Uploading Photos

In order to protect our site and server, Daisy Talk doesn’t allow for direct uploading of photos.

There are several free photo upload services available (i.e. imgur.com) which will allow you to upload photos. 

Then, in the text of your message, just refer others to that internet address by clicking the photo icon which looks like a tree (above) and placing the link to view your photos.  

We appreciate your understanding.  Administrator.

I have much trouble trying to post photos with a message.

First, you mention "clicking the photo icon which looks like a tree[above]"

I see nothing like that icon, can you be more specific please?

Thank you and regards, gkenny.

I have been copying and pasting my photos from the "POSTIMAGE" site where I have uploaded my pictures. Are you saying that is not acceptable? I have tried to access the pictures from other members who have used the method you described and it takes a long time to get the pictures and more than half of the time, no picture comes up. I belong to a dozen or so air gun and knife collection sights and they have an easy way to put pictures up right from their site. I guess I don't understand why only Daisy Talk has a such a problem with pictures. Thanks, Al

The "Quick Reply" box that appears at the bottom of threads does NOT have the tree icon.  To see it, you need to use the Reply button (with the lower left pointing arrow) that is on the last post in the thread.  Then you'll get the complete Reply form, with the tree icon.

Here is a picture of the Reply form.  I took a screen shot of it, loaded it to imgur.com, then copied the link back into the form that opens when you press the tree icon.  



This is what the image form looks like:



You paste the url you get from the image hosting service into the Image URL box, and press the Preview button.  Then you can adjust the width and height of the picture if it is obnoxiously large.

This is what my imgur session looked like after I loaded the picture you see above:


The 'Direct Link' box holds the address you'll need in the Tree form.  Just press the copy button, then back on the tree form paste it in the box.  That's about all there is to it. 

Hope this helps!  

Vince

I just can't understand why it is so difficult to post a simple photo on such a great forum and a forum which benefits so much by a photo!

I have been trying for almost one year following the directions and just can not do it.

Apparently there are many others in my boat, maybe someone who can do something to change the method should come forth with a solution...PLEASE!

Thank you and regards, gkenny.

Hi Vince, I tried the method you show here with Imgur, and all I got when I tried to review, was a message that the photo could not be attached...I give up!

Thank you for your effort, but I just can not do it!

Regards, gkenny.

Hey gkenny, I'd get that when I picked the option for "Image Link" instead of the option for "Direct Link".  Also, you have to get rid of the http:// that is already in the Tree form's Image URL box. before you paste the picture's address.  Let me know if neither of these help, and I'll try to think of what else might go wrong.

By the way, that was a heck of a repair!  If you'd like, I'll post your picture into that thread.

Thank you Vince

Please post the photo for me, I would really appreciate it! I tried about 6 times using Tiny Pic and Imgur, nothing worked on my Mac.

There may be someone who would like to try it and I can help them as I am always helped here.

Regards, gkenny.

I always used  Photo Bucket but seems they made a lot of changes, It look's like there going from free to fee.  Some of the other forum members are using TinyPic but I haven't tried it. I think  The Museum
should post a list of free eligible picture download sites, other then the one mentioned. Always nice to have a choice

I have been using POSTIMAGE, it is easy to use, free, and there is no advertising. But I still haven't been able to find out if that is an acceptable way to post pictures on Daisy Talk. It sounds like Vince wants us to use some round about method of posting pictures on a site then provide a link to that site (in the thread) and the viewer could hit on that link and be taken to the sight where the picture was stored. I have found that the picture comes up much less than 50 % of the time plus you have to go through the same process to view each picture if there is more than one. When I find that method on a thread, I don't waste my time. Thanks, Al

Well, let's clarify.. that's not what "I" want, it is just the way this forum is set up.  Also, and very importantly, when you do the steps I talked about, the image appears *in the post*.  The post viewers don't have to go anywhere else to see the image.  

Unless I'm wrong, that is.  Did you have to go to an external link to see the pictures I posted about the process of posting pictures?  I didn't.. but maybe others do have to.  I never considered that it wouldn't display the same for anyone.  Please let me know if you have to go back to imgur to see the pictures. 

The bottom line is to get an image in a post, you first put it somewhere that gives it a web address (imgur etc.), then paste that web address into the window that opens when you press the tree icon in the regular reply box.  That imports the picture into the post.  The process works every time for this Windows user.  I don't have a mac to try it on.

I use IMGUR.com to post pictures. Go to IMGUR.com and lad or drag picture then cut and past link in you post. Its easy to use for everyone.

I love this forum but since photobucket.......well..... kicked the bucket for me, I just can't be bothered to try and figure out another convoluted way to post pics on here. There are too many other airgun forums that take pics right off my PC. Ya'll will just have to email me for pics if the time comes that you want them.

