    HOW TO POST A PHOTO

    There are two options for posting photos. You can either upload them from your own computer, or link to photos that are hosted on another website.

    Posting a photo by uploading from your own computer

    1) Click 'Upload a File' at the bottom of the post

    2) The photo will appear under Attached Files at the bottom. Click to insert your photo as a Thumbnail or as a Full Image. The image will be inserted at the cursor.

    Posting a photo by linking to a photos posted elsewhere on line.

    1) Make sure the image you are linking to is less than 500 pixels wide, otherwise it will distort our forums.

    2) Right click the photo, and choose Copy Image URL, or Copy Image Location (the exact wording will depend on your browser)

    2) Click on the 'mountain' icon in the toolbar

    3) Paste the URL into the box and click Insert. The photo will appear at the cursor point.

    If your photo host has an option for copying 'BB code' you can paste it directly into the post (not using the mountain icon).

    The mountain icon option will only work with image URLs. If you see [ IMG ] after posting the url you pasted is not linking directly to an image.
