How to post a picture

Lots of people have asked for information on how to post photos, so here is a step-by-step guide. It might not be a good one, but it's the best I can do. And keep in mind that it sounds more difficult than it is.

First, you must have a host, and your own computer cannot be a host unless you leave it on all the time and you don't mind anyone else accessing it. You probably already have a host anyway in your ISP (Internet Service Provider). ISP's usually offer customers 5-10 MB of storage space, and all you need it an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program to get your pictures from your computer to the server.

If your ISP doesn't provide that, or if you don't want to use it for whatever reason, then you need to subscribe to a service that does that for you. Two popular ones are www.hunt101.com and www.photobucket.com. I am not endorsing either of these. If you want to know the benefits and drawbacks of each one, ask around.

Those are active links, so choose one and click on it. These instructions might be more accurate for PhotoBucket.com, but Hunt101.com is pretty much the same. You will have to open an account. There might be a fee. If there is, it's probably reasonable. After you sign up you will have to log in with your username and password each time you want to use it. You will be shown a page that will allow you to upload your pictures. A browse button will let you search your own computer files for the pictures you want to upload.

When you find a picture you want to upload, click on it and then click "OK". Then click on "submit". What you've just done is make a copy of your picture and put it on their server in your account. You should be able to see your photo below the upload box, along with 3 buttons (move, edit and delete). You will also see 3 rectangular boxes named "url", "tag", and "img".

Your image now has a URL, which is the picture's address on the world wide web. To post a picture on HuntingPA.com, go to the posting page and click on the "Image" link under UBB Code. You will get a box. Copy and paste the picture's address into the box. Make sure you have the entire address, including "http://". When you click "OK" the address will go into the place where you type the words you are posting. It will look something like this: {image}http://www.hostsite.com/huntingphotos/bigbuck.jpg{/image}. Those image tags at the beginning and end are what tells my computer to go to your host site and display your photo. (They're supposed to have square brackets "[image]" but I had to change them to "{image}" so you wouldn't see one of these: , which tells you something is wrong and indicates an unusable or "broken" link.

Finish your post just like any other message, and voila, you've posted a picture for me and everyone else to see.

If anyone reads this and thinks it can be made clearer, PM me and I'll try to make improvements. Good luck.

This is a test using Photobucket. Hunt101 would not work. Thanks for your help.
