On how to load up my mug shot...

Post by peter cornbriar » Sat Oct 04, 2014 9:25 am

Dear CPS members:
Would like one,(not all the ways), simple technique to transfer my mug from my digital camera to the mug shot thread.

Please,in easy,logical steps that won't strain my corncob brain :?
The glory of God is the nature of God - that God is good.He is unfailingly good.He never changes,He will always be good.God has called us to do what we cannot do,only He can do it.He has called us to live in His faithfulness,He has called us to live in His consistency,that He will come and do all the things that need to be done.

This has not been updated since changes have been made in the CPS website, so the pictures are a little off:
coco, in another thread, wrote:It isn't obvious. Here's how:
- Put your photo onto a photo site, like photobucket.com
- Copy the direct link from the photo site, and paste it into your post
- Select the link in your post, and then click the "Img" button. This will put the correct code into your post to link to the photo on the photo site

1. Upload your photo to Photobucket
Image
(I'm using Ubuntu Linux, so some things on my computer may look a bit different than on your computer, but the principles will still apply)



2. Click on the photo you wish to post in your Photobucket library, and then copy the direct link to your clipboard.
Image
(Copying the Direct link should be as simple as clicking inside the little box containing the link. That being said, Photobucket uses Adobe Flash, which is buggy and prone to failure. You may have to select the link and hit Cntrl-C to copy or something.)



3. Now, in your CPS post box, paste the direct link from your clipboard.



4. Select the link you just posted. (Ubuntu highlights in orange; I think Windows does it in blue. No matter.)

5. Click the "Img" button

I suspect that this may be the place where things are going awry for you. All of the buttons work in two ways:
a. They put syntactically proper codes on either side of the selected text (per our example), or
b. If no text has been selected, they put the beginning part of the code into the post when you click them, and then the end part of the code the next time you click them. So, if you don't know exactly what is going on, it is easy to end up with one beginning code and two end codes, or something of the like. The resulting post will either display extra code markers or not work at all.


6. Post that thing

Upload your pics to a website like photobucket or similar. Once done, post to CPS:

Code: Select all

Fixed it one more time. That equals sign doesn't belong.
