HOW TO post photos or videos on this site

Postby FastSRT8 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 1:52 am

Guys / Gals,

There may be other ways to do this but this is how I did it with success.

  • go to a picture hosting website such as Photobucket
  • upload your image or video to the said photo hosting site
  • after loading your material, you should be able to click on a link (IMG CODE) to that particular image/video which you uploaded
  • copy that link directly and paste it into the body of your message here
What you should see in the body of your message should be something similar to this with the round brackets replaced by square ones...

(IMG)http://.../DSC00761.jpg(/IMG)
*replace the ( ) with [ ]

That will put your image onto this site.

Cheers

For most discussion forum sites the image has to be hosted somewhere and then linked in the post. There are a few sites that actually take uploads or keep a local copy of the image.
