Charter and Useful Information

Considerations when posting Images on-thread.

Some considerations to note before posting images:

Links from Image Hosting sites

You can inadvertently reveal more information about yourself than you intend as the account holders name on a third-party image hosting site may be available to anyone following the link.
It's also possible that the entire catalogue of images hosted there could be accessed.
The account name used during its' set up may also be used to form part of the URL address of the image so you should consider using a pseudonym or username.

It's probably best, for your own privacy, to host images anonymously on a third-party site that allows it.
Examples of such sites would be TinyPic, Anony, PostImage, AnonImg and imagecross.

It is possible to have images attached to your posts ('Post Reply' button, not 'Quick Reply', and scroll down to 'Manage Attachments').
If you have a subscriber account you can create an album under your account ('Control Panel' >> 'Pictures & Albums') and link to them using the 'Picture URL' supplied or use the also supplied 'BB code' to insert them into the post.

Resizing images for display in thread:

Very large image files in threads can cause issues by 'breaking' browser windows or by consuming excessive bandwidth thus delaying page loading.
For everyone's sake, it's best to keep images to around 800 pixels on their longest side, and file size to 150-200 KB or so.

There are many on-line image resizing services which will make your images more suited for display in thread:

There's plenty of free software for doing it on your own computer too:

EXIF Date:

Be aware too, that a lot of digital cameras and most smartphones these days have GPS functionality built into them, and that details of the location at which the photo was taken can be included in the EXIF data of the image file.

If this is of concern to you, either switch off the GPS function of your camera/phone, or remove the data from the file before posting it publicly.
In Windows, you can see if this data is present by right-clicking on the image file, selecting 'Properties', and clicking the 'Details' tab.
If you wish to remove this data, follow the above steps, then click the 'Remove Properties and Personal Information' link, and follow the instructions from there.

Posting the same image on multiple sites:

Many Internet search tools facilitate 'image search', whereby you can input the URL of an image and the tool will search for that image throughout the Internet.
If you post the same image here AND elsewhere, it's possible for curious minds to link information from multiple sites and perhaps accumulate knowledge you'd prefer they didn't have; your username on other forums, for example, or even your real name and other personal data from social networking sites.
