Arrow Uploading and Posting Images with imagevenue.com Bulk Uploader (Flash Uploader)

This tutorial replaces the old version which guides you to the uncomfortable basic html uploader. If you aren't able to use a Flash Uploader and need instructions how to use the basic uploader, go to this thread.



Uploading and posting images with
Imagevenue Bulk Uploader (Flash Uploader)


Website / URL:
http://www.imagevenue.com

Allowed / Restrictions each upload process:
Image Types: jpg only
Size per Image: max. 3 MB
Amount per upload: unlimited(?)

Requirements:
  • standard modern browser (Firefox, MSIE, Opera, Safari, Chrome .. )
  • Javascript enabled
  • Flash plugin
  • knowledge how to copy & paste text.


If you visit Imagevenue's website having all necessery requirements you will directly gain the tool to upload your images (Screen 1). It's easy to use and very organized. From top to the bottom you will find all elements you need to use in the same order each time you want to upload images (note: the upload-tool has slightly changed meanwhile, you will find additional buttons to sort or to change the display mode before uploading the selected images - those functions are not part of this tutorial.)


Screen 1
Imagevenue Upload Tool


STEP 1 : Browse your harddrive to select the image(s) you want to upload.

As soon as you click "Browse" (Screen 2) the familiar window to locate files on your harddrive pops up . I guess I don't have to tell you how you find the images you want to upload now. So go straight to the folder where the images reside (Screen 3).

Now select all the images you want to upload from this folder (Screen 4). You can do that by either holding left mouse button and markup all images you want, or holding STRG on your keyboard when selecting several single images. If you switch to a different folder in this step, the selections you've made will be lost. To finish the selection from this folder and to add it to the upload queue, click "Open" (Screen 5). If you want to upload images from multiple different folders you just have to repeat this step after you've added your last selection to the upload queue.

Screen 2 Screen 3 Screen 4 Screen 5
Start Selection Window File Selection Finish Selection



STEP 2 : Required and optional settings:

After finishing step 1, the selected images were added to the upload queue of Imagevenue (Screen 6). Here you can either remove a single image or you can click "Browse" again to select further images to be added to the queue, for example images which are located in a different folder you weren't able to select yet. Also you could click "Clear list" to remove all images from the queue if you want to start from the scratch or remove multiple selected images from the queue by clicking "Remove item".

If all images you like to upload are queued, you first need to adjust some required options:
  • [required] if you upload nudity or harder stuff, set "Image content" to "Adult content" (Screen 7)
  • [required] Keep "Interlink images" to "yes". Meanwhile the forum rules require that your chosen imagehost supports the gallery option so you have to use this option to gain the typical "gallery navigation" ("previous" / "next" / "show all") from any single image of this upload (Screen 8). Just click any image in the example post below to control how it looks like.
  • [required] Set "Thumbnail Size" max. to "180 x 180" for any upload to be used at VEF. (Screen 9)

If you've added all images you want to upload with this process and finished all necessary settings you can press "Send" to upload the images to the Imagevenue servers (Screen 10):

Screen 6 Screen 7 Screen 8 Screen 9 Screen 10
Queue Adult Content? Interlink? Thumbnail Size? Send Files


STEP 3 : Post the uploaded images to our forum.

How long it takes to upload your images depends on the amount and size of the queued images. Imagevenue performance is usually very good so it shouldn't take that long. You can follow the status of each upload in the upload queue until all images are finished or you can do something else meanwhile. Just don't close the imagevenue browser tab or refresh it with a different website. If you do so, everything is lost.

As soon as the upload is completed, Imagevenue responses with a new page. Now you eventually have to scroll down a bit until you reach the code section. All you need to do is to copy the entire code from the first forum code box (Screen 11) and paste it directly into your post (Screen 12) - or into the Layout Fixer Tool (see next post).
Don't use the "insert image" button () to add the code! Finally click "Post Reply" and that's it.

Screen 11 Screen 12
Copy Code Post Code

Easy doing, wasn't it? So good luck and enjoy posting your images with imagevenue


Related questions:

Register to imagevenue or not?

It's not required to register to imagevenue if you want to use this service, you only need to be registered and have to login if you want to organize your uploaded galleries later (to replace images, remove single images, a complete gallery or everything you've uploaded with your account). I've made the experience that registration isn't necessary at all. The images seem to be kept forever even as unregistered user, and if you want to change something it's nearly the same work if you just edit your post you want to modify - either by removing or by replacing images or a gallery. Keep in mind that you have to modify your post(s) as well if you replace galleries of your account, Imagevenue can't do that for you cause they don't know where your posts are located!


