How to: Upload pics to the forum

Upload pics:

From comp:

Select Save pics to desktop, select "Go Advanced," Select the paper clip in the toolbar, Select "Browse" then find your pics, and double click the selected pic. Repeat as needed. Then, finally, select upload and shazam, there they are!

From online:

Go to image host, get the direct link, copy it, select the mountain picture in the toolbar on quick reply, paste, press enter, and repeat as needed.

Thank you and good luck!

Ex 1: From Internet.

Ex 2: From computer.



Please keep the photos 1024x___, IE leave it to maintain aspect ratio. It makes it easier to view. It takes like 30 secs to do. Thank you!

To add to what Donmateo said. I grab the link from the image host site and post it directly in the reply box I am writing into. Then I can add more pics and tell something about the pic, example: This is a copy of what my owners manual for my 77 Impala looks like:


Then add more information and another pic such as this 77 Impala limousine:


Though you see the image in this post you don't see the link back to my image hosting site. This is a great way to work on DIY articles.

Thanks for the add-on, 77Impala. This should cover everything you could need to know.

Unscratch that, everythime I go to upload a picture of avatar to my profile, have yet to try it in a post, it says picture is invalid. I've made sure all the pictures are within the pixel guidelines although any capable sofware should be able to instantly shrink a picture to said guidelines. Any help on this would be awesome.

What format is the picture saved as? Is it a JPEG?

Some forums do need to have it resized for the avatars. If your picture you are using is very high megapixel then that might be the problem. This forums software is very capable of auto resizing the pictures for avatars but two other forums I am on are not capable and I use this to fix that problem: Create Avatar

I'll give it a shot and no Don I think it's something like Bit. I'm on my phone right now so I can't tell you for sure but the file type definitely starts with a "B".

I tried to upload some pictures to my album and I did but they say moderated under them and says they are waiting aproval. Do I need to take any further action or do I just wait for them to get aproved? I put some pics up in my garage and they didn't need aproval. I am new to this forum stuff so maybe Im missing something.

Thanks,
Jay

Shortly after my post the pictures popped up in my album. Guess I just need to be a little more patient. Thanks for trying to help kingnutin, appreciate it.
