Title: How to post pics
Post by: JP on October 06, 2005, 08:58:58 PM
This is almost a standard on these kinds of boards, so let me deal with it now.? This is a slightly different BB interface than is standard on most hobby sites, but the process to post a pic is very simple.

When posting, simply mash the "insert image" button with a little icon of a picture that appears just above the text box of your post, just below the italicise button.? If in doubt, a description of each button will appear if you place the cursor over it with your mouse for a second or two.? After you click the image button, you should see something like this appear:

[ i m g ] [ / i m g ]

You will have to have your photo stored somewhere on the web.? There are several sites offering photo storage, and some email accounts come with some file space.? However you choose to store your files, simply type the URL of your image between the brackets.? It should look like this:

[ i m g ] h t t p : / / y o u r? p i c t u r e? U R L? h e r e [ / i m g ]

(note: I inserted spaces in the lines of code above so you could see the text and not the infamous "red x".? There should be no spaces when you are actually trying to post an image.)

That's it!? You can do this anywhere in your post you like.? As long as the URL is correct, your image should appear.
