[BETTER EXPLANATION TO FOLLOW]

The board does not support attachments.  They're expensive and not permanent.  To post a pic, it'll have to be hosted elsewhere.  Here's how to add a pic to your post.

Save you pic at an outside hosting site (like flikr or photobucket).

Get the url of the pic.  Right click on the picture.  Click properties.  Copy the url (or address).

Paste the url into your post. 

Put [ i m g ] (without the spaces) before the url.  Then ut [ / i m g ] (without the spaces) after the url.  Clicking this button above your post will do the same thing.

Voila!  You have linked your pic.

1. Go to http://photobucket.com/ and click on "join now" to create an account.



2. While logged in to Photobucket, select "Upload Photos and Video".



3. Click on "Choose Files" and then browse on your computer to find the photo file(s) that you want to upload.  Hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple photos.



4. Photobucket will then prompt you to name and describe each picture.  If you like, add a title and description (optional).  When done, click on "Save and Continue".



5. Below the photo of interest, you will see a box called "Direct Link".  Left-click inside it to copy the link to your clipboard.



6. Now, come over to DMF and start a new post (reply or new thread).  While editing your post, click on the "Insert Image" button.



7. This will insert the "img" tags into your post where the photo will appear.



8. In between the "img" tags, paste in the link that you copied to your clipboard.



9. Click on the "Preview" button to make sure your post and photo(s) look the way you intend.



10. Click on the "Post" button to submit your post.

1. Go to http://www.flickr.com/ and click on "Create Your Account" to create an account.  If you already have a Yahoo account, you can sign in with that account.



2. While logged in to Flickr, select "Upload Photos".



3. Click on "Choose Photos" and then browse on your computer to find the photo file(s) that you want to upload.  Hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple photos.



4. Click on "Upload Photos" to begin the uploading process.    You may leave privacy to Private or Public (this affects people viewing your photos in Flickr, not when directly linked).



5. Flickr will then prompt you to name and describe each picture.  Click on "add a description" to continue.



6. If you like, add a title and description to each of your photos (optional).  When done, click on "SAVE THIS BATCH".



7. You will now see your "Photostream", a gallery with thumbnail images of your photos.  Click on the photo of interest.



EDIT: Please go to http://ducatimonsterforum.org/index.php?topic=109.msg751497#msg751497 to see the new method for sharing flickr photos.  This replaces steps 8-14 below.

8. Above the photo of interest, click on "All Sizes".



9. Select the size of interest.  Then scroll below the picture and you will see a box called "Grab the photo's URL:".  Copy the link in this box to your clipboard by highlighting, and either right-clicking and selecting "Copy", pressing Ctrl-C, or going to the "Edit" menu and selecting "Copy".



10. Now, come over to DMF and start a new post (reply or new thread).  While editing your post, click on the "Insert Image" button.



11. This will insert the "img" tags into your post where the photo will appear.



12. In between the "img" tags, paste in the link that you copied to your clipboard.



13. Click on the "Preview" button to make sure your post and photo(s) look the way you intend.



14. Click on the "Post" button to submit your post.

Is it because the hardware is expensive or because of a technical challenge?  I'd be willing to donate a 500gb hdd if that's what's holding back direct picture posting as we use to be able to do.   If so PM or reply- it don't matter which way to me.

Most of the Flounders are challenged in one way or the other, but that isn't it.

Our theory is that image hosting is a huge waste of resources, and was proven on TOB.

We don't want to own a server....and don't want to be an image host.

By eliminating the cost of the disk space on a shared server everyone wins.

But I'm lazy, which makes me a loser in so many tragically metaphysical, moral and practical dimensions.  Vote for me in '08- it worked for the last guy.

okay- I'll keep my hard drives to myself.  how about some sleep aides from Costco?   Grin


Thx Scooby!  I wondered what that TinyPIC thing was all about.

I am quite intrested to see others bikes with modifications.  So one could look and see if the mod would work for your bike.  I hear the concern re- HD space; but it is a such a good resource to "see" what someone has done or is talking about.

If I could comment on picture posting in general; the old DML picture post was not so good.

It was very slow and ackward to flip quickly through pics, you could't fast  forward.  There gotta be a simple good solution out there ... 

Cheers DuciD [moto]

I just opened up a Picasa account.  Could someone tell me how to post a pic using Picasa?  I did the whole insert image thing and pasted the picasa url.  After hitting "save" I get a little icon on the right side of the screen but no pic.

Thanks in advance!

Now that I figured the linking to a host stuff out I like it.  Some more work, but better quality.  I can live with that.

After you click on link to photo, you will get a bunch of code under "HTML to embed in website", select the size you want, then past the entire "HTML to embed in website" code to DMF.  next delete everything before http: and after .jpg.  Lastly add [i m g] before and [ / i m g] after (without the space) and you should be good to go.

Flickr accounts are free, so it's easiest if you set up an account for yourself. Flickr also has a concept of "groups" which are collections of photos from many people's accounts - we've been using one for a while for the Oz Monsters local board.

I've just set up a Ducati Monster Forum group, so if you've got pics in a Flickr account that you'd like to add to the DMF group, join up and add them.
