Needed: Technique for Adding Photos
Dear members:
I am finally ready to begin a thread for my series of three model airports/1:500 scale. In doing so, I hope to inject some new life into the forum--I've noticed scant new material and I would like to do my part to keep our forum LIFELINE alive.

Unfortunately, I am unsure of how to place the photographs into the thread.
I have searched Wings900 and have found that over time there have been differing ways to do so.
Could members share their ways of adding photos to their threads with explicit instructions? I had trouble with this a few years go, as all of the photos that I put eventually disappeared. Also, I noticed many of the older threads with "Photobucket" pictures had the Photobucket watermark stamped across the image, which I would prefer to avoid.

Ciao Pete.
This is make since many years:
1) make the pic
2) load it on the PC
3) work it with Photoshop (1000 x 700)
4) load it in Photobucket
5) copy the URL from the right side of the pic (Photobucket)
6) join Wings900
7) copy the URL in my threads.

Alessandro, thank-you for the very quick response:cool:. By the way, are there any other options besides the Photobucket route?

Re: Needed: Technique for Adding Photos
Photobucket is not an option for me anymore. I can still see Photobucket uploaded pics because I use the "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" add on my Google Chrome browser.

I host my pictures on Flickr. However, free accounts are now limited: only 1000 uploads are allowed :cry:

Anyway, this is what I do:

1) upload the pic on Flickr
2) after upload, open the pic on Flickr
3) click on the "Share Photo" arrow icon on Flickr
4) Copy the "BBCode" URL, always choosing a size no bigger than 1024px.
5) Paste the URL on the W900 "new post" board
6) Erase all the URL bits and bots, except the [img][/img] part
7) Post it!

Flickr is the way to go Pete, for sure!

Re: Needed: Technique for Adding Photos
Are they for free ? Understood that photbucket costs you and and they store your photos actually and you give them the ownership of the photos since you are on their DB. is that correct ?

Pete, I definitely recommend Flickr... very easy to upload from any device as well as upload the picture to w900. Can’t wait to see some photos!

Pete, about Photobucket i pay an annual fee for both storage and the possibility to share all the pics i want in all the websites i want.
It isn't too expensive but in 2020 nobody gives you something important free of charge.
