Correction. The suffix one has to have a / just ahead of img. I can't type it out because it will not read. Just do a quote on a message with a picture and you will see.

Uncle Vic and Davyd, thanks you so much for this post. I didn't even know it was here (lazy me, I didn't excatly search for it). Davyd, when you say you "export them out of iPhoto resized to 640 x 480 for posting", did you resize them in IPhoto before uploading to Photobucket or is it possible to do the resizing in Photobucket BEFORE posting them on Roadfood. Yeah, I found out the dead link thing the hard way before. Also, do you have to use a different email for each Photobucket account? I'll need to open a thrid one soon. I'm almost full on my 2nd account. I take a load of photos! And even when I delete the unusable ones from IPhoto, I still have a lot that I end up putting on Photobucket which make it on to RF. Thanks for all of the info and the work put in to explain it to a rube like myself!

OOPS, Sorry!! I was gonna look at one of mine, but I didn't. I should have made sure first.

Thanks for the correction.

When you reply to a topic {not the quick reply}, above the message, in the Format section, there is an "insert image" box. It will give the [img/img] thing, and you insert the link in between them.

The format section begins B I U. The "insert image" is the 11th box down. It has an arrow in the top left corner, yellow square with blue triangle {supposed to look like a picture}.

Is it true that if I sign up for Roadfood Insider that I can post directly to this site?

I've been taking more food shots of my summer travels this year, but I never get around to uploading things to photobucket.

Thanks so much for this help! I have my photos on Picturetrail and used the Forums [IMG] tag provided....we'll see if it works.

I'm a bit late responding. I must have missed this. Billyboy, I save all my original Mac photos in iPhoto. If not on a Mac most other computer based gallery programs by Microsoft, Canon, HP, Olympus, etc. have similar features. I then export a copy resized to the size I intend to post. That would be either 640 x 480 or 800 x 600. Then I upload that photo to Photobucket.com. If your account is overloaded it could be because you are posting huge files or a lot of files that never get referenced anywhere. I don't use Photobucket.com to store photos unless I intend to reference them into a message board like here. If you resize before uploading to Photobucket.com you are not storing the extra data there. However, once you upload to Photobucket.com there is an edit feature that allows you to change the size of the photo to several different standard sizes of which 640 x 480 is one.

What he said. (g)

I take my photos in a resolution that makes for many-megabytes files, but I resize them with Photoshop Elements to 800 x xxx before placing them online. The 800 x xxx size seems to make RF folks happy.

RE: Posting Pictures - A How To 2009/02/16 12:21:54 (permalink)
Here are some caveats about uploading photos.

There are a lot of free image hosting services online. Some have reliable records and some don't. Also, some will delete your photos as they see fit and they will thus also disappear from this forum. Some will do so randomly, some will do so if you do not access your account.

Tinypic.com is a free service that gives you no method in which to manage your photos. You just upload them and they go into mysterious URL land unless you make them a favorite to track or email the url to yourself to re-use again. I've found tinypic.com will delete photos after a while.

Photobucket.com is actually the same company as Tinypic.com but there you have photomanagement libraries and tools to use under an assigned account. For a free account there are limits. I think you can have a maximum of 1 gig free and there are limits to how much data traffic you can have. Since you know the maximum pixel size this forum and most forums will show is 800 pixels wide it would be foolish to upload larger photos than 800 pixels wide to Photobucket.com and let the Roadfood.com software reduce them. In doing so you will reach your maximum limit of 1 gig faster and the data traffic amount will also increase.

Data traffic is "hot linking". Every time someone accesses a message board to see a photo they accessing Photobucket.com or a like service. There is a chance you could exceed the amount of traffic allowed and your photo would be cut off in this forum. Another reason for not uploading large files. Flickr terms of service says you should not hot link yet there is a way to do so and people abuse terms of service. Photobucket.com allows it but of course with limits.

Roadfood.com insiders can upload to Roadfood.com. EGullet.com requires you to upload directly to their forum rather than use an image hosting service because they want better content control in light of what I mentioned above.

