admin: an update "how to" on uploading images can be found at viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5561
This thread is for practising posting images. The only rule: There are no stupid questions here.
There are lots of ways you can post images on the forum. The easiest way I know (thank you, Wangi) is to sign up for an account at Photobucket
. You'll need to give a valid email address to get an account. If you're using a hotmail address, beware that hotmail may classify email from photobucket as spam, so check your junk mail folders.
Assuming you have an account at photobucket, how do you upload an image to photobucket? Imagine you have an image in your "My Documents/My Pictures" folder called "cows" (or it might be "cows.jpg").
Log in to photobucket. The web site should take you straight to your albums page. At the top of the page is a box which says add picture
next to it. MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS ALSO A BOX TO THE RIGHT SAYING BROWSE
. If it isn't there, click "Upload from your computer" and it will appear.
Now press the Browse button.
A window will open showing you some of the files on your computer. Every computer is different , but you will probably see your "My documents" folder. Double-click on it. Now click on your "My pictures" folder. Keep double-clicking till you see the photo of the cows. Then double click on the cows. The new window will disappear. Now click the submit button on the photobucket page. As if by magic, the picture will appear on screen, with three boxes below it. Click in the third box and COPY the whole text.
Now log in to the forum. Start your new post. When you get to the bit where you want to post the photograph, PASTE it into your message.
Job done. Everyone please join in, share your tips, and practice posting images.
