|Hi to all
To show your photos on this site you will need to have an account with a provider that has an image hosting service.
You will need to have your photos that you wish to upload, sized at 640 pixels wide, on your computer. You can resize them with whatever software you are using on your own PC and save to that size.
All images are to be no larger than 640 pixels wide – Otherwise larger sizes distort the web page layout. (Not everyone has a giant monitor to look at!)
Here are 3 , that are FREE , of the many that are available.
Step 1 – Create your own account with any of the above.
Step 2 - Upload your resized photos (640 wide) from your computer using the instructions provided by the host service.
Step 3 – Check that the uploaded image (on the hosting service) is still sized at 600 pixels wide.
- If not then resize , save and/or replace original.
Step 4 - Copy the URL code for the image required.
(This can be either a thumbnail image or full size [640 wide] image
You will note that the above link does not have the image code’s – [img] and [/img]
They need to be added thus
[img] ... The image link as above.jpg [/img]
You copy the image code that you require and then paste that into the message that you are going to post onto the forum
“Blah , blah, blah”
And there you have it.
Before you finalize your completed message, there are 2 boxes at the bottom; they are - ‘Preview’ and ‘Submit’.
Please Preview your message and check that all is in order and that the message is what you wanted to say, it’s all spelled correctly and makes sense, and that your photo is showing.
If all is OK, then press submit and your post will be displayed correctly on the forum.
If you are having problems then contact the administrator at
