Collage with clickable pics

I have 88 pics to share and I'm wondering how some people turn them into a collage with clickable pics. Right now the pics are on Photobucket and I can't make it happen. It's only letting me do 10 thumbnails at a time, not sure why. The question is, how do I use my membership benefits on this site to turn these pics into a collage of thumbnail pics?
Thanks for any help.

Re: Collage with clickable pics

You will need to do the following:
  • Build collage as one picture.
  • Using an image mapper software (like Handy Image Mapper) map out or draw borders around each picture in the collage and provide the url/link to the bigger picture or where ever you want to go when you click on that area.
  • Next you will need to build a simple webpage using very basic html that includes your collage picture and the supporting map you created above.

Now that bad news. You can't do all of this using TeamCamaro site as this site doesn't allow you to post html. This means the webpage you build above will need to be hosted somewhere else. But the good news is that you'll be able to link to it from TeamCamaro. Meaning, include a non-clickable version of your collage picture on any TeamCamaro thread/post and link it to your webpage you created above.

When you're all done it will "look" and work like the one you see below.

Click on the collage in the post and you end up on my site looking at the real collage that’s linked up.
Click on any member photo and you end up back at TC looking at that member’s profile.
Click on the TC logo in the middle and you end up at the main TC page.



Hope that makes sense…

Re: Collage with clickable pics

Your collage is the one that came to mind when I thought about making mine. I remember seeing it. The first three lines of your post were already getting pretty involved and then you stated, "And now the bad news". That's when I knew this was way beyond someone of my caliber . I'll still give it a try this weekend though. Is there a way that you know of to just post the pics (small ones) from photobucket into a post here? If the pics are made into thumbnails I don't understand why TC won't except them. I normally don't have problems posting pics. Appreciate your help and advise.
Thanks,
Rick

Re: Collage with clickable pics

To post pics from Photobucket into threads here, you simply click on the little yellow/gray mountain icon located at the top of the Message box (box where you type your messages/replies into). A new window will pop open and that's where you will paste the URL to your picture on Photobucket. Easiest way is to have the picture up in another browser and simply cut and paste the URL from that window into the one that pops open when you click yellow/gray mountain icon. Hope that makes sense...If I get around to it later on the week, I'll put together a more illustrated step by step instructions with pictures regarding how to setup the collage.

Re: Collage with clickable pics

O.K. I can normally post pics here from photobucket. The problem I'm having is I have 88 pics to post and this site is only letting me post 10 at a time, even the small thumbnails. I just think I'm doing something wrong because I see other people posting more than 10 pics. Thanks again.

Re: Collage with clickable pics

The limit is 10 per post. Usually they repost again and add 10 more pictures.

Rick,
Yes, 10 is the limit per post. A workaround to that would be to "glue" several pics into one longer pic.

Re: Collage with clickable pics

Maybe I'll just put the pics in an photobucket album and provide a link (before I get in over my head any further ). I saw it done that way just the other day. Thanks guys.
