      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

How do we add photos to an article?

Recommended Posts

1)  I gather there is no longer a Gallery.  I'm guessing we have to use a photo-hosting site like photobucket.com or something.  What are people doing to get photos onto cc.com?

2)  I use Google Drive for some things.  Does anyone know if it is possible, in a post, to link to photos stored in there?  If so, can you point me to, or post, some sample code?

I have some trip reports for new routes, with photos, that I'd like to post soon.  Any help on posting photos will be appreciated.  Thanks,

Bill Enger

Hi @Otto good to have you looking for this info!  You'll notice that you can choose files from the bottom of a post, which is pretty easy if they are saved locally.  If they aren't you can post a link to the photo and I think it will work, but for the long term it really is better if you can upload to the site (I export from Lightroom at lower res and upload directly to cc.com).

But, to show that it works from Google Photos, here's this from my account (you have to click on photo then right click and copy image location):

I'm not sure that it works from Google Drive, but I hope it is similar?

Thanks, JasonG.  I would like to do this, but I can't find a menu item or button to upload to cc.com.  Can you please describe where it is?  I use the Chrome browser if that matters.  There used to be a Main menu item for "Gallery" but no more.  Where to start?

OK so I got the local photo upload figured out.  At first, it didn't seem like making an "attachment" was what I wanted, but now I do.  Thank you!

I haven't had any success linking to photos on Drive.  Does anyone have the specifics on doing this?  Thanks again,

Bill

@Otto- I tried to link to a photo on G-drive and it doesn't seem to work like Google Photos. 

Still, it isn't hard to save from G-Drive locally and then upload to the site.  In the long term that really is better than a link which can break.  Old TRs are littered with them....

Thanks for working thru this!
