Adding Photo's To Posts.

I was going to start a thread with a couple of photo's of my car in build at the factory but they wouldn't upload presumably because they were too large & I have no idea how to resize photos.
Any ideas?

RE: Adding Photo's To Posts.

So do you need to put them on Photobucket first?

RE: Adding Photo's To Posts.

posting to a free hosting website is the easiest way as you photos are automatically resized to suit the host. You don't have to use photobucket, any online hosting website that will also give you a URL for your pictures will do.
Open your account (free!)
Upload your photos from your camera to your PC/Laptop iPhone or iPad (Photobucket has an iPhone app that makes it even easier!)
In Photobucket there is an option to "bulk" upload (up to ten photos at a time and video) from your PC to the system
When your photos have uploaded create an album - these can be made private or public too
Once you have everything in place then open the album folder in the system adjacent to each photo there will be an Ip/direct link/ IMG code - you need to copy the IMG code to get photos into a post.
Open BabyRR and start a new post/thread
In a 2nd window/tab open your photo host and copy the IMG code for the 1st photo you want to post
Re-open the first window with BabyRR in it and paste the IMG code into the editing box
Re-open the 2nd tab/window and select the next photo you want to link, copy the code and then return to BabyRR and paste the link
Repeat for the number of photos you would like to post.
When finished Post the reply in BabyRR.
If you have an iPhone (not sure if there is an android app yet) then you can post photos direct to your albums from the camera if you have wifi or 3g access and then copy and paste the links from there into the forum directly (aren't these "smart"phones getting clever!)

Somethings to be aware of................
If you subsequently move the photo in the host website then the link to the photo on BabyRR will be lost and nobody will see the picture
You can post a link to a complete album instead of posting lots of links to pictures BUT remember to leave the album set to PUBLIC viewing otherwise nobody will be able to open the link!

Hope that helps.

RE: Adding Photo's To Posts.

There are quite a few hosting websites (just type "free photo web hosting" into a search engine and you will find lots) and even Yahoo and MSN will host but sometimes the file capacity is quite small. If you have a program like IrfanView (shareware) then you can resize your photos on your own PC and then post them using the "attachment" button in the full edit mode of the post
