I've had so much info and advice and direction to dead posts

~ by so many Mods ~ I'm confused.

Is there a DEFINTIVE thread/post where Mods/Admin actually agree ?

Or do we have to fathom out, 'lazy' References to old and dead advice....
... I've been given that

ALL I WANT... is to know how to post a bloomin image, without it being
against Forum rules.

You could post in the test forum:
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/f55-test-forum.html
As long as the post does not contain banned content it will not be deleted immediately, only after 14 days.
You will probably get feedback there from mods or other members.

And once you figured out you could write a short how to or tutorial...

Default It seems quite easy to me

Just make sure that the thumbnails are 200x200 or smaller (I was bitten by that rule also, before I knew about it) and that the image host creates a browseable gallery for the batch, and you should be fine. Is there some other rule that you had in mind?

I'm surprised, judging by the high numbers in your sidebar, that you're having trouble with images at this late date! After 1,200 posts? I assume you must have been getting along OK so far.

Here's what I do, and it provides zero problems for me:
  1. In a new browser tab (alongside whatever you have open for VEF), go to pixhost.to, which is trivially easy to use.
  2. Use the "Add Files" button on that upload page to select all of your image files for this batch. Be sure to check the "Create gallery" box and to select "Adult (XXX)". Then click "Start Upload" and wait for the uploads to finish.
  3. On that same page, which now shows the thumbnails, click in the field "Forum Thumbnail", which will copy all of the BBcode to the clipboard.
  4. Go back to the appropriate VEF tab in the browser and paste the BBcode into the message editor.
  5. If your routine is to save a local copy of the outgoing message with all of the BBcode image-and-thumbnail links (usually a good idea), then also paste the BBcode into that archival copy in a text editor or whatever you use.
  6. Preview the message and its thumbnails before posting.
I've also used imx.to, which is good except that if you drag and drop a batch of image files onto its upload field, they won't stay in alphabetical order by file name, so you have to drag them individually, which is tedious. (imx.to doesn't accept a dropped directory of images, for some reason. To me, that's a bug. You can use a zip file, though.) With pixhost, you can select all of the images at once in the file-picker dialog from the "Add Files" button and they stay in order.

I avoid (forever) imagebam and imagevenue because of their various major problems ... just for starters, imagebam routinely discards the original file names, which is inexcusable. I give imagebam a rating of one star for that reason among others.

It's also often recommended to use various image hosts rather than just one, so you could have a short list of favorites and rotate among them, post by post.

A variation on that theme, for anyone who doesn't want to leave test-junk sitting around in public for two weeks (are some of us that self-conscious? ... well, sometimes I am), is to create a minimal topic message that's only a stub, then post the actual tests as replies to that, then delete the replies, leaving only the empty topic message to be removed by a mod or a robomod.

Thank You very much Fats....

There's been some very decent Mods trying to help me over the years....

.... I've been here longer than it says... why my suffix is "Again"

And, I'm still a pr@tt.

It's something to do with size I think. The last time I posted a pic, I'd forgotten that I didn't know how to actually 'post-a-pic' properly on VEF.
Other places, no prob. Here on Vef....
I'll admitt I'm thick, and maybe missing something somewhere, but it all comes down to "Size".

I don't want to post "XXX" cos I'm a wimpish sort..... more footie and Meme's.

Thank you very much Fats.... I'll start again
