Posting photos on these forums
I was just curious as to how you post photos in this window ??..

Your image(s) must be hosted on some web space somewhere. That can be a photo sharing site (Flicker, SmugMug, PBase, etc.), space your ISP provides along with your account, or on your own personal site through an independent hosting company..

All you need to do is paste the URL of the image into your DPR message and the picture will appear. Note that the image should be appropriately sized before it is embedded in the message...

First thing is to register with a host site, I use photobucket.com, see bottom of page,it is free to register, you then upload your photo to your page, when it is on there you will see the URL, that is the direct link address, it starts with, http and ends with jpg.you copy the url for your photo, then just past it into this page, easygood luckMichael.

I had to go to the actual Edit menu instead of just the option on the toolbar for re-size ??? This was from Photobucket for anyone else having issues with this stuff LOL..

And then of course up sizing on Photobucket might just make the pic blurry too..

Comment #9

So I found that using Photobucket and copying the DIRECT LINK with a size of appr 500 pixels or so works.

Why can't a photo stored on my pc be posted? Why must it be hosted?..

It can be just stored on your pc, but you wouldn't want it to be. For one, do you leave your computer on all the time?.

Two, do you want everybody on the Internet to have access to your computer?.

You've have to load some web server software on your computer like Apache or Windows IIs. You'd then have to have fast enough upstream to support that web servicer. For example, if you have broadband, and you should, then you might have 7 mps downstream but only half a meg upstream. Remember, when you surf the Web, you're downstreaming stuff to your computers. But, if you're hosting a web server, you'd be upstreaming to the world. That would have to have enough bandwidth and speed to support it..

Most small web servers use a connection with at least 1.5 mps upstream and T1 bandwidth. That's going to cost you at least $700 per month..

You could get by with a Cable connection like Roadrunner Turbo, but there'd be some slowdowns and Roadrunner might not like you hosting a web server. RR Turbo has a 2mbs upstream and 15 mbs down...

This one worked perfectly and what an adorable lilttle pooch!.

You should use the 'preview' button to see if the link worked or not....then you will have the option to 'edit' or 'post'..

Just trying to help.....

Most folks resize a photo to 800 on the long side for nice sized viewing. But be sure to use that 'preview' button. So many repeats is really wasting space.LucyE- 510, 40- 150, 14- 54 and ZD 35 Macro lensesU ZI owner!Olympus C30-20Zhttp://www.pbase.com/lucyFCAS Member #98, Oly Division'Photography is the art of seeing what others do not.'..

All good and valid points..

There may also be a misunderstanding by some users at first. It may wrongly be thought that the pictures viewed on the forum are stored by Dpreview. That is not the case, only the text link is stored by Dpreview, the image is always hosted somewhere else. Otherwise the image storage and bandwidth costs would have to be paid for by Dpreview..

In fact even pictures belonging to the Dpreview site may be hosted elsewhere. In particular the sample photographs for each camera review are hosted on the Fotki site.Regards,Peter..

...was the way photos are posted on sites like ebay, or photo printing sites..

I believe those sites install a small program on your pc, which lets you upload photos directly from your pc..

In any case, thanks for the information, it helps...

If you are using flickr, try this:1. make sure you are logged in2. view the image you want.3. click "all sizes" and choose the size you want to share.

4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says "Grab the photo's URL:" and copy the URL in the box.It should look like this:http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3203/2466851850_e16f922c1b.jpg.

And then paste it here, result is this:.

That program is called an FTP client. FTP is like HTTP, but meant for moving files back and forth..

I use CuteFTP because it's easy. There are many free ones..

You still have to have a place to store the images. You're moving them from your computer to a Web server someplace. You can use a hosting service or your own ISP homepage space. It doesn't matter, but it does have to be a server that is on the web, not your computer..

Now the cheapest way to do it is to FTP your images to your free space your ISP gives you. Depending on your service, it should hold a few thousand images..

The next cheapest is to use a hosting service like pbase or any of those. The downside is that they can compress your images and rename them. Some have tricky copyright phrases in their TOS where they might swipe your work..

The best way, in my opinion, is to store images on the web the way I do it. I co-locate my own servers at an ISP. I own my own domains and store my images there. I can do with them what I wish. I have a hundred or so domains and can use any of them. I informally host most images where I can post them on forum sites like this on a domain called guidenet.net.
