and you will see the file name of your photo added to the text area.  You can then repeat steps 3 and 4 to add further photos.
     5.  Finally, click 'Submit' to send the completed message with your photo to the forum.
  
 B.  Alternative Method of Adding from your own folders on your computer.
      1.  First, open the box in which you wish to write a new message or reply to an existing message. 
      2.  In the green boxes above the text area click 'Img’,  and in the text area you will then see 'img' in brackets , like this — Image 
      3.  Click on the 'Attachments' tab (found below the text area).
      4.  Click on 'Add Files', and then double-click on the photo you want to add.  The file should appear in the Attachments box.
      5.  Click ‘Place inline’ and the file name will be added in between the two sets of brackets.  Repeat steps 2 through 5 to add further photos.
      6.   Finally, click 'Submit' to send the completed message with your photo to the forum.
