Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Uploading directly from computer onto Servimg.

We are going to show you how to upload images from your computer directly to the ServImg host that the forum uses.
First, go to the topic where you want to post your pictures.  That can be a new topic or a reply to the existing topic.
Go to the topic editor (aka the reply area) click on the little icon with the floppy disk (if you rest your cursor there will a tooltip will pop up showing "Host an Image") which will bring up the Servimg host.
You have a couple of different options here, you can drag 'n drop your files directly or you can select your files.
Another option you have is to resize your pictures.  The forum defaults to 800 pixels, however you can make them smaller or slightly bigger.  We recommend that you leave them at 800 pixels.  Making the pictures too big makes the forum scroll sideways - an inconvenience no one likes.


Click on "Select Files" and you'll be shown a list of files.  You may have to move to the directory (folder)that contains the files you're looking for.
Note that you may be shown a list of files as in the YouTube video or you may be given a gallery - that depends on you operating system and any file managers that may have been installed.


Once you've selected your files click on "Open" and they'll be inserted into the ServImg upload application.
You can click on the blue "Send All" to send all the files to ServImg at once or click on the blue upload arrow to the right of the image to upload them individually.  The orange buttons either remove all the pictures or the individual pictures.


Uploading is normally quick and you're shown three links for each picture.  Most people will select "Insert All" which puts the links for all your pictures into the editor box at the cursor location.
Once you've done that, just go one editing your post.  As a courtesy to others, if you have no text between images, it's nice to insert a blank line betwen pictures - they just look better.


Another option for selecting pictures, when a file is hosted someplace else, the URL option (see the first picture).  Select URL, copy the image URL into that block and everything continues as if you had selected a file.  
Not all images can be uploaded to ServImg this way.  Images from FaceBook, for example, cannot be uploaded to ServImg this way, they'll show up as an invalid image.  See "Using an outside URL to paste into the forum" for an example of how to post FaceBook images.  


One issue that people have run into is that their images come up sideways.  There is no remedy for that as far as we know.  Clicking on the image will take you to the library on ServImg and there's no way to rotate the image as there are on other hosts.

Uploading directly from computer to photobucket.

Posting using photobucket is straightforward in 5 steps.
1) Log into your PhotoBucket account and then select Upload


2) I find it easiest to drag 'n drop pictures to upload


3) Once a picture is uploaded, click on the picture - not the 'save' block


4) Click on the link beside "Direct" this saves the link.


So far we've uploaded the picture to photobucket, now we need to insert it into the message we're posting.
Click on the second picture icon (to the left of the link icon) - it's what I'm pointing to with the arrow; then right click in the box titled "URL" and past the saved link and click insert.


This message now looks like:
Code:

4) Click on the link beside [b]"Direct"[/b] this saves the link.

and if everything has worked right, yours should look similar.

Of course, a few choice comments:

  • Photobucket seems to be considerably slower than Servimg
  • Adblock plus CANNOT be enabled while you're using photobucket.
  • Flash MUST be enabled for photobucket to work.
  • I'm not impressed!

Using outside URL to paste onto forum.

This option to insert a picture on the forum works with Determine the address (outside URL) of a picture.  Once you've determined what the URL is, inserting into your post is simple.

Click on the Picture Icon (next to the one with the floppy disk)


Which brings up the box into which you can paste the URL and optionally resize it if you wish.

Right click and paste the URL into the URL box, click on "Insert" and your image is inserted into your message.

Uploading directly from phone/tablet onto Servimg.

In this tutorial we will show you how to upload directly from your phone/tablet onto Servimg. In this example, we are using an iPad with the desktop mode enabled.


In your post reply window, you will click on the image icon with the floppy disk, which will bring up the Servimg upload window. Hit "Select Files".




Your device will bring up this option or an option very similar. If you have the photo saved in your gallery, choose that option. If any other options pertain to you, then choose that option instead.



Once you choose your photos / the gallery option, you select which folder your image is in.




Then select the photo you wish to upload. You can select multiple photos during this step.




Once your image(s) is selected, hit done.




Your image will be inserted into the Servimg upload window.



Select "Send All" and your image(s) will be uploaded. Once all are uploaded, then click "Insert All" and this will insert all of your uploaded images into your post reply.




Your image code will be inserted into your reply and you can add your post text.




Hit preview and your image should be inserted successfully into your post.

Determine the address (URL) of a picture

If the picture you want to insert into a message already exists on the web, rather than trying to upload the image to a hosting service (Servimg or PhotoBucket, for example) you can retrieve the URL of the picture and use that instead.

Each browser has it's own way of determining the URL of a picture.  Each of these starts with 'right clicking' on the picture.

For FireFox - select Copy Image Location


For Chrome - select Copy Image Address


For MS Edge - select Copy


For Opera - select Copy Image Address


After selecting (clicking on) the desired option, move the cursor to wherever you want to put the link and press Ctl-v or right-click->paste.



Note: While almost any image's URL can be used when 'Inert Image' several services use non-standard formats for their URL's and cannot be hosted by ServImg.  FaceBook is among these.
