Hotlinking prohibited - How do you insert/attach images here?
 
This isn't a TF question, I'm just too dumb to find out where exactly should I post it...feel free to move it to anywhere appropriate if you please...

I just need some instruction on how to insert photos into your post and have them displayed an imbedded image between text lines?

At the moment I can only attach them and have them listed below the text section as thumbnails with superlinks. I don't know if it's just me or what.

Upload to an image website (for example Imageshack, Photobucket, Tinypic)

Then from there you'll receive a url to the image.
Now, if you know what you're doing extract the actual image link from the "forum code" box and whack it in [ IMG] tags. Otherwise just paste in the code it gives you. (which will be filled with links and advertising and other junk...)

Done.

Thanks a lot! Hursti's been teaching me the same but I'm SLOW...

I'll just keep trying and see if I can finally get there.

i need help uploading pics
 
the title pretty much sums it up.I'm having trouble uploading my pics of my collection.I've tryed just about everything and nothing (well i did get 1 pic up a couple of weeks ago but since then nothing) any tips or help?

How are you trying to upload them?

I would suggest signing up to a website like flicker or photobucket.
When you get the photo's uploaded to one of those website you can deeplink them here.
You hit the picture button and past the url of the actual picture

i feel your pain mate... i had the same trouble a few years ago when i first started checking out forums and stuff.

i would suggest using "tinypic" ( just google that.... you'll find it )

when you're there, all you have to do is:

1: click the "browse" button, it'll open up a window to all your saved pictures.... choose the one you want to post by clicking on it... then press "open" at the bottom.

2: now you'll be back at the main page.... press "upload now" (big green button)

3: enter the verification code (to prove your a person... not a computer...lol)
then press the "upload now" button

4: it'll take you back to the main page again.... except now there are four boxes with script in them. left click on the second one from the top (img codes for forums and message boards) which will highlight the text, then right click... and choose "copy"

now when you create a post here on the forums...

right click the mouse... and paste.

that bit of text is your photo... try preview post to make sure it worked, and hooray! you've posted a photo.

just repeat from step 1 for each photo you want to post.

hope i've helped.... i tried to keep it simple as possible.

pm me if you need anymore help mate... we've all been there

janda :)

Oh dude, Wireless Broadband and Uploading must be bloody painful. :o
I use Photobucket myself and I find it to be fairly straight forwad and easy to use, much like yourself I struggled when I 1st joined a forum in understanding how to do 'this-that and the other thing' but you'll get the hang of it. :cool:
Also, you're not alone in this dude as a couple of other recently joined members needed assistance in how to upload and post pics - we're always here to help though. ;):)

i've now been trying to upload to photobucket for 8hrs and it's kinda stuck trying to upload the last pic.IT just seems to be stuck at 98% for the last 2hrs any suggestions.

What size image are you trying to upload?
I suggest 800x600 pixels. There's usually a resize option on most image hosting sites.
