Uploading pictures?

Recommended Posts

I'm new, I collect coins but starting to collect banknotes. What is the best way to take a picture and upload them on to my collection? Thank you in advance.

David52 - Welcome! 

Perhaps the best way is to scan a banknote and then upload it through a third party site like https://postimages.org/  and then use the links to post into the forum text. You can use a digital photo as well instead of a scan, but scans are often the better looking images. If you are highlighting some aspects of a banknote such as reflective ink, wrinkles, etc., a photo at an angle with angled lighting is also useful. You will need to experiment for each note in those circumstances, though.

Dave is correct, use a scanner to create an image file of the banknote.   I upload my images to the banknotebank.com (http://www.banknotebank.com)

Once the image is uploaded,  you browse to the image on the web site.  Then right click on the image and select Properties.

That will show you the URL for the image.  Just click on the address and select and copy it.

Then click cancel, then go to Forum.  Click on Insert other media and select "Insert image URL"

Paste is the URL and click "Insert to Post"
