    Default Tutorial: How to Post Photos

    Instructions for Posting Photos


    To post images on the forum you first need to upload them to an image hosting website such as www.photobucket.com

    Step 1 Register or login to your account

    Visit the photobucket website: www.photobucket.com If you already have an account fill in your username and password, then click the 'log in' button. If you do not have an account click the 'join now' button and follow the on screen instructions to create an account.



    Step 2 Choose Images to Upload

    Once you are logged in, you need to select the the images you want to upload. Click the 'Choose files' button. If you do not see this option then select the 'my albums' link from the navigation bar and it should be displayed.



    When you click 'Choose Files' a new window will open showing the files and folders on your computer. Navigate to the photo you want to upload, click on it to select it (it will then be highlighted) and then click the 'open' button. If you want to add multiple photos hold down the Control Key (Ctrl) while you click on the files you want.

    To make finding your images easier you can make your files display as images by clicking on the icon circled and selecting 'thumbnails'.



    When you click 'open' the window will disappear and your images will start uploading. When the upload is complete the screen will refresh.



    Step 3 Copying the Image Code

    The images you have just uploaded will now be displayed below the upload form. Scroll down the page to view them. Below each image are several boxes with code in which is used to display the images. You need the text in the box labelled 'Img'. Click in the box to highlight the text.

    Then right click on the highlighted code and select 'copy' from the options displayed. Alternatively you can select copy from the Edit menu at the top of your web browser.



    Step 4 Creating a Post

    Open up the post on the forum you want the image in. And right click in the box where the text goes. Select paste from the options. The code should appear.



    If you want to check you have done it right, click the 'preview post' button to see how you post will be displayed. Don't forget to scroll down the page afterwards and actually submit your post though!
