    There are two ways to post photos on the forum.

    DIRECT UPLOAD TO FORUM (PREFERRED)

    The easiest and preferred way to add photos to your posts is through direct upload to the forum. The reason this is preferred is that it ensures that the posts on the site will never lose the photos that are original included.

    VERY IMPORTANT! - Please make sure that each image is no larger than 1600 x 1600 pixels in dimension and no more than 1.5mb in file size. You will receive an error if the image is too large. If you continue to receive multiple errors from multiple attempts, the server will block your account thinking that you are trying to hack the system.

    Step 1. Click on the "Upload a File" button below the posting window. You will be prompted to select the image from the files on your computer or device.

    Step 2.
    Once the image is uploaded, place your cursor within the post window where you'd like the photo to appear and then click the "Full Image" button.

    Step 3.
    Your photo is now inserted into your post and you can continue writing or posting more photos. If you want to remove a photo completely from your post, make sure that you delete it from the posting window and also click the "Delete" button next to the image in the list of "Attached Files" below the posting window. If you forget to delete the attachment it will show up as a thumbnail image at the bottom of your post.

    3RD PARTY PHOTO POSTING

    In order to post images within your posts on the forum you will need to set up a free account with a 3rd party image hosting website like Photobucket or ImageShack. Once you have set up your account and uploaded your images you will need to copy the IMG code from the image that you want to post and paste that into the body of your post.

    Here is where the IMG code will be in Photobucket...

    This is where the IMG code will be in Image Shack...

    Once you have copied (control "c") the IMG code you will paste (control "v") it into the body of your post wherever you would like the photo to appear. Once you submit your post the image will appear.

    If you have the direct link (url) to your image you can also use the image posting button in the posting toolbar. Just click the button with the image icon and then paste the Image URL to your image in the field that appears.
