Posting pictures and image files is quite a simple process if you follow a few simple rules...

STORING PICTURES

Pictures need to be stored on web server, such as www.photobucket.com or www.webshots.com (there are others but these are ones we use and are most familiar with).

Once on the website you will need to register to create an account, once that is done you can start uploading pictures.

UPLOADING

When you login to your account you should go to the upload area. To add pictures follow the simple instructions.

POSTING

You will now see your picture has been uploaded to your album and to post you select one of the following four options:

EMAIL & IM
DIRECT LINK
HTML TAG
IMG CODE

Select the IMAGE CODE option then simply highlight this address and “EDIT & COPY”. Open up www.thelandroverclub.co.uk select the forum subject where you want the picture to go, create a new topic or reply to an existing one and “PASTE” your link into the text box. Once your link appears you can add general comment text above or below, preview your listing and check the link works before submitting the post.

RE-SIZING

If you find the image appears too large you can re-size them down to a more manageable size. To do this return to “your album” on the image hosting site and where the picture appears you will see the “RE-SIZE” options (the following instructions are for photobucket):

AVATAR (This is one to select if you want a picture to appear with your username in all of your posts)
THUMBNAIL
WEBSITE/EMAIL (This is the one to use for the post, MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE SIZE FOR THIS FORUM IS ABOUT 480 x 380 Once selected your posting picture should automatically re-size. If not just re-copy and paste again).

NOTE

This will work for most image files inc jpg, gif, tif and pdf formats.


As you may be aware, we have changed our web host (the place where the site actually resides) as a result of problems in the past.

It is now permissible for forum members to include photographs in their posts. Please follow the instructions in this forum section on how to do this. We need to restrict the size of the photos so that it doesn't upset the web layout. Also, we would request that people don't post large quantities of photos as it affects web traffic rates.

The size you should be aiming for is thus:



Thanks,
