I am often asked, as a Mac user and Safari browser, about how to upload images to the various fora I subscribe to.

There is only limited support within the YMR coding for Safari but you can still upload an image using the instructions in the first post.

You can also host and edit your images at a third party site as I do. Most offer a free entry-level of service but charge a modest fee once you have more than a certain amount of data hosted and / or your images attract a level of attention with exceeds a preset amount of bandwidth at the host site.

What you cannot do is upload images directly to YMR from iPhoto. They must come out of that application first. At the very least you must copy (click-drag) them to the desktop for an upload. You can however upload directly from iPhoto to third-party hosts.

For hobby use many of us can probably get away with a free account at the likes of SmugMug, Photobucket or Flickr. Take a look at all of those since they all differ in detail, functionality, ease of use and other aspects. Have regard to the protection of your images as well since there is a potential for anyone to view one and "right-click" to save it to their own computer. That is theft and while it doesn't seem to bother many people it matters to others and it's still wrong. All those sites have selectable options to prevent this happening.

To post a hosted image first copy the link from the host site. Usually this will be in the form of a button which blinks from "Copy" to "Copied" or similar to confirm you have the URL copied onto your "clipboard".

In the YMR "Post Reply" window you will see some icons at the top. When you wish to insert the image click on the one resembling two blue-green balls with a red one on top. (Similar icons appear on other board but they can look different - I've seen mountains, a camera and other outlines used). Click this icon once and you should see a pair of "image tags" appear in your text looking like this [img][ /img]

Note there is no space between the [ and / characters but I have to insert one for you to see the coded tags.

Place the cursor between the adjacent brackets][ and paste the URL link. Adjust line spacing if necessary as sometimes I find the tags are well below the next line of text.

When ready click Preview at the bottom of the reply window to see how your post will appear. It should show your text and image(s) without any code visible.

When happy click "Send" so we can all read it and enjoy your pictures.

It is also possible to type out the image tags on the keyboard longhand noting that you must use the square [][] brackets.

I think Toto uses an IPad but he can't post photos from it ? But I don't know if he uses Safari...why not try uploading from it and see if it works ?


Cheers

Slightly off topic ,but can anyone help please .  My pc screen images have shifted 1/2 inch or so upwards ,meaning i have lost the top bar and cannot therefore navigate so easily between pages.   I recently allowed changes on an update to Mozilla the problem has occurred since then.
I have tried to restore to an earlier point ,but the restoration is blocked by an antivirus program.   I am instructed to temporarily turn that off.    Can anyone please tell me how to do that . Then i will try again .:sad:

Hi Reg,the option to turn off the anti virus program will be in the settings of the program itself.you may even find a setting that allows certain programs access through the anti virus.Good luck.

I remember this problem from some time ago, but I can't remember what is causing it, Reg.

I have a vague recollection that it was a virus.  Which virus protection are you running?

Also, do you have another computer to compare it with?  That will eliminate your wifi.

AVG tell me that my account expires on 7th june . i may let that go and try to download Malware again before renewing AVG .

I have an auto button on the monitor which allows the brightness to adjust a little, i have tried that ,but it is only partially improved the lossm of the top bar.:shock:

I have Avast and Malwarebytes, Reg.

Both are supposed to be good. 

I paid for the Avast, as it gives me access to their help desk in Ireland.

It does three computers for A$66.00
