Posting Pictures from Computer to JACURUTU

Postby Jodorowsky's Acolyte » 29 Feb 2012 01:20

I pray for the technical wisdom of the Reverend Fathers of this sietch. I really want to post computer scans of my fan art into the Jacurutu threads, but it doesn't seem to accept image attachments. I tried dragging my picture to the writing block, then all I get is an online page with my art on it, by I can't post it. Is there any particular way to attach post pictures from your computer into this forum site?

The best way to handle this is by uploading the images to one of the many free image hosting sites. ( I use www.photobucket.com ) After uploading the image receives a unique url which you can use to link your image to this site. Place the url between [img*][/img*] tags (without the *) and the image is shown in your post.

Example:

[IMG*]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v75/NicolaiS/alicia-witt-956.jpg[/IMG*] ... the url between tags but with the * in them.

Without the *:

Code: Select all

Code tags FTW :)


Hijacking the thread a bit - JA: you might want to re-host your avatar onto photobucket. It never displays for me and makes my phone panic a little bit.

Clicking "View Image" makes Firefox say:

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to media.sirenvisual.com.au, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Thanks for the help, Serkanner. Although I am a little uncomfortable posting my pictures on photobucket, I hopefully will get the nerve to do so.

@DuneFishUK: Yeah. Sorry about that, DuneFishUK. I really don't know how that happened. The picture refusing to show up is beyond my control, and it was one of the few thumnails I could find that was the right size. It was really difficult trying to find the picutre I wanted for my avatar that fit the size specifications the forum required. Is it possible for me to link to you some pictures I want for my avatar, and you can find some way to narrow down their size.

Your avatar can be smaller, the specified size is a maximum.

Might I recommend lotek's favourite toy http://pixlr.com/editor/ to crop you favourite image like you want it.

Open the image from URL or off your computer.
The Crop tool is top left in in the "Tools" box on the left - the black square looking icon.
Go to the options bar at the top of the screen and select Constraint: Output Size
Type in Width: 180, Height: 180
Click/Drag the square over your image, adjust as necessary.
Hit enter
Save as, then you can upload to photobucket.

:)

If you're struggling, post it here and I (or another of the Photoshop faithful) will sort it.

DuneFishUK: I need your help.

I've tried to do what you've suggested, as well as tried out that pixel site recommended to me, and I'm still having trouble. This is the picture I want for my profile. There were countless others, some better, but I think this is the image best conveys what my user name in an abstract/existential way. You think you can help me out, my good man?

Well, there's this one if you want the whole thing:

If you wanted it cropped so that more detail is visible then I'd go with this one:
