First of all, Offsite Photos and links to offsite photos are not allowed on the Forestry Forum. If you want to share your photo, it MUST be placed in the Forestry Forum gallery and then placed in a post. Directing people to your gallery is also not allowed. The gallery's only purpose is to archive photos used in posts. Photos not used in posts are not to be uploaded. Deleting photos used in posts id not allowed and considered destruction of forum property

We've created some simplistic videos that should explain the processes of setting up a gallery, posting a photo, and creating a link to your gallery in your profile and posts. Please excuse my spelling in the Tutorials. :-\


1. Preparing your Gallery.

Before you can upload a photo and post it, you must create at least one album in your gallery so you have a place to put the photos. You can create one, or as many as you like. Some people like to stick all their photos in one album, some like to be neat. I happen to be not so neat.  The following video will show you how to do this first step. It explains step by step, then it shows a video example of the actual process.



2. Uploading a photo and placing it in your post.
An explanation, then example. If the descriptions go too fast, simply click on the video to stop it.




3. Adding a link to your gallery to your profile and posts.
An explanation, then example

Thank you for the help. The problem I am having is figuring out windows 8. I have not yet educated myself on how to save a picture other than having it as a tile. I will figure this thing out.

I am having some trouble figuring out windows 8 also.
If you're downloading the pictures from your camera.
Open the camera card up after you have it plugged into usb.
Click on the picture and drag it into the picture file icon on the left.
It is under the Library folder.
You can open that on the bottom left when you have your desktop screen up.

I think you need to select an album to download your picture into.
I think you all ready did the above,I think "open" where  ever you put your pictures on your computer.

Good job, Just remember, The gallery is not for uploading photos too, and saying "go look in my gallery". Only photos that are put into a post go in the gallery. You upload the photo, link it to your post, then never ever delete it or it will screw the post up.

Hey Jeff
The new photo up load system works great even for computer cripple like me.

I haven't watched the videos but your written instructions are very well done and I was able to get it figured out with just a bit of help from my son. Great work and thanks.

FYI. You may need to install a larger storage system as I have about 2000 and rising saw mill photos and about 60,000 other photos that I am sure every body would enjoy.  ;D

It's hardly new. It's over a year old not.
FYI
I'll say it again, as I've said elsewhere multiple times. The gallery is not for personal storage of photos. The only photos that should be in a member's gallery, are ones that appear in a post. The Gallery is the spot to hold the photo so it can be in the post, or so that it can be used in any subsequent posts if needed. That is the only reason for existence, other than being the means to make sure the Forum's Topic integrity remains for perpetuity.

Did you create an album yet? Did you watch the video tutorials at the beginning of this topic?  You have to create an album in order to upload, and then you need to select that album when you do upload.

Yes, I created a new album "Woodshed",   I watched the video, but it's blurry and hard to see what your clicking on.   When I click on the pic. and then on open and when it goes back to the gallery page the pic.# DSCN0074 is not in the box but something like "C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Do"   this and I can't remove it and paste the pic. # in the box.

UN hooker.I do no pasteing at all. This might confuse you more.  ;D
Plug in camera,download picture in my FF folder on my computor,go to My Gallery,click Upload File,select an album,browse in my FF folder,choose the picture I want,open it and it downloads and resizes it into what ever album I selected. I hope I did not leave a step out. This is it in a nutshell. I'm sure don't know what I am doing,but members helped me way back when.

Error
No file was uploaded!
If you have really selected a file to upload, check that the server allows file uploads...

  This is the error message I receive when I try to upload a photo.  I think I'm following all of the directions that are posted.  What server is this referring to?

Are you trying to upload a ridiculously large photo?  Many of the camera and phones now can create huge photos. Odds are you have the photo size so large that even with the generous size we allow, it is too big.    New camera? New phone?

You are right, the picture was 7.0 MB on the new camera.  I re-sized it to 4.9 MB and it finally uploaded. Thanks for the advice, now I know what to do to upload the rest of the photos.

Dean

Appears you don't have any pics in your gallery, not even in 2014.

So you need to add an album name in your gallery as a place to put your pics. Then upload them by clicking the line below that says "Click here to add Photos to post" and a new window pops up, choose which of your albums you want, and then browse your computer for your pics for uploading.
After that, when you click that line "Click here to add Photos to post", you will select "my gallery" from the menu and click on the pic you have already there, then scroll down below the enlarged pic for the "Insert image in post" button.

Let us know where this fails and we can get you more help.

I attempted to load a few pics into my gallery a moment ago. The album is entitled American chestnut. I'm trying to display pictures beginning with the hand hewed reclaimed beams, and ending with the finished product. Trouble is this album is showing several pics that do not belong to me. Is this a system error, or operator error? Please advise.

Looks like your album in your gallery only has your pics in it. There are 6 of them.

To put them in your post, then click the line below "Click here to add Photos to post" and a window will open, go to the menu list for "My Gallery" and you will go there. Click the pic you want, it will enlarge. SCROLL down a page or two below to see "Insert image in post" and answer "yes". Click the "preview" button to see that it is the one you want.
If the pic is turned wrong (happens when iPad or iPhone pics are taken vertical or upside down), then when there is an edit line below the enlarged pic to rotate it right-side-up.

And your pics of your kitchen show it off well. Good job with the decor, carpentry, and shelves.

Use the "Preview" button to see what your post looks like before hitting the "Post" button. That will help you know what is happening, or not happening.

