Daz3D just updated their forum interface. As with most new things, it took me a while to get used to it, but now, I am getting to like the new interface.
One of the first things that I had trouble with, was how to include properly sized images in my forum posts. I finally figured out how to do this, so this short tutorial gives step-by-step instructions on how to do this with the least amount of fuss. I am using the Chrome browser.
- Click on the Attach a file link.
- Click on the Choose File button, and select the image file(s) we want to post. This will upload our image files onto the Daz3D forum server.
- If we hover our mouse over any of the attached image thumbnails, a small menu will open up below it showing us the file size, and giving us the option to delete the image if we so choose.
- Instead, right click on our attached thumbnail and select Open image in new tab. This will open up our thumbnail image in a new tab on our browser.
- Go up into the browser address bar and remove thumbnail/ from the URL. This will give us the URL of our newly (large) attached image, on the Daz3D forum server.
- After we delete thumbnail/ from our address bar, and hit
, we should get the large sized image we just uploaded onto Daz. Go up to the address bar and copy this URL.
- Now we are ready to insert the image into our forum post. First, (a) click on the insert image icon in the Leave a Comment interface, at the bottom of each forum page. This will open up an Image Properties popup-window. Then, (b) paste our image URL into the URL box..
- At this point, we can also change the width or height of our image so that it is not too large. I usually set the larger of my image width or height to 520 pixels. Changing one, will cause the other to shift accordingly, to preserve the aspect ratio of our image.
- Next, click on the Link tab and paste our attached image URL in there as well. Then click on OK.
- This inserts our attached image into our forum post. We may then add text around it as we so choose.
