pic posting problems

OK I've read the threads on posting pics and tried multiple times using Picasa and photobucket without sucess. I just keep getting a box with an X in it. It seems like it should be a simple affair, what am I missing?

Sometimes not as straight froward as it seems. A few things to keep in mind, ADVrider does not allow pictures to be uploaded onto the site. This is done to keep advrider fast and put the load of hosting on image sites that have the infrastructure investment to handle the load.

Here is the primary thread for posting pictures:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=919

Here is a guideline from memory....
1. Open photobucket or picasa (website not application)
2. View the picture that you want to post (in the size you want to post it) some sites give you different sizes but not all.
3. Right click on the picture you want in the thread
4. select "copy image location"
5. Go to your thread you want to post picture on...
6. Edit or create new thread or click on where in your thread you want your picture.
7. Select insert image button (yellow square icon with mountain)
8. right click in text field
9. select paste
10 your image should immediately appear... your done "submit"

you can PM me with questions if you like I'll try to assist.

You go to the picture that you want to post. Right click on it and click on Copy Image URL. Come back to your post and click on the "insert image" icon, it is the one with the mountains and sun. You paste your Image URL there. Preview and you can see your pic.

Good luck

Which web hosting site are you using?

I am no expert, but I've been using Picasa and it has been working for me.

when you paste, are you clicking on the picture icon (mountain icon) and pasting it in the box that pops up?

Check your PM's your image came through in the PM so whatever you did it worked!



as you can see you can grab any picture hosted using this method (as long as its not protected or Flash). If you want to get more advanced with it you can right click on an image and select inspect element that will give you a lot of info about the picture, where its hosted, etc.... NM might want to wait on that one :-)
