How to post pictures

As seen in the FAQ section:

How do I post Images?

Everyone has problems with this when first joining a forum so sont worry. Its pretty easy to post images, so read on...

The easiest way to post an image is to have it "hosted" on a seperate website like https://imgbb.com, Flickr.com or any other you may know of which specialises in "hosting" files and images, don't bother with Photobucket or associated sites.

These hosting websites are specifically for keeping your images and other files so you can link to them online.

Rover800.info cannot "host" images on thier own server - it would take up too much space and if the site had a server crash, all images could potentially be lost even if the system were to recover.

Once you've found a hosting site, you can upload the pictures from your computer to your online album and then link to your picture from there.

Try to set a default size when you upload for example 640 x 480 pixels will keep it sensible when displaying on the forum.

Once uploaded, each picture will have number of automatically generated links displayed by it, this is to help you display your picture on a another website or forum. You'll want the "IMG code" which looks like this:

Imagehttp://host-site.com/my-picture.jpg[/img]

Copy that link, paste it into your new post as it is, and it will display the photo automatically. Make sure there are NO spaces between the link and IMG codes otherwise your image may display at all.

By using an image hosting service such as imgbb.com/Flickr or similar you are protected against data loss if there are any problems with this website.

It is IMPORTANT that you have the tags on your picture link for the picture to show up. If you dont, your picture will NOT show up and only a written link to the picture will show.

It is also important that you use the "PREVIEW" button instead of posting a post and asking "does it work?" you can check it works by pressing the preview button. If you are unsure or stuck, by all means post your message and either mods or admins will tidy up any links.

Linking From other sites

If you want to link a picture from another site, say ebay or another forum, follow these steps:

1. Find your desired picture.
2. Hover your mouse over desired picture, then click the right-hand button on your mouse
3. Select "Properties" from the drop down list
4. A new window will pop up, select and copy the Address (URL)
5. Paste the URL into your post, select URL again and click on the "IMG" tag located just above the new post area.

Once done this is how your link should look with the IMG tags:

Imagehttp://i205.photobucket.com/albums/user_image.jpg[/img]

Please note - directly linking a picture from your computer hard drive will NOT work, your picture will need to be online on a hosting site before you can link and display it in a forum/website.

Should you have any problems please PM any of the Mods or Admins here and we will endevour to help as much as we can.

Thanks,

The Management
