How do pix get uploaded here?

Postby rattler » Mon Feb 04, 2008 8:32 am

Or, more general:

How to attach pix to the posts: Do they go into a database and can be used by all? Or do we refer to our own machines? Any size/format restrictions?

Anyway, what must I do to get a pic to appear in a post?

When posting a new post you have an "upload attachment" thingie below the window you're writing in. That will help you along. AFAIK it does tell you about size limitations.

Correct, currently we have the size limited to 256KB and a limit of 10 pics per post. But if needed, we can change that. Currently we still have the problem that they aren't properly displayed, instead you get this annoying scroll window. We hope to have that fixed soon.

ok, experimented a bit, if you place stuff inline per the button and then correct position manually the result is acceptable (see viewtopic.php?f=8&t=22)

I actually like the scroll window quite a bit. If you click on it it goes away and shows the picutre in full view. Then if you click again it goes back to a scroll window. I think that will be quite helpful for when people post pics that are too wide; it will keep the rest of the page from becoming hard-to-read.

While true, I think mods should simply resize those pics and pass a slap on the hand to the offender: Saves bandwith and educates ppl for thinking about that.

True, but with the scroll window the mods don't have to spend their time policing it and sometimes a big picture is helpful. Especially if it's a detailed shot of a crash scene for the armchair investigators.

At any rate, we don't have to agree, but I'm a fan of the click-on/click-off scroll window.

I have to agree with Halfie on this. It's more comfortable to scroll a page down when you saw the pictures already the time before you again are reading new threads on the same page.

Didn't we determine on the last forum that we were manly long-lost soulmates? Just more evidence pouring in.

Yep, and so is Katie to me! Perhaps, this we have to find out, she's a soulmate to you too!

It's too bad we can't post a large picture that sizes it's self to a specific window dimension but can be blown up to full size when needed.

Image upload isn't working for me, either.

I've never been able to upload here. I usually just upload it to facebook or wherever is convenient and then embed the image.
