Default How Do You Use "My Gallery"?

Hello,

I've read that I can post photos on this forum if I create a Gallery and load them onto my posts from there.

OK, so how do I do that, please?

Thanks,
PitStop Hal

I would like to know that too. I can go to My Account and then choose the User CP and then on the left side is an option to click on photos and albums. When I click on photos and albums it will go there and let me create and name albums and upload photos, but I don't see anything on uploading photos to the Gallery. So I have photos sitting in albums there, but nothing that tells me how to put them in the Gallery. But if I can ever get them into the Gallery then I would also like to know how to put them in my posts.

Default Your Album is the Gallery for Members.



Not sure what else you are asking but the Album you have images in is your Gallery.

You cannot post in the SCI Gallery.

Actually neither can I right now as it is broken, but it was an admin only Gallery.

Thanks Alan! I have been on here a few years and never even thought about doing that. (DOH) I have been shrinking files and posting the jpgs directly. (hangs head in shame)





Too Cool!!! Now to see if I can make one of these in 1:32.

OK, Alan...here's my setup:

I have over 200 thumbnail pics on my Computer. None of them are in Folders or Albums. They're just a big page-filling matrix of individual thumbnail images, and among them are a few images I would like to post on this Forum.

How do I do it, Alan? Step-by-step, please.

Thanks,
PitStop

Default OK lets see if we can work through this together.

Posting images from your Computer to your Gallery on SCI.

First click on the My gallery button which you can find by clicking on your user name when logged in.

If you are not sure where this is see your Control Panel shown in the address bar as CP http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...ums/usercp.php

In the left side column see your Pictures and Albums in the Networking section look for this image. Along side it will say Pictures & Albums.

Click on this link and your Album will open up.
You can also get tho this place by clicking on your My Gallery button below your name in any post you have made.

Once you get there you will see Pitstop's Albums.

In the middle you will see Click here to add an Album and start uploading pictures.

Click that.

Then you will see a screen with Title add a title.

Then a box with description add one.

Then scrolling down you will see Album type.

Click on Public if you want others to see your album.

Then click on submit.

You now have an Album.

Now click on Click here to upload pictures.

Then you will see Choose File.

Click on that and the program will open up images on your Computer.

Choose an image, then scroll down to the bottom of the window and click on Upload Pictures.

You now have an image in your album.

Default The Gallery button next to your name.

To get to the album please click the Gallery button next to your name in a post.

You do have an Album on SCI you just have to put images into it from your PC.

Or call Alan he can help, he helped me. I followed these instructions and was able to create an Album in my SCI Gallery and put images into it.

Alans number is 1-253-255-1807

Are you clicking on "My Gallery" on one of your posts? I'm using my account as an example.


If so, do you have an "Add Album" option?

Here's my attempt at an illustrated version of Alan's great tutorial. Probably been done here a billion times, so let's call this #1,000,000,001.

1. Go to your name in the left corner of any reply you've made in this thread. Click on "My Gallery":


________



2. It will say you have no Album, so you have to MAKE ONE. On the left side just below that message is a link saying "Add Album". You can see it partially obscured by the SCI watermark below, on the bottom left of the image:



________




3. Once you do that you can give a title to your album. Once you have done that, the next window will be "Upload Pictures", which on the left side looks kinda like this:



This is what it looks like in the middle of the page:


________




5. So, I clicked on it and uploaded an image from my computer:


...and the next window was this:



________




6. This step is optional, and involves giving your photo a caption. I changed mine for this example:


________




7. Save changes to #6 and the next screen shows the photo sitting in the new album:


________




8. Click on that an up comes a larger version of the pic with a few options marked below it:


Highlight and Copy the option marked "Picture URL"

________





9. Go to a post and, just after your "Post Quick Reply" option comes the "Go Advanced" option. CLICK THAT.


________




10. That will open up the larger, helpful version of the reply window. In that you'll find a row of clickable modifications: font stuff, etc. Find the button that looks like this:


That's the "Insert Image" button, which is 14th from the left on the bar.
________




11. Click that and it will bring up a window asking for the url of your pic. You copied it in Step 8, so now you should be able to paste it. Do that. Paste the url into the window and click okay. The next window to come up should look something like this:



________




12. Click "Submit Reply" and it should post.

End Result:



________

If you follow all of these steps you should be able to post just about anything under the file limit. If something doesn't work, pay careful attention and try the step again. If you get stuck on a particular step and can't get through it, please reply and be specific on which step you are stuck.

Let's try this one on for size.





I think I was thinking of the SCI Gallery, not the my Pictures and Albums part. Now it all makes more sense to me.

I've linked from My Pictures before, so I thought the conversation was about using the SCI Gallery. However, I do have another question. What about videos? Can one put videos in the My Albums area and then link to those, or is there something else that you do to post videos?
