Since this question comes up a lot, here is a how to on posting a photo here. I'll use photobucket as an example, but you can use any hosting site you wish.

1. Go to http://photobucket.com and sign up for a free account

2. On the main page, choose UPLOAD


3. Use the CHOOSE FILES button to get a file from your computer, the internet, etc. Use the CTRL key to choose more than one file at a time.


4. Click once on the [IMG] code under the pic. This will copy to clipboard.


5. CTRL-V (paste) in the message section of your thread.

Another way is to copy the direct link code, use the image link button on the forum, and paste the url into the box. I find the first way is easier though.

Happy posting!


[There] [They're] [Their]
And tomorrow we'll learn to tie our shoes.

I'd like to expand on this a little Raven if you don't mind.

Firstly, there are a couple ways to do this, and it varies...

If you are uploading images off of your computer, then the way Raven explains it is perfect. Though sometimes you may want to post images that you found on other websites too. You can do so without moving them to a photo album as explained above.
(If you use other peoples images please make sure to cite the website that they came from if you can).


Step 1: This is the image posting button on this forum.


Step 2 - Firefox: Right click the image and select copy image location.
If you use FireFox, follow this step, then continue to step 3


Step 2a - Internet Explorer: Right click the image and select properties.


Step 2b - Internet Explorer: Inside properties window, highlight the address (URL) line, and right click it to copy the image location.


Step 3: Return to the forum and press the button that is referred to in Step 1, this will open a pop-up box. Paste your image link in the line provided.


Step 4: Viola! You have completed all you need to do... Now you can add anything you want to the post outside of the [IMG] tags, or add more images if you have not done so already.



We can never go back to the way it was...
