    Re: need help uploading pictures

    You need to resize your images to make the file size smaller. I use Easy Thumbnails and do all of this on my computer.

    Also - There cannot be a SPACE in the file name. I point this out because after answering questions on how to make pictures magically appear on a forum for 18+ years now, ONE of the problems I've seen other people have is there is an empty space in a picture file name.


    I don't have any problems putting pictures on a forum and I'm completely self-taught. So if I can do it - I think anyone can self-taught themselves.

    But the number one problem is people try to upload a picture off their camera or their phone without first resizing it to be a smaller file size.

    I have multiple articles on how to do this stuff and Skynet can find all of them.

    Re: need help uploading pictures

    Ok so I posted this on Mikeís Tapatalk thread awhile ago. Itís going to be an easy way for you to upload photos.

    Create an account on it and add both the Autogeek and autopia forum since you are on both.

    To add an image itís simple.

    Click on the image icon



    Then click on the largest image that Tapatalk lets you. In this case the medium size.



    Repeat the same process for an additional photo.

    Now I have an iPhone but the app should still function the same.

    The easy way to share a picture on a forum - Tapatalk App for your cell phone


    As a person that shares a LOT of pictures in the forum world using the best way, which is to upload pictures to a gallery so the pictures have an actual cyber home with an actual cyber address, I completely understand that the majority of people don't know how to do this and don't have the patience or wherewithal to figure it out.


    So with that said, here's the easy way, simply get the TapaTalk App on your phone. Links below for the type of phone you have.


    Link for TapaTalk for iPhone


    Link for TapaTalk from Google Play


    I don't have a tutorial on how to then use the App but I figure it out and if I can do it - most of you should be able to look at the interface and with a little experimenting - figure it out.

    Re: need help uploading pictures

    If you want to do this from a PC, then upload your photos to the PC.

    This is super easy to do on a PC.

    Go to paint and you are going to edit your photos to shrink their size. I would recommend you crop out the stuff you donít need before you size them down.

    On paint go to Edit > Resize.

    You should see this pop up. Click on Pixels and you are going to change to change the largest number to 800. In this case Horizontal. It will automatically resize vertical.

    I recommend renaming your image so you donít save over your original image.





    Now go to your gallery page



    Click on My Albums




    Click on Create a New Album



    Then you are going to put all your information on your album name and click Create a New Album.

    I normally just fill out Album Name



    Once you create your Albume you can now click on upload photos.


    And then just click Choose File and Click on Upload/Submit at the bottom of the page to upload your resized images.



    And depending on how many images you have it will upload each one.

    From there you can select the Linked Image and copy that. You will then go to your thread and on the post select the Linked Image text.

    I only keep the [img] path and delete the rest as itís not needed and put junk text thatís not needed.



    Then click Submit Reply and you are done.

    Now this sounds complicated but itís easy once you get going. I gave you a step by step to follow that works every time.
