Saving Files

If you are going to use images in forum themes or to post in several forums it's best to upload them to your Files. Extra Members have 50mb and Plus 100mb.

Before you begin make sure you know where on your computer the files you want to upload to Delphi are.

Click on My Forums and then the Files link




Note that in that section you can see a folder called signature_files Delphi stores all the images you upload to your Signature editor in that folder.

You can create sub folders (but you cannot delete them, this is a VERY basic storage system) or just use the main one http://people.delphiforums.com/your membername/.  Files can only be uploaded one at a time (as well as deleted one at a time)

Click on the Folder you wish to keep the images in then Browse, a window will pop up and you will navigate through your computer until you have your image. Follow the steps below
 


 

1. Click Browse

2. Click on the image you wish to upload

3 .Click on Open

4. Click Upload

The screen will refresh when your image has uploaded.

To use your images you need their web address or Image Location.

1. Go to your Files and locate the image on your list.

2. Click on the image and it will open up.

3. Look in the address bar for the location. Highlight the full address and Copy it.

4. Paste it into the necessary place. If you are using the Delphi editor you'd choose From the Web
