Title: Writing a trip report? Here's how to add pictures.
Post by: Something Fishy on October 25, 2014, 11:11:43 PM
Updated 7/10/17:
- Sizes now work differently
- Photobucket no longer works as a host
- Flickr screenshots are updated to the current interface
- The process of embedding a private photo is now (somewhat) simplified



I can't even count the amount of times I've answered this question in one form or another, both on the forums and by PM. I figured I'll write up some detailed instructions and hope people will find this useful.

This tutorial has five sections:

Note that nothing in this post will show up properly in Tapatalk; use a regular browser to follow along.

Understanding the basics:

Hosting: The pictures have to live somewhere. They are not stored on DDF; the forum system follows a couple of codes which tells it where the picture is stored, and it "pulls" the picture from there and displays it in your post. What this means is that for any picture to be displayed on DDF it first has to be uploaded to an image hosting service.

There are many hosting services out there, including ImageShack (https://imageshack.com/), tinypic (http://tinypic.com/), and imgur (http://imgur.com/). All work on the same principle: you upload your pictures, the site provides the necessary code and links, and will display your picture when called upon to do so by DDF.

My personal host of preference is Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/), for a multitude of reasons:

The examples we'll examine below will all be from Flickr, but the steps generally apply to all other hosting sites.

BBCode: The forum runs on something called BBCode (BBC for short). Without this code all that could be displayed is plain text; adding BBC tags however will let you format your post in many different ways. You do not have to know any coding to use this; generally you could click on one of the icons while posting and the code will automatically be entered for you. However, understanding how the codes in question work, what each part means, and so on are all very useful to know and will be explained here.

Once your pictures are online on a hosting site, you will use the [img] tag to tell the forum where your picture is stored, what size to display it at, and what happens if the picture is clicked on.

Adding pictures:

Let's have a look at the different options and controls, and how they would show up on the forum.

Step 1: Uploaded your pictures. Sign in or create an account on your hosting site of choice, and follow the prompts to upload your pictures. 

Step 2: From your host, navigate to the picture in question and choose to "share", "get link", or whatever that particular website calls it. On Flickr this is designated by an arrow on the lower right-hand corner of the image:

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5600/15007914854_891d66a06f.jpg)

Step 3: There may be many different sharing options. Here the choices are Share, Embed, Email, and BBCode. Click on BBCode (top box), and the correct code will be generated (bottom box):

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5615/15442045109_3546d08ee9_b.jpg)

Note that BBC can also be referred to as "Forum" or "Forum Code" on different sites.

This will generate the required [img] code needed, but don't copy and paste just yet.

Step 4: Choose a size; I find that Large 1024 seems to work best - it displays at a nice size in the thread, while not slowing everything down:

(https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5605/15628683335_f68aa0d93a_b.jpg)

If the size you picked is too large, DDF will automatically resize it to fit the width of the page. That means that you're getting basically the same view as Large 1024, but it will run slowly due to all the resizing happening. And if you choose a smaller size, your picture will not be resized - it'll just show up smaller.

For comparison, here's what the picture would look appear like in Large 1024, Small 240, and Original, in that order:

Haleakala Sunrise (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i) by Morris Hersko (https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/), on Flickr

Haleakala Sunrise (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i) by Morris Hersko (https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/), on Flickr

Haleakala Sunrise (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i) by Morris Hersko (https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/), on Flickr

Note that the size options you get will vary slightly depending on the particular picture in question; however it'll be close enough to the options here.

Step 5: Copy and paste. Once you've chosen a size, copy and paste the resulting code into your post. While editing it'll look like so...

...and display like so once previewed or posted:

Haleakala Sunrise (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i) by Morris Hersko (https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/), on Flickr

Let's take a detailed look at what we have, and how it happened:

How did all this happen, and how could we manipulate the code to change which of these actually happen?

