This is the most current and easiest way to post nominations as of November 2017



It seems quite a few people still have trouble getting a full size image to post in the POTM nominations. It has gotten easier since this was originally written. Here is how:


It takes a few edits to get all the info in your nomination.

First, click on the picture you want to nominate, to bring it to full size. In the bottom right corner under the picture there will be 2 option boxes, select the one that says "save". This opens the picture in a new window. Now if you right click on this image, the drop down window will have several options. Select the "copy image", and then close all and go to the current POTM Contest. Start a new nomination post, where you can type your comments, the photographer's name, and if you like you can type a name for the picture.You will need to copy the thread link afterwards as step two, so you can type something like "found in the thread.......... and leave the location blank.


Now click to place the cursor where you want the picture you have already copied to be placed. and manually paste it there by pressing CTRL and V. You get the full sized copy pasted. This method just saves another step.

You will get this:




Select Post, and you have finished step one.


Next, go back to the thread where you found the picture. In the post where the picture appears, there is a small green icon at the far right of the top line where the members name appears, that looks like a V on its side. When you right click that, you can select "copy link address", and then return to your nomination post. Hit the edit button, and you can then paste that address in the position you left blank (found in the thread), by once again clicking the curser where you want it, and then hitting the CTRL and V keys. The address is now added. It will look like this:


Be sure to save the changes and you are done......








Thanks to Larrytopsoil for the use of his image. (he does not know I used it yet)


I will try to add any other tutorials needed as we go. I hope you all participate regularly and enjoy this as much as I have.


(this was updated to the most current method on November 27, 2017 and is still applicable 9/24/19)

This is an alternate method that works for some people easier.
