Title: How do I include an image in my post?
Post by: Gary Glass on October 25, 2009, 07:11:57 PM
To include an image in a post:
1. Image must be linked from a website (such as flickr or photobucket or a private website), you cannot directly upload images to the AHA Forum
2. Put the cursor where ever you want to insert your image.
3. Select the "insert image" icon from the editor tool bar, which will insert "[ img][ /img]" into your post.
4. Insert the URL for the photo you want to include in your post between "[ img]" and "[ /img]"

Searched forums but could not find -- I went to update my avatar, and it won't upload new and deleted my old.

What are the technical specs for avatars? Size and extension?

thanks!

Afraid I don't know.  Get in touch with Duncan.

Does this method require viewers to go to the third party site to view the image? When I enter the URL from google photos as described above, all I get is a question mark icon and you have to right click on that to view the picture in a separate page

I have only been able to post photos using the Tapatalk app.  Click the icon that kinda looks like a "mountain in a box" on the bottom to add a photo.

By far the easiest solution.   I've never gotten anything else to work even when it's supposed to.  And the app is free, no paying a third party host.

I used to have a moderate level of success using Photobucket, but they changed up the program to make it less user friendly, so I pretty much avoid posting pictures.

OK, I give up. How do you use Tapatalk from a laptop or PC to post pictures? Isn't it an app for mobile devices?

Yea.  I frequently use my laptop to access the forum.   But use the mobile app to post pics.  Each has its own advantages.

+1
 I also find it easier to post pictures using my smartphone with Tapatalk rather than mess with other apps to try to get pictures posted to the forum from my PC.

Ok, maybe I've got some learning to do, but I just spent 15 minutes creating a post including several links to Photobucket for the Pimp my System sub-forum and it posted just fine, but showed only the links, and not the images. Frustrating, indeed. Why can't this forum fix the software issue so we can easily post pictures like we used to be able to?

We use off the shelfmosftware and that's just the way it works.  I think we all hope for a solution.

When was that?!  I never could.  Got the Tapatalk app, difficulty resolved at my end, better things to waste my time on than banging my head against problems somebody else can't fix.

I was wondering the same...

You're right - now that I think about it I'm not sure I remember ever posting pictures to this forum... hmmm... well, good news is I got it to work with Tapatalk - thanks, guys! Now if I can just get my avatar to work...

Photobucket used to work fine here, but now forces you to be a paid subscriber if you want to use their platform to host photos which you want to link to on other sites.

An unpaid account can still post pics from photobucket. They have this God awful watermark on them though....
As for linking to outside sites I wouldn't know.
