Easy guide to upload pictures in Skydrive and use them in blog, forum post etc
Most of the active users know here how to do. Its intended for basic users.
Get 25 GB of secured online space,where you can put any kind of file like images, documents, backup and can restrict or share individual folders like you do in Windows 7 computer and its all for free , even you dont have purchased a Windows PC.
In this tutorial, we will learn how to use this potential space for free to insert photo or images in original quality to share with friends on Forum, Blogs or even small websites; which either does not offer their server space to use for uploading photos.The major advantage is, viewers will never have to see those peculiar icons instead of photos/images for long inactive accounts,
that always happens with photo sharing services like photo bucket. Users can open the uploaded image in full size and intact quality; but they can not access your profile by any means.I had written this tutorial long ago, in the meantime, Windows Skydrive has integrated Office with it; so, the screenshots are a bit older. But, the basic function has remained the same.
On clicking my Blog images (I used Live Spaces ago):
I have shown after clicking the options link on right top of the page. Each picture has unique address.Just to give you example, Click here to open the above page in new window
, but you can never reach my sky drive digging it from back-its completely safe!Uploading big sized photos without compression:
I think its a boon for the professional photographers to upload and share nice photographs without any compression. How to do that? (By Default it will compress your photos to save your space).Follow me:
Go to a folder and add your files. If you dont want to share, select “My documents” (You can change permission at any time though;By default its not shared). If you want to share select “Public”:
I got Drop option because Windows Live toolbar is installed in my computer. If you dont have that installed, you will get “Browse” option. Select File. You will get something like this:
Click that image (Preview):
Now click this bigger image:
Look at the address bar. Single click it.Press [CTRL] and [C] to copy that big unique address. I am copy-pasting the address of that screenshot for example (it is not of the little doggy shown above):
(Thats why I asked you to copy, its impossible to remember.)
If you lose a single letter or digit,the whole thing will be valueless,make sure the three letter extension is there like ….bnmhj.png
You can now post images to forums,blogs,email without thinking of loss of quality.
1.You will see an "Information" column on right side of preview page. You can copy the image url from there, or can use the embeded code to use in Facebook or elsewhere (without uploading there).
2. Code for PhBb forum:[img]url here[/img] ; you can use in PM too. use [center][/center] to make it centered
3. HTML code: There are lot of websites provides free HTML codes with examples, just search the web. (I tried to put them here as code, but it took as image).
In case you need to convert code from BBCode to HTML (or reverse) you can use free online converters. Generally HTML to BBCode is needed for people like me.
