Since last time we all have the pleasure to meet new members in Fly Away and since i have notice a lot of them asking how they can upload their screenshots or to create a signature in their profiles i would like to share my small knowledges in order to help in this point.

Lets start Wink

First of all we must capture our screen.This can be done by using one of the following programs Arrow


Screenhunter Arrow
http://www.wisdom-soft.com/products/screenhunter_free.htm

or

Grabclipsave Arrow

http://www.simviation.com/fsdtutscreensh.htm

or from here(23rd program)



Most of us upload our pics in 2 sites.

http://www.photobucket.com/

&

http://www.imageshack.us/


The first one(Photobucket) offers the ability to create more than one albums and host our pics there.We can send the link of these album to other people(by copy and paste the adress from our browser)

The most preferable utility is that we can host a screenshoot or a pic.... Arrow




.....by hitting Browse and choose it from our folder and just Submit it.(here you can see that we can upload until 19 pictures by once if we choose the Submit Multiple Pictures in the upper level of the page.)


When we finished upload our pics,if we scroll down we will notice the following Arrow



As you can see in the above example you have your picture uploaded and
you have some choices under it.
The most common way is to copy the Img URL line and paste it (as i have done to post the pics for this topic).

The same way (copy the Img URL) we use if we want to add a pic in our signature.
We go to our profile and copy the Img URL in the signature blank .Here is an example of mine Arrow



Finish the signature by doing this.
In your Profile (top of forum) put a "bullet" '' . '' (dot) in Always attach my signature: yes. Arrow



Then press "Submit" in the bottom of the page.
In your reply post put a checkmark in Attach signature (signatures can be changed in profile).

The Photobucket needs a simple and free registration.


NOTICE:I would like to suggest to upload resizing or cropped pics cause a huge pic expands the page size(it happens to this topic too...)or use the following method...


......What about if we need to post more than one screenshots or pics in our topic and we dont want to make others scrolling for ever... Question Wink
Well...we can simple use the following process on Photobucket suggested by dear Liono:

At the bottom click Generate HTML and IMG code. Then some options come up and choose IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards - recommended.

...or you can use Imageshack.

Here the process is the following.As you can see below Arrow



There is a Browse button here too.
We choose from our folder the pic we want to upload.Next step is to hit host it and after a while we will get the next screen Arrow



We have several options to choose.I use the second one Arrow

Thumbnail for forums (1)


....by copy and paste the URL left of this choice, and we get the following
result Arrow



Now if we hit this thumbnail a new full view page will open.
With this way we avoid to make our post huge,but the users of 56k connections may have to wait a litle more. Crying or Very sad

This is my way.i hope it helps.Any more comments are acceptable. Wink

Sorry for my bad English. Embarassed

Your initiative is greatly appreciated Greekman -- Thanks Wink
Have you ever had that feeling, where everything just seems right, and you have no cares in the world..As if heaven smiled down upon you, and told you everything was going to be ok?




Yea, neither have I

Nicely done Greekman, if you want to add how to put it into your signature that would make it two for one.

In the post window, make sure that you don't have a check at Disable BBCode.

On your profile page, under the word Signature, it should say BBCode ON

On the profile page, in the preferences area, make sure Always allow BBCode is marked -yes, and always allow HTML - yes

On the post window, Options(lower LH side) it shoud say-BBCode ON

Greekman, i would like to thank you for an excellent tutorial on uploading screenshots! Without your tuition i would not have bee able to show the screenshots of my"around the World in WW11 props" in the general section (from page 3 onwards and continuing in "Around the World in WW11 props part2?). I would have had no idea without following your excellent tuition. Thank you!
