To post pics on this site, you need to upload them to a picture hosting website like www.photobucket.com there are plenty otheres, but photobucket is very common and is 100% free to use and supplies you with the correct code to input into forums. It is prefered that you re-size your pics to 640x480 before posting them on this site. You can use Photobuckets editing feature to do this.

so once you upload the pic into the pic hosting website you can link it across to this site. you can just post a link that people can click, however if you want it to be displayed in your post, the following code will be needed

  Code:
 

[img][/img]

the img code needs to have the link or URL for the pic in between, if you use photo bucket you can copy the entire code from the photobucket website

if the website does not have this option, or you cant find the spot to copy the code you can copy the url from the top of the browser and past it in between the img tags

so the url for the img would be say this http://www.outerlimits4x4.com/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif

you then need to put it between the img tags like this [img]http://www.outerlimits4x4.com/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif[/img]

you can type the img tags manually of click the img tab on the top of the post page then paste the link then click the img tab again, this will insert the tags \ code required

ie

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v627/Tiny4x4/postpicsforidiots.jpg[/img]


will out put this

Image

again, if you are not sure, test in the test section

if you still can't manage to post pics.....well nuff said
:roll: [/code]
