Easiest is to set up an online hosting account, like www.photobucket.com
. It's free, works very well here with the boards, many use it.
Once set up, just follow the steps on that site to upload a picture, or pictures. Once uploaded, just go back to where you can see your pictures in your photobucket album and do a single left mouse click
on the line of code that has IMG Code words before it (just click on the code itself, once). **
That will copy all that is needed to make the picture show up here, including any necessary code tags (do not add anything). Come back here, go to a post, single right mouse click and select paste. That's it!! :thumbsup2 Do a preview, see how it looks. If good, then post.
If you are using a picture in a signature, make sure you read their current rules in the 'sticky' that Bill has at the top of this board. If you do not have any photo edit software to resize a photo before uploading, for a signature, I would suggest maybe selecting the 'thumbnail size (160 X 120) in the 'Uploading Options' link that is right below the Upload Images & Videos box there in Photobucket, that should keep a picture within their current signature rules here. For placing in a post itself, not a signature, 640 X 480 seems to work best.
Any problems or questions, just ask.
** The Photobucket one-click copy functionality is not currently available from computers and browsers that are using Adobe Flash Version 10. When you click on a code, the code will be selected and high-lighted. You must use your computer's copy functionality to place the code into your clipboard.
Updating 2/1/2009......the above one-click function seems to be working again.
