    Default Posting pictures directly into the forum.

    OK guys, its taken us a while to get this started but you can now upload a picture directly onto the SFF server and display it in your post without the need to use the third party hosts such as Photobucket, Imageshack etc.

    The software we have installed will automatically resize your picture to the correct 800x600 format for the forum. A typical 4MB image will take around 1 minute to upload, if you have resized the images yourself it will be much faster but either way it brings the forum nearer to the likes of Facebook for ease of picture sharing.

    We will continue to look at developing this option to hopefully encourage members to post more pictures and to make it easier for those who already do. Because this is a first launch there may be issues, I have had some members test it prior to launch but if you have any questions or find any problems please use this thread to bring them to our attention.

    Here is a video to show you how to do it.

    Without having tested it yet ...

    You say 800x600 - so obviously smaller will be accepted.

    What if I want to post a 600x800 image? Will the 800 dimension be checked against the 600 standard and deemed too large forcing me to resize down to 450x600 with loss of definition? This problem occurs on some other forums but not all.

    If you do not see the paperclip then your settings may need updated.
    Click Settings up top beside your name, then click General Settings down the left and under Miscellaneous options ensure Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing is enabled.

    Here is an example 600 * 800. It will resize the 800 to maximum 600 and adjust the 600 in proportion.
