Title: Posting Photos on the Forum
Post by: Gideon Scheepers on August 24, 2010, 19:22:41
Uploading your photos to the Forum.

Photo posting using Photobucket:
You can upload your photos to an online image hosting site such as Photobucket (http://www.photobucket.com). See the following site for more photo hosting options. http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-image-hosting.php

To link to a picture from Photobucket:

1) Have the picture in digital format. If it a photograph on photographic paper you will need to use a scanner to get it onto a computer. If it is a digital camera then just load the file onto your computer.

2) Re-size the picture to sensible proportions (Try to have it not larger than 800 x 600). Please try to keep photos on the smaller side, both for ease of viewing and quicker download time for those on dial-up connections.

3) Save the picture as a .jpg or .gif

4) In your posting, make an "IMG" link directly to the image to display as an actual part of your posting by typing like this:

[img*]http://www.yoursite.com/image.jpg[*/img]

**********(make sure there are no *, I had to do that so it wouldn't think these were actual links.)

To view how your message and photos will look before submitting your message, you can choose the preview button to be sure everything looks the way you had hoped.

The other method would be to link it from your own website, using the  above.

Good luck, and let us know if you need further assistance!