Let's break the code down piece by piece:


[url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i][img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i]Haleakala Sunrise[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/]Morris Hersko[/url], on Flickr


Red is the most important part - the [img] and [/img] tags notify the system that a picture should be inserted here, while the URL in between tells the system where to find said picture. This is static: all it does is show the picture - no links, credits, etc. If this is what you want, keep only this part of the code and erase the rest (see example 1 below).

Green is a [url] tag. This is what makes the picture clickable. Since this tag surrounds the [img] tag, it means that the entire picture is clickable, not text, as is typical. This is how I personally post my pictures, since I'm not a fan of the caption and credit parts. By only using the red and green parts of the code, it shows the picture only, but clickable. See example 2 below.

Blue Is the caption; the [url] tag makes the "Haleakala Sunrise" clickable.

Purple is the link and text to my profile page. You could eliminate either the profile link or the caption by deleting the applicable parts of the code (personally I delete both, like I said above). See example 3 below where I kept the caption but got rid of my profile link.

Brown is pure text and is there to turn the caption into a coherent sentence.


Example 1 - Static, non-clickable picture. The code used shown first, then the result:


[img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg[/img]


(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg)


Example 2 - my personal preference. Clickable picture, no caption:


[url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i][img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg[/img][/url]


(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i)

Example 3 - As above, but with the caption and no profile link:


[url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i][img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg[/img][/url][url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i]Haleakala Sunrise[/url]


(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg) (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i)
Haleakala Sunrise (https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i)


Sharing private pictures:

The above steps only works if the picture is public. What if you want them private, but viewable (and clickable) only through DDF? For this we use something Flickr calls a Guest Pass. It generates a special link for your private photos, and only someone with that link (and in this case, DDF) could view the picture.

This adds two more steps to the process:

Step 6: After step 5 above, jump back to Flickr's sharing menu, and choose Share. A special link will be generated:

(https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3937/15629042195_b496c4528b_z.jpg)

Step 7:Replace the red part of the original code below with the new link, and everything will work as if it was a public photo:


[url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i][img]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3928/15221252347_97db0ca75a_b.jpg[/img][url=https://flic.kr/p/pc3U2i]Haleakala Sunrise[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/people/39027193@N05/]Morris Hersko[/url], on Flickr


Flickr has a couple of options for the Guest Passes, such as setting expiration dates. See this (https://help.yahoo.com/kb/flickr/create-temporary-guest-passes-flickr-sln13039.html?impressions=true) page for more info.

Additional methods:

DDF hosted: The forum actually does have a built-in image hosting feature, but that is only for extremely small file sizes (meaning the pictures will be very low quality). Additionally, the pictures only show up at the bottom of the post, and as thumbnails only. All this means that it's is generally not a good option for trip reports. To use this feature, click the "Attachments and other options" link below the text field.

Tapatalk hosted: If you have your pictures on your phone you could click on the camera icon to upload a picture. This works in a similar way to Flickr - the picture will be uploaded to Tapatalk's servers, and it will automatically generate the code and insert into your post. The disadvantage of this method is that you have no control on the size of the picture - it will be displayed like the Original sample above.

Other websites: If the picture is hosted on any other website, you could copy the image link (generally this will not be the page link) and paste the address between [img] and [/img] tags. As with Tapatalk, you will have no control on the size of the image.

A little advice, if you don't wanna post pics that have you or family members in them make sure to take a 2nd set of pics without yourself in them. Big spots or boxes covering over part of the photo takes away from the beauty of the photo. 2cents

Thanks! I've been meaning to ask you (or maybe even not be lazy and actually figure it out myself  :) ) how to make the link on private photos work.

For an example of what happens when you don't do steps 6-8 above on a private photo, see here (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=9457.msg916281#msg916281)

Maybe add instructions for blurring out parts of photos as well.

The method I use for blurring is probably too complicated and convoluted for most people here (not to mention lack of Photoshop). 99% of the time covering faces with a simple shape would do the trick.