Your pics are in your gallery. In fact, several duplicates.

Likely what you are missing, after clicking the "Click here to add Photos to post" a new window pops up, and you are not clicking the menu tab "My gallery" so end up uploading the pic again.
Click the "My gallery" menu tab and your pics will pop up. You can delete the duplicates if you have not already posted them at this time. Then click the one you want to post, it will enlarge. SCROLL down a page or two and you will see the "Insert image in post" (Image and Photo are synonymous) and answer the question "yes". That should do it for you.

Shout out if some part of this doesn't work for you.

Well done. Cute kids in the pics too...

You clearly are not using the photo uploader if you think jpg will not work.  You must be using the document uploader. Use the BIG BLUE BUTTON that says Click here to add Photos to post.

If I have an album created on my computer that is relevant to the Forum,can I move the entire album to my gallery in one step or do I still have to upload pictures one at a time.
My most recent album was created using the multiple files choice.It was faster than one at a time,but I'm still learning and trying to streamline my process if possible.
Thanks for your help,Mick

Absolutely not.  The gallery is only used for storing photos used in a post. If it is not in apost, it should not be in your gallery. Then, once it is in a post it must never ever be deleted.

The idea that it is relevant to the forum, is not a reason to upload it. Upload it, put it directly in a post. Easy as that.

I can't get windows 8 to link to the gallery when trying to post a picture. The pic is in my gallery in an album but when I try to post it windows only opens picture files on the PC. Doesn't seem to link to the file in the forum

Thanks Jeff I think it was just a windows 8 thing. I can post pictures from work but have trouble with windows.
I will try it again from home.

If you are using a work computer, it's probably an employer setting to stop uploads and downloads. Being windows 8 should have nothing to do with it. The browser you are using, perhaps.

You won't ever have to do it again, but you had the number of an album in the setup, not the number of your gallery.

I'm almost there, need to know how to save my autocad files so they will have correct extension.  I have tried .pdf and .pdfx and .dwg.  I don't find another choice in cad and not sure where to turn next.  Any idea the extensions that are appropriate.  I have a real picture I will add to post, or try.

Scott,

2 ways to do this.  One works if you are using Autodesk Autocad (or at least it used to).  At the command prompt below the model or paper space window type in JPGOUT (that should start a dialog window to let you save your drawing as a raster file).

Or, if you are using some other version of cad without the full Autodesk command set, here is how I have done it in the past.  I hit Shift-PrtScrn while I have Cad open as a full screen with my drawing displayed and then I open an app like MSPaint and hit "paste".  It brings over the Cad screenshot into MSPaint and then lets you save it as a Jpg, bmp, etc.

Like this ...



I "cropped" out the unnecessary stuff so only the drawing was saved.

I just wanted to add that with the new cameras and phones that
have a huge image size it take a lot of space to store. The picture
does not need to be so large to look good unless your zooming in
on it. Reducing the size will help by saving space. This sample
picture from my camera is only 39.1 kb.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad to take pictures that you plan to post on forestry forum, you must hold the device so that the volume buttons are on the bottom edge of said device while taking the picture. If you do not hold the your iPhone or iPad correctly and post directly from iPhone or iPad, your pictures will be oriented wrong on forestry forum and not even Jeff can fix it.

If the orientation of a photo taken with one of Apple's iDevices is corrected, it will then be wrong when viewed on an iPhone or iPad. So please, if you are like me and choose to use iPhones and iPads, please hold device so volume buttons are down when taking pictures. And please don't even think of holding iPhone in portrait orientation when taking pictures, it will never work.

Question about photo sizes.  I took a screen shot on my Mac.  The original size is 1390 x 768 and is 311 kb large.  It's very easy to read on my 22" monitor.

After I uploaded it, it became 639 x 367, and the compression is so bad, it's now 42 kb, it's hard to read the text. 



When I hover over the image, it appears clickable, but clicking on it does not do anything.  What would be ideal would be that if I clicked on it, I was taken the full size image I uploaded.  On a small screen (than my 22" monitor), I don't know how people could really even see it. 

I can understand the desire (or need) to compress images on upload, but in this case, it's doing more harm to a "harmless" photo than benefiting anyone.   

Is the idea that keeping a photo under 640 x 480 (a 1990's concept) is better for the common good?   I feel like I'm in photo jail.   There have been other images on this site I would have liked to see more clearly, but it's impossible due to the compression and scaling.

Even though the snide comments are unappreciated, I'll try to answer your problem.  Cut the image in two. Make two images and your text will be clear. And as for the comments, since you obviously have no understanding why we do things the way we do, I'll let them pass. This time.

I came to this thread to learn why you do the things you do, and since it wasn't stated, I asked my questions. 

Apologies for being snide.  It wasn't against any person, but you took offense personally, and apparently put me on notice.   

Thank you for offering the workaround.

Still don't know why you do the things you do.  It is a funds issue?  Is more server space needed?  Bandwidth?

It's been over 3 years since smartphones overtook desktop computers for accessing the Web. What's the biggest screen you can stick in your pocket?

I find other sites annoying sometimes when waiting and waiting and waiting for a bunch of photos of 14MB or more each to load on a page. Half the time they're lousy photos with more background than subject matter, any way.

Crop, scale, compress -- you end up with a photo that conveys what you intend and does so efficiently. Time is precious.

Find something to do that interests you.
