    Click on Add Reply at top of page, next to New Topic. When that page opens, type in your post message and at the bottom of the page there is an option to attach a file. Click on browse and locate your jpeg image on your hard drive, highlight it and click on Open. Thats it.

    Remember, images do not show up in Preview Mode.

    Unhappy

    How do I get my photo (head) on the mandolin player?

    Do I upload just my head or the entire photo?


    Thanks!

    You have to copy the photo (the mandolin player) onto your computer. If it is a windows based machine you can right click your mouse on the photo and choose "Save Picture As" and save the photo. Then open the photo(s) that you want to use in some photo editing software (Photoshop is common) and do your manipulations and save the photo to your computer and then follow the directions on posting the photo on the Cafe.

    Actually, it does work. What Scott doesn't mention is that you cannot preview a post with an image in it. If you try to preview it, it doesn't show the image and erases the information about where the image should come from, so when you post it, poof, no image.

    If you go without a safety net and just hit "quick post", it works fine.

    I have followed the directions (I think), resized, pressed the correct buttons etc.

    My image posts look like this:

    If you have a Mac running OSX, I've just written an Applescript application to resize pictures easily to post on the Cafe. The app can be found at my public file website.

    To run the app, just drop as many files as you want to resize on it. It will ask you for a dimension (in pixels). This is the dimension for the largest side of the image. The script will then create a folder on your Desktop called Cafe-TEMP and will copy the images there, resize them, and rename them Cafe1.xxx, Cafe2.xxx, etc.

    Some numbers to keep in mind:

    Classified images have these maximum numbers: height - 460 pixels, width - 410 pixels, maxsize - 120 kb.

    Message board - maxsize - 153.6 kb

    As long as you choose you longest size to match those for the classified numbers, you should have no problem. Then again, I didn't test this with every file type, so your milage may vary.

    Let's have a lesson in deleting a post. Any message that you post you can delete. You can also edit any message that you post. If you post a test picture then by all means feel free to delete your test picture as well. Take a look at the image below. You'll notice the Delete and the Edit buttons circled in red. You will only see those buttons on messages that you have posted.
