I've been working for the last couple of weeks to expand on the image upload utility that I use to add pictures to the main site; I now have it so that anyone can upload images, doing away with the need to refer people to sign up at PhotoBucket just to share images on the forums.

The main part of the pictures system displays images that have been uploaded by site staff for various parts of the site (the link is on the navigation sidebar on the main site, under "Site Home"), at the bottom of the pictures system you'll see the links to View User Uploads (any time an image is uploaded, it is added to an index page of all entries), Upload a Picture, or View Your Uploads (if you're logged into the forums the system will log your user id; other options are storing your IP Address, or if you had an account on the main site it'd store your user id).

When you upload a picture it is compressed and resized (if it is larger than 1600px), and when you view an image it'll include coding to embed the image on the forums, or links to share the image. You can also upload an image directly from your cellular phone or tablet.

I'm still ultimately testing the system; an eventual goal is to have it create a thumbnail for each upload so that the View User Uploads page doesn't take a long period of time drawing the page or wasting bandwidth for mobile users.

I tried to make it fairly straight forward, lol.

Hate to be the dumbo here but I'll have to try it to see if I understand it.

I have also been working on an informational page for Uploading Images; let me know if there is something that seems complicated and I'll try to decomplicate it :).
