How do you upload an image onto a post?

Hi you need to have an online storage account (or whatever they are called) like photobucket etc, they are free. You upload your pic to them and they will have a link for websites (direct link on photobucket)

copy this and then use the Img tab on the top of the conversation box in which you write a post.

Hope that helps, someone may be able to explain it better.

tinypic is a good option too. Upload the picture to them and they provide a link that is simply copied and pasted into the forum post.

You can just use a free service, and I would recommend Postimage.org : http://postimage.org/

Instructions :

1. Click on the link
2. Browse your machine for the picture you want to upload (so you'll need to save it to your computer if you haven't done already)
3. Click on the "Upload" button
4. Click on the actual picture, once it appears after being uploaded
5. It'll then open in another tab
6. Right click it and "open image in a new tab" (if you do that on the previous screen, you'll only open a thumbnail)
7. Right click the URL (address bar) and copy the web address
8. Paste it into the "Img" tool (between the square brackets) in your message

I think I'll sticky this so we don't have to answer it every month like we seem to be doing at the moment :ugeek:
