NOTE FOR MOBILE DEVICE USERS.

Instructions are now the same as on desktop browsers, IF the Rich Text Editor is selected in your Forums Profile (On by default). If all else fails, paste the URL of the (hosted) photo in your Forum post and will rake of that for you. Better yet, start a free blog to upload your photos.

IF YOU'RE ON A LAPTOP OR DESKTOP . . .

Let's see if we can help…

Do you share photos anywhere online? Images must be hosted somewhere for you to embed them in a forum post. If you have a Flickr, SnapFish or other online photo gallery account – or another personal/business website – upload your photos there first.

If you do not have anywhere to upload pictures, the easiest thing would be to start a blog. You do not need to use the blog for writing posts, but it will provide you with a Media Gallery for uploading photos. Visit the Media -> Add New tab in your blog dashboard to upload them. Be sure to resize the images first so you do not quickly consume your free upload space quota.

Once you have the photos uploaded somewhere online:

  1. Copy the image file location, also known as the image URL. (This is readily available in your blog Media Library for all images, or you can right click on an image to copy its location.)
  2. Start your forum topic (add topic), or draft your topic reply (post reply).
  3. Click the small Insert/Edit Image button that appears in your post editing tool bar (the small mountain & sun icon, 6th from right).
  4. Paste the photo's file location that you copied into the Image URL Field, and click insert.
  5. The image will appear in your post.

Hope this helps. Please feel free reply to this topic with any further questions.

We're happy to help, feel free to PM us and we can schedule a time to walk you through it in the chat room.

Being on a Mac or PC does not matter. Photos just need to be hosted somewhere online so you can paste in the Image URL when using the Insert Image button (the one with the small tree) in your forum post editor. We offer free Tripawds Blogs for those who do not already share pictures online somewhere.

I personally use photobucket.com but there's many other ones. I haven't tried the other ones but my guess is that they work just about the same. I have been with photobucket for numerous years now and I have no issues. Did I mentioned I'm computer challenged?

"Click the small Insert/Edit Image button (the small tree icon)."

 

I for the life of me cannot locate the button you describe above.  I have gone to my profile settings to ensure that I have Rich Text enabled and I do.  Help please.

Hi Karma,

The tree icon is above the arrow:

tool iconsImage Enlarger

If you are not seeing the toolbar you need to talk with admin guy. Unless you are on a mobile device- I don't get the tool bar on my iPad.

Hope this helps.

You will not see the editing tools on a mobile device. Are you using an iPad or your phone, by chance? The text-only editor is delivered to mobile devices due to unreliable compatibility across all platforms.

By selecting Rich Text as your default editor, you will always have the TinyMCE editor when using a desktop computer or laptop. You will still, however, get the text editor on any mobile device. If you are on an iPad, try just pasting the Image URL (image file location) on a line by itself in your post. If the image does not auto-embed (depending on its source) we can then embed it for you, or readers can click it to view the photo in a new window.

If you are indeed using Windows or Mac OS, let us know what browser you are using and send a PM with your username and password so we can log in as you and try to replicate the issue.

Hope this helps!

Aha, it's the browser.  I'm at home right now and I can see the toolbar.  But when I'm at work it's not there.  I think my work machine is on IE8.

That would explain a lot, Internet Exploder has a mind of it's own. When encountering any issues with IE 8, try viewing the site in Compatibility View, or turning that off if already enabled.

I have tried several times to upload a picture to my profile. Every time it says there was an error. I do not have a blog, and actually I don't even know what a blog is. I just want to upload a picture of my dog to my profile. Why won't it work?

Thanks, Mike

HA! Had to laugh. Whenever I see a question about doing photos, I pop over with the slim.......really, really slim.......hope that ' be able to figure out how to post a picture someday! That's been over four months now and I still have to have email my pictures in (which I also just learned how to do!) and someone posts it for me!!

You've come to the right spot......someone will hop on and shown you how.

I look forward to photos of Willow! So glad she's home!

Jerry, how about DROPBOX.  Does that qualify?  I know it gives you access to files or folders, but I don't know if it generates URLs.

Thanks, Raven's Pack

Sure! As long as the images are publicly viewable. View the image in your browser, then right click on it to copy the file location (Image URL). If it ends in .jpg and does not require a user to be logged in to view it, then copy that and paste it in the Image URL field. Hope that helps!
