Exclamation Photos - Posting help and Manipulation.

Newer to digital imaging? Wondering how to post your pics??
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OK guys .. I have nibbled away at this for the last week ... albeit rather sporadically - so excuse any oddities!!

It is not a ''bells and whistles'' deal ... just pretty straight html .... also, some parts are pretty text heavy, inevitably - so, take a look and see if there's something that might help.

To those who already ''know it all'' ... doubt you'll need any of it!

I would appreciate feedback .. tell me of glaring errors, bad links (tho I have tested it a bit) .... and then please .. any aspects you feel too difficult to interpret ...... and, what might you want added? Remember, this is pretty much a ''spare time'' deal.

I would like to find the time to try and add a few extra images here and there ... please give me any suggestions.

Here ya go then .. try ........ link also in THR Library

Posted a new thread to bring this to people's notice but maybe ... also worth a mention on this one.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Digcam choice ... addition to ''Image Matters''

I have added a New Page to ''Image Matters'' ..... to try and help further those trying to wade thru the vast selection on the market.

I have picked five quite useful web sites, somewhat at random, all of which give reviews in some form or another ..... and also in one or two cases have either a forum, glossary of terms, or even some explanatory stuff too.

I hope this might further aid folks in their quest toward make a choice, either for the first camera or an upgrade, the better to be able to take the pics of their guns and accessories.

Do please study carefully before making a purchase - I don't think there is any real quick and easy way, without possibly making a wrong decision, to be regretted later. After all .. for many of us .. getting the camera is about equivalent to another gun!! (we could have had!).

Once again .. feedback please if any thoughts on omissions, errors etc.

Dynamic Hierarchical Menu

Not sure if many will catch this ..... but have added a dynamic menu to the ''mini-site'' ..... as long as java enabled it should work for you, tho it does add a bit to download time as some scripting needs recovered from server.

If you see no menu then old text links still in place.

If anyone does go look .. feedback please. I have tested it out and seems all links OK but would appreciate any comments.

Small upgrade and addition

I have slightly enhanced the menu .. so it now shows tool-tips, which may help with selecting where you want to go look.

Also ...

A new page - where you can see two examples of effects of aperture on close-ups with respect to depth of field.

Any glitches - please let me know.

Hi -

Two sizes to be aware of - physical size on screen in pixels - I suggest nothing much bigger than 640 x 480 approx size so folks don't have to scroll.

The file size - well I suspect you may not be checking file size. JPG compression can be slight or severe - tho the harder you compress the more can me lost on decompression.

Two suggestions - get Irfanview - freebie - http://www.irfanview.com - and use it to resize pics if necessary and also choose % compression, such that file gets compressed to a reasonable size.

To know sizes you must in your file manager (Win Explorer or my computer) select to view details - it helps too to have file extensions showing. If you size to around 640 x 480 then a mid range compression should yield a file of around 50k to 75k - a good size to try for.

To give an example - if the file comes out of camera as compressed 5:1 - quite common - it could be as big or bigger than 1 Mb - which means in pure bitmap form it is about 5Mb in memory. If resized it may still be 300k let's say - so further degree of compression needed and so if that is increased to a ratio of perhaps 15:1 then we get closer to the 50k region.

As long as you can see details and so file size, experiment to achieve what will work.

I posted this link in response to someone mentioning that they didn't know how to upload pics

http://www.alumbankweb.com/img_matte...attach_img.htm


well its out of date, the "Attach File" part of the "Additional Options" doesn't look anything like that anymore.

Posting pictures

This was shamelessly copied from OnTheFly's helpful Tech Support thread over at TFL.

************************************
Uploading a picture from your computer:

As long as the image you want to display fits the following restrictions...

bmp 97.7 KB
gif 97.7 KB
jpeg 244.1 KB
jpg 244.1 KB
pdf 390.6 KB
txt 170.9 KB

...then you can click the "Attachments" button () and upload the image. Use the "Browse" function to find the picture on your system. Press "Upload" after the picture file name is shown. Wait until the upload has completed, then close the Attachment window. Finally press the Submit button that is below the "Additional Options" box after all of your text and attachments are to your liking.

If you want to display the attachment as an image in your post, or any subsequent post, you need to place the attachment URL between the IMG tags. Right click on the attachment (either picture or filename) and copy the entire URL of the attachment from the Properties window. Edit your post, and paste that URL between the IMG tags where you want it to appear in your post. Use the "Insert image" button as explained below. The line in your post will look like this:
[IMG]http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=12345&d=1209564916[/IMG]

You can also use the ATTACH tags if you don't necessarily want your attachment to show up as an image. Copy the numerical attachmentid from the URL of your picture, and paste it between the attach tags like this:
[attach]12345[/attach]

You can locate and review all of your attachments by clicking on "Attachments" in the Miscellaneous section in your "User CP" (upper left menu item at the top of every page).

*****************************

Using a picture from another internet site:

In order to display a high res photo, you need to store the photo off site (i.e., www.photobucket.com) or just find a photo on another website you would like to display in your post, but be sure it isn't copyrighted if you do. Then link to them in your post using the "Insert Image" () button. To use this button you just need to...
  1. Open the website where photo is displayed.
  2. Navigate to the image you would like to display in your post
  3. Right-click the desired image and select "Copy image location"
  4. While posting to TFL, click the "Insert Image" button ()
  5. Select or delete the entire text-box content (usually http://)
  6. Right click in the text box
  7. Select "Paste" from the menu
  8. Click "OK".

[Added 11/24/2014]
If you need to resize an image to fit on a page, use the [resize=value][/resize] tags to surround your [img]My Image URL[/img]tags. The "value" can be any number from about 100 (sort-of thumbnail size) to about 1000 (that should fit on a normal page).

Examples:


This tag group [resize=100][img]http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=162565[/img][/resize] yields:




This group [resize=600][img]http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=162565[/img][/resize] yields:

Maybe I'm just not getting it. How do I post a picture to a new thread once the same picture has already been uploaded to THR server? (And also have it be shown as a picture, not just a link to said picture.)

This should work ........ right click on the pic you want to use again and look at ''properties'' - that should give a full link for the image stored on Highroad server. Copy that to clipboard.

Then paste to embed that same link within img tags. Thus ''hotlinking'' in a sense to the image. Try it out.

Yes.

Click the Go Advanced button at the bottom of the window you type in.

Then look above at the icons at the top and click the black paper-clip.

That allows you to download photos from your phone.
So download one.

Now go back to the text you are posting and click the paperclip again.

You will see the photo file.

Click 'use' ( I think?) and the photo will be inserted in your post.

PS: This is they way it works on iPad & iPhone.
But I'm only assuming it works the same on Android.

The following two posts show how to post images from an iPad/iPhone or Android device.

To post an image using an Android device.
********************************

When posting, click the 'black paperclip' at the top to add an attachment. Then under 'Manage Attachments', click 'Choose File' under 'Upload file from your computer'. Then pick 'Documents' to find your picture to attach. After picking a picture, hit 'Upload' over on the right side of the screen.

If you don't see the "Upload" button due to the Android screen size, scroll over to the right where the controls are located.
