I don't understand why CAG don't have a dedicated system for uploading images. It seems that the people that need to upload images the most are new users. New users face restrictions on posting attachments and links.

 

 

It seems that they have to download some software to turn them into PDF's and then upload them to the site.

 

Why not have a CAG image uploader where it is possible for the user / mods to modify the images to black out sections? This wouldn't be too hard to do for a PHP developer.

Hi Joeyjoec

 

A lot of threads don't require the downloading of images, it's probably about 5%, possibly less.

**you can post up images/letters by this method immediately..you don't need 10 posts**

.

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

DO IT IN MSPAINT.EXE or any photo editing program

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites ...

http://freejpgtopdf.com/

http://www.convert-jpg-to-pdf.net/

..

if you have multiple scans/pics

put them in a word doc FIRST and convert that to PDF

or http://www.freepdfconvert.com/

or

use http://www.pdfmerge.com

 

convert existing PC files to PDF [office has an installable print to PDF option]

..

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf if

you have many images too rather than many single pdfs

.

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

though DONT USE BANK NAMES or CAGicon in the title

i'e Default notice DDicon-mm-yyyy

.

open a new msg box here

hit go advanced below the msg box

hit manage attachments below that box

hit the add files button on the top right

hit select files, navigate to your file on your pc

hit upload files

...

YOU DONT have to put a link to the attachment in the msg box..just upload it ..job done

.

SabreSheep - My point exactly. Crazy amount of steps to have to upload an image.

 

I read through around 20 a day, at least a few have requests to upload images of street signs / agreements etc. Nearly all of them seem to have trouble doing it.

It's only people with fewer than 10 posts who have to jump through hoops though, isn't it? For everyone else, just clicking the 'insert image' icon in the new post/reply editor lets you upload an image from your computer - no need to mess around with PDFs.

 

The restriction on new users upload images would have been because of spam, but we could probably relax that if it's causing too many headaches.

trouble is we don't want images in threads

 

just makes the whole thread huge in size and the whole post slow to load.

 

it much better to upload PDFS and 'choose' whether you want to open a hugh file

 

the long instructions

 

are because some people are new to computing

and are incapable/unable to simply understand the simple bits

 

convert to pdf

upload via the manage attachment button.

 

to be honest I wish we could go back to when instead of a thumbnail

we just had the attached file title.

 

not everone has 50Mb broadband

some of us are still on less than

and when theres a 2MB+ image the thread can take 2-3 mins to load.

the other thing is the image upload puts it in a box

 

on my screen that's far too small and we all cant zoom

 

on a pdf you can zoom to you hearts content.

uploaded pix, you cant!

Ahh yes, you're spot on DX. If it's a scan of a letter etc it could easily be a couple of MB

I don't mean images in the post, just links. Images in the post can be a pain. Zoom issue can be fixed easily with some java script.

 

My whole point would be a system where they upload the raw images to a dedicated CAG page

and are able to edit it from there to cover details.

 

The page will auto resize and optimise the image and output a link for the user to use on CAG.

 

Forum code will then detect the link is a safe on from CAG and allow for it to be posted.

its mainly down to stopping spammers re the links.

 

if someone has something important to post

 

then there is always the alert triangle to ask for the link to be resolved by the siteteam.

 

usually there is very little actual needs to post links .
