I personally recommend uploading your images directly to LumberJocks so that you don’t have to worry about 3rd party hosting companies suddenly blocking access to your images.

Step 1
Click the img button.

Step 2
Click the “Choose File” button.

Step 3
Browse your computer for the image you want to add. Click on it then select “open”.

Step 4
Click “Insert this image”. The code for the image will be added to your post.

Step 5
Preview your post for typos and to be sure your image displays the way you want.

You are now ready to post your entry.

I recommend saving your original images on your computer so you always have a backup.

Since I am not “cloud friendly”i load everything from my phone. Photobucket never worked well for me.

Looks like a simple / good way to do it!

Thank you!

Sure would make sense to update the Writing Guide: Embedding Pictures page to match this suggestion.

http://lumberjocks.com/help/writing/embedding-pictures

Creating a problem in the Guide and posting a workaround elsewhere doesn’t make a lot of sense. Simply stop suggesting photobucket in the Guide.

That’s how I do it.

I just make sure to “resize” my images to be uploaded….
I edit my images to 700 x XX (pixels) in a photo editor.
LJs doesn’t like large image files.

Cricket,
What maximum size files are recommended???

I have sent a request to update the page, but there is more work involved in making those updates on the older outdated pages than you might imagine. That is why I created this tutorial for now.

I honestly don’t know the point when an image becomes too large. I do know in some cases larger images will time out for some people based on their internet connection.

Thanks Cricket. One question: Could it be made possible to upload more than one photo at a time? When I post for example 30 picture’s for a blog contribution I have to do 30 times what you have mentioned above.

Unfortunately, the system only lets you upload pictures one by one.

Cricket, what was the Size of this picture you just displayed AS IT WAS on your computer when you uploaded it?
... sometimes, programs / sites will reduce the size to meet THEIR requirements (down to a Max size).

BTW, that IS a COOL picture! :)

Thank you.
