Att/ Thermalben. Ben, somewhere in the vast forum area, you or one swellnets staff, briefly explained how to upload a photo and attach to one's post. The last uploaded photo I've seen, I think was of popout at cronulla in "Undergound heroes" . I was hoping you'd be kind enough to repeat the steps in laymans terms ( when you have the time), so regular punters may be able to enhance this forum experience for all, keeping within the code of conduct rules, of course.
We highly recommend 'imgur' for image hosting (http://imgur.com/). You don't even need to register with them (although if you do, it'll help you find previously uploaded files).
Simply upload a photo via the 'Computer' link on the RH column, follow the instructions and then copy the URL provided under 'Direct Link (email & IM)'.
Then in a forum thread, wrap the image URL with image tags, ie [img] and [/img].
For example, [img]http://_______[/img]
(Thermalben using the "chiefs" voice) - "What part didn't you understand, dog?"
( Sheepdog using his best Maxwell Smart voice). " Well , chief, the part after ' we highly recommend"... "
;) Nah, thanks ben...... I'll have a look.....

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .
Wow!!!!!! Hung in the lip thanks to that offshore "gale".... Awesome wellsy....
Testing this out
Yeah nah yeah nah
Some changes to Photobucket now charging re pics ??
Just a test from an old photo, no charge yet maybe for new shots??
Ah theres a few changes it seems for third party viewing
Do you reckon that you could somehow make it easier to put photos on Swellnet ?
I’ve tried that Imgur deal , it’s fucked and I’m not going near it. There’s only an imgur app which I don’t want to join.
This little guy flew into my front window and is recovering. eventually he recovered and flew away
Female white throated tree creeper I think .
You’re on the East coast Ralph ?
Better having one of them at your window than a male soft shoed yardcreeper . At least the tree creeper doesn’t snow drop.
Yes is a tree creeper :). Funny name hey
Just signed up to imgur, deleted it 2 minutes later...
fark what a confusing thing that is
nope, still a computer idiot
Goofyfoot, you upload your pic on imgBB and then go to the embed code 'BBCode full linked' and select. Copy the code and paste it in the thread.
Got it, thanks...
only took me 4 years
I love that spot !
That is such a great photo. And not just 'cos it's me! Barrelled from take-off to ledge.
Insane timing and great composition.
Taken on old school film by a regular contributor on here.
I didn't know about it till I was overseas and someone said it was the WOTD on a newish website run by an old ex-SA boy.
I remember I was a bit concerned because back then photos of that spot were never in the media pretty much, and I was named in full! As well as the photog (though he was under his nickname). At least the spot wasn't mentioned though the state was.
I've cropped out the names here, obviously.
Actually, I would love to get a print of it if you've still got it around somewhere, YS. Catch ya on the Book.
Yes that’s a classic pic facto. Smoking wave
Coulda been deeper...
Oh my god it actually works
Beautiful shot, Andy.
Awesome photos folks.
Ah that old transparency factotum. It was taken on Kodachrome 64 slide film which was something I liked to play around with in my photography days. It was tricky to use. Light and exposure settings had to be perfect to get a good shot.
Purchase of the film included prepaid prossessing and it had to be sent away to Kodak in a small yellow envelope that came in the box.
It was exciting waiting the few weeks for the slides to arrive in the mail not knowing what sort of images you had taken.
That slide and my others are still around and in safe storage by the owner of this website as I was concerned that a dusty box in my shed wasn’t the best method of preservation.
There might be a way to get a copy to you, either digitally scanned via email or a printed copy?
I’m not on social media but if you email Swellnet and get my contact details I’d do whatever legwork is necessary to get it to you mate.
I'm not cheap,
But I'm free.
Unbelievable...it finally worked
Anyway that’s where I’ve been the last two weeks:-)
Haha crg, I’m not the only one that’s been struggling
That looks insane to btw
It seems ImgBB is the way to go instead of Imgur then.
I find imgur pretty simple.
Post Lismore/northern rivers floods 2017. Water had cleaned up but sand still miles out to sea.
just giving this a test.
Self-isolation meets Swellnet!
