Default Step x Step = Posting Pictures

Seems several have a hard time posting pics. Photos for reference...




1. Take pictures with your phone

2. In your photo library on your phone, hit the forward button. Normally this is a little box with an arrow.

3. Select the picture or picture(s) you want to use.

4. Select the email icon. Looks like an envelope

5. When the email box pops up. Enter your complete email address.

5. Push the send button

6. Next prompt will be "file size". Medium will always work. Large mostly works but sometimes it doesnt.

7. On the main screen of your computer where all the icons are. Right click, and you will see a button that says "new". Click "new", then "Folder". Name this folder whatever you want. I named mine ATTACH for this demo. You can name it whatever you want.

8. Open your email on your desktop or laptop computer.

9. Some email is different that others. Some may have a button to "download attachments" most you can just drag the pictures by holding the left mouse button and letting go of the button when you are over the folder. You can either drag the pictures or save attachments into this folder. Either way you need to save the pictures in your email to the folder you created on your desktop.

10. Go to Ford Barn and start and new thread or reply to existing thread.

11. Down the screen a bit is a button that says "manage attachments" click it.

12. a little window will pop-up with 7 lines that say "choose". On each line select each picture you want to post. These should now be in the folder you created on your desktop. you will need to select that folder and then pick each photo for each line that says choose.

13. After you choose all the photos. Click the "upload" button. This may take a second or 2. After they upload, click close window.

14. Hit "post" or "submit new thread"

12. Your done!

--------------------------------------------

You can also access FordBarn from your phone and make a post. The "manage attachments" will go to your photo library. This is easier but tough to do on the tiny screen.

Yes that’s it.... of course the photo needs to be on your phone for it to work. I use it to save the hassle of doing the above mentioned steps. It’s one click (well two) and done.... attached is a photo of what this forum looks like in the app. I selected medium size for the attached phone screen shot, however I am learning small seems to work best... I use a Iphone so it may be different for other phone users.

One thing I really do not like is non-imbedded photos! There are so many sites online that you go to that have all the photos missing!! A lot of good information is missing on the HAMB because of this.

I'll have to keep trying. It wants to send my test picture to the fancy TV I have that I don't know how to use except, well, to watch TV. Thanks for the step by step as your posts and pics are stellar examples, along with your project.

I downloaded a photo editing program on my phone that allows you to reduce file size. I really refer using my desktop, but the phone works. It"s fairly quick and easy either way once you get accustom to it.

Pics of the 3 window. Taken about 30 years ago shined up and ready for a car show. 2nd pic (lousy graphics) taken about 3 months ago after a 23 year slumber. I'll post better pics soon.

There are more ways to do this than ive shown here. I chose this way because most people seem to have problem with errors or file size. This process should correct those types of errors.

Also, when you do it this way you are saving your photos of your project in folders named whatever you want to name them of your hardrive. Later, when you make an album or lose your phone or delete stuff by accident. You will have a nice organized group of folders with all the related pictures. Again, this is just one way. There are several!

Thanks for this. It isn't how I do it, I'm too old school, it's all done off my computer.

I was thinking of doing a video showing at least one way of doing it. Maybe one for the hamb too as they're slightly different.

Mart.

Probably because it's the only picture of the car he has. AND, this thread is about posting pictures NOT '32 Fords.

The answer to this question is simple. I made a mistake and clicked on the wrong button. Once it attached I didn't readily see how to delete it. I Assumed reasonable people would see my apology in advance as I am new to this. The hour was late as I work 10 hour shifts so I submitted. In retrospect out of respect for The Ford Barn I should never have posted any pics of the 3 window as it doesn't meet the criteria of this forum. My apologies. I won't be posting again.
