OK hello, so you want to know why you can't seem to manage to get your photo/banners/pictures on your wiki page or in your house description? This page will tell you how to do it, just follow the steps below!

How to Upload an Image

You can either upload it to an image hosting website, or to Elftown.
To upload a new image, it has to be on your computer.

To Upload your image to your Elftown house

A. Go to <img:t/house.gif> and click on 'Upload a new (or delete current) photo' or 'Upload a new (or delete current) drawing'.

B. Click 'Browse' to find the image on your computer, select the image and click OK.

C. You can now add a description underneath, that will be displayed underneath the image on your house.

D. Click <img:knapp/upload_new_image.gif>

Note: If you want to stop displaying an image in your photo- or drawingslot, go back to the upload screen and click <img:knapp/upload_new_image.gif> without having selected an image. This will make that image slot on your house blank again.
If you want to display an image that you already uploaded before, click on <img:knapp/use_old_image.gif> below that image.

How to put the image in my description/wiki/etc

A. Right click on the uploaded image.
B. Go to properties (Or "View Image Info")- this will display the URL <IMG:(URL to the image)>
C. Copy it.
D. Paste it where you want it to appear.


Uploading to a Wiki-Page

It is also possible to upload images directly to a wiki page, but to be able to do this you need to get priv 99. Members can get this new Priv setting by requesting them in the comments on Guards. They will evaluate you based on your past account history, those who have broken the UAR several times may be refused.

Once you get Priv 99 on each wiki page you will see a new 'upload feature' at the bottom of each page. Here you can browse your computer for an image, select it, then upload it.
See wikiprivs for instructions.

You must remember to name the file and add its extension, so if you are uploading a .gif file and want to call it 'friendly cat', name it friendlycat.gif then click upload.

Always make sure you follow the Uploading Art Rules.

2005-09-24 [öobhgöj]: I draw my pictures in corel painter IX, but I can´t uppload the drawed pictures!

2005-09-24 [Charybdis]: What file format are they in? Generally, it's best to upload only jpegs, gifs and pngs.... try converting your drawings to one of those formats, and seeing if they will upload then.

2005-10-09 [Kiche]: Help please! I dont understand step one! Sorry im sort of new! I made a picture on paint, how do i get it on a wiki?

2005-10-09 [ally]: Upload the image in your drawing or photo-slot. Copy the address and paste it between these <img: >

2005-10-12 [Rainbowsheep_xX]: whenever i upload a picture i dont see the picture jsut a box like the one with the white box and x?? the one up there ^

2005-10-20 [Its Hard To Speak WWithout A Tounge™]: how do u send pics in a messgage

2005-10-20 [Charybdis]: Do the first four steps outlined on the img page, then put the picture's URL in your message. :)

2006-07-14 [¿gods girl?]: well thank you I will try these right away!^_^

2006-07-27 [Chan_55]: how do you get more than 1 photo and 1 art pic on your house profile?

2006-07-27 [Charybdis]: If you mean the ones above the main part of your presentation, technically you aren't supposed to. But you can add images to the main section following the directions laid out on img :)

2007-06-17 [Lin-tastic]: ...This makes me seem so dumb, do we upload to a wiki?

2007-06-17 [ally]: cnetg9

2008-09-24 [Tynuka-Rhytishy]: Help me PLEASE!?

When I browse the file from my computer, it's a GIF. When it uploads, it's reading as a JPEG. Am I doing something wrong or am I missing a step in between or what?


2009-03-15 [hammersmashface]: okal of a sudden wen i try to upload a picture this happens :  i click brows (seleckt a pic) and wen i click upload image ...the file name in the brows box simply disapears adn nothing happens..i own the wiki i already have a few pictures in it...this just started today...anyone know?

2009-04-25 [Shimmer_ox]: I cant upload a picture. I click upload/delete photo, find the one i want click upload new photo and it disapears and does not work What am i doing wrong??

2010-06-26 [Foxy Shazam]: I am having the same problems as stated above.

2012-10-23 [pegasus1000]: Silly question time: I have drawn a cute owl on my computer. How do I get the white background to be invisible?

2012-10-23 [pegasus1000]: <img:stuff/aj/37513/PinkOwl.0>
Question 2: Would this be considered "Puppet art"

2012-10-28 [Zab]: You save the picture as a transparent .gif or .png. Make sure the transparent parts are transparent as you save it (the backgroundlayer should not be white). Then you upload the image as a .gif or .png

2012-11-01 [pegasus1000]: I am using paint so I'll have to see if I can do a transparent background... If you know how it would make my life MUCH easier.

2012-11-01 [pegasus1000]: *MS Paint
