Uploading Images   Posting Videos   Posting Links

Important Note: It is recommended that images be uploaded here. This ensures that the topic stays relevant. Privately hosted images will disappear from the forum if the remote image is deleted, the account is deactivated, or the host shuts down.

Uploading Images and Image Preparation

Requirements for Uploading Images to the Forum

1. Must be in .gif or .jpg format.

2. Must be under 300K in size. Use our Free Image Optimizer if your image is too large.

3. File names must be unique or you will overwrite the previous image.

Images should be cropped closely to the coin and resized to no more than 800 or so pixels on the longest side.
Please, this is very important.

A common mistake by new members is to try and upload photos fresh from the camera or scanner. These will, 99% of the time, be way too large to be accepted.

Uploading an Image to a Post

1. You must either be posting from the new topic or reply to topic links. You cannot upload images on a quick reply.

2. While looking at the post box, you will see a green camera icon below the area where you type in your post. It looks like this Camera Icon . Click on that icon and a window should pop up that looks like this...

Image Upload Pop Up

If you don't see this box, check that your pop-up blocker is not blocking it or it's hiding behind another window. There are several instances on the forum that use legitimate pop-ups, so you may want to mark Coin Community as "safe". You will not get any advertising pop-ups from Coin Community.

3. Click on the "browse" button and navigate to the image you want to upload, then click "upload file". The code to have the image appear in your post will be added to the post editor box.

4. Click on either Upload another file or Close this window.

Posting Videos

As of right now, only YouTube video is supported.

1. Place the URL of the YouTube video in the post editing box.

2. Highlight the URL with your cursor and click on the icon above the post box. This will surround the URL with [youtube] [/youtube] tags. Of course, you can manually type the tags if you prefer. Your video should now appear in your post when you submit it.

Note: If for some reason the video does not appear properly, take a look at the YouTube URL. The only thing required after the ? is the v=xxxxxxxxxxx (xxxxxxxxxxx will be random characters), remove everything else and try again. If by some slim chance it still doesn't work, post it anyway and hit the Report this Post to the Staff link in the post and let us know.
