With a Mac

(Hit the quote button to see the url and img stuff)

The result you want:


#1 - Drag your image from iPhoto to the desktop

#2 - Go to servimg.com (setting up an account is free and only requires an email address)

#3 - Don't hit the advertisement's "Download" "Play Now" or the "You have 1 new message" crap

Click on "upload" (left side). Then click "Choose File". A "choose file box will appear".

Drag the image from the desktop to the "choose file" box

Click 'Choose"



#4 - Click 'Host it"



#5 - The image with a buch of links will appear



#6 - Copy 'n Paste the BBcode link for "image" (as shown above) to you Vintage Van post.

It's a lot easier than is sounds. Trust me Wink

Why not just use the 'Host an image' button?

Thanks Scott. Ya know, I did that once and I believe it had me open an account. That's the way I figured it out and haven't used the button since.

If you use the 'host an image' button, you won't get those tricky advertisement things.

Playing with it now I find I can't get the pop-up window to leave the reply box.

On Apple computers clicking 'Copy' only highlights the text, then you either right-click on the text and choose Copy from the pop-up menu, or press the 'Apple Key' + 'C' at the same time.

You can then Paste in the next step either by right-clicking in the window and choosing Paste from the pop-up menu, or press the 'Apple Key' + 'P' at the same time.


This post above is the only hitch I had with using my Mac. Sometimes to get the window out of the way I have to choose the color or face icon at the top, then click Preview to loose the next pop up. I guess I've done it so many times I do it without thinking. I don't think I ever had to open an account though.

It's really just a matter of using what works best for each of us.

I was thrilled to be able to finally post pics. Another forum I'm on will let you post a pic as an attachment, but sometimes it's a pita, so I always use the hosting method instead.

I believe servimg.com doesn't have a limit to the number of pics you can host there, but you can only upload one at a time. I've also had issues where if I'm posting a bunch of pics at a time, some of the pics don't download correctly.

Photobucket is much much more user friendly, but I've lost pics on there.

BTW Scott, thanks so much for teaching me the Command+shift+4 thing. It's come in very handy Smile
