first, upload your pictures to image shack or photobucket or something like that, the press [img](copy%20paste%20your%20image%20link%20here)[/img]

so it should look like Image when you are done.

Click on forum, scroll down, depending on what type of cannon you have (Hybrid, Pneumatic, Combustion) click on the matching showcase secttion.

E.G if you have a Pneumatic cannon, click on the pneumatic showcase section. Click the new topic button, now type out the specs about your gun and other info, then below the area you type your info in, there should be an uploader.

Click browse, and browse your computer for the picture you want to upload, then type it description in the description box and click 'upload' or something similar (don't click submit).

Then do that for all your photos, and then once you're done click submit.

Actually PCGUY's last post on this subject is to use the uploader, that way the pictures are here on spudfiles not on a 3rd party service such as photo bucket so that the photos never go away.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

Yeah, use the Spudfiles uploader, it's much easier, and the pictures are here forever :D

Just resize them :roll:

I use advance jpg compressor, can compress 2mb pictures, to 100kb and I don't even notice the quality loss if there is any.

And you can do batch compressing too, I compressed about 800 pictures(1.6gb worth) in less then 10minutes.

if you use the uploader be sure to upload them backwards, because for some reason they come out in the opposite order you put them in

On that note when I use it, it sometimes puts some in random order but keeps the others in the order they were uploaded. :?

Also if you do have trouble with the pictures being to large to upload there is an easy way to do it on any computer.

Go to paint open the file then go to Images then Resize/Skew and then put in a number say 50% then 50% and it will be 50% smaller,eventually you will find the right number that gets them down to a good size.Once you have done it a few times it is fairly quick.

MrCrowley-I have had that problem a couple of times before,it's annoying.
