Default How to post pictures in your thread

I dont know if its just me but I hate going into a thread and expecting pictures but then I see links to pictures. Well my tutorial is going to show you how to post pictures (not links) into your posts. This works for all forums and message boards.

1) Open your favourite browser and go to the website TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting


2) Then click on the browse button.


3) Find your picture that your using, in this case I am using the picture "test.jpg"


4) Double click on your image and it it will be uploaded then you go down and change the size to the message board option, or you may leave it as is if you want people to see the detail. (In this case I didn't)


5) This page is optional, you may be confronted by it from lag as I was. Just simply click the view button.


6) After your image has been uploaded you will be given a few options to choose from and the titles for each option is pretty clear, in this case we will be using the IMG Code option. Simply copy it.


7) You paste the IMG Code you copied into the message box like so.


vvv That is the test.jpg

Or, you can use the VB imagehost in the titlebar then cut and paste the link, or simply attach the .jpg directly to your message.

Could you tell us why it 'blows'? I have yet to experience any issues with it!

Maybe if you tell us what is wrong with it.... we can FiXT!

Well, that's kinda the whole point.... we don't really want images larger than that on these pages in order to keep them no-scroll friendly for the majority of monitor sizes.

As far as the file size goes... I can't speak to the "optimum" size we'd want, but serving up large file sizes pisses me of royally when the server isn't keeping up with the volume. I'd rather see 640X480 medium colour depth than wait 3 minutes while it loads.
