This is one of the most common questions on the forums: How do you post a picture? Below are the 2 basic choices.

Option 1 - Become a site Contributor
For $12 a year you can upgrade your forum membership to "Contributor" which includes photo uploads directly from your computer, not to mention helping support the site. :) Read this thread for instructions or click here to signup.

Option 2 - Use a free photo host or your ISP
1. Free Picture Hosting sites that allow "remote linking" - Here are just a few examples: http://photobucket.com , http://imageshack.us , http://www.flickr.com

2. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) - Most ISP's include some free web space with your paid internet account. So if you're using an ISP like Cox, Earthlink, MSN, Sprint, etc. then you probably already have free space just waiting for you to use it. Check with your ISP for more info on how to access your web space and upload files.

OK, so my picture is on the web. Now what?
Once you have your picture online you need to find it's URL (web address). If you surf to your picture on your web space then right click on the picture, a menu comes up. Go down to "Properties" and left click on that and it will show you a bunch of info including the Address (URL). Highlight the entire address, right click and select copy. This is what you'll need to show your picture in the forums.

Now go into the forums and post or reply to the message that you want to show the picture in. Right above where you type the message body are some buttons. Click the "insert image" button (screen shot below) A window will pop up. Type in or paste the URL you copied earlier.

Can I post a picture from my computer?
No. The picture has to be already on the web somewhere. (The exception is that Contributors can upload photos directly. See option 1 above.)

That's about it. If anyone can think of anything to add please post it. (But please don't use this thread to test your pictures. Start a new topic in "Test and Help" for that)

Thanks!

I don't think it likes the special characters (ie the parenthesis) Try one without and see if it works. I haven't changed anything on my end.

I just downloaded some pic’s into a thread and there were thumbnails with them to open larger versions, are the thumbnails new and will this be how it is now?
Because the pic’s I downloaded into the same thread last week doesn’t have thumbnails but have links that need to be opened to view the pic.
Just wondering, Francois.

Yeah, the thumbnails are new and I'll probably keep them that way. It's easier on the server loads and people with slow connections.

Any pics attached prior to last night (when I did the forum upgrade) will be links and any new pics will be thumbs. There is a conversion that will update all old pics to thumbs, but it's really, REALLY server intensive and takes several hours of solid processing time. So I'll need to wait until off-peak when I have some free time to babysit it.

Actually no one can post pictures in their signature. Signatures are text only on this forum.

Craig, I see all the photos in your ad. Did you figure it out or am I missing part of your question?
