Hello

A few people have wanted to know how to include photos in their messages on this forum. I thought it might be useful if I explained how to do it. I've tried to explain it as fully as possible, but if I've missed anything please let me know.

You can't post messages directly as you probably know. What you have to do is to upload them to a photo-sharing website and then "share" them from there. I am going to use Photobucket as an example but feel free to use whatever you want.

Step 1
First sign up for a Photobucket account, if you don't already have one. You can do this here

http://photobucket.com/login

This what the screen looks like



Step 2
Having signed up to Photobucket, you can now upload your photos from your PC. To start, click the 'Upload' button shown below.



Step 3
You will need to know where your photos are stored on your PC - mostly, by default, this will be in 'My Pcitures'. Browse for the photos and select the ones you want to upload. (To select more than one at a time, hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard while clicking on the photos required). Click the "Open" button.



Step 4
Having uploaded the photos you want, you will see reduced-size versions of them in your Photobucket album. Now, if you hover your mouse over a photo (without clicking) you will see a panel pop-up as shown below. Move your mouse cursor to the bottom box labelled "IMG code" and click. The text in the box will change temporarily to say "Copied".



Step 5
If you haven't yet created the new message on this message board that you want to include your photo(s) in, do it now. Then simply put the mouse cursor where you want the photo to appear, and click the right mouse button. You should see this pop-up panel. Choose "Paste" and it will insert some gobbldegook beginning with the text "[IMG]".



Step 6
Either click "Preview" or "Submit" to view your post and your photo(s) should display.

I hope this helps.

Something which has caused some confusion is where members have uploaded photos to Photobucket (or another photo-sharing website), loaded them onto this forum and later deleted them from Photobucket.

If you delete your photo from Photobucket it will no longer be visible on this forum. This is because you are not actually transferring or uploading anything to this forum: you are rather 'pointing' to the photo on Photobucket. If it is deleted then there is obviously nothing to point to.
