How to post pictures - a guide
There seem to be questions fairly regularly about how to post pictures here in the forum so I thought I would make a how-to guide.
First, you need a place to save your pictures on the web. There are a lot of places out there, but in this example I am going to use Photobucket. You can go to photobucket.com
and sign up for a free account. Once you have an account you need to upload your photos.
Once you are logged into your account you should see this:
-Click on the "Browse" button and navigate to where your picture is stored on your computer.
-Click the name of your photo once you find it.
-Click the "Open" button.
Repeat the above process if you have more than one photo to upload to the web.
-When done, click on the "Upload" button.
Now the picture is uploaded to Photobucket and now you can use it in any post in any forum that allows images to be displayed. Now that the picture is ready for use you'll see it on your screen, similar to this:
Notice there are four fields below the picture:
Email and IM
The one we want is the IMG Code. Photobucket makes it fairly simple, just click in the field to the right of the words IMG Code and the image text is copied to your local computers clipboard, like so:
Now that that text is copied to your local machine you can go into the post you are either creating on the forums, or a reply, and copy your text there. Type your message, your story about your hunt or whatever, and them simply paste the text by hitting the ctrl key and the v key on your keyboard at the same time. It will look like this:
Click the preview button and you'll see what it looks like, and if it all lays out like you wanted then you are good to go and can go ahead and hit the submit button to submit your new post or reply.
Hope that helps.
