    posting photos question

    Hi
    I was hoping to post a couple of old family photos to get opinions on their age but I don't have the "manage attachments" option when I try to post a new thread in Family tree photos. Could it be to do with permission? or number of posts? Sorry if I'm just missing something really obvious.
    Thanks

    hi its a long time since I did that, but you usually have to have a hosting site like Photobucket for your photos ,then you can post them on here.

      I use an app called Tapatalk to access Family Tree Forum from my mobile and this also allows you to post photos directly to the forum. Here is one of Bowie, my son's four month old English Sheepdog.

        For some reason I cannot use the "insert image" icon on this Family Tree Photos forum in order to upload an image from my computer - it will only accept a url. On the research forums however there is an option to do so from your own computer. I had a look this morning and the option is still there but not here.
        post 158 on research for example I added red dots to the image before uploading. I don't understand why this is so?

          Just had a look through the various forums and it appears this is virtually the only one that requires you to post images using a url from somewhere like Photoshop or Tapatalk.

          From sticky post at top of forum
          "Image information thread
          When posting images in the Family Tree Photos forum for restoration purposes or for help in deciphering detail, it is necessary that the image is initially uploaded to an image hosting site such as Photobucket. The relevant link from the external site is then posted on the forum.

          Posting images using the attachment facility provided by the vBulletin software reduces the size of the image considerably, even if it has been scanned at a high resolution. For this reason the attachment option has been switched off in the Family Tree Photos forum. "

            Best to put these photos on community or research forums if you want an opinion if you don't wish to use an outside storage facility.

              And what is Bowie's noble lineage? :-)

                      Ha ha, my son called him Bowie because he has a brown eye and a blue eye. Little grandson George is a bit wary of him lol.
