how to upload a jpeg file

5 posts in this topic

Hi!

First off, I hope I posted this thread in the right place! My question is related to the tdn forums... 

I want to post 3 photos that are in jpeg format to one of the threads (it's my submission for the space faerie code giveaway), but I can't figure out how.

There seem to be 2 options for posting an image: 

a) an icon that says My Media. I would use this but I don't know how to save something into My Media in the first place. 

b ) an image icon that has you paste a url. I don't have Facebook or somewhere to upload these to provide a url.

Does anyone have any advice on how to go about this?

PS If it matters I am using a MacBook.

You'll need to upload it it to an image hosting site. If you have tumblr or something like that you can do an image post and copy the url from that. I'm pretty sure if you go to tinypic.com and upload your images you don't have to have an account, but then I don't think you can delete them either. So you'll probably have to create an account if you wish to delete them.

 

If you absolutely do not wish to create an account but want control over your images, for deletion purposes and whatnot. You may email them to me and I"ll upload them to my photobucket account and can give you the urls. Just send me a PM and I'll give you my email. :)

Here is an easy to use image hosting site, no need to sign up. If the pics are already in/on your computer, just click the "Choose images" tab and find them in your folders. Then after it uploads, choose the link you want, probably one of the "forum" links, full size or thumb. (Full size shown here, with their promo link dropped)

OK this has been beyond helpful! I tried to create a puush account, but it went all glitchy, but I think the post image thing is going to work :) If not, I will be PMing you, Mouseykins :)

 

Edit: SUCCESS!!! I used a big picture so I ended up just uploading one not 3, but my project can now be seen on the Space Faerie giveaway thread...

If you do want to use all 3, and they are large, just use the links that say "thumbnail for forums". Then viewers click the thumb for full size viewing. Example:
