HOW TO: Attach Pictures Into Posts

Post by Alex on Sat Jan 14, 2012 8:35 am

Here is a short, step-by-step guide on how to attach full-size photos into a post without using the photo-hosting link.

1) Upload to Facebook/Photobucket etc.
2) Right click image, click 'Copy image location'.
3) On your thread reply, type [ img] (Without the space).
4) Right click and paste the image location.
5) Type [/ img] (Again without the space).
6) There you have your image posted on here!

Alternatively, if you wish to attach a photo thumbnail that expands into a full photo using this forum's software, please follow the steps below:

1) Click the 'Host an Image' button. (It looks like a Polaroid photo with a floppy disc next to it)
2) Either choose photo from your computer by clicking the 'Browse...' button with the 'File' circle clicked, or click the 'url' circle and input the image URL.
3) If posting from your computer hard drive, select photo.
4) Give an image it's maximum size using the 'Resize image' drop down box. 640px or 800px is the best for this forum.
5) Click 'Host it'.
6) Click the 'Copy' button next to the link titled 'Thumbnail:'.
7) Paste the copied link into the thread where you wish the clickable image thumbnail to appear.
8.) To upload another image to the server, click the 'Upload' link at the bottom of this window.
9) To close this window, click the 'Host an Image' button again.

Any questions on this, please ask!
