    help

    Hi.
    I am attempting to download some images from photobucket. I can't seem to figure it out. I went through the search engine and got info on how to post images from "GJ Oct 26 2006" and am following those directions with no success. Is there more current instructions for the new guy who has never done this before?
    Any help would be appreciated, thanx.

    Re: help

    Do you mean you are trying to upload images, or post them to WUS? If you are just looking to download images, meaning save them to your computer FROM photobucket, just right-click and select "Save Picture As" or "Save Image As".

    For uploading and posting images, have you read this thread?

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=247933

    1) Goto an image-hosting site. Photobucket, imageshack, etc.
    2) You will have to create a free account and activate it - activation is simply getting a confirmation email and clicking the link provided in the email.
    3) You will look for the area to UPLOAD your pic(s)
    4) Choose the pix on your computer - to make things easier, create a folder on your desktop and put the ones you want there.
    5) Most will have an option to resize the graphics to X size. I upload for a 15" display normally to allow the most people access to them.
    6) Load the image on the hosting site that shows your watch.
    7) Control-click the image in your web-browser. [meaning right-click]
    8) Select "copy link" or "copy image address"
    9) I make a separate window or tab with my post ready to go. Click on the little icon - as seen above - with the mountain/sun.
    10) It will put in the needed code in your post.
    11) Now paste the copied URL (address) of the image you copied previously.
    12) Do this for every image you want to host.


    If those are the steps you are trying to follow, let us know where you're having trouble and we can put you back on track

    Cool

    Once you understand the process, it's very easy. Essentially, it's just three steps:

    1 - upload pics to Photobucket or other hosting service
    2 - get the URL of the picture, for example http://www.freeimagehosting.com/imagename.jpg
    3 - write your WUS post and click the Insert Image button and provide the URL, or put the URL inside image tags like this:

    Hi, here's my new watch!
    [img**]http://www.freeimagehosting.com/imagename.jpg[/img**]

    (except without the ** on each side)

    Not to confuse you any further, but if you are looking for a good free program to resize pictures, I have used this for years and really like it.
