How to place photos in a post

Post by Icky » Sat Nov 30, 2019 10:53 am

It may not be obvious but placing your images / photos inline in a post makes for a more aesthetic look and is the preferred way of displaying your photos. In addition make sure you don't link to images on external sites as they can create broken links if the external site has issues.

Its easy to forget to click the Place inline button and that ends up with a post like this with all your phots at the end of a post marked as attachments. The picture below is of the post preview to show the attachment area and buttons as well:

However with the Place inline button you can place the cursor where you want the picture to be and click the Place inline and it will put the photo at that point in the post. One other tip is to add an extra new line around the pic to move the text away from it. The following images is of the same post but with the photo inline and spaced with new lines.

BUMP - (still looking for a :bump: icon @exxos)

Have seen a few images not being placed in line on the forum recently.

Please make sure when adding an image to also place inline so that the images flow with the text.

Me too, so worth the reminder. Also seen a few hosted externally, so have reminded folks this is not the way to do it.

Folks also do not forget to rotate your pictures so they're on their side or upside down. We need a neck workout in these covid times :lol:

Don't think that your movements and motives haven't gone unnoticed @terriblefire. You have recently been corrected by the photo correction department :)

Bump also.

Please do attach your pics as per the instructions in this post rather than simply attaching them.
