HighSlide Image Mod - What It Is & How to Use it

It works similar to other image mods that give you a thumbnail image and then links to a full-sized image. This mod's thumbnails start at 300 wide by default and can be changed by editing the image tag. It's "full sized" photo stays within the browser screen.

Click on images to enlarge and click again to make smaller.

1. Upload your images to an image hosting site, like Imgur.com and copy the link to the image. Photo Sharing Using Imgur.com

2. Create your post on the forum and either click on the Highslide icon - shown in image below:



Example of the code it provides:



Or copy the code: Copy/paste the code below into a post and add your image link where it says to add link.

Code: [Select]

[hs width=350] .Jpg Image Link Goes Here [/hs]


   To get image link -- Right-click on image and select copy image address or location, depending on what browser you're using.

3. Copy the .jpg image link and paste in between the brackets - Like shown in the image below:



4. Delete height tag so it maintains aspect ratio which helps it look better - or else it will look odd/boxy.

Examples of image mod:

The boxy or scrunched look (Left both width and height)


Looks better, cause it's widescreen!! (took out the height)


The "full screen" example


Go ahead, give it a try. :)
