  • Step by Step: How to post photos

    First, you need to utilize a secondary account, like photobucket, flickr, etc.

    After uploading your photo to their site there are boxes below or beside the image with some text that looks like this:

    5) Copy and paste that into your message here on CORA

    Here is detailed instructions about imageshack specifically.

    Since myself and others have had some problems to upload photos, I thought I would post this to show step by step how.

    1) upload your images to an image host site. I use this link it's free and takes 2sec to setup an account
    If you want to change the size (like 800x600) for the photo contest select the UPLOAD OPTION / RESIZING and pick what size you want.

    2) Open and view the image you want to post.

    3) Right click on the image and select PROPERTIES

    4) Go to the (Address URL) this is the http: highlight and copy the http link

    5) Now in your post at the top select Insert Image(Square with a Mountain) this will give you a prompt that will ask for the URL of you image

    6) Right click in the line that shows http: and paste the link you copied.

    7) Your image should then be displayed in the post.

    8) Another way is to just paste the link you copied directly in the post. Your image will not be displayed but a hyperlink to the URL will. Just click on the link and up pops your photo.

          I have been asked about posting pictures with a phone.

          I do not have the step by steps
          but I have been told that

          iPhones and Andriods both have Photobucket apps the only thing is having to switch between the browser and the app to get the link and then switch back to paste it in.

            Here is the step by step on how to post photos via photobucket on the iPhone:

            Take a photo and save it to your camera roll. Go to the photobucket app and click on the "+" sign in the lower left corner.


            Then click the upload arrow. This is the top button of the three. Next you will select the picture you want to upload, click next. Then you select where you want to upload it to. In most cases this should be "your bucket."


            Once you select your bucket it hit the upload button above. This will upload the picture to photobucket. At this point you will have any photos you want stored into photobucket.

            To get them onto CORAs website is pretty simple. All you have to do is select the picture you want by touching anyone. This will pull up a tool bar at the bottom of the image. All you have to do is select the "i" button in the lower left corner. This will pull up the following page:


            From here all you have to do is select the "IMG" link at the bottom. This will automatically copy the link for you. To paste the picture into a post just select the image link at the top of the posting. It is the yellow box with the mountains in it. This will pull up an area that will allow you to paste the previously copied link. Just hit ok and your done.

            Pretty simple. Not sure if it works the same way with androids, but it shouldn't be that much different. Hopefully this help.
