    How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    I see alot of threads where people have no idea at all, of how to upload or post pictures on the NZhondas.com Forums. So its a quiet day at work
    and thought i would help out

    There are numerous ways it can be done, however i will outline a couple.

    1 - Uploading a picture into your Album section of your NZH profile

    2 - Uploading a picture using an External Imagehost

    3 -
    Attaching a picture straight from your computer

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #1 - Once logged into your NZH account, on the top right hand corner you will see a "My Profile" Link. Click this!


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #2 - Bottom left of the screen, find the "Albums" box and click on "More"



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #3 -
    Right hand side of screen you want to click on "Create New Album"

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #4 -
    Here you want to give your album a name & if need be give a description & ALSO decide either Private or Public viewing of that album. If it is private, anyone who is not your friend on NZH or a moderator can not see it. (Dont make a album private if your linking to a FS: thread! Duh)



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #5 -
    Once your album is created you then want to click on "Upload pictures"



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #6 -
    The File Upload Manager will appear. You want to click "Add Files", then "Browse..." to locate your picture on your computer. Then "Upload". MAKE SURE THE PICTURE YOU WANT TO UPLOAD IS NOT TO BIG IN DIMENSIONS OR SIZE OR IT MAY NOT WORK



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #7 -
    Once thats done, you need to select the uploaded picture in the bottom section of the pop up window and hit done to close the pop up window. Your picture is now uploaded to your album. You need to hit save changes in the bottom left of the screen below



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Final Step -
    Click on your photo, and down the bottom left there will be a couple link tags. Copy the BB Code and PASTE into your thread. DONE!!


    Someone else can do the External Image provider help haha.


    If you have trouble following these instructions you DONOT belong on NZHondas. There are other forums for you!

    Re: How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    Uploading a picture using an External Image Host

    First find an external Imagehost of your choice, be mindful some require you to signup first to be able to do much. A list can be found here

    We will be using iforce.co.nz which is by far the easiest at the moment

    Step #1 -
    Go to www.iforce.co.nz



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #2 -
    Select "Browse" to find your picture/s on your computer





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #3 - Click on "Upload"



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #4 -
    Congratulations you just uploaded a picture.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Final Step - Now copy the direct link URL into your thread surrounded by [IMG] [/IMG] Tags, or click the wee picture in your reply box on the forums and copy it in there.

    Re: How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    Attaching a picture straight from your computer

    Step #1 - - Start your new thread or reply to a thread using the "Reply to Thread" button or "Quote" button then, "Go Advanced" to access all the options.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #2 - At the bottom of the page under the box where you would type your reply, is a box called "Additional Options". In there is the "Manage Attachments" button, click that.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #3 - Up pops a new window called "Manage Attachments". At the top on the right hand side is the "Add Files" button, click that.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #4 - In the new box that appears click the "Browse" button



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #5 -
    The "File Upload" box will pop up. From here you can find the file you wish to upload from your computer, select it, then click "Open"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #6 -
    You will be take back to the previous view, but the location of your image now shows in the box. If you wish to upload more images click the "+" button then repeat steps 4 and 5. If you have finished click "upload"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #7 -
    It may take a few moments to upload your file/s. Then thumbnails of your uploaded files will appear down the bottom of the "Manage Attachments" box. Ensure all the images you want to add to your post have a little blue tick in the bottom right corner of them. Then click the "Insert Inline" button on the bottom right corner of the window.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step #8 -
    Your image/s will now appear in the body of your post inside square brackets like this. [ATTACH=CONFIG]xxxxx[/ATTACH]
    Do not modify the brackets in any way as you may loose your image from your post. You can move it to where you like in your post. Click "Submit New Thread" or "Submit Reply"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Final Step -
    Your post will now show with your attachment in it like this. You are now done!!

    Just as a note:

    Do not use IMGUR or TINYPIC to host/post photos.

    It doesn't work...

    Re: How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    If you want to attach an image from another site i.e. Facebook

    with facebook you have to have the image all the way open so you can see the comments on the side/bottom. not off your wall

    Right click on the picture
    In Firefox, select "Copy Image Location" not link location
    In internet Explorer, select "Properties", then Copy the "Address ( URL )"

    This ensure you have the direct link to the image, including the file extension which you need to have when putting the image tags around it.

    Now paste the direct link URL into your thread surrounded by [IMG] [/IMG] Tags, or click the wee picture in your reply box on the forums and paste it in there.

    Re: How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    Well i have tried two different ways to download photos as described in this post time and time again, with no luck, when i open files they do not appear in the box like they are meant to, is it anything to do with my membership level or is there something else not right?

    how big are they? if you resize them to a reasonable size, ie 1200x800 and less than 500kb in size you shouldnt have any issues

    Sorry what do you mean by other hosts. I am trying to load these files from my desktop and the images are JPEG files all compressed and 1200 by 800 as communicated above.

    Re: How to Upload/Post Pictures on NZHondas.com

    There is know issues/limitation with uploading photos to your albums from your phone. this is generally down to the photos on your phone being too big. they need to be resized first.

    ie a standar 8mp photo is about 3-5mb which is too big to upload to the forum. it should be less than 1mb
