Posting Media From Big Brother

Recommended Posts

This forum is for posting screen captures and pics from the Big Brother House live feeds.

An easy, fast tool for grabbing a single screen capture is IrfanView, a great, free graphics program that will let you capture an image, crop it, adjust the brightness and other properties. It's great for making avatars too. Download it from: http://www.irfanview.com/ and you might as well download the plug-ins for added enjoyment.

You can post screen captures in the Big Brother Pictures Forum. Once you have your pictures saved to your hard drive, you have to upload them to someplace on the web, and then you can paste the links, which will show the images in a message. Once you have uploaded them, you can paste them in a message body by placing the URL between IMAGE tags as follows:



    First the image has to be saved on your computer.
  • Once you have it saved, you go to the Image Shack page. (I use Image Shack or Photo Bucket).
  • Please Note - When you name the picture to your computer, make sure it isn't a long file name. It can get confusing when picking up the codes from Image Shack to add to your post.
  • Where it has the browse.gif icon at Image Shack, click it and it gives you a CHOOSE FILE box.
    (Looks something like the below box)
  • Once you have found and highlighted the Image you want from your computer, click the OPEN button.
  • You should then see that there is a file name in the box next to the browse.gif button at Image Shack.
  • Click on the HOST IT button.
  • It may take a little time to load the image.
  • When that's done you scroll down to the bottom of the page and copy the URL from Direct link to image.
  • Now go to your post.
  • Right click your mouse and click paste and your code should appear.
  • Highlight that code and click the Img button at the top of your post.
  • The image brackets will appear on either side of the URL you have just pasted.
  • You're almost done, at the bottom on your post, click Preview.jpg and your pictures should appear.
  • If your picture appears, hit submit.jpg.

Below is an example before you hit submit:



After hitting submit you should end up with:


This is idiotproof. Happy Posting and you'll get the hang of it.
