Uploading images

There are a couple of ways to upload images here.

Upload it as your photo or image - Go to your house and press Upload a new (or delete current) photo. This is good for images that you want there, but you can also use the images on wiki-pages, messages and so on (See img). The drawback is that the image will be resized to a maximum of 500 pixels wide. If you use the image on a wiki-page later, it's a good idea to write what it is in () behind it. Like this
<img:img/photo/1_1175415489.jpg>(Photo of Hedda)
Note that there is no space before the ()! This will make the image's file-name much nicer (unless there is already a file with exactly that name on Elfpack).

Upload a folder of images - Go to your house and press "upload a folder of images" on top. There you can both upload a single photo or an entire archive of photos. The photo(s) will be placed on a new wiki-page that you decide the name of. The only problem is that huge archives often fail to be uploaded. Just try again if this happen! This is best way to upload many photos or a photo that you don't want resized.

Upload art - Go to your house and press "Upload art" on top. This is the best option if you have a big interesting image that you want comments on. The "Upload a folder of images" works too, but this button will list the image on one of your gallery-pages.

Upload to a wiki-page - People can be given the right to upload images directly to wiki-pages. It might be simpler than "Uploading a folder of images" if you want to extend a wiki-page with a photo, but otherwise it has no benefit over that method. Ask the council if you need this function!

2006-10-25 [DeeJay™]: hummm . . do you wanna up-load them for your house? if you do you need to:
1) right click the uploaded image
2) then left click 'properties'
3) after that you need to copy the long address at the top (eg
4) paste the address in-between <img:   +  > (eg <>
and it should work (if you can understand that. lol)

2006-10-25 [ph3ar]: im using a mac sooooo. tis really gay ,i think i said that already, so therefore thers only 1 click no left or right

2006-10-25 [ph3ar]: and i can only upload them from this computer

2006-10-25 [DeeJay™]: haha! well ive no idea. it help if there was a useful wiki around about it! lmao

2006-10-27 [Kire]:

2006-11-02 [__Gone__]: it didnt work...

2006-11-02 [ph3ar]: ahhhh the stupid comps.

2006-11-05 [truelover08]: what is up with this? i was trying to upload a pic??

2006-11-10 [Hedda]: The idiot [Paul !] messed up this wiki-page and I had forgotten to put it on watch. Now there are some useful information here again ;)

2006-12-19 [------]: how the fuck do u get other images on ur description profile and stuff cause it wont work for me and it sux??

2006-12-20 [Hedda]: Upload the image somewhere. Like going to your house and press "upload a folder of images".

Then see capturing images for how making the code in your presentation.

2007-01-14 [fieldhockey bitch]: [i am so lost right now]

2007-02-16 [~aurora~]: me to

2007-02-23 [zoloftzantac]: What are you lost about? I can help explain it more if you tell me where you are getting stuck

2007-07-01 [FEARS]: i am so lost right now

2007-10-14 [trouble_293]: how do i delete a pic?

2007-10-14 [Hedda]: Depends on what you mean. Where do you want to delete it from?

If you don't want an image in your house, just upload another image or fill out nothing in the upload form and submit that.

2008-01-12 [Owenbmxman]: help please ive been an idiot and somehow blocked myself from my wiki! is it possible for it to be deleted so i can just start again?

2008-01-13 [Hedda]: [Owenbmxman]: You can't block anyone from a wiki-page. If you explain what exactly you're doing where, what happens and maybe why you think it's wrong, then I can surely help you, or fix the problem.

2008-01-13 [Owenbmxman]: when i try to look at my wiki-page it comes up with the message 'access denied to this wiki-page' although i was playing with forums and stuff and i think i kicked myself out, so now i cant view my wiki-page =[

2008-01-13 [Hedda]: You missed the "where"-part... I guess you mean random pics of me and my stuff. I've made it freely editable now, so you can create a new forum for it, if you want. Don't kick yourself out again
