Ah, okay, that is because you have to post the URL of your image into the small yellow mountain / sun icon in the EDIT POST text editor.

Try that and let me know if it works.

Cheers,

~Rebecca

Ah, I figured it out. It seems that the insert image script is broken, you have to ise the [IMG][/IMG] tags instead.

Question

Ok, sorry if this is obvious but...
You lost me on the "use photobucket" deal. I'm guessing that is a way for basic users to be able to represent more than the five images that can be posted to their individual gallery yes?
So if I decided to upgrade to a full CGS membership I wouldn't have to jump through the hoops? Because then I could post unlimited directly here.

<---obviously new but mamanged to post a pic to my gallery...or portfolio...whichever it is...that distinction is still a wee bit unclear too.

Hi there, no worries. Photobucket is an image host which I recommend to be used for CGTalk posting ~ you can use it to host images for CGPortfolio images, too, but only for extra images which you would want to post beneath your main image which you have uploaded to your CGPortfolio Gallery as closeups, or in your blog. For example, in my blog, I have posted images that I have hosted through Photobucket:

http://rebeccak.cgsociety.org/blog/

To post images in my blog, I have to use the tags [img] and [/img] and paste the Photobucket URL of my image in between.

But in my Gallery, all of the images are uploaded directly through CGPortfolio from my computer:

http://rebeccak.cgsociety.org/gallery/

As a CGSociety member, I can upload an unlimited number of images, either directly from my computer, or hosted by an image host such as Photobucket. A free CGTalk member can upload 5 images ~ I don't believe you would be able to post images in your Gallery in any other way than by uploading them directly from your machine to CGPortfolio. If you want to show a lot of work, then it becomes worth it to upgrade to a paid CGSociety membership. It's definitely a great time to do so, due to CGPortfolio.

Right. But don't confuse CGPortfolio with just the posting that you do on the main forums here. CGPortfolio is a website of it's own, with it's own rules. On CGTalk Forums, you can host and post as many images as you wish ~ using Photobucket or other image host service. You can also add images as attachments, but it's much better to host images as then people do not have to click on your image to see it. Images which are just plainly visible because they have been image hosted will receive much more attention.

Ah, okay, I'll check it out.

Any more questions, please feel free to let me know. You should also activate your Private Message system through your User Control Panel at the top of the screen. That way, people through the site can communicate with you.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi and thanks for the image hosting tutorial!
I have a question though.
Do you know how it is possible to post large images?Everytime i tried to post something(at other sites,sorry)photobucket automatically resized it...All the files that i upload to photobucket are 72dpi.So why is that happening??
Thanks in advance.

Polonoid,

Photobucket will automatically resize any image that is over 1 MB in size. JPG images that are saved for web should usually be fairly small ~ typically when posting to web forums, you want your images to be no greater than 800 pixels wide anyway, so people don't have to scroll ~ it sounds as though you are trying to post huge images. Try reducing your image to 800 pixels wide at 72 dpi, and then saving your image for web, and you should be fine.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi ppl, photobucket is all nice and all, but it might be an idea to check out THIS link instead.
This site (ImageShack) is faster, no resizing, more options and you DONT have to REGISTER.

I also made a guide for uploading/downloading files like .rar and .3dm this site is also free, fast and dont need you do register. There are tons of adds, and the design sucks, but the service provided is fantastic, check it out HERE.

peace =)

EDIT: JUNE 5, 2006:

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT PHOTOBUCKET DOES NOT ALLOW NUDE IMAGES TO BE HOSTED, ARTISTIC OR OTHERWISE.

This has been posing a problem for many of our members. Please report and link here posts containing missing / broken links due to Photobucket's new nudity rule.

I am currently looking into other image hosting options. Please stay tuned. I would advise people not to contact Photobucket, as this will only draw attention to your account.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Rebeccak,

I have some free webspace and bandwidh to spare. I'd be more than willing to set up a image sharing script for my fellow CGTalkers. Are you guys interested?

Tocpe you offer is very kind, but I have to warn you that the bandwith requirements would be QUITE brutal for your server. If that is Ok, then welcome..

what kind of bandwidth usage are we talking? I could cap per user bandwidth usage, perhaps.
