Guide to using images on UKCS

Postby bort on Sat Apr 18, 2009 12:40 pm

Welcome to this guide to using images on our forums. In it I will show you how to use the UKCS Uploader and how to put a signature on your profile.

First off, stick the kettle on and make yourself a nice cup of tea. No biscuits. The crumbs will stick in your keyboard and void the warranty.

All set? Let's go!


Using the UKCS Uploader

As you may have noticed at the top of the page is the word Uploader. It's a link. You can click it. It's the future.

Image



Once clicked, you will be brought to the Uploader home page, Ta-da!

Image



The first thing you need to do is to create some folders for your images. Click the "Create / order my albums" button

Image



On this screen you can create a number of albums for what ever reason you want. As you can see I have a few myself. It's a good way to catergorise your pictures and files so that you can find them easily in the future. Also you can set permissions on each album as to who is allowed to see them.

Image



Let's create a new folder. Click the "New" button in the bottom right corner.

Image



New Album is a pretty cool name but a bit boring. Let's call it something else. Delete the title in the box and write your own one (1.) then click Apply Modifications (2.)

Image



You will then see this. I've called mine Holiday Snaps. Remember, you're under no obligation to call yours Holiday Snaps. Democracy! Click OK.

Image



If I have to tell you what to do with this next pic, you shouldn't be allowed near a computer...

Image


Click Continue





You will then be back at the home screen.

Image



The next bit is not really necessary, so if you just want to upload a picture, skip to the next part - entitled "Uploading a Picture".

Modifying Your Albums

Click the Modify Albums button.

Image



Choose your newly created Album on the drop down menu to the right.

Image



Fill in the boxes and select whether you want to make the album public or private. I don't know who the CPG Registered Users Group is but I don't trust them. They sound sinister and should be avoided at all costs.

Image



Note: If you set your album to Me Only and make it private, people browsing the uploader wont see it but you will still be able to post the images on the forums.

Click Update Album at the bottom and you're done.


Uploading a Picture

Click the @ symbol. This will bring up a number of options. Click Upload File

Image



Click Browse.

Image



Find the file you want on your computer. You can upload 5 files at one time. When you are done click continue.

Image



Look! It's that screen again!

Image



Here you can give some info on your picture. Once you're done, do that thing again
Image



Click Continue





You have now successfully uploaded a picture.

Image



Putting a picture onto the forum

Click on your picture.

Image



You'll be presented with this screen. Copy the link where it says Direct URL.

Image



Paste it into your post.

Image



Highlight the link and then click Img

Image


Bingo! You have posted an image.

Image


Note

Instead of posting a full size image you can use the Forum Thumbnail feature.


Follow the instructions as above except, intsead if highlighting and copying the Direct URL, do the same to the Forum Thumbnail option.

Image



This will make your large picture a lot more forum friendly. Clicking on it will open it up in your browser and show it at it's original size.

Image



Putting a signature on your profile

Click the user control panel.

Image



Hit Profile then Edit Signature.

Image



Copy and paste in your link as described in the section Putting a picture on the forum.

Image


Done!

Image

Nice bort :D

One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
All told, the Big Three need 69.9pn, most of that going to the Oxygenator and Atmospheric regulator."

Love the use of the spoiler :D:D

Might be worth adding a note (if not already there, must have missed it :S) about the no resizing upload type which wont resize images.

You would need to save them as either a .jpg, .png or gif to use as a signature. In PS choose: File>Save for the web.

You can upload any file to the uploader (mp3, psd, etc...)

Does this answer your questions?
