How to post pictures with imgbox

Post by ILikeStilettos »

Do you want to know how to create a post like this one, with many properly formatted images that can be rearranged at will with text interspersed? Do you want to allow others to selectively quote you message and resuse one or more of your images easily? Send me a PM and I will explain.

You need a couple of things:

1) Some photo editing software that allows you to rotate, crop, and reformat your image to 1000 pixels wide. Most images, even ones from a smart phone are too large, 2000-5000 or more pixels wide. These make your post blow up and are unwieldy.

2) You need to understand cut and paste editing. You will be copying, pasting, deleting and editing text that will look like it is meaningless, unless you know what to look for.

3) You need to understand two HTML codes, {img} and {/img} - except with square brackets [] and not curly brackets {}. I am using the curly ones here because if I typed the code correctly, then this post would be looking for a picture. I need to explain what to do without having the forum react to what I am trying to teach.

Refer to viewtopic.php?f=5&t=29062 to see the finished post.

THIS IS WHAT I MEAN BY INTERSPERCED TEXT. I CAN INCLUDE AS MANY PICTURES IN THE POST AS I LIKE. IT DOES NOT BURN UP SPACE ON THE FORUM. I CAN CHANGE COLORS AND FORMATTING.
