Guide To Posting Images In Thread Starter Posts and Thread Replies.

1) WARNING
Firstly because of hot linking, bandwidth, copyright issues and images possibly being changed by the original hosts, please make sure you are saving the correct image to your desktop and before hosting them on another website.Once the image is on your computer, you'll need to use a free hosting site, such as photobucket.com or tinypic.com/ or imageshack.us to upload and host them on.

Browse your desktop or folders for the image you want to upload to one of those sites, then click "Upload".

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm208/raymanbucket/uploadimages1.jpg

Once that's completed, a URL or web address will automatically be created for you to copy and paste in the forum as above 'Direct Link' for deal submissions or 'IMG Code' for forum thread replies.


2) Saving An Image: If you're going to use an image from another website, hover your mouse pointer over the image you want to show, right click over it and choose 'Save Image As' in FireFox of 'Save Picture As' in Internet Explorer, then save it to your desktop or to a folder where you can easily find it again later for uploading.


3) Posting An Image When Submitting A Deal: In the 'Link To Image File' field for the Hot Deals, Freebies, Competitions and For Sale or Trade forums: Byhovering your mouse pointer over the image and right clicking, choose either 'Properties' at the bottom of the right click menu in Internet Explorer or 'Copy Image Location' in FireFox or 'Properties' in Internet Explorer, you need to highlight the image Address or URL completely and copy it by right clicking over it once it's all been highlighted. FireFox is easier, as you only need to click on "Copy Image Location".

Image Hosting Sites
Whichever image hosting site you use you'll find other edit options, to resize or crop your images for example.
Some allow you to paste in the web address of images directly without you having to save them to your computer.

You'll soon find them quite easy to use, please remember to check that you have them set to 'private' if you don't want all your images showing up.

WARNING: If you use the original website's domain image location, web address or URL, they have been known to change and display pornography or spam images. That's why it's always in your best interest to save the image you want to your computer and then to host it on a trusted image hosting site.

Agreed :thumbsup:

This is the only forum site i've seen without 'Stickies', at least topics like this that come up often

OK thanks for trying to help me out - I have uploaded the images from my computer to Imageshack, and as there are quite a few pictures of the jeans, I have an awful lot of codes, 3 per item it would appear...

Can I put them all on the same ad, separated by a comma, or am I posting the wrong code?

I am not sure about the comma, but you have used the correct code.
Just copy the codes one by one, and paste them into a reply box on HUKD.

You can see what your post will look like before you submit it by selecting "Preview Post" or "Go Advanced" depending on which reply box you have used.

Can you post small gif files in a thread?



Yes, exactly the same way you post a normal image.

windows paint fux JPEG leaving it all pixely. PNG (the Windows 7 default btw) does not have this problem.

how can i upload if coment is blocked

Hi there,

I have the images link now. Where do I upload? I cant comment as its been blocked now.

Using a iPad/iPhone or similar device for uploading images

For this example i shall use a iPad and photobucket. However there are other apps such as flickr, imageshack etc which can also be used which are very similar


Step 1

Navigate to the app store and search for the Photobucket app. (This is a free app, you will need an account which you can create very quickly)

http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll228/syzable_album/test/6ed97cd0.jpg

Once downloaded and account created, navigate to your album and click the up arrow to select the source of your upload. You can then either select a picture from your photo album on the iPad or take a picture there and then

http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll228/syzable_album/test/8a376436.jpg

Once the picture is uploaded it will appear in your album like below

http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll228/syzable_album/test/83a7c2eb.jpg

Tap on the picture you wish to use and then tap on the chain link button and you will get a dropbox with your image link. Just tap to select which code you wish (Direct, IMG etc) and it will instantly copy for you.

http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll228/syzable_album/test/a160c4c3.jpg

All you need to do then is navigate to your thread in your browser and following the same process as post #1 in this thread and paste your image into the thread or selected image box.

can anyone please help me?

i'm trying to upload a picture into the comments box to show an alternative colourway of a chair that i posted as a deal this morning.

what i've done so far...............

i've opened an account with the image host site Slickpic
i found the pic i needed on google images & uploaded it onto slickpic
i clicked on the share this photo option & then clicked the copy link (the picture's url is shown in the box)
it then says it's copied
when in the hukd comments i click on the picture in the menu to the top right which opens up the link window
i paste the copied url into the box & return to the comments area
the url is shown here, but no picture is present

i have tried clicking on the link option instead of the picture option, but i only manage to get a link posted

i've no idea where i'm going wrong & i'd be grateful for any advice

wow, thanks for your quick reply.

i'm pretty hopeless at this links stuff, so sorry in advance for being a numpty.

here goes..........

i clicked on properties of the photo as it is shown in the slickpic gallery shows url as this pics-akamai.slickpic.com/MjY…jpg

not sure if this is the one you asked for, so also went back to the original photo from google images & the url for that is

i.pgcdn.com/pi/…jpg

hope this will help?

thanks for your replies & suggestions, fanpages, realblender & jumpingphill. sorry to be so long before getting back to the thread, i had to get back to work 'till now.
thanks realblender for explaining things & for kindly posting the pics for me - that was a nice surprise to see them posted. i appreciate you taking the time to try & help me. hopefully. i'll get it right next time.

jumpingphill, the reason i uploaded the piccy from google images was because i was advised by a mod by the name of barky to use this method when i asked for help on how to add a pic when i posted a deal. i have used the method he advised every time since then whenever i needed to add a pic (the picture in the top right in the deal header, along with the price). i assumed that was how everyone else uploaded their pics.

should i just right click on the image & then on the save picture as (just worked out that it's possible to do that). but i still have to upload them to an image hosting site (i've read warnings about porn/spam images appearing instead of the planned pics if you just paste the link directly?) & copy & paste from that site to the (hukd) forum, is this correct?

glad to know that my ignorance gave you a little amusement (_;)

You could right-click & copy the address (or "image location", depending on which web browser you use) from the original source web site then use that as the image reference when embedding an image.

This is known as "hotlinking" or "inline-linking". The resultant image displayed in a comment is, however, then outside of your (& everybody else's) control & the original site owner could, potentially, remote the image or change it to something inappropriate.

Hence, the suggestion to copy an image, upload to somewhere under your control, & then use the resultant image location instead is the preferred option.

thanks for your replies fanpages & jumpingphill. sorry i couldn't get back to you earlier, but my broadband connection decided to go on strike (supporting the doctors, possibly) & it's only now that a nice lady from talk talk has managed to get things going again.

fanpages, thanks for explaining about hotlinking. i had heard the term, but didn't know what it meant.

what i don't understand is why it's ok (and easy) to paste the link for the pic straight into the box without having to save it to an image hosting site when actually posting the deal? is that pic protected somehow from being swapped by the original site owner? if this is the case, why doesn't the same thing apply to pasting the pic into the comments area?

Jumpingphill, no offence taken (ahem, i might have had a very slight lapse in my sense of humour at the time) & yes, i see now where you're coming from with the joke about the chair changing colour & position. i did mean to add the links for the same colourway as examples for realblender in reply to his question & got things a bit jumbled up!

you may have noticed that adding any sort of link is not exactly my strongest point............... X)

anyway, i really appreciate all the help, comments & advice given. thanks

ah, that explains it then. it's amazing the speed that hukd manage to host the pic themselves & get it uploaded back onto the deal page. i wish i could be as efficient.....
