How do i post Photo's in my post??

If you don't have one already you will need to find an online host that allows "Hot linking" where you can store any pictures that you would like to post and where the board can access it. (You can not post pictures that are on your computers C: drive, the pictures must be hosted online)

Most of our members have free hosting accounts from Fotki, Imgur, postimage.org or any number of other photo hosting services. refer to the photo hosts directions about how to upload your photo's to their server.

A lot of Internet Service Providers (ISP's) also set aside a little bit of space (Usually 5 to 10 megs) for their subscribers to host a small personal webpage. Inquire with your provider to see if they offer this with your account.

Once your pictures are online you can then post them for the rest of the board to see.

On the posting page you will see a box with the letters Img (image), click this button twice. You will get this:

[img][/img]

Click in the middle of those two brackets ][ and then enter the full URL of your picture

Example
(img) http://www.yourhostprovider.com/yourpicture.jpg(/img)

IMPORTANT- in the example above i used Parenthesis ( ) instead of the brackets so that the example would show up. Had i used the required brackets you wouldn't see the example as the board would try to post a non-existent picture and you would instead be seeing the dreaded "Red X" or broken picture link icon.



To post pictures the img tags MUST be in brackets [ ]

When you hit the submit button your picture will be included in your post

Click the button before and after pasting the image URL.
