Not been on the forum long but i have never had this and i have posted a few pics on this site now.

I click the little image ikon in the menu above 1st (3rd in form the left on the bottom row), then put the little vertical black bar thing that stays in front of your typing (No idea what its called) right in the middle [ IMG ] black line thing [ /img ] i then paste the image i have in their, it has worked so far (Fingers crossed).


Sorry if i am preaching to the converted.

Last thursday i managed to post three photos, that was the first time for ages.Since then i have tried every day with no luck. Tried to work out how Mutley does it, and am now even more confused.

My way works fine for images off the web, but not with personnel pics stored on my pc

My way works fine for images off the web, but not with personnel pics stored on my pc

To use the [ img] http://*[/img] tags, the images have to be posted to a server that will
assign it an HTML address. ie: Http://*

To do this the images need to be posted to someplace like imageshack or photobucket.
Once this is done, click on the image to  view it. If you right click on the image, and
select properties, then a data window will pop up and show an http address ending with .jpg.
copy and past that code between the [img ]http://...[ /img] tags and your image should show up
in your post.

So if you right click on the image below, and select properties, you should see the imageshack
http address.


Imageshack also offers thumbnail codes, and if you use the  "Thumbs" for forums it will
appear like the small image below, but you can click on it to see the full size picture



Of course the link is directed to the imageshack website, and pop up ads are rampant...

If you use photobucket, below the thumbnail image in your gallery, there is usally
a button that can be pressed to pop up a window with the thumbnail or full size picture HTML addresses.
