Unlike E-Mail, you do not post a photo by making it an attachment. An e-mail is going directly to one person and so a photo can be attached to your e-mail

A photo in a post is public for everyone to see. Therefore it must be located on a server somewhere. You then post a link to the server.

Our own DISboards has a free photo posting site you can use. Just long on with your regular screen name and password at the photo site.

Photobucket.Com is a popular site and easy to use and membership is free.

Once you have uploaded a photo to the site, get it's URL and make a link in your post (or signature).

I have the same problem - only it tells me I'm not allowed to use URL's in my posts because I haven't posted enough yet. How many posts am I supposed to have before I can use URL's?

ISNT THERE SOME WAY TO HAVE A PICTURE ACTUALLY POSTED ON A THREAD INSTEAD OF JUST HAVING A LINK TO ONE THAT SOMEONE HAS TO CLICK ON?! :confused3

Dan Murphy

You are linking to the page, not the picture. Right mouse click on the picture, go to properties, highlight and copy the url address, come back here and paste between the img's like you have there. And welcome to the DIS. :wave:

I just tried to log onto photobucket.com so I could post some pictures but it wouldn't let me. I filled out everything that it said too and it sent me an email to confirm so I tried to complete everything and it wouldn't do it. It kept giving me an error message. I have no idea what I did wrong. Can you help me with this or can I post pictures straight from my desktop?

I also haven't been able to get anything into the signature line on my posts. Am I missing something or just that unlearned about this site? It seems like everyone has tag lines or signatures or something but me. Can anyone help?

What was the PB error??

As for the DIS photo location, not sure how to get there. I would try www.photobucket.com

bubba73
07-16-2005, 04:57 PM
The message was invalid or expired confirmation code. The site recognizes my password adn I can get on but it will not let me post any pictures. I have just now figured out how to add a picture on the side of my post where my name is. I feel like this is something that is supposed to be easy but it is not working.

:love: ::MickeyMo :love:You cannot link to a photo on your own computer. You must upload the photo to an internet server somewhere, and then link to it in your posts.

To create your user signature, click on UserCP, then select Edit Signature, then put in whatever signature you'd like to show for all your posts.

You might try using www.photobucket.com, it has a basic size edit function.

As Dan suggested you can use photobucket.com which has a rudimentary photo sizing capability. However if you want full control, you can resize the photo on your computer before upload it to a server somewhere.

If you're going to be doing a lotof photo resizing, you may want to download PIXsizer which is a free photo resizing utility. See the FAQ section here in the Tech Forum.

However, for a very seldom, or one-time need to resize a photo, I recommend you just use Microsoft Paint. It should be on your computer as part of the regular Windows pre-installed programs. It's probably located under the Accessories group.


Open Paint
Put your Photo into Paint (File, Open)
Select Image, then Select Attributes
Get the photo's current size (make sure it's set for pixels)
Generally to put a photo in a post, try to keep the height to under 300 pixels
If putting the photo in your Signature, keep the height to a maximum of 200 pixels (per DISboard signature guidelines)
Note: do your calculations for the height only and let the width be whatever it comes out to be after you reduce it.
Use a calculator and get the percent reduction you want (Example: if the current photo is 640 pixels high and you want 200 pixels, your reduction is 32% (or 200/640)) (Actually 31.25%, but round up to the next higher number)
Go to Image, then goto Stretch/Skew
Put the same percentage number in the two Stretch boxes (for both Vertical and Horizontal). Do not put anything in the Skew boxes
Your photo is reduced, select file, Save As and save your photo to a new name so you don't overwrite the full size photo
Upload the resized photo to your server and go from there

all you have to do is load the pix from your computer to the photobucket. that part should be easy. just browse, and click and it should work. (may take a while, so be patient) then, you have to cut & paste the url thing that they provide for your picture, and paste it onto your signature place on the dis. (if you want the picture in your signature part), if you just want to post a picture...just paste it onto the writing part.

i hope i'm making sense! can't wait to see what you've got. :flower:

The picture you may be looking at is the thumbnail one in the album. Click on the picture to bring up the real size. If too big, use the basic edit function there to reduce the size, then bring the reduced one here.

I have added, thru a lot of help from one of the other DIS members, a picture and a signature but the picture is not opening. All it is doing is showing the site's web address. I went into the options and made sure that it said to show the signature but nothing has changed. What else can I do?

You are missing the [img] in front of the picture, that is why the picture does not show here. Also, you are using the small thumbnail of the picture, (has the th- in it. What you want to do is just copy and paste the img code below the picture in your photobucket album. But, if you use that, the picture will not meet their rules here. If you do a simple size edit in photobucket, 50%, it should work fine. Let's see how you do.
