Re: how do you post pic? 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
Only registered users can post a photo on Relichunting.Net. If you are not registered, do so at the home page.

Here are two ways registered users can post a photo on the Relichunting.Net Forums.



Method #1

Log in to Relichunting.Net.

Click on the Forums link.

Click on the Forum you want to post in.

Click on the "NEW THREAD" button.

Enter the Post Title and the Body of your message.

You should be able to see a box at the bottom of the page that says "SELECT IMAGE FILE TO ATTACH".

Click the BROWSE button and look for the file on your computer.

When you find it click on it and then click OPEN.

That will take you back to your message then click SUBMIT when you are happy with it.

You should have posted your message now. If not, you will possibly get a message telling you your photo was too large.

Your image file can be maximum (width x height - size): 2000x3000 - 700 KB so if it is larger than that you will need to re-size it.

There are various software programs available to do that for free. I use GIMP. It is FREE software. Download and install it on your computer and then you will be able to re-size your picture, save it, then post it. There are other programs out there as well that do the same thing.

The ideal width for a forum photo is 600-800 pixels wide.



Method #2

You need to use a third party service like Photobucket . Photobucket is free. Upload your photo similar to the above method. Copy the link to the photo and paste it in to your message. Make sure you copy the BB code link that includes the IMG tags in your link, otherwise it will not display.

Also to re-size your photo to fit the forum use the same method as above. If you need help send an email to admin@relichunting.net.

Both of these methods require a little practice to perfect. Try it a few times and if you still have trouble make a post in the "Getting Started" Forum and ask for help.

One issue with third party services is that they may go out of business and leave you with dead links on your posts (like Geocities did), or you might forget you have links to the photos and delete them which will also cause a dead link.



Multiple Photos

If you use a third party service like Photobucket you can add links to multiple photos on each post. See Method #2 for details.

You can combine multiple photos in to one for uploading on to you post if you do not use the third part method above. Photo editors such as LViewPro and GIMP are recommended for this option. These software packages require a little practice to perfect. Try it them and if you still have trouble PM me and ask for help.

The easiest way to post multiple photos is to add multiple post replies. Just reply to your own post and upload another photo.
