How to post an image with the Attachments system (with or without the minimum 5 posts)...

New Members with less than 5 posts are restricted from using our Image Gallery, as well as they are not allowed to post URL links, which would include links to images hosted by other websites. However, New Members may upload images via our Attachments system. Of course, these instructions are also available for anyone who needs to learn how to use the Attachment system.

When posting, you must use the New Thread button , Post Reply button or the Go Advanced button in order to be able to upload attachments.

Once you are on one of these pages, scroll down below the area where you type the message, on down below the Smilies box... down to the Additional Options section (see image of that section below). Once you are looking at that section, click on the Manage Attachments button .



Once you click on the Manage Attachments button, the Manage Attachments window will pop-up (see image of the Manage Attachments window below).

In the bottom part of the pop-up window you will see the various types of files that can be uploaded to our server and used in your thread or post. The file size limits are given along with the width and height limits for the various image file types. For example, you can upload an image file with an extension of .jpg up to 200KB (200,000 bytes) and it can be up to 1000 pixels wide and up to 1200 pixels high.



You may Upload File from your Computer by clicking on the Browse button next to the blank field and browse to where your image is located on your computer, then click on your image file and it will place the path in the blank space... OR... you can Upload File from a URL by typing in the URL link of where the file is located on the web/Internet. Once you have completed one or more of those fields, click on the Upload button

Your image is then uploaded to our server and will be shown in the Manage Attachments pop-up window and in the Additional Options section, as shown below.





Now scroll back up to the message posting area where you type your message and place your cursor within the post where you want the image to show up. Next you will click on the small arrow next to the gem clip.




This will cause a box to drop down listing all the images you have uploaded for that particular thread or post. Click on the image file you want to show in the post and it will show up as it does in the following image.



Finish your message and click on the Submit New Thread or Submit Post button.

You're all done!

Re: How to post an image with the Attachments system (with or without the minimum 5 posts)...

I'm not sure this is the right place for this question, but I'll try. I am wondering how I can make a .jpg image of my winisd plots. I figured out how to upload the file, and I know how to insert an image, but creating the image is providing to be a challenge. Could someone please advise on this? I am using Windows 7, and firefox. thanks

You need an image program. There may be free ones available... or you could use Paint. It is located in your Accessories folder. You will copy the screen with your plot by pressing the WinKey(Windows Flag) and PrtScrn(Print Screen) key simultaneously.



Paste it into Paint, then Crop it to your plot size.



Save it to a folder and then upload to your post.

Watch the size of the files.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Is there a way to make the file smaller. I guess it does not make sense why all my files are too big yet i see photos on here all the time. How do they get there files to the correct size.

I was advised to copy into something like paint( or Photoshop if you have it) and then crop to the correct size or "resize" using the pixels option. Should work that way
