How to Post Photos

Post by Kip »

You are new here and we welcome you to "The Asylum". I hope you take the time to stop by the Member Introduction area and tell us a bit about yourself and how you found your way here.

You will quickly discover that we love photos, photos, and more photos. The obvious question we get a lot is.. How do I post photos?

Warning - Photo security

Users of this forum are reminded that photographs taken with mobile devices (such as phones or tablets) can contain information that shows the location of the picture, specifically longitude and latitude. Depending on the hosting site used, this information can remain embedded in the picture file, and thus is still present if the image is subsequently downloaded.

Photograph files that are uploaded directly to this forum (using the attachment option) are not edited or re-sized, and therefore, any embedded location data will remain in place. It is our understanding that any photo hosting site that does not re-size or edit the pictures will also retain the location data.

If you do not wish to allow other users to know the precise location of your pictures, please ensure you take steps to disable the location information on the camera of your mobile device.

Open a new Topic or Reply to a Topic and the posting box will open. Or hit quick reply at the bottom of a thread. Then follow the arrows.

If you do not want to upload directly to the forum, you may paste links to photos that are stored elsewhere. In order to do this you must have your photos uploaded to a photo hosting site such as .There are others, but let's start here.


1. Open an “imgur” account (it’s simple and free) and upload photos from your computer to “imgur”. Once uploaded you may now edit/enhance your photos if you wish.

2. On your “imgur” image page, simply select the photo you wish to post and double click to open. A box will appear on the right side of the page that has 6 link codes in it. Move your curser to the one that says BBcode (message boards and forums). Now just click the blue copy button next to the code. A green line should now surround the code to show you have been successful. You are done here.


You can right click on the image and click copy link address you can then paste it within the "img" tags of your post.

3. Now go to the forum thread or topic you wish to post your photo in and click "New Topic" or "Post Reply" depending where you go.

4. Put your curser in the box and right click and paste. Your copied code “imgur” from should magically appear. You may click on preview to verify.

5. Now you may finish typing your message and hit Save, Preview or Submit


1. Open an Image shack account and upload your photos from your computer to Imageshack. Once uploaded you may edit/enhance your photos if you wish.

2. Select the photo you wish to post and an orange frame will appear around the photo.

3. On the upper right side of the screen you will see a box headed "My Images". Move curser over and click on "My Image shack" in drop down box.

4. Click on Image you wish to post. Your image will enlarge and a box "Links to share this Image" will appear on the right

5. Highlight and copy the "Direct"code in the box.

6. Now go to the forum thread or topic you wish to post your photo in and click "New Topic" or "Post Reply" depending where you go.

7. Click on the IMG box over the text the box, right click and paste your code in the location of the curser. Your copied code from Imageshack should magically appear. You may click on preview to verify.

8. Now you may finish typing your message and hit Save, Preview or Submit

You can also upload photos from whatever mobile device you are using, whether it is a phone or tablet.

Go to the section you want to upload the photo.

Tap on "Quick reply".

Click on the "^" arrow icon on the left hand side.
You will see "Photos, Files, Videos".

Underneath this is a symbol with a "+" plus marker on it. Click this.

This brings up "Pick a source" with a selection to choose from : Camera, Gallery, Attachment. Click on Gallery.

This brings you to the gallery in your phone or tablet.

Click on the small box on the photo you wish to select. If you want to upload more than one photo, then just click on the other photos you want. You can select up to nine photos. A Green correct sign will be in the small box after you have selected that photo. Once finished selecting, Click on the "Send(0/9)" at the top of the screen.
(0/9) will be (1/9) if uploading one photo or whatever number of photos you are uploading.

You then see the photos uploading in a small size saying "processing".
Once they have finished uploading, you will see the image of the photos.
You have to write a comment as it won't let you finish the post otherwise.
Once you have finished commenting, Click the "Paper Plane" symbol at the top of the screen.

Your post should now be posted.
