Photobucket and Webshots:


Once you have your account set up, you can upload to your main album, or to any other album of your choosing.

To post images from Photobucket here at Dyxum, follow these steps:

1. Go to your image in Photobucket, and hover the mouse over it.

2. A window will appear which will contain links for e-mail, direct link, html, etc.

3. Select the link for "direct link", right click, and copy to your clipboard.

4. When ready to post the image at Dyxum, follow the instructions at the beginning of this thread, and just paste the link when prompted.

I also use Webshots from time to time, and the process is very similar, except that you need to open the photo by double clicking on it, and then click on "link to it" over on the right part of the screen. This will open the box containing the link which you then can copy and paste as outlined above.

Hope that helps.

Any time.

God knows I've gotten more than enough help from others here.

Photobucket gives you a choice of size for upload with the default being 800x600, and the max being 1 meg. This is if you are using the "free" service. If you go "pro", ($25 / year) then you can go all the way up to 2 meg, and they will allow you unlimited storage as well.

Webshots lets you load up to 2400 x 2400, but they do limit the number of images you can load per month (1,000 for free members, 5,000 for paid members). Also, if you are using a free membership, they will limit you to around 10,000 shots, and won't let you see stats on more than 3 albums, whereas the paid membership ($20 / year) lets you see everything and removes storage limits. The one neat thing about Webshots is that you can make your collection be your desktop, and also your screen saver, so all you guys that take those awesome shots take note.

A warning about using the dynamic link between Lightroom 3 and Flickr can be found here. There might be some snags, so If you have the problem of suddenly posted images to be no longer visible this might be the reason.

How to deal with the new Flickr:
1. Actions --> View all sizes

2. Select the size you want
3. Copy the link:
a. In Firefox/Opera: Right click on the image and select "Copy Image Location/Address"

b. In IE: Right click on the image and select "Properties", then in the Properties window, select the text in the "Address (URL)" field, right click and "Copy".

Argote, one of our members, made a handy flicker photo sharing utility. It should save a lot of trouble.

Yes, indeed. I like and use Argote's much improved Flickr poster but thanks Serdar for the tip on how to do it the old fashioned way.

The utility is very nice and helpful indeed. However, if the picture is marked private, you will have to do it the old fashioned way.

Someone may have beat me to it, but just in case...

If you want to post from smugmug but not have your site name in the URL, you can replace your name with www.

Ex:
http://kingofthebeasts.smugmug.com/photos/59093055_XRmk3-S.jpg
http://www.smugmug.com/photos/59093055_XRmk3-S.jpg

Both will give the same photo but the second will not allow people to get your site name from the URL. I do that all the time on mine.

To all:

Thank you for all your excellent efforts to try to tell someone like me how to post pictures on Dyxum.

Could someone, please, rewrite the essential materials in this thread into one, rigorously-ordered, practical, unified and clearly explained how-to-do-it handbook which the reasonably intelligent photographer can grasp?

Tested and working, practical examples of procedures are essential. Important terms and concepts must be clearly and well defined. Pages which have examples from Flickr and other utilities must be large enough to read and to comprehend.   

I do not wish to annoy anyone with all these requests. I do consider myself to be at least semi-intelligent. But I cannot understand much of what I read in this thread.

I have a background in real-time, interactive programming in graphics, automated machine control, embedded micro logic development, biological signal analysis, C++, assembler, machine code and Pascal since my teens (I am now 43). My MS is in Physics. My math education includes PDQ and relativistic mechanics. My PhD is in the physiology of the CNS. I have a patent in biomedical instrumentation. So, someone PLEASE help me to understand how to post images and links on Dyxum!!

Thank you, most kindly, for your patient attention to my plight.

Jocelynne,

The most essential/basic instructions for posting a picture are in the first post on page 1.

Anything after that all depends on the picture host site you have chosen for shortcuts or smarter methods to achieve the same objective. So writing one comprehensive all-encompassing posting instruction is not possible. Maybe better to let us know which picture hosing site you have chosen and what practical problems you have with it, and I'm sure that then you'll get many helpful responses here.

@cata352004, it's all a matter of keeping cost for bandwidth and server capacity down so you can keep enjoying Dyxum for free. I think most of our members will understand and appreciate that.

Given the fact that posting images is extremely easy (most photo sites give you ready BB code that you only need to copy/paste, so posting a link or a picture is exactly the same amount of work) and thousands of our members have no problem with it don't expect us to change anything
