Posting Pictures (How To)
There are two basic ways to post pictures to the forum. The first method is by uploading the pictures as an attachment. The second is by inserting a URL from an external website into the text box (this method can also be used to add pictures to a PM).Attaching pictures
To add pictures to your post, click on the words beneath the text box that say ‘Attachments and other options’.
Click ‘choose file’, and select the photo you wish to add.
You can add multiple pictures by selecting ‘more attachments’ (below the 'choose file' button) and repeating the process. Then simply click ‘post’. Your pictures will show up on the thread as thumbnails which can be enlarged or opened in a new tab/window.Posting pictures in text box from an external website
This method of posting pictures makes for a nice presentation, and makes for ease in viewing them without having to enlarge attachments. It does require that you post your pictures elsewhere on the web (i.e. Facebook, photobucket, flicker, etc.) first. For this example, I’ll use Facebook.
Pull up the picture(s) that you want to post (make sure it doesn’t have the background that has the comment area on the right; if it does, refresh the page and it should pull up the basic layout). Right click the picture, and select ‘Copy image URL’.
Paste the URL over in the text box of your post, either by pressing ‘ctrl+v’ on your keyboard or right clicking in the text box and hitting ‘paste’. Next, highlight the URL, and click the ‘insert image’ button.
You can add multiple pictures this way too, and once you post, your pictures will end up like this:
This second method is helpful as it works well for posting, but also can be used to add a photo to a PM.
