A lot of people upload their photos to off-site hosting like Photobucket or Imageshack (an easy process, you just need an account at one of the sites, and then there are guides there to uploading if you need help), then use tags like:

Code: Select all

Then just put that forum code wherever they want the photo in their post.

What ^ said, i personally use photo bucket, its fairly simple and i think easier than imageshack because i get popups when i click on photos from imageshack, and usually i see bigger photos with photobucket than with imageshack. All you have to do is sign up and make a sn for photobucket, upload pics, then when you are creating a topic on spudfiles, and you have finished uploading the pic, there will be a image code, just as ragnarock said, and you copy and paste that and then your done. Its fairly simple :D

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that.

Photobucket is my preferred site as well. Imageshack is not as nice a site IMO.

Or, you could just be cool and use firefox. Then right click on your picture, and hit copy image location. Then paste it in [img] tags. The only downfall of this is that if the picture stays its original size, so you might need to resize it.

I personaly use "Maj.com" for picture uploads. It is a small hosting site, so it doesn't take ages for a picture to upload onto the site or to have it appear when linked. And yeah, the "[img]"%20goes%20at%20the%20beggining%20of%20the%20copied%20URL%20and%20the%20"[/img]" goes at the end.

If you upload the pictures to Imageshack ( www.imageshack.us ) it gives you code to copy and paste into your forum post which will automatically insert the picture. :)

Peace,

You can always add an attachement, providing it is of compatible type and size.

I won't be that much faster, and as your collection increases there is the chance of sending stuff you didn't want to send.
