New! Direct image upload to posts

There are now new buttons below the message area when you start a new topic or a reply to upload and insert images directly from the message posting page.



Button functions:

"Choose Photos" to select one or more photos.
"Choose/Take Photo" will appear on mobile devices to select a single photo, on iOS you can take a photo directly and upload.
"Clear" will deselect any photos you have chosen (only enabled once photos selected for upload).
"Upload" will start the upload process (enabled as above).

Once the upload procedure completes, you will get a row of thumbnails under the message area.



Simply click/tap an image to insert the BBCode for that image at the current location in the message area. Images will be slightly greyed out once clicked to indicate which ones you have used.

The two small buttons on the header above the are:

Refresh: at the moment this resets the greyed-out state of the images
Empty: this clear the list, so click this once you have used all the photos you want

Images loaded will persist across all new threads/replies until you click the "empty" icon, so you can add photos to multiple threads.

This feature has currently only been developed and tested on Google Chrome on Windows, so please let me have feedback on other platforms and systems.

It is compatible with iPhone/iPad with iOS 6, the first version when Apple turned file uploads on. On iOS 6 the "Choose/Take Photo" button should give the option to switch to the camera instead of the photo roll.

I hope this is useful and as above, please let me know feedback to improve the features or usability in general or on different devices/systems.

Cheers,

Uploading direct is a fantastic thing! Now no need for me to mail it to my laptop, then upload and then insert into a post.

Thanks for the new 'stuff' Martin. ===================================

I've mentioned this before (perhaps not on Def2) and the short answer is no, because I think they are lazy and stifle forum discussion. What's wrong with taking a few moments to say thanks in your own words and let the author know how they helped you?  1988 90 Td5 NAS soft top Cool

Matt,

I know what's up with it (you've never set a gallery up here) so I need to do some extra tinkering, hold fire and I'll get back to you.  1988 90 Td5 NAS soft top Cool
