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.

Am I breaking the rules by loading pictures to "POSTIMAGE" then copying and pasting the pictures to Daisy Talk? Thanks, Al

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.

All I'm for is the liberty of the individual.

I agree. Nothing irks me more than sophisticated technology that takes MORE effort to accomplish simple tasks. Kinda' takes the fun out of it!
