    Lightbulb How To Post A Pic

    Not everyones computer literate, so thought id to a guide on how to get them pics up.

    There are 2 ways to get a pic on the site

    1: Hosting on photobucket

    Firstly, go to http://photobucket.com/ and register, it's free.

    To start uploading pictures, click on the Upload images & videos tab.



    This will open a window on your pc, you will need to navigate to the pic you want to upload,as highlighted in purple, you can either double click on it or click once and select Open or Select.



    Your picture will then start to upload, once uploaded you will have the option to add tags, change title etc.

    Once done, hit the Return to album tab.



    You will then see you image uploaded to photobucket, and to make it appear on the forum simply copy and paste the [img] tag onto the forum reply box, it's the 4th one down.



    Preview your reply to make sure it's how you want and Submit...

    2: direct upload to the site

    2 ways to do this:

    1:

    In the reply box you will see an 'Insert Image' icon.



    Click on it to open up the 'Add Image From Computer' box.



    Make sure you select 'From Computer' tab and then hit 'Select Files' Tab.



    A window will pop up, then you need to navigate to the image on your PC or Mac.

    Double click on it and your image and it will be added to the 'Add An Image From Your Computer box'



    Then hit 'Upload Files' and your image will be added to the reply box.



    Add any text and preview before submitting.





    2:

    In the reply box you will see a paperclip tab, hit it.



    A window will pop up and on the right you will see 'Add Files' hit it.



    Another window will pop up and you will see 'Select Files' hit it.



    Same as previous, navigate to your image on your PC and double click on it.

    The image title will now appear in the window, then hit the 'Upload Files' tab.



    It will then appear in the bottom of the pane, all you need to do then is hit the 'Insert Attachment' tab.

    Thats odd about photobucket, should work a treat.

    Just tried the other way and it looks like the image resizer is interfering and I cant even upload pics

    Photobucket is definatley the way to go though, did you get an email confirmation for your account ?

    Ok got it sust now.

    In your reply box, hit the 'Insert Image' icon as seen below.



    Select 'From Computer' then 'Select Files'

    This will open a window so you need to navigate to where your image is.

    Double click on it and select 'Upload File'

    Your image will be inserted as below.

    Thats for an image thats hosted on the web.

    You need to look to the left and select 'From Computer' and not 'From URL'
