How do I post pictures?

By uploading/posting a photo within any of the threads on Irish gardeners.com, you the user, must have
(a) taken the photo yourself, and received the permission of the people in the photo
or
(b) own the copyright to the photo, and received the permission of the people in the photo.
or
(c) have the permission of the copyright owner, and received the permission of the people in the photo.

If the photo you are posting does not fall into category (a), (b) or (c), do not post the photo.

Here are the steps to posting a photo or image:
First off, make sure your photo or image is located on your computer. Makes sense Wink .

Click post reply or new topic as normal.

Next follow this method.......

Be aware that the Maximum Upload Size using this method is 256 KB in the following formats gif, jpeg, jpg, png, tga, tif ,
Any larger and the image will not appear.




There is a text based detailed explanation of this also hosted here.... http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/faq.php#39

Again, be aware that the Maximum Upload Size using this method is 256 KB in the following formats gif, jpeg, jpg, png, tga, tif.
Any larger and the image will not appear.

If taking pictures specifically for the site, you could reduce the megapixel count on your camera if you wish.
Aside from that here are just a few other ways to resize your pictures without cropping them.......

Method (1) Without installing anything extra provided you have "Paint" as part of your windows package.

Right click on the picture you wish to "shrink".
Then left click EDIT on the menu that appears.
If you have "Paint" installed this should now take you to that package.

You will then see your image sitting in the editing panel.

Left click the IMAGE button at the top of the screen, then left click STRETCH/SKEW from the drop down.
In the panel that appears you will see the stretch dimension on the horizontal and vertical are set to 100%.
Alter both the horizontal and vertical to your needs, say for example try 50%.
Left click OK and your image is reduced.

Finally left click FILE followed by SAVE AS to allow you to save the image under whatever name you wish, preferably some different to the original file name to prevent you overwriting your originals.

Method (2) Use Microsofts Image Resizer
Info about it: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/digitalphotography/learnmore/tips/eschelman2.mspx
Down load link: http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe

Method (3) Use PIXresizer - Free Image Resizer
Info on, with download link near bottom of page: http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm

______________________________________________________________

As an alternative to hosting the image on Irishgardeners.com you can post a photo from another site you are hosting already it on.
Follow this method.......

1. Make sure your photo or image is located on another website. You can try uploading your photos to a website that can store them for free like:

- www.imagestation.com
- www.photobucket.com
- www.imgspot.com
- http://picasa.google.com
- www.flickr.com

2 Now that your photos are online you need to know how to make them appear in a post. Again this is quite easy. Simply copy the address of the image into the area where you are creating your post e.g. http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j280/gardenplansireland/lichen.jpg
and place the text [img] before it and the text [/img] after it.
This is a pic of some lichen growth as can be seen in its image title above.

When you are finished it will look something like this....


A quick way to place the two pieces of text around the web address of the image is to select the web address text of the image with your mouse and press the button that says 'Img' above where you are writing the post.

This very made easy for you on Photobucket.
Under each photograph you'll see 3 boxes URL, TAG and IMG. Left click with your mouse and highlight the IMG one and then right click your mouse. Select copy. Come over to Irish gardeners and open a topic then right click your mouse again. Select paste. You should now be able to see your picture.

Now when you finish your post the images will show inside your post.

If you want to see your garden images directly within your post you can do the following in flickr....

How to post images from Flickr.
To get the URL of the actual image file, find the photo you want to use. Click the "All Sizes" button above it and select the size you want. If the photo is yours, two text fields appear below the photo. The first contains a snippet of HTML that will produce the photo on your web site, with a link back to the photo page on Flickr. The second contains the URL of the image itself. Simply copy and paste the one into where you are creating your post

Simply copy the address of the image into the area where you are creating your post e.g.http://www.flickr.com/photos/132375_0ca82ae31e.jpg
and place the text [img] before it and the text [/img] after it.

How to post images from picasa.
Should you wish to post pics from picasa here is a link to a good guide to for this operation http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2451273#2451273

If any of you Irish gardeners out there still have problems posting pics,
feel free to post a question about it in Overall discussion or send me a PM (Private message) by clicking on the PM button below, and I will see if I can upload them for you.
