Cool Posting pictures

I thought that I would start this little thread to help others who are having difficuly posting pictures & links .

Me being a computer moron took some time getting to grips trying to post pictures.

As far as i know, picture posting on the forum requires the use of a photo hosting service.

Plenty of good free ones out there.
Googles photobucket or Yahoos flickr are two very good ones. but there are quite a few others.

I use www.photobucket.com

Simply upload your pictures to your photo host site, you should be able to resize the photo when you upload.
Just choose 800x600 for a decent size postable picture.

Once you have uploaded your pictures, you will notice when you hover on or select a photo the direct link address will be displayed.

You will need to copy this direct link address, this is the one to be inserted into your post as a link or picture.

When you are creating your forum post & wish to add a link/picture

Use the insert link / insert image buttons on the toolbar above the text.

When you try you may be prompted to allow the use of scripted windows.

Select to temporarily allow scripted windows

Click on the link or image buttons again. This time you will be allowed to enter the direct address of your image or link.

I hope this makes some sense.

There may be better ways of posting links & photos, perhaps some of the more computer literate members would like to add some advice.

Im looking forward to the influx of pictures that better result from this.

I've had a look at a few peoples, but in my eyes you can never have enough pictures to look at when you're sitting round waiting for the time that you have enough money to start your build
