Everything I know about posting pics and graphs

Postby WILD BILL » Sun Mar 01, 2009 2:41 pm

As this seems to come up every now and again and I need a way to repay everyone for all the help I've gotten here I tought I'ld put toghter what I hope to be a step by step HOW TO on capturing, resizing, and posting graphs and pics.

I will focus on graphs but posting a graph but the resizing and posting of pics is done in the same manner so this should cover everything.

First let's start with the tools needed to get the job done. You will need an image resizng prgram and a site to host your pics on. I use http://photobucket.com/ for hosting and http://www.download.com/FastStone-Image ... 24485.html for resizng. Both are free and easy to use.

The first step is to open the graph on you PC. once you have the graph you wish to post on the screen press the CONTROL and PRNT/SCREEN buttons at the same time. I know, it looks like nothing happened but it did. This saves a screen shot of what was on your monitor.

Now go to your desktop and open PAINT. Select EDIT then PASTE.

Image

You should now see your graph pasted in PAINT like this.

Image

Now select FILE then SAVE AS

Image

That will bing up the box where title the pic and select how you want the file saved. SAve the file in MY PICS and be sure you give it a file name you can find save the file as a JPEG. If you don't save it as a JPEG it will not appear as a pic later.

Image

Now that your graph is saved as a pic we can move to resizing. Open FastStone-Image-Viewer and click on the pic you need resized. Then click the resize button iat the top.

Image

On this screen you only need to lower the number in the first box and it will automaticlly change the second.

Image

Press OK and then select your next pic to resize and it will ask you to save changes. If you want to save the original pic before it was resized simply change the file name at this time.

Image


Now were ready to upload them to PHOTOBUCKET. Select the CHOOSE FILES icon

Image

Select the files you wish to upload

Image

They will start automaticlly and you should asee this when they are being uploaded

Image

Once uploaded select the pic and click on the small box to the left of the tittle and the pic will become highlighted. Selecting more than one will allow you to post multiple pics in one post.

Image

Once you have your pics selected scroll down to the bottm of the page and click on the GENERATE HTML AND IMG CODES button.

Image

A new screen will appear. Find the box IMG images for message boards
Highlight and CUT everthing in the box.

Image

Now right click in the TEXT box and PASTE

Image

UBB codes are allready in the text when it appears.

Image

When you preveiw your post, you should see the pic/graph as long as you don't check the Disable BBCode in this post box just under the TEXT box.

Image

Click SUBMITT and your done.

I hope I didn't leave anything out smiley-lol

Yeah, Resizing isn't always needed. smiley-lol

I included it because with the free PB Aacct there is a max on size and most of todays cameras are well over that.

When posting a graph it probably wont be needed but to get pics on to PB it might be so I figured I'ld throw it in.

You choose the size you want them to be when you upload them to photobucket.com. I always choose medium.

Thanks Bill. I know that was posted just for me since I've never been able to figure it out. I'll just have to find some time to digest it.

Thanks!

It has recently come to my attention that on some computers you need to press the CNTRL FN and PRNT SCRN buttons in order to take a screen shot of the graph.

Windows XP is all I have used so I can't say what may need to be done in 7 or 8.


I'm set in my ways and refuse to try any of those new fangled operating sysytems they are trying to shove down our throats smiley-lol