Layout of posted images

If you are familiar with bbcode you can easily modify the given code to give your post a different look. Just take care that you don't mess up the code-block for each single image, don't modify anything here it will just lead to a non-working image in most cases. Because Imagevenue gives you some code which automatically adds a line break after 3 images, i use a self-written script which replaces the linebreaks with simple spaces. This leads to a layout which takes care of the available width of a post. Check the following post for an example.


Testing image uploads and posting.

Use this tutorial and start a thread in our test chamber if you want to check out how it all works before you post to our regular threads. There you will find a sticky, helping with image related problems, too.

Typical Imagevenue based post with Imagevenues original BBCode:

The LayoutFixer (2KB) tool would "repair" this code and you could gain a post look like this:

Default Just a few issues & questions

This thread was extreamly helpfull, I really do want to express my gratitude, however while reading & trying to learn as a new member should i came upon a few issues.

I think I just need clearification.
any help would really be appreciated, many thanks

Hello, bluehalo. #2 above has been removed because it was outdated but this was more advanced than you need anyway. #3 above: Imagevenue and Imagebam automatically create a gallery unless you deselect it.

Brilliant that, Thanks for the clearification, and that has also took alot of worry of my mind regarding galleries on imagevenue, much appreciated.

Just on a side note, I think I do need to mention at this stage in my progression within the forum is one rule I may find a hard to keep in check is the:

"do not post short comments or short 'thank you' posts - use the button" from the main rules in the VEF Forum Rules thread using the thanks button im ok with, but not replying with a thankyou is going to be difficult when my personality is friendly & polite. but I will try to refrain myself and sit on my hands if I have too from this point on.

bluehalo, thanks for your input!

1. Theres a broken link, No Screen 2 image. image down, needs a re-up.
sadly i don't have the original images of this tutorial, but i can tell that the missing image in screen 2 is nothing else than a repitition of screen 1 having the browse-button marked up red. i think people won't learn much more from this tutorial if i would recreate this screenshot. nevertheless, I've fixed it.

Quote:
2. the "this post" link is broken
i've fixed that, too. especially when using imagevenue this "tool" is really helpful, cause the layout result provided by imagevenue sucks major ass if you're uploading a gallery based on portrait-sized images (see replaced example below tutorial)

Quote:
3. Any posts made using an image host that does not support a gallery option are subject to removal without notice.
this rule was implemented after i've made this tutorial, honestly it's so new that i read about it today first time, lol. all i can say to this rule - some moderators love it to re-invent the wheel. too bad that p&h has such a gallery option... . Anyhow, I've changed the explanation for "Interlink Images" to emphase this new "rule".

Quote:
"do not post short comments or short 'thank you' posts - use the button"
the point is : if you are a subscribed member to a content driven thread (like "short haired girls" as linked some lines above) you get a notification (somewhere) with each new post in that thread. and people who are subscribed really don't want to read your well meant and polite thank you messages. they want pics, movies or something worth for them to read.

you can send your polite thanks via visitor message or personal message to a specific member. please don't write it in a thread which would be like an email to all.

Hi,
I'm trying to upload screen grab thumbnails.
I have created a folder and uploaded the thumbnails through thumbnails maker. In my folder I have a 'get link code' option against each set of thumbnails. When I click the box, I get 4 options when I try to upload
1 share with friends via e mail/IM
2+3 hotclick a thumbnail on to a forum and
4 hot click a thumbnail to a website.

When I click on one of these, I get

<a href="http://img169.imagevenue.com/img.php?image=636018787_HAUSFR1.mp4_123_973lo.jpg" target
=_blank><img src="http://img169.imagevenue.com/loc973/th_636018787_HAUSFR1.mp4_123_973lo.jpg" border="0"></a>

There are no other ways to proceed that I have found.

Where am I going wrong??

sorry, seems an important part of the tutorial screenshots run dead. I've replaced the missing image meanwhile.

you have to use this one:


that's the only working thumbnail code for our forum ("bb code"). the other 3 boxes are obsolete / nonfunctional (here).

addendum:
the code you've displayed in your post is for people who want to include images in their own websites - it's html code. usually such code can't be used in any forum cause if html would be allowed, forum visitors could destroy the entire layout (and more) - it's very unsafe for a website (and for its visitors) to offer such an option to the public.
