I took the liberty of updating the OSW Gallery Tutorial. With a new edition of vBulletin comes, apparently, a new version of PhotoPost PHP.
Uploading a Single Image to the Gallery
So, you've got an image you want to upload to the OSW gallery, but you can't figure it out? Never fear, the OSW Gallery Tutorial is here.
Here, I've chosen my image, and resized it. See the Old Tutorial for how to resize pictures.
This is the forum index we all know and love.
You can access the gallery by using the drop-down menu in the upper right-hand corner. Move your mouse over "GALLERY", and select "New Gallery".
This is what you should see on your screen. (The layout is actually reversed now.)
Select "Upload Photos" in the upper right corner.
This is what you should see on your screen.
First, select the drop down menu below your username. This allows you to choose which category your images are filed under.
Check to see that the category you selected is the correct one. Now, next to the first line for photos, select "Browse".
This window will appear; it might look slightly different depending on what operating system you have on your computer and your personal settings. Select the image you would like to upload (1), check to see it is the correct image (2), and click on "Open". (The Tutorial for Multiple Uploads picks up from here; SEE BELOW)
Now that you've selected your image, checking to see if the correct filepath is displayed (1), you can enter a title for the image (2), and a description (3).
Click on the button that says "Upload/Submit" when ready.
Since I've uploaded only one image, I'm immediately taken to a page featuring the image itself, plus the title and caption I entered.
Below the caption, there is a box containing the text needed to post the image. Highlight the text inside and copy it by pressing "Ctrl + C" on your keyboard or right-clicking and selecting "Copy" (Macs use "Apple + C", I believe.). Alternatively, you can simply click on the "copy to clipboard" button (2) to copy the text for you.
Now, make your post. To paste the code into the message window, press "Ctrl + V" on your keyboard or right click and select "Paste" (I have no idea what Macs use- I'd assume it's "Apple + V"). I've circled the code in red as it will appear if you've done this correctly.
Now, don't rush and hit "Submit New Thread". Select the button next to it, "Preview Post", to see a preview of what your post will look like.
This is what you should see on your screen when you preview the post. Check to see if everything appears correctly. If it does...
...click on the "Submit Message" button. If something is wrong, scroll down to the message window and fix the error.
Finally, if everything's been done correctly, you should see your post displayed like so. To view the post in the above image in your broswer, click here.
Hopefully, this helped you in being able to post images on OSW. Good luck and happy posting.
