How to upload an image to the forum

Posted · How to upload an image to the forum

Quite a few people find it hard to figure out how to add images to their posts so I made a short video showing how to do it.

Please note that there is currently a restriction in place that prevents people who have not validated their accounts from uploading images.

I hope this will clear things up a little bit, if not, let me know what is unclear.

 

edit gr5: It's also possible to host the picture elsewhere on the internet but this is usually a bad idea as we want the pictures to last for decades and most sites stop hosting after a few months.

    No, that works too. The downside is that external image hosters seem to have a habit of randomly disappearing and/or deleting images after a while. It's no fun going back to old threads and all the images are gone :)

    Why don't you simply add a button called Upload in the toolbox above the reply area? Maybe then, beside being displayed together with the text it could also be sent automatically to one's gallery.

    Because we're limited by the capabilities of the forum hosting software that Ultimaker uses. Believe me, we'd change the image handling tools if we could, because it sucks. :smile:

    Thanks for the tips. I do believe it is because my account is not validated yet. I will check back on this once that happens!

    It appears to be validated now though. :) You must have found the validation email.

    I think it is counter-intuitive that you need to select/create an album before you can see the upload button.

    The album / category buttons look like optional buttons instead of required buttons.

    Maybe tweak the layout a bit?

    I would furthermore like to see an [upload] button in My content > Gallery

    I'm glad you posted this. I've honestly been shaking my head on how Ultimaker doesn't easily host images. Unfortunately I've used imgur a bunch already, but I'll use this method in the future.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
