A Preferred Method of Uploading/Posting Screen Shots

The method used by most to upload screen shots and pictures is saving it in .jpeg/jpg/jpe format and by using the Snipping Tool and the Attachments (paperclip) Name:  paperclip.JPG

If you do not know about the Snipping Tool, please read this Tutorial on it.

How to use the Snipping Tool in Vista - Vista Forums

To start, use the Snipping Tool or whatever screenshot program you prefer and save it as a .jpeg/jpg/jpe.

When you are ready to include a screen shot in your thread/post, click on the paperclip in the reply box, where it will go to the Manage Attachments page.

From there, click on the browse button to open up the File Upload window.
Insert your image and click on The Upload button to the right.

You can also upload the file from a URL.

Now, close the Attachment window at the top right.

You can now reclick on your paperclip..

Pick the file to insert into your post.
It will look like this:

[ATTACH]0000[/ATTACH]

You can then Preview your post to see what it will look like.


This is not the only way to do this but it is one method used by many that keeps the threads/posts looking clean instead of having huge screenshots.

Great idea Aaron, but it's a shame most people will still end up overlooking this thread and continue to insert large pics, if only there was some way to make all users aware of it.

I know Mark. At least it has been stickified, and General Discussion is where a lot of screen shots are posted, such in Show us your Rig, etc.. Hopefully it will help.

Thanks for making it a sticky.

I find it quicker just to upload straight to the forum and the pictures load allot faster as well.

Yeah, why use a third party way when it's already built in here...

Sorry but with this i find it very confusing and a pain, i am used to using ip.board and smf and other boards that auto resize images from other sources, to solve this whole re-size issue just install the mod that does just that with normal img bb code? (someone mentioned this already here its a simple mod from the vB mod site)..

The main reason i find this a pian is i normally upload all my screens to tinypic and post on many sites, my net connection is slow.

But its not simple and convenient for everyone, i for one miss this site out when doing my rounds and posting the same topics on various sites as i would have to reformat my post JUST for this site AND upload the image/s for a second time.

Why on earth the resize feature on external images is not built into this forum script is beyond me...
