Re: How to Post a Picture

You have to be a Forum Member and be logged in...

Easiest way is to click the "• Add image to post" below your text and then browse to the file on your computer and click upload. It will upload your file and automatically put the small version in your post. Anyone can then click on it to see large image.


1. Go to Photo Gallery at and click on "Upload Photos". If you don't see the button, register and login. You have to Register and log in before you can upload. Your forum login should work or you can register directly in the Photo Gallery there. logins won't work.

2. Click on the first "Browse" button and find the photo file on your hard drive.

3. Enter Title and Description if you wish and click the "Upload/Submit" button.
If it says Uploading Photos but nothing appears, your image is too large, either in file size or dimensions or both. It will take very large images but not giant images.

4. When you have got the picture uploaded and opened, RIGHT CLICK in the picture. You will get a text box opened. Scroll down to "properties" and left click. This brings up another box and in that box there will be a URL. Highlight the complete URL and copy (CNTL C).

5. Go to the forum where you want to post your picture. When you click on Post there will be several little boxes at the top of the page. The boxes contain the following: "B" for bold, i for italics, u for underline and so on. There will be one box that has "Img". When you are ready to post your picture press click the "Img", put your cursor in between the {img}{/img} and then paste your picture by pressing (CNTL V) and you are done.

That's all! :D

Another plus for the Photo Gallery... your picture is automatically sized just right for the Forums! :D

(Or you can use if you prefer. You need to change "Do not resize my image" to "640x480 for Message Boards". Click on "Choose Images" and find the image you want on your device and it will upload. Then copy the info in "Thumbnail for website:" and past in your post where you wish the image to appear. A small version of your image will be in your post and anybody who would like a better look can click on it and get a large view.)
