Posting Photos on this forum

There are 2 options for uploading your photos to the Clivia Forum web site.

Photo posting using Photobucket:
You can upload your photos to an online image hosting site such as Photobucket ( See the following site for more photo hosting options.

To link to a picture from Photobucket:

1) Have the picture in digital format. If it a photograph on photographic paper you will need to use a scanner to get it onto a computer. If it is a digital camera then just load the file onto your computer.

2) Re-size the picture to sensible proportions (Try to have it not larger than 800 x 600). Please try to keep photos on the smaller side, both for ease of viewing and quicker download time for those on dial-up connections.

3) Save the picture as a .jpg or .gif

4) In your posting, make an "IMG" link directly to the image to display as an actual part of your posting by typing like this:


**********(make sure there are no *, I had to do that so it wouldn't think these were actual links.)

To view how your message and photos will look before submitting your message, you can choose the preview button to be sure everything looks the way you had hoped.

The other method would be to link it from your own website, using the visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Good luck, and let us know if you need further assistance!

Thank you Gideon.

You are a real help to the older members amongst who I count myself even though I am not old, I am like a baby when it comes to computer knowledge.

Thank you Gideon. I pestered poor Martin who helped me in a sterling manner some weeks ago on the process of putting a photo on.

Kind regards Geraldine and Ronald.
