Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

OT how do you post pics

Lately I have been seeing more posts with larger pictures, and write up or descriptions of the cook between the pics. I really like that format. It is a more detailed post and pic scenario. Can it be done without any extra program or downloads? Can anyone enlighten me with how to do it. TIA.

    From my experience it is a little frowned upon to post the bigger pics 'inline' with you comments because it causes slower thread load times and forces people to see the full size pictures.

    Having said that I believe once you attach the picture you can click on it a select 'insert image' or something like that.

    Very few people use dialup internet service so there really isn't a need to post tiny pictures where people need a microscope to see what is being cooked. That is one of the main reasons I like this forum, the pictures with the great knowledge. My pictures actually take up less space than the person attaching the file to the server. People attaching giant pictures in forums are what used to be the reason pictures and forums did not always go together this method just has a link to it. It may take longer to load but I think has more information to be shown. 


    What I do is upload my pictures to photo bucket, they are making changes and it is a little different some people like it some people are having issues. You used to be able to set your photo size before uploading but now it does that automatically to 1024x768 so that will be the biggest picture it can post. You can go into editing it if you feel its too big or do it on your computer before you upload. 

    Once it is uploaded to Photobucket open the picture in your library and I use the Direct link once you click on it, it will turn yellow and copy it.

    Then I go back to the forum and click on the insert image button three over from the smiley faces and paste the link into that.

    Then you can write more information between pictures and post another one. 

    Lots of ways to do it, this is just my method. My posts will always have lots of pictures and if people think its too many they don't have to look at it. 

    Hope this helps.
