How to post photos taken in game on OZFM boards

Post by Lachy5 on Wed Feb 01, 2012 2:10 pm

Sorry Dazz I didn't think to put it here,

Being new to Live I don't know what I'm doing.
How do I get the photos of my cars that I take in game onto my computer so I can post them on here. Mostly for the paintjobs in certain comp's but might be handy for others on here who seem to be as spastic as I am Razz

cheers,

Lachy5

5. click on "My Forza"
6. either sign in using your Gamertag or just search for it
7. when your gallery is up click view all
8. click download (under the photo)
9. using a site like "Photobucket" or "flickr" upload your photo there (this forum even has its own image host you can use - Host an Image button)
10. copy the web address of the photo from the above site and paste it in your thread between

11. post it and if all goes according to plan there is your photo.

Servimg is the forum uploader.

You have to find your downloaded photo when you click on "browse" .

Then paste the middle one in your reply Smile

Uploading a Photo to OZFM part B

To to Forzamotorsport.net (Link)
Click "My Forza"

Click "Sign In"

Type in your Windows Live ID and password and click "Sign in"

Scroll down to "Gallery - Recent Photos"
Click on "View ALL"

Choose the photo you want and click "Download"

Depending on your computer OS and browser you will need to save the file. I have Win 7 and IE9, so I will show you how it is done using that. Others will be similar.
Click on "Save" at the bottom of the screen.

Then Click on "Open Folder"

You will need to take note of where the file is saved to and the name of the file. It should be what you called it in Part A.


Part C coming soon.