Here's what I do:

I use actions to do most of the steps automatically. If there's enough interest here I'll see if I could create a Droplet and post a link.

These are GIFs:

Premier to edit and trim the video and then Photoshop to create the GIF. Import -> Video frames to layers -> resize to 600px and edit as needed. Then Save for web -> Dither -> Diffuse -> choose either 128 or 256 colors -> Export. Upload to Photobucket since Flickr doesn't handle GIFs properly.

It still doesn't compare to uploading to YouTube, as you're very limited with the length (15-20 seconds is really the max) and the quality is horrendous. But it does make for easier TR reading.

The share options are from the image page, but the upload page. The new site design looks a bit different that the screenshots in the tutorial, but the buttons and options remain pretty much the same.

It's right underneath the Twitter button.

Flickr changed their layout a but since this tutorial was written, so some options have moved around a bit.

You can always click on "preview" before posting.

See instructions again, basically cut most of the link.

I don't know what to say, other than something isn't right. Certain buttons aren't showing up for you for some reason...

I get the same pic, no bbcode option or link

ETA: I figured it out, you only get the bbcode option when you click share after you click on the picture

If I want to insert a static map (like from here (http://staticmapmaker.com/google/)) can I just copy the html code they generate and post it as an image (it worked fine as a preview) or is it better to save the image to Flickr and upload it from there?

Basically either would work, but doing it direct seems simpler.

I've anyways done a screenshot of Google Maps and uploaded that to Flickr, but this seems like a good alternative.

I have one image saved as code and I am not sure how to change the size and can no longer figure out how to save it as an image so I can use Flickr.

DDF uses BBCode, not HTML. I haven't looked too closely at that site, but you'd need either an IMG tag or an image file generated to be able to use it here.

Sure. You can also use Google's My Maps to build more complex maps.

And nope. I never understood why people would do that, the info is baked into the file anyway. Why slap something permanent and distracting on your photograph?

- Flickr screenshots are updated to the current interface

With the help of this...

 You can work around that by long-pressing on an image in the app, and tapping "share direct link" What's actually happening here is you are copying links from the "share" menu, which is sharing the entire album or gallery post - this confuses the forum's robots (the ones that actually fetch the image from Imgur) and breaks the bb-code chain.

For example, the share link will show https://imgur.com/a/PtK1TQT [Note the /a/ - this denotes an album link, not a direct link. BB-codes won't be able to pull from this page.] A direct link will show as https://imgur.com/IVp4nZn [Note the URL is entirely different and there is no /a/ or /gallery/ within. BB-codes can pull from this page.]

need to look into it next time, but can you change the size without effecting quality?
Have a look at the "how to post pictures" thread, or whatever it's called.

Lol you threw me off by quoteing my post from the other thread here. In the first post SF clearly tells you how to adjust the size, and quality shouldn't be effected.

He wrote about 1024683. The example he posted smaller than that seems to have been ruined.

Firstly, on Tapa it may not appear as it does on desktop. Secondly, you don't have to drop all the way to 240...

I looked on desktop, the quality there isn't good.
And if the quality dropped significantly when making it 240, I'd assume somewhere in middle it'll drop as well, perhaps not as much but something.

Flickr is free for the first 1,000 photos. New accounts after that.

Interesting but it looks like you have to do it pic by pic, like I had to manually delete 800 pics by seeing which ones never made it into a TR. :'(

Not sure what you mean by that. I'm assuming you mean adding a link? Just link the TR to the wiki.

If you're not sure how you can ask something fishy to do it for you.

You have to go to the master thread of trip reports. The open the wiki, on the top left there's a link that says "edit wiki".

Find the location that you want to add to (if your trip report is in a new location not listed it's a different process) in the editor (it will take a few minutes to get used to, have a separate tab open to compare what the wiki looks like to the code).

Then just add in next to the other similar formatted links
Code: [Select]
[url=your trip reports link goes here]username goes here[/url],
