Post How to include pictures in your message Reply with quote
You cannot upload pictures directly to the forum.

Instead you need to have the picture held elsewhere at a location easily accessible on the internet, and then include a link from your forum message to the picture you want to display.

I can hear you switching off already - wait, it sounds complicated but in fact it's easy!

You may already be using a picture hosting site, but if not then may I recommend http://www.photobucket.com

You will need to register (its exactly the same as registering here, you need a username and password - nothing else) and it costs nothing.., nada, zilch, zip.

So you simply upload your picture to PHOTOBUCKET and then follow these instructions to create the picture link:

- Check the box above the image you have uploaded and wish to see on this messageboard.
- Click "IMG code" and you will see that the link is automatically placed on your clipboard.
- Return to this forum and paste it into your message.


Job done!
- the picture will now appear when anyone views your message.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the more adventurous of you, who may wish to create a clickable thumbnail in the message body, which then displays the picture in full size, in another window you can do so by following the instructions below:

In this instance I am presuming that you are using PHOTOBUCKET:


- Check the box beneath the image you have uploaded and wish to see on this messageboard.
- Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click the "Generate HTML and IMG code" button
- Copy the resulting code in the "IMG Clickable Thumbnails for Message Boards" box onto your clipboard.
- Paste it into your message.


You will then generate a thumbnail image of the size of the Derwentwater jetty picture shown below, which will enlarge on a new page when clicked.



Good Luck!
Andy