That is what I do now. For me POSTIMAGE is easier to navigate than some of the others I tried and it is free.

I never understood or agreed with the ban on direct photos to this forum.
Protection from what? I think such a ban only serves to reduce the free flow
of interest and information sharing. Makes no sense. How does you tube and face book
protect themselves, allowing photos and videos?

Well, just my 2 cents worth, but consider the fact that this forum was set up how long ago, using technology from how long ago, by a museum with quite likely no IT staff or budget, that charges nothing for its forum hosting services. There isn't even advertising on here! So, imho, please be gentle, and kind of appreciate we have this forum at all! But that's just my opinion.

I fall somewhere in the middle. I visit this forum almost daily and participate often.....but I participate more on another forum because I don't have to (or want to) jump through any hoops to post pics I'd like to post. I don't even notice the ads on that other forum. Guess I'm just used to ads near everywhere you go on the net.

Yep, I'll definitely agree it isn't ideal!  I'm just sayin you get what you pay for.  ;)  

The museum isn't getting a dime off of us *or anyone* for this forum.  If they did, then I'd say there was more of a leg to stand on complaining that posting pictures is using old technology.  But this forum isn't even someone's hobby.  There doesn't seem to be anyone looking in and seeing how things are going.  It seems to be something that was set up and let have a life of its own years ago.  Maybe if Museum staff actually used the site, they'd "feel the pain" of how pictures are posted, and maybe do something about it. But I don't think the look in or use it at all. 

On the sites that have advertising, that means there's at least someone paying attention to the business at hand, the site, more actively monitoring and moderating etc.; much more inclined to keep up with changes and technology.  They have to monitor it at least some, to make sure nothing happens that will drive off the advertisers.  It is a business.  This site isn't a business, it is a favor.

So, who here wants to contribute to a pool of money to bequeath to the Museum, earmarked for them to (probably hire a consultant to) upgrade the software (probably cost some more money there) that runs this forum, so pictures can be more easily posted?  My wag is it'd take a couple of thousand bucks.  Or, any savvy web folks have the knowledge to step up and volunteer?  Personally, I wouldn't know where to begin.

Alright, I'm done with my soapbox.  Sorry for the rambles.  I'll slink back to the workshop and get back to installing new springs, and rebuilding 1894s :)  

Happy shooting and Daisy-ing to all!

I don't think there is any  problem using postimage, if there was i'm sure someone from the museum would chime in. so far postimage seems simple enough to use, try it out ! tomorrow who knows.

Heh. Just wasted 20 minutes of my short time on this Earth trying to figure out how to upload images from postimage to this site. I was even following the directions posted on this thread. I'm sure there is a way to do it. They just don't make it user friendly to do it........either there or here. The reason that some great ideas slowly fade and die is stuff like this. I will still visit here. I like it here.....in spite of this policy about posting pics. That said, I spend more time elsewhere........precisely because of their policy about posting pics.

Man, Fuse, what errors or problems were you facing?  I'm using postimages.org, and doing it is a snap.  The longest part is getting it to postimage.  Once it is there, it is just a matter of copying the "Direct URL" address into the image editing box that pops up when you push the tree icon.  

Maybe there is one thing missing.. you have to press "preview" once the picture URL is loaded, in order for it to get into the post.  Might that be the missing step?  

By the way, I did a google search, and a while ago there was a big problem with .jpg files (those containing images), carrying virus payloads.  Sure, technology has come a long way since then, but That's the reason this "hoop to jump through"  happened, so long ago.

To post photos:

1. First upload your desired photo to a hosting site.  I use Imgur.  Others here use Postimage.

2. When you reply to or start a thread and you want to post a photo, type in your comment, then move your cursor to where you want the photo to appear in your post.

3. Click on the Tree icon in the first row above the window where you put your text (6th icon from the left).

4. This will open a pop-up window titled "Image Properties."

5. In this pop-up window, you will see a blank space in the upper right with a pre-filled "http://" in it.

6. The site where your image is stored will display several types of links that you can copy and use.  Copy the "Direct Link" link.

7. Paste this copied link in the blank space mentioned in #4 above.

8.  If you have a double http:// delete one of them.

9. Just to the right of the blank space where you copied the photo link, click on the rectangular button labeled "Preview"

10. This will cause a preview of your image to open.  It will look YUUUUGE, but that's OK.  It will look normal sized in your post.

11.  At the bottom right of the "Image Properties" pop-up, you will see a rectangular button labeled "OK"

12.  Click on that button and your picture will be visible in your post.


This all sounds more tedious than it is, so give it a try and don't get discouraged.
