Shawn,

I'm going to assume you have no "webspace" (as in, your internet provider does NOT give you internet space to upload files to).

That portion (the place to upload files to) you will have to get help locally for, eg: your internet provider). or Photobucket.com is another good example of "webspace".

As far as posting pictures here, the box you type messages in (with the smilies on the left, and a bunch of buttons above where you would type). In the photo below, look for the big black arrow.

The line of text that posted my image of what I'm typing for you looks like this:

http://www.inetlink.ca/a31ford/photo-post.jpg

EXCEPT there are the portions that tell this message posting software (how to handle the special line of text, instead of simply listing it as text).



OK, so now you have seen a photo of something within a message that was posted, here is another example




this photo above is located on the internet at http://www.inetlink.ca/a31ford/kohler-light-plant.jpg BUT, if you don't use the special commands above (see black arrow in first picture) the location is only text within the message you are typing, it's the special commands that tell it to "place photo here" so to speak instead of simply the text.

clear as mud, right ? Shocked

the line of text without the special brackets changed to non-special brackets so you can see the entire line
{img}http://www.inetlink.ca/a31ford/kohler-light-plant.jpg{/img}

OK, I've changed the first picture.... LOOK at the text IN the photo, it is a picture of the text that posts the photo......

Shawn,

To be able to post pictures you need to upload them to a photohosting website. I prefer Photobucket. It's free, and seems to be fairly user friendly. Once you get them there there is an area under each photo with different address options that you can copy and paste into the body of your message. It is easiest if you have two browser windows open. Then it is just a matter of copy and pasting the option that begins with [img] and ends with [/img].

If you only want to post a few pictures, and you don't want to mess with photobucket you can e-mail them to me and I will post them.

Nice job Greg,
I have added a "sticky" post to the top of the board that shows someone how to add pictures to their post. I may move your example over to it after a few days.

Shawn,
Have a look at the post I've added, it should help you. Joe has some good information on using photobucket to host your pictures.

BTW! This all sounds much more complicated than it is.

Let me know if I can help.

Thanks Greg and Joe I need all the help I can get!

Thanks,
Tony T
