In the tutorial:
Topic: Adding images to Posting & Profiles
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,130922.0.html
you can learn how to resize and crop images, and add the images to your postings.

If you are having problems, you can post your practice attempts here,
and other RootsChatters will help you with your problems :)

Good luck,
Bob

Hi Scoucerlad,

this topic is just for practicing :)

If you are looking for more information about these photos, then a topic on another board would be better.

I have tried a few times to attach a photo but keep getting the following message.
"Already an attachment with the same filename as one you tried to upload.  Rename and try again".   
I have changed the filename but still get the same message.  What am I doing wrong!!!   I am getting frustrated.

Hi Nabla,

How exotic is the name of your file? Bear in mind that it must be something that noone has ever used on RC. If it's something like GrandfatherSmith, try renaming it to Nabla2GrandfatherSmith :)

Hi Tati,
I was just trying out the extract for size as new to this but thanks for your reply.  I have posted it on the Lancs page as hoping someone could decipher the Lancashire birthplace on the top line.  It has been transcribed as Velpy Hill but I'm not so sure.

Sorry! There is already an attachment with the same filename as the one you tried to upload. Please rename the file and try again.

An Error Has Occurred!
Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow.

You may want to post a question on this issue on the Technical Help section of RootsChat.

When renaming, try for something NO-ONE else is likely to have used to post a picture ... something like 'Great Granny' will have been used a dozen times !

If you put "aaaaa" or "@@@@@" in front of "Great Granny" you'll succeed !

Hi Harry, (and others),

there is an example for the img-tags here:
http://www.rootschat.com/help/posting.php#bbc_tags

Basically, they are usable for linking to internet images.
For adding images from the computer, they need to be "attached"

For those of you wanting to use animated gifs as avatars, first thing you need to know is size matters, the biggest that I have been able to put into place is 76 x 76 pixels 26765 bytes, I have tried using the original size but it stops the animation so I use this on-line resizer,

The restriction is to prevent people who haven't read the Rootschat rules properly and don't realise they mustn't post copyright material to the website - which is more likely to happen on look-up boards.  It isn't an infallible barrier but we feel it helps those who might accidentally transgress.

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Post by: drjdrjdrjdrjdrj on Wednesday 08 September 10 20:45 BST (UK)
But surely if they find they can't post in that particular forum they'll just upload to somewhere like Photobucket and link to there as I did.

If you really want to stop people posting copyright material you'll have to prevent them linking to images...
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: Arranroots on Wednesday 08 September 10 20:51 BST (UK)
As I say, the solution isn't infallible.  It is meant as an elegant reminder which gives people pause for thought rather than an obstacle to be surmounted by the stubbornly persistent!

Post by: drjdrjdrjdrjdrj on Wednesday 08 September 10 21:00 BST (UK)
OK - I don't want to start an argument here but it's hardly an "elegant reminder" - it looks much more like broken software when encountered for the first time. If it was "elegant" it wouldn't say "Attach a photograph or image..."

Hello Bob,

I managed to attach it on the practice page, but when I tried over and over again on my posting, I just kept getting an error message, so I gave up.

It was something along the lines of:

There is already an attachment with the same filename as the one you tried to upload. Please rename the file and try again. ...

I renamed it, but I still got the same message.

We can't post images on the county lookup requests boards. 
This is to discourage people from posting certificates and census images.

Hi

No, I tried again but got -

Is this because I'm using a MAC?

Are there different instructions for MAC's?

Or isn't it possible?

Thanks

It shouldn't be any different for a MAC.

Are you sure you are trying to attach a valid file and that the allowed size size hasn't been exceeded ??
(Sometimes the error messages don't "fit" the problem)

Hi Bob

Well it was in tif but I've rescanned to jpeg & is estimated as 11 MB

Just didn't notice!

It's not a large photo but my scanner wanted to do it in a 200 resolution, but I changed it to 300, as requested! As I would just like crease marks removed would 200 be good enough?

If not, would cropping it help?

Thanks

Post by: Berlin-Bob on Sunday 18 September 11 19:34 BST (UK)
Depends what you want to post it for.  In general we don't allow certificates, census images or other official documents to be posted in full, but it's OK to post a section of it, for help with deciphering bits of it, so cropping would help there.

Attachment.

But how do I display it inline, below this line

but above this one?

OK, if I let the attachment display, and then cut and paste the URL as an IMG that works.

So how do I suppress the attachment from displaying at the bottom

Ahah - unattach doesn't delete the image, so the link still works, but DOES stop it being displayed.

Bingo - perfect result.

But is it REALLY meant to be this tricky?

Why do I get this error when trying to post a topic with an attached image file:

An Error Has Occurred!
Sorry! There is already an attachment with the same filename as the one you tried to upload. Please rename the file and try again.

This error is confusing, as the distinction between posting and uploading is not clear.  Renaming the file doesn't help either.  It's a .jpg file 34k in size.  Is the error message trying to imply that attachments have to be named uniquely from all other attachments ever posted?
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: sarah on Thursday 27 March 14 19:18 GMT (UK)

Correct Dale, if you upload a photograph called "janebrown.jpeg" and there is another photograph already uploaded by another member called Janebrown.jpeg you will get the error message. Don't preview your posting as this also can cause a problem as RootsChat thinks it is two images, if you make a mistake this can be edited.

Regards

Sarah :)
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: DaleB on Thursday 27 March 14 19:37 GMT (UK)
OK, thank you.  The server could be made to handle this, for example, by appending a time stamp, username, and index number to each attachment as it comes in.  At the very least, I suggest that the error message be changed to tell users to name their attachments this way.  As attachment files build up on the server, users are going to have a harder and harder time guessing at unique filenames without being able to see the existing ones.

Dale
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: trystan on Thursday 27 March 14 19:42 GMT (UK)
Rewriting the filename of every attempted file upload also has it's own overhead on the server, so that's why we don't do that.

The error message does say "Please rename the file and try again." I suppose it could be main clearer, though.

How do I delete photos?
When I press preview, no picture shows.

So I post them to see what the photos look like.

Well done Kelrich, Don't forget that you will need to slightly change the name of your filename when you choose to post it as all images have to have unique file names ;)

Your image is 1871pixels wide, if you can make it about 800 pixels it should fit better.

What I don't understand is how I can post a picture here. But if I try and do the same on one of my own topics, when I click on the down arrow, at the bottom of the message, no box comes up with the "Browse" box to the right of the line.
All that comes up is the three tick boxes.

Hi RobinRedBreast,

If you can let me know where you topic is that you wish to attach images I can move it from the "Lookup section" to the county section for you.

Hello There,

Thanks very much, but it's alright now. That topic has been completed now. I just wasn't aware that you could not post images in "Look Up" section.

Hi Sarah
I was replying to an item on The Common Room. It allowed me to select an attachment but when I clicked on "Post" nothing happened so I thought there might be something wrong with the attachment. Are attachments not allowed in The Common Room?
Jim
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: sarah on Saturday 28 March 20 10:25 GMT (UK)
yes Jim, you will need to re-name the image file that you have already posted because each image has to have a unique filename I have just removed the image to make it easier for you ;)

Try again
Title: Re: Adding images to Posting & Profiles - Practice Post
Post by: Latchfordian on Saturday 28 March 20 10:36 GMT (UK)
Thanks for confirming that Sarah. I won't in fact try again as that particular thread has now finished and it would only confuse people. It must have just been a hiccough in the system. As long as I know for the future that attachments can be used on The Common Room, which seemed to be the most appropriate board for my general family history query. Thanks again for your help.
