How Do I Post Pictures ???

Unread post by Humpy » January 22nd, 2006, 11:23 am

How to post a picture to this forum.


Before you start, you will need to get your picture(s) hosted on a website somewhere & be able to view those files through the internet.
Some sites that will host pictures for you are as follows
http://www.4x4world.com.au/forum/
http://www.4wdlinks.com.au/gallery/
http://www.photobucket.com/

1, Find the URL of a picture.
What I do to get this is find a pic, right click on it & select properties. The full url path will be shown.
Click & drag over this (including the http part) & once the full path is hightlighted, right click again & select copy.
2, Put the link into your message
You can do this by right clicking on the text part of the screen (where you can type) & select paste.
3, Now you want to make the url into a picture.
Click & drag over the full url path you have just pasted in, highlighting it.
Then click on the Image button.

Your code should look like:

Code: Select all


[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/Tiny4x4/aaem05.jpg[/IMG]

To test it, click on Preview.



If posting a picture to a site & then linking it to here, please try to keep the file size below 100kb.

Q. How do I add the fancy Smileys?

A. Post them in as a picture, check out these sites to find what your after

Open your Profile (button at top of page under main banner)

Enter the address of your image in the Signature: window, the same way you would for pictures in the rest of the forum. The image can be centred by placing [ center] around the text [ /center] without the spaces

Click Change profile and youre done :D

Please limit your signature pic to 100k and 100pixels wide 600pixels high, for the safety of dial up users ;D
