How do I get pics on the post?

9 posts in this topic

I had to ask too. Go to the photography forum. There is a "posting pics" thread there that is pretty good at guiding you through it. Once you do it a time or two you'll see it is pretty easy. The moderators of that forum are pretty good at helping out too.

Hosting image files would take up an awful amount of space on a server for a site this size. Just about every large forum will require you to use some sort of third party image hosting. Photobucket happens to be easy, it's free, it uploads fast, and with one click you can copy the correct code to insert an image. Without it this site would either run very slow or would cost something ridiculous to keep up and running. Those other sites you mention have hundreds or thousands of servers, this site probably has less than a handful of servers (at least that's all that would be necessary for the forums).

Nick explained it all right there. Once you do it a couple of times, it really is simple.

Not only that, but places like Photobucket now offer some great image editing software and serve as a great backup for your photos.

Crappiekid-

At first I felt the same way but I finally gave in and started using photobucket. I got some help from fellow FM'ers with the "how-to's" and I found out it is really no big deal and easy to use.

Good luck.

    • that would be samanthasquatch 
    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
