The DPNow photo gallery
is free for you to use as (within reason!) you like, but although anyone can rate photos in the gallery, you cannot leave or receive comments there. The place for commenting on photos is here in the discussion forum.
To get feedback on your gallery photos you need to show them in the forum and we heartily encourage you to do this!
Here's a simple and easy guide to get you going:
When you have selected a gallery photo, look down below it for the image UBBCode text. This is all you need to show your image in a forum post. You need to copy this text and paste it into your forum post. It's best to use the advanced
post edit mode.
As below, you can click on the 'copy to clipboard' button. Using 'right-click/copy' won't work as this has been disabled in the gallery so that images can be protected, to a degree, from unauthorised copying.
Then back to your new forum post, just paste the copied UBBCode text in like this:
The code can be pasted straight into your forum post - there is no need to use the Insert Image button, you only need to use that if you are displaying an image stored somewhere else on the Web.
It's a good idea to use the centre-align formatting button on the advanced edit tool bar for your image.
The result should look something like this:
And you can repeat the process with different pictures to include several in one post.
It's really as simple as that
- Tip: the gallery shows a 'medium' sized version of your image as well as a 'larger' original size - unless the larger size is excessive, it's better to show the larger size as it won't have been re-sized and some quality sacrificed.
