How to post pictures

bestlawn(6)July 5, 2007

Some people have their own server where they store pictures and post from there. If you don't have your own server, you'll need an online hosting site like Photobucket.com or Imageshack.us. Both are free, but you do have to setup an account with Photobucket. There is also a pay account option if you want to take advantage of the perks, but you don't have to just for posting pics here on the forums.

To post pics using Photobucket.......

1. Click on Browse and navigate your hard drive to where your picture is.

2. Double click your picture, and it will appear on the Browse line.

The name of my picture here is 1.jpg

3. Click on

4. After a brief moment, the screen will change and display your picture with four different posting options underneath it. You want the third option that says "HTML Tag."

When you click inside that line, it will be highlighted (as shown) and automatically copied to your clipboard.

5. Paste it right into your message box above or under your typed message. If you paste more than one pic, paste them under one another in the message box, not on the same line. So, you'll want to hit your Enter/Return key two times, then paste the next picture. You can type in between the pastings if you want.

Photobucket archives pictures for you, meaning they will stay there in your account for you to copy and paste for years to come. You can always delete them if you want. However, if you delete them while they are being hosted somewhere, they will no longer show up wherever you posted them on the internet. So, they will disappear from here on the forum pages.

To post pics using Imageshack.......

1. Click on Browse and navigate your hard drive to where your picture is.

2. Then, click on Host It.

3. It will change over to a new screen to display many hosting options. You want to scroll down and select the third line from the bottom that says "Hotlink for Websites."

4. Click on that line to highlight it, then right click the line to select copy (or cut). Paste it right into your message box above or under your typed message. If you paste more than one pic, paste them under one another in the message box, not on the same line. So, you'll want to hit your Enter/Return key two times, then paste the next picture. You can type in between the pastings if you want.

Resizing Pictures

Graphics that are too large will knock the forum page out of whack and make it difficult to read messages and replies. Please be sure to resize images that are wider than 600 pixels before posting them. If you don't have an image editor on your computer, there are many online image editing sites you can use to resize them.

If you're not sure how large your pictures are, paste them into your message box here and then you can see them after clicking preview but before clicking on submit. The preview will show your message and pictures in their entirety for your editing and resizing descretion.

Bestlawn, Your procedure makes posting pictures very easy. This should be in the lawncare forum FAQs I wish gardenweb was more responsive to its members requests in terms of upgrading pages, FAQs ect. I know you have made several suggestions that seem to fall on deaf ears. Apparently Gardenweb's greatest interest is for their pop-up advertizers. Thanks for posting these instructions.

Bill, I agree. I've emailed in an attempt to get an FAQ list started for the Organic Lawn Care forum, and to get the Organic LC forum to show up as a link on the regular LC forum. I've emailed requests several times.

How frustrating.....

Last night I had just got done running no-adware on my computer to remove any spyware. Five minutes later, I used the links in this thread to go to Imageshack and Photobucket. Immediately after leaving their websites, I noticed my computer was slower than normal. So, I ran no-adware again and presto 13 new critical spyware items kicked up.

I guess that's the price you pay for free software

It's too bad there's no way to make a posting like this "sticky" so it would stay near the top.

Does anybody know if the FAQ is still being maintained? Maybe this could be added to the FAQ.

Bestlawn,

I have lurked on this forum for several years. I've always been afraid to totally kill the old Fescue lawn and grow Kentucky Bluegrass. But I am finally ready to make the switch.

I know the best time to do this is in the fall. But do you think I have any chance of success trying to do this in the spring? I've always read your advice on KBG with great interest.

I appreciate your feedback, or anyone else's for that matter.

Stoptheweeds created a new thread for the lawn question. If anybody has answers, reply to the other thread and keep this one related to posting pictures.
