    Help!!! uploading photos

    Post by RamothsRider on Fri Aug 30, 2013 11:56 am

    I cant seem to insert any pics and really need an idiots guide!! I have a Flickr account where my photos are posted and have tried copying the BBcode but when i post I only see the code and not the pictures. Can anyone help with this Please? I'm used to just inserting them into messages.

    Thanks Smile

    Ramoth, there should be a button to insert the image when you click on add reply button. Don't just type in the box at the bottom of the thread (it doesn't have all the convenient buttons short cut).

    Right here you can actually have the site host an image! Just copy the code it gives you and paste it on the text.

    You may have to register to use servimg, but it's a decent image hosting site. I've used it for awhile now.

    I could never get the hang of posting pics either. So personal pics will need to be put on a site to host still? This Servimg?

    The button I pointed out does that. You can host, get the code paste it without ever leaving the forum page.

    I finally figured it out!!! For flickr you have to got to go to the view all sizes, click on the size you want(I did medium), then right click to copy image URL.

    I did try to share and copy that URL but it didn't seem to work.

    you could save it to your computer and upload it the other way.

    and your welcome Dolphyn!
