ClickPix.org - Sharing images on the forum

Recommended Posts

Glaude

Hello everyone !

To fit the need of a new image hosting platform and since we are getting blocked everywhere because of the heavy traffic we are generating, the RWI/RWG team has put together a new software, very much the same as the one you used to know under the name of Picr.me.

We proudly present you

ClickPix.org is working like the previous hosting solution we had, but this time, you'll see it evolve and some changes to the software are already planned.


How to use it ?

First of all, create an account on ClickPix.org in order to get back to your upload if you need them later, this is an optional step but it will benefit you in the long run

The easiest way to benefit from ClickPix.org is to use the dedicated button at the top of the editor area (the area where you redact your post) :

Be aware that if for some reason this button doesn't show up in the editor, a simple page refresh could solve the issue

After clicking on that button, you'll have a popup window opened in front of your screen (be vigilant to allow this popup if you have a strict Ad blocker or web browser)

In that popup window, you will be able to insert pictures from your device (works perfectly fine from a mobile device too). You can do so by multiple means.
The easiest is to drag and drop an image inside this popup but this could be hard to do sometimes.
So you can click directly on the big image in the middle of the popup :

This will open your operating system file browser and will allow you to browse for your images, you can upload a maximum of 50 every minute, but if your internet connection is a bit slow, this mean almost unlimited upload.

You can also click the "Browse from your computer" link inside the popup or the "add image URLs" to transfer an image you saw online (be careful of the copyrights & licence)

Once you've selected your images, they will be added to the popup window for a last control before you upload them

Click the upload button and the process will begin once it's done, the window will automatically close itself and you'll have the links added to your editor :

And there's nothing more to it from the board point of view !


How to use the ClickPix.org website :

If you want to upload pictures directly on the ClickPix.org website, you can certainly do so, but after that, if you want to share them on the forum, you may find it hard to do it without an explanation.

Once you've uploaded your photo or if you have some already uploaded and want to share them, you'll have to find them in your photo albums and once they are in front of you :

You will have to hover your mouse on each of them to select the one you want to obtain the links for

3tY3.jpg

Select as many as you want and then head your mouse over to the right top side of the website, to the Action link

3rzn.jpg

There, select the "Get Embed code" menu, a popup window will open, there you have to select the most appropriate type of link in the list, which will most of the time be : BBCode Full Linked (It's the biggest image type for the forum, with a link to the full size one if you click on it)

Then in the box below it, you'll just have to copy the links and past them inside your editor area on the forum

What happened to Picr.me ?

The Picr.me promise was to allow for a simple, reliable and secure file hosting service, and so far, none of this promise had been broken. But due to the large amount of storage and traffic the website generated, the previous server had issues handling it. In order to avoid breaking everything and lost the number 1 promise of picr : never break the internet like Photobucket did, we had to set up something else.

The question is, is that you on the toilet, or are you reaching across someone else sitting on the toilet?

Are you sure those photo where not in that orientation on your phone (I guess it's a phone taken picture ?) and it's the phone that made it appear correctly oriented when you looked at them ?

In other word, are you sure you took those picture in the "normal" orientation ? ClickPix will only attempt to rotate picture when it detect that they were taken in the incorrect orientation

Sorry for those huge pics in the last post

So I deleted all the pics on clickpix, uploaded the same pics plus another one and the upload confirmation showed them normally but the pic itself is rotated in the album on clickpix, here they are.

imgbb use the exact same software than clickpix, not a drop of difference, so if we have this issue, they have it too ...

To be honest, there's nothing that come up, out of the 600 pics already uploaded, first time seeing this and according to my research, it's not related to the software.

Here's how it works on ClickPix and any other image host using this software : imgbb, pixelsbin etc... 

The software will look for any EXIF data to detect correct orientation, if EXIF data are stripped, it will not be able to determine the correct orientation.
Most of phones nowadays will correct the orientation automatically to show them in the phone gallery correctly, when in fact, they are "incorrectly" oriented.
I have the situation myself when I transfer some pics on my PC that were looking fine on the phone, they appear rotated on the PC.
The image hosting software can't do any magic, it can't guess the supposed orientation, the phone is able to do it because it had the necessary information associated with the picture.

I've looked at the support forum of the software as well as online, it's not a software issue, and as I said, out of the already 600 images, this is the first report of that type, so things must be going alright for most of the people.

*Roll out a free hosting image software they said, it'll be fun they said, everyone will be happy they said... 

@Psssniper I invite you to continue testing and debugging with me in PM

I was only teasing mate, I think ClickPic is awesome, a wonderful addition to this place. I virtually stopped posting pics when Picr went down so to have this instead is quality!
