How to Post Photos on the R200 Owners Club Forum

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Thu May 30, 2019 10:06 am

With a lot of new members we thought this 'how to' guide might come in useful.

It has been written using Flickr - https://www.flickr.com - as the example photo hosting site but this is only one of many such sites and is not a recommendation as such, but it does seem to work pretty well...

So after signing-up for an account you need to upload the photos you want to post on this forum. Click here to upload

Image


Once uploaded, click the photo you want to share then click the share button

Image


Now select the option to share to a Bulletin Board , in this case 'BBcode'
Image


Copy the link details and past then into your thread. You can shorten it to just the code between the "img" tags
"[ img]https://live.staticflickr.com/12345/1234512345b.jpg[/ img]"

If you're copying more than one image you'll find it easier to keep both the club forum and photo hosting sites open at the same time.

Does anybody else have recommendations for other photo hosting sites?
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

i personally use imgbb.com, pretty much a case of right click on the image, copy image address and paste it in the img code as above.
Also only post the pic then not all the extra flickr adverts...*laughs*
