Uploading photographs directly to Team-BHP
The facility of uploading pictures directly to Team-BHP has now been enabled. Henceforth, please do not use imageshack or any other external photo hosting solutions. Attachments have been enabled for all membership levels, only to increase the level of convenience to BHPians.
*NOTE* : Please be sure to "submit" your post within 30 minutes of uploading attachments / pictures. Else, your attachments will expire. If you need more time to prepare your content, preview the post ("go advanced" -> "preview post") every <30 minutes to prevent your attachments from expiring.
How do you load pictures?
Step One : Click on the "Manage Attachments" button when creating a new thread. To include attachments in a reply to an existing thread, simply click on the "Go Advanced" button under Quick reply, to access the "Manage Attachments" button.
Step Two : Choose the pictures you wish to upload from your computer. Then click the "Upload" button on the right side of the screen.
Step Three : Wait for the confirmation of a successful upload. Then, click the "Close this window" button.
Optional : If you want to include photographs within the text body, click on the attach icon and choose the picture you wish to insert (at that position in the post). If you don't choose a specific position, the pictures will be displayed at the end of the post.
NOTE: You will have to first click the "Go Advanced" button if you wish to do this on an already submitted post.

How to resize images:
Several BHPians have written in asking for a guide on resizing large pictures down to 3 MB (or less). Here are the simplest ways of going about it:
Option ONE : If you are running Windows XP, download the official Microsoft XP image resizer. Click here to view Sir Alec's excellent tutorial on using the resizer software, as well as rotating images easily.
OPTION TWO : Open the picture in Microsoft Paint (standard on your Windows OS), then press "Ctrl" & "W". Under "Stretch", enter 50% for the horizontal and vertical fields. Click Save.
OPTION THREE : Download third-party softwares such as the Fast Stone Photo Resizer.
