Costa Living Forum
This forum was started to help people who want to move to Spain or already live here. It was originally an open forum, but as time passed there had been issues with this system. So now it is a closed forum, mostly viewable for 'members only'.
Except forums marked VIEWABLE.
We welcome any newcomers to join 'free'. Our rules are simple but strictly enforced. This is a NO HOSTILITY ZONE for people who wish to share or gain knowledge of Spain. (That said, we do have members from around the world as well here) Meet & make new friends. Share experiences. Chat in our chat room. Generally join in with the community here. We are not interested in large membership numbers, just a helpful active community

  Shrink Pic allows you to send photos from your computer using your favorite email program, instant messenger, or web browser. And it does so without the need for any effort from you - whatsoever!
 
Simply install Shrink Pic and that's it. Shrink Pic runs in the background and when you send photos, it will kick in and have them compressed for you. You have full control of what Shrink Pic does. You can specify the size of the photos to be sent and which photo types should be handled, but the actual compression operation is done automatically. You no longer need to make duplicates and resize them manually - Shrink Pic does that for you.
 
Caution
When you want to send photos for printing in a shop, you probably want to print with the highest photo resolution. Otherwise, why pay for an expensive camera if you only print low quality pictures?
Make sure that Shrink Pic is not processing your files when you upload them to your favorite photo printing website. You can either close the program or deselect Enable photo compression to ensure that Shrink Pic is not processing your photos when you upload them .

OK, I've mastered the art of adding pictures...I need to move a little deeper into the technological world now and try to attach a video....how the heck do you do that :headscratch

Is there some knowledgable person onboard who could explain in very easy terms of how to attach a video file....it really does need to be in extremely plain English for this poor blighter to understand.

What I am looking to do is something like the clips in the blog by Django:

http://www.costalivingforums.com/view_topic.php?id=2409&forum_id=150

I have uploaded a video file to photobucket and have all sorts of wonderful code, however when I try to put it in a post it just shows the code in a box and there is no way of seeing the video....I am obviously doing something wrong, so a step by step guide would be very useful for this dummy

Thanks in advance :250kissin

 Casa.  Before I totally confuse you with my desription, have you clicked on the 'Help' button at the top of the site (next to the calendar button), as it does have instructions there.
But does depend a little on what browser you are using.  I am pretty sure the instructions are for IE.  But  there are some other instructions for other browsers here somewhere if you need them.

 ok.  You see when you click to reply, you get lots of options in little boxes at the top of the reply box...   it's one of those!   

In the help section it does say a bit about it in the section 'inserting a link'.
If you don't manage before I find the post with more info, I will link it to this one.

I have read about what these different options do, but it didn't seem to solve my problem...I will do a test topic on a forum to show you my results and then it can be deleted later.

 That sounds a cunning plan!  I don't have anything here to try it with...hang on , yes I do.  I will play with them, but it probably depends on what type of clip you are loading as to which one it is.  I did do it successfully in the past, but have forgotten how now (brown cow). :biggrin

To insert a video or a slide show (FLV)  that plays on the forum page,
you will need to edit the code given by your hosting service;
it is a hit and miss affair: Internet Explorer and Firefox do not
handle this in the same way.

I have several short "tutorials" on the subject. I did not post them here
because nobody has ever been interested.

I think you use Photobucket, correct?
If you are interested, you can send me a PM/private message
and we'll see what can be done. In any case, tests will be necessary.

Django, perhaps if you post them, people will be.  
(sorry that Jefe hasn't been able to get back as yet).  Been incredibly bust sorting out http://www.costalivingproperties.com
