Hello Everyone

Let me introduce myself, my name is Lin and I have just retired so now doing what I want to do ie photography! I was given a Canon 550D from my partner as a retirement present and have been happily snapping away ever since! I'm fortunate to live in Devon with so many beautiful places to photograph. All I need to do now is learn the functions and I have a one day course lined up in January, can't wait! In the meantime I have posted a photo(at least I think I have!) and would love to receive some advise/criticism please.

Re: Hello Everyone

Welcome to Pixalo Lin

I can't see any pictures in your Personal Gallery or this thread, so it looks like you have not managed to post your picture.


There are Two ways to post an image in the Pixalo forums.

1) Host on Pixalo. Re-size to no more that 1024 pixels on the longest side (I usually go for 800 for landscape and 550/600 for portraits) and under 300kb file size. In the Gallery there is a banner with my photos/my albums/my favourites on the LHS and upload photos on the RHS.

Click on that link and in the next screen select where you want to upload to in the first drop-down and then use the browse buttons to navigate to where your images are on your computer.

If you are looking in the Macro Gallery (for instance) and hit the upload images link you will have this gallery automatically selected. Wherever you upload to, except into a private album or the Artistic nude gallery, a copy of the image will go into the 'recent photos' section of the main gallery too.

Once you have the image in a gallery, click on the thumbnail to get the full size image and underneath you will see two lines of code. Copy the bottom line and paste it into your text in your post. If you only want to post the thumbnail, copy and paste the top link.

Alternatively, if you are creating a post or replying in a thread, above the text entry box there is a row of icons. Clicking on the right hand icon will allow you to navigate to your image. Click on it when you have found it and the code for the full size image will be inserted into your text.

2) If you host images outside Pixalo, you can simply paste a link to the image in a post. There is an icon in the row above the text entry box that looks like an envelope with a mountain on it. Click on that and it will open a box where you can paste your image url. I don't know if doing this will add [IMG] tags for you as I don't host images outside of Pixalo, so have never used this, but if you want to display the image in Pixalo by using [IMG] tags, it must conform to the above size limits. Oversize images will have the [IMG] tags removed to leave just the link in the post.

If you only want to have the image in the gallery and do not want it in the forums, just follow step one.

There is a guide for using the Members Gallery here
