Placing a crest onto postings COMPLETED
« on: Monday 20 March 06 21:21 GMT (UK) »
I have downloaded a crest from a website, saving it to My Pictures and am wondering if someone could advise me of the procedure for having it appear on my postings.
I had a look at the information given on the Beginners Page but not being very technical, I was unable to follow it.

Isles.

Hi Isles...

Haven't done it myself ... but I think this is how you do it..

When you are logged in :

At the top of the Screen - Click on Profile (to right of 'Search Rootschat' - piccy of babys face)

To the left of your screen - Click on 'Modify Profile'
Click on 'RootsChat Profile Information'

Now, on the right hand side of your screen,
Click on the circle next to ‘I will upload my own picture'
Click on 'browse'
Now put in the location of your file i.e. where you have saved your crest ... when you've done that ... click on ok....

You can also put some narrative underneath the crest if you want - simply by typing in the box alongside  ‘personal text in box below'

Hope this makes sense.... and hopefully it works for you ... as I haven't done it, I'm winging it a bit!!

Good luck .... Karen

Hi Karen,

    I'm grateful for your help but after selecting 'I will upload my own picture' and entering 'My Pictures' in the box, I cannot see the O.K. button ?  Sorry to be so dense !

Isles.

no Isles .. you are not being dense!

I haven't done it so ..am guessing what your options might be!! when you see the picture that you want (in my pictures) .. click on it ... then click on 'open' (i think) ..... does this work?

(I will try to do it myself now and see if its the correct thing to do).....

I can't get it to work either!!! Sorry!..

Think you have to click on second option .... i.e. that states family Crest .... trouble is, you seem to have to have the crest on a website already ....

Are you familiar with Photobucket ... ?  (this is a website that you can upload pictures to for free .. and also download pictures from .... if you have your crest on this site you could refer to it and this would work for sure)....

Sorry to be so long in replying.  My cousin phoned me and had quite a lot to say !
I'll certainly try your suggestion regarding Photobucket.
Many thanks for your help.

Isles.

oh sorry Isles .... I just looked at another posting on the Technical board and someone was having trouble uploading today ... maybe there is a problem?.. hopefully, someone else will log on soon and help you

Well, I have to go now, but please let me know how you got on with your crest .....

And if you are still not sorted by the time I log on tomorrow, I will try to do it ...

Best of luck!! Karen

Hello Isles ... I just uploaded a picture from photobucket.com to test out (url) .. and it worked (I've since deleted it !) ....

I have tried to upload from my c drive but its not working for me ... I'm thinking maybe my file was too big ...... maybe the file has to be below 500kb - what size is your file?..

kind regards, Karen
