[FAQ]How to attach a file? Tutorial with pictures.

Postby gocny » November 14th, 2008, 11:47 am

First of all, we need to know what kind of file can we upload. Basically all different types of files such as .jpg, .gif, .mp3, .doc, .xls and so on...but I think most of us are only interested in attaching bonsai related pictures and share with everyone here.

Now we just use attaching a picture as an example.

We need to know there are 2 ways to share your pictures. The first way is "attach" a file. The second way is "show a picture from an external source". We will explain both ways hereafter.

First way: "attach" a file.
Using this way will upload your picture to ausbonsai.com.

Currently the restriction of attaching a file is outlined below:

Maximum file size of each file: 2Mb
Max attachments per post: 20
Max attachments per private message: 5

A thumbnail will be created in all possible situations.
Maximum thumbnail width in pixel: 650px
Minimum thumbnail file size (Do not create a thumbnail for images smaller than this.): 20Kb
Maximum image dimensions: no limit.


To start attaching files:

uploadpic1.gif

uploadpic2.gif

uploadpic3.gif

uploadpic4.gif


Second way: "show a picture from external source".
Using this way means you don't actually upload anything to ausbonsai.com but quote a picture from another website or your photo album. This also means you might need a space or album to store these pictures first. Some sites such as Photobucket are pretty good place to publish your photos. Google picasa is also popular.

To quote a file:
uploadpic5.gif

uploadpic6.gif


If the width of your picture is greater than 700px then it will be automatically resized. The full size picture will be shown by clicking that resized picture. Example: see this post: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=29

Any other question please don't hesitate to ask. ;)

I've found the 'Upload' button, I've tried to attach a photo but it was rejected. Reading the Ausbonsai destructions the max I can upload is 2mb. What I don't understand [among a galaxy of other things] is why some of my photos are 625 kb and the next is 2.8mb? Different cameras - does that account for it. My knowledge does not extend this far. Any advice? How do I reduce the photos to the allowed limits??

Hi Gocny / Ausbonsa

Similar to this, How does one upload multiple images at a time?

On the upload Page, It gives the impression that one can upload multiple photos at the same time but I cannot figure out how as I cannot multi select several a ta time

TIA
