A pictorial guide to putting a Photobucket* picture into a forum post.

(*Other hosting sites are available - although not many these days)

Assuming you have uploaded your picture successfully as detailed above, you then need to seek out the appropriate link. This is NOT the text displayed in the browser's address bar but one of the sharing links.

The one you are looking for is usually called either IMG or possibly BBcode:

Here are two different Photobucket views:





On other sites you may first need to find the share button, usually an upwards arrow, such as shown bottom right on Flickr



and then find the BBCode:



Select all of the text within the box and copy it. On some sites merely clicking the box will do the copy for you, otherwise use your operating system's method (e.g. CTRL-C in Windows) but it's important to copy the entire string, not just the text that is visible.

Now go to your forum post and simply paste in the string:

At its simplest it will look something like this:



or could be more complex like this:



It looks messy but done correctly the picture will appear in your post once you have entered it.

Why do I see this ugly Photo Bucket message "please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting" on well over half the post on this website? Do the photos that were originally posted just disappear from Talk Morgan until the poster pays ransom to these bozos?

The short answer is "Yes".

As an alternative you can use http://tm-img.com/

It is powered by Chevereto image hosting software, which seems to be one of the best in its class, and has been set up specifically to host images for Talk Morgan. It is administered by TM members and funded, like Talk Morgan itself, with donations from members.

The TM Image Library is not open to direct public viewing as we don't want it to become another Botophucket: you must create an account in order to view photos uploaded by members or upload photos yourself, this does not exclude viewing the photos by direct links in any forum or any other sharing method. The photos are automatically resized for easy insertion in the forum.

In due course full instructions will be developed but it is pretty easy to use. If you have any problems you only need to ask.

Here are some instructions for using the new TalkMorgan image hosting service to show your pictures.

1. Preamble
I assume that you are familiar with using the internet, your computing device, and understand the operating system, browser, and picture management software that you use.

This guide has been prepared using a Mac, running Safari as a web browser, but the principles are pretty much transferable to other computers

2. The Image Hosting Service
As Peter has explained in his earlier posts, the new service uses a SaaS (Software as a Service) offering called Chevereto. It is a paid-for service, and we'll be asking for contributions once Peter has sussed out the best way to handle the payments.

The web address (more properly referred to as the URL or Uniform Resource Locator) for the site is http://tm-img.com

3. Creating an Account
When you first visit the site, you will be prompted to enter your userid and password - which at this stage you will not have. So before you can do anything, you must set up an account. To do so, look for a button or link labelled "Create Account"



Depending on your browser rendering, it may not be at top right of the screen as displayed here. On an IOS device, for example, it's a link at the bottom of the screen.

When you click on the link you will need to provide an email address, a username, and a password. You will be sent an activation link to the email address you specify, so make sure you use one that you can actually access. For your Userid, use your TalkMorgan handle. That way we can check those people who register and keep out spammers, trolls, and other ne'er-do-wells. If for some reason you can't use you TM handle due to special character restrictions, then go for something as close as you can get.

Once you have registered, you'll be sent an activation link, at which point you'll be ready to upload images.

4. Uploading Images

This is a very simple process, the only thing you have to be aware of is that images must exist as separate files on your computer. You can't upload direct out of photo management software like the Photos application on a Mac. So your first job is to export it from the management program to somewhere handy on your computer. Other software packages may not require this, if you can see a .jpg file somewhere then you're in business.

When you click on the 'Upload' link at the top of the screen, you have 4 methods of uploading:



I find it easiest to use the 'Browse from your Computer" option, and when you click on this it loads up your computer's file manager (Finder on a Mac, File Manager on a Windows machine). Use this to navigate to the file you want to upload. In this example, I have placed a screenshot picture on my desktop that I want to upload.



Make sure your image is 6MB or less. To reduce the size of your photo, use your photo manager software. Each app will do this in different ways (which is why you need to be familiar with your computer). For example, on a Mac running the Photos app, When you do the file export, select the Large option rather than leaving it original size. The picture below was 5.9MB originally, but exporting it as large size reduced it to less than 600KB



Once you've selected the image, you can specify a category for it. Please adhere to the Terms and Conditions when it comes to uploading images, we can delete images and block people who abuse the service.

4.1 Migrating Images from other Services

If you use the 'Image url' upload option, it enables you to load images into tm-img that are currently elsewhere on t'internet - such as you Botophucket account if it's still working. Just go to the image that you want to load up, copy the url, and paste it into the box. This uploads a copy of the image, leaving the original in its location.



5. Displaying Images in TalkMorgan

This is the easiest bit of all. Once your image is uploaded, scroll down and select the Embed Codes link. Now move your mouse down over the 'BB Code' section and a little 'copy' button will appear



Click on the copy button, switch to your TalkMorgan post, and paste the link into place.

That's all there is to it! Enjoy...

It may be a good idea to pin this to the top of the forum so it is easily retrievable (and before it disappears down the list of active topics)

It already is, Alan. Good thinking, though.

Tim. Great job, I had not even thought of the differences on a Mac.

We can increase the maximum upload size to 6MB. I had thought 5MB would be enough. If you can still edit the instructions please do so.

Thanks for the good work.

To be honest Peter, I think 5MB is plenty for images that are going to be viewed on line in a browser. With modern cameras shooting at 12MP and upwards, we'll be gobbling up disk space like nobody's business if we relax the limit too far, and it's not exactly hard to save a smaller version of a picture.
