Default Answered: Picture help?

I've been trying to upload some of my rooms in the house thread, but can't seem to figure out how to do it. I get as far as taking the screenshot, editing it, saving it as a jpeg file and trying to upload it via the manage attachments. BUT I can't seem to get it to do it right, it'll only save it as an attached thumbnail. Whether I use a site like Tinypic or upload it straight from my computer it never comes up as a big picture like you see in all the other threads. What on earth am I doing wrong?

Ps. I've checked out all the links WI has on how to upload stuff and none of it works for me.

Try this:
1) Click on the thumbnail. It will open into a large picture.

2) right-click on the large picture and click "copy"

3) click on the back button to return to your post.

4) Open the post by clicking "modify"

5) Put the cursor where you want the picture, right-click, and "paste"

If that does not work, it could be that your picture is too large (there is a maximum width of 600 pixels) Try to reduce your picture's pixels using the resizer in paint or in another program... (keeping the height to with ratio intact)

What I do is make an album with all of my house pictures(make sure it is private if you want it exclusively on your house thread). Then open another tab to your house thread. Copy the BB code ( it might be the image URL I don't remember ) into your house thread.

That is what I do I don't use Tinypic

Default Re: Picture help?

It is best if you save the picture as a Gif, png or Jpeg (jpg) file. If you save it as a bitmap it takes up way too much space,
Since you have the rudiments of the saving the picture and knowing how to locate it I can tell you how to get the picture uploaded from Tinypic
First go here > TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting
Browse your files to find the picture you want to use, click on the picture and then click upload
(You will see a 'Capcha' image and you have to do that correctly first. It is usually two words or number combinations)
Click the image to open in full size.
Once your picture uploads copy the last link and paste it into your picture box located above the text box.
Click the image to open in full size.

Make sure that if you are putting in more than one picture that you leave a space or two between them so that you don't stretch out the page.

Thanks everyone! I'll try them now, hopefully I'll get one to work. :p I'm not technically savvy so we'll see.

I appreciate the help!
