Tutorial on using DropBox for Hosting Pictures for BSN

Author: 
Tarot Redhand

I am placing this on here as a way of making it easy to find. This is a tutorial in the form of an illustrated pdf file. In it I show you how to use DropBox to host Pictures for display in the threads on the BSN Forums. This file is available below.

Please Note - If you don't have a public folder (no longer created automatically since 4th October 2012) you need to create one yourself following the instructions on this dropbox help page. The instructions are about halfway down the page under "Creating a Public Folder".

You have apparently done some digging OR beating your head against the wall a few times, to get this stuff figured out.  Thank you very much for posting the instructions as I just gave up using Dropbox and purchased a yearly account on PhotoBucket to accomplish image saving.  I think I get more space for less money on PhotoBucket, but it is only good for pics, and maybe pdf or text files.  Never used it for that, but for pics it works great.  Downside though is it by default generates a lower quality link, it DOES allow linking to the truer higher quality image original, but the default links are 256 limited.

 

Anyway, thank you for posting the above PDF, believe me that I have saved a copy in my files folder for all downloads related to NWN now.

You're welcome bannor. BTW the instructions are almost identical for posting images on here. I may edit it after bsn gets paralyzed, so that it is still relevant.

AFAIK these instructions also work for on here (well I can post them from dropbox anyway) - just adjust the icons that you click when writing your post on here.