I think MiamiDon and I are doing the same thing. In Photobucket I upload 1024x768, edit & crop, then resize to 800x600 before posting to a forum. If you upload 800x600 and crop you end up with a smaller photo.

John A,

I do all my photo prep, color adjustment, exposure, cropping and resizing in Mac iPhoto before I upload to Photobucket.com. You can do the same in most all software image management programs on PCs and Macs. If you prep a photo ahead of time to 800 pixels wide it will show 800 pixels wide in Roadfood.com. Anything larger is going to get automatically reduced to 800 pixels wide by Roadfood.com when you link it. So it make little sense uploading a photo larger than 800 x 600. It would just eat up your available free storage and cause the photo to take longer to load in a message.

Hi Davydd,

After resizing in PB and posting to RF I delete the 1024's in PB.

I'm not quite understanding. If you upload a photo to Photobucket.com, link it here with img BBCode and then subsequently delete (or move) the file in Photobucket.com it will not show up in Roadfood.com. The photos are hot linked. They don't reside on Roadfood.com. Think of them as a url page referenced inside a url page. However, you can resize your photo in Photobucket.com and it will automatically show up the new size here in Roadfood.com. Experiment. Resize one of your larger photos you posted here in a message that was either 800 or 1024 wide in Photobucket.com down to 640 x 480 and then go and look at it again in your Roadfood.com message.

Davydd,

I upload 1024 to PB, edit and resize to 800 - still in PB. I then delete the original 1024 from PB and link the 800 to RF. I do this because after cropping an 800 photo you cannot post it as an 800 on RF whereby you can if you start with a 1024 and do not go under 800 when cropping. I've been doing it for a long time on several forums.

John A, I guess I am still not understanding. Cropping and resizing are two different things. Cropping is taking a portion of a photo but the resultant image is different. Resizing changes the whole image to a different resolution usually downward but is still the same. When you resize an image in Photobucket you have a choice to make a copy of the original and have both photos or you can simply replace the original uploaded photo with the newly resized photo.

Here is a photo I uploaded at 800 x 600 resolution. I uploaded it a little darker than I liked for a purpose you will see.


I cropped that photo in Photobucket.com to about 640 x 480 resolution.


Next I went back to the original photo again but resized it to 640 x 480 and also used the edit tools to enhance it.


Now that I have referenced all three photos here I have to leave them in my Photobucket library so they show up here. Normally I would have done the resize and enhancement third photo and just replaced the original. Actually, I would have done all that first on my computer in my iPhoto application.

Good morning Davydd,
 
Original shot at 1024

 
Cropped to 640, not resized
 

 
Resized to 640, not cropped
 

 
Cropped, then resized to 640
 

 
I then delete all but the last picture in PB and post it to RF.

John A,

All four of your photos are still in PB, otherwise they would not show up here. Here they are in your Photobucket album.



The first photo in your series is still 1024 wide but gets reduced here to view to 800 pixels wide. If you right click (crtrl click on the Mac) and save it to your computer it saves as a 1024 pixel wide photo same as you originally uploaded it. What I have been saying is you have been storing more photo than you need in Photobucket.com thus more memory used up.

Yes they are still there you could see the differences. I should have said on a regular post I delete all but  the last photo. After all is said and done I end up with one 800 photo per picture posted on RF. I've been doing this for almost three years with a free PB account. If I were storing all 1024's I would have run out before now.

If harley can post photobucket's clickable thumbnails, I wonder what happens with flickr?

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/81181002@N00/3130461328/" title="Bern's Steakhouse (Harry Waugh Dessert Room) - Tampa, FL by The Travelin Man, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3087/3130461328_be687d42ed_m.jpg" width="240" height="233" alt="Bern's Steakhouse (Harry Waugh Dessert Room) - Tampa, FL" /></a>

I guess the short answer is...no go.  If there are some HTML tweaks that I can use to edit flickr's code (as above) to make a clickable photo here, I would try to use them if anyone has any ideas.
