 Uploading and Posting Images

Uploading & Posting Images

Requirements for Uploading Images to the Forum

  • Must be in .gif or .jpg format.
  • Must be under 200KB in size. Use our Free Image Optimizer if your image is too large.
  • File names must not contain spaces or special characters such as, but not limited to ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) " : < > ?, these will most certainly break your images.

Uploading an Image to a Post

1. You must either be posting from the new topic or reply to topic links. You cannot upload images on a quick reply.
2. While looking at the post box, you will see a green camera icon below the area where you type in your post. It looks like this Camera Icon . Click on that icon and a window should pop up that looks like this...

Image Upload Pop Up

If you don't see this box, check that your pop-up blocker is not blocking it or it's hiding behind another window. There are several instances on the forum that use legitimate pop-ups, so you may want to mark Stamp Community as "safe". You will not get any advertising pop-ups from Stamp Community.

3. Click on the "browse" button and navigate to the image you want to upload, then click "upload file". The code to have the image appear in your post will be added to the post editor box.

Having an External Image (Photobucket for example) Appear in your Post

1. Place the url of the external image url in the post editing box.

2. Highlight the URL with your cursor and click on the Insert Image Icon icon above the post box. This will surround the URL with [img] [/img] tags. Your image should now appear in your post when you submit it.

Note: There is no need to try to create a "click to enlarge" link. The forum software will do it automagically.

Image Editing:

Images should be cropped closely to the stamp and resized to no more than 500 or so pixels on the longest side. A common mistake by new members is to try and upload photos fresh from the camera or scanner. These will, 99% of the time, be way too large to be accepted.

Irfanview is a very good free image editing tool that you can download for Windows. Download Irfanview Here
