Title: Inserting pictures
Post by mitch j on Jul 27th, 2013 at 11:29pm
G'day all;
I've been trying to figure out how to insert pics within the post instead of having to put them all at the end.I go to the "insert image" icon,right click for help,& it says "select the image direcrory". I cant seem to work out what to do next. Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Pictures that are on your own computer can not be "inserted" into a post. In order to use the "insert" function you must first have your pics uploaded to a web site like flickr.com or photobucket.com (you need to sign up with them)

Then, using 'insert' you add a link to the picture within your post. Your photobucket account provides the necessary link. When the post here in the forum is viewed the pictures will be where the links have been placed.

Was just addressing this on the hanger post... If you don't have any program (such as might have come with your digital camera) that allows you to adjust your pictures, you'll have to join a site like photobucket.com Click Here 

It's free and then you can load your pictures on photobucket and then insert them, as Dave describes here, into your posts.

HPA (HipPocketAeronautics.com) also has a picture resizer.  It's free to join HPA also. They're a sister Stick and Tissue modeler's site.  Click Here

If you need any more assistance just ask and we'll do what we can to help you to find a solution.

Just learned something new (to me)  If you are using Microsoft 7 you can resize a picture through this program.

Thanks to Jim for this info:

I switched to W7 when XP ... my favourite system - was discontinued but I seem to get along okay with it in general.
Downsize a pic?  Right click, go to 'Edit' ... then the resize option on the toolbar that comes up.

For a little clarification... Right click on the picture to be resized.  When box opens, go to 'Edit' this will open new window and the option toolbar that comes up will allow to resize by percentage or pixels!  Thanks again Jim!

What size are we shooting for when we resize the pixels. I know about the 400kb, but is that what will be shown on the edit function?

The 400 kb is the file size.  When re-sizing your photos, use the pixel sizing entry in the menu and the 1024 x 768 pixels (usually in a drop down menu) if the pic is in the landscape mode and swap the numbers if in portrait mode.  This is the size I use.

If you've cropped (trimmed) the photo from its original size to get rid of unwanted content, just enter 1024 in the first box and make sure that the "maintain proportions" or "keep aspect ratio" box is checked.

The 1024 x 768 pixel size is a good choice in that the photo will be big enough for us blind as bats members to still see detail while keeping the file size manageable (usually between 120-250kb).

Some more info on file size.

You can have two photos, shot with the same camera with the same basic settings (Example: camera set at 2 megapixel, flash off).  One is a simple, say, airplane with a two-color scheme on a single color background and the other is two planes with a bunch of detailing and multi-color schemes - also on the same single color background.  Photo #2 will have a higher file size than the first simply because there is more information in the file - even tho both are the same physical size.

Jim and Pete this is my first try at resizing, I used paint and it works. I tried to just right click this edit but the function did not appear so I then went to paint:

There ya go!  I've never used the "right click" method as I've always had some kind of photo editing program as well as "paint".  I never got into "Paint" as it is just too limited (or was - Windumb7 version seems MUCH nicer than the previous versions).
