New Members: please upload photos using our photo hosting facility - details below. Our Forum host Forumotion automatically blocks links to websites posted by New members, to prevent spamming.  This includes Web links to photo hosting websites

Update, Servimg has added a drop down list for resizing photos before uploading. You need to scroll through and select 640px width otherwise your photos will be too large to fit on the page

Please Note: Forum members might not click on links if you use an external photo hosting site for your photos, because we have found unsavoury adverts and pornography displayed on some foreign websites, and because some websites automatically delete photos if they are not viewed regularly and so we lose that important reference material on this forum, so please use our photo hosting facility instead.

New photo hosting format -

Click photo hosting icon

How to upload images to your posts Photo_12


Click Select Files and choose the photos you want to upload from your photo albums
Scroll down to select 640 px width so they are the right size for our forum
Click Send all
Click Insert all

This will upload all the photos in the large format.
If you want thumbnail sized photos instead, then choose the third URL string on each photo and click the icon at the end (one at a time)

Edited to add: They've upgraded the photo hosting facility, so if, after uploading your photos, you click any of the icons to the left of the three photo URLs (now moved to the right) it will automatically paste that URL string in the comment box. You can click them without having to Preview each time, although sometimes you have to re-position the cursor in the comment box because it doesn't always load the photo if there are a lot of them.

If you are using a mobile phone then the website can be viewed in the Web (Classic) version or the Mobile version.

Uploading photos in the Mobile version:

First click the group you want to post in. Eg, For all Pottery ID queries please use the ID My Pottery group
Click on the pen icon in the bottom right corner

Fill in the Title of the post, and a description in the message box, then click the camera icon in the top right corner of the page which brings up the Servimg photo hosting box

Select files from your phone’s Photo files.
NB. It’s best to edit the photo before uploading to reduce its size, and because the default orientation is Landscape format so your Portrait image may load sideways.

Choose Photo Library

Before clicking Send All, click the bar that says No, (situated between the URL and Send All buttons), and scroll down to choose 800 px (for forums). Otherwise your photos will be too big to fit the message box.

Click the Insert All button that appears after the photos have loaded successfully. That will post all the photos, in full sized format, in the message box.

If you wish to post a mix of full size (middle URL) and thumbnail (bottom URL) photos instead, then click the icons in the front of each photo URL instead of using Insert All

Finally click Send. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a Preview button on the Mobile version, but you should be able to edit the message after posting it on the forum using the pen icon in the bottom left hand corner of the message box. Or switch to the Web version

Please note, there is a limit on the maximum number of simultaneous uploads on the photo hosting facility. Currently it is set to a max of 3 at a time

Please note that while New Members can post photos from their camera roll/albums, they cannot post links to online photo albums such as Photobucket and Flickr because of an automated anti-spam 7 day block on posting Links to external websites and emails. In such cases you will see this message -

If you are having problems uploading photos please ask a Moderator for help.

How to upload images to your posts Empty Where is the photo upload icon please?

Post by kanda September 15th 2022, 1:49 pm

Hi,

I'm new. I have tried posting a new topic under ID my glass but can't see where the upload icon is for photo's. I've read the upload photo instruction but still can't see mention of where the icon is or what it is and the form goes on to a polling form. What am I missing please?

Thanks

My apologies, I will edit the instructions for this section. The icon is this one -

If you're not seeing the tool bar then you may need to change your browser

If you’re uploading from a mobil phone then it’s best to change to the Web version so you can see the whole tool bar. Otherwise the photo icon is situated above and to the right of the toolbar
