The easiest method to post pictures I've found is to use Image Shack (click URL below).

The method I use is as follows (read the green boxes on picture):

Once the pictures are loaded, it should give you a screen like this:

To resize huge images from digital cameras before uploading - use:

ive used that for years wicky, it's a great app.
right click an image and you will see a 'resize image' tab.
use advanced options to make avatars and stuff - very good, and free :D

bumpage - seeing as folk are still asking how to add pics....

to add pictures to posts -
install http://toolbar.imageshack.us/ - easiest to use imo.
copy the direct link and paste it between the brackets when you click the Img tab when you're posting.
or write {img}paste image here with no spaces{/img} - but use square brackets, not wiggly ones.
job done.
resize images to 800/600 or 640x480 though or they won't display fully.
imageshack will resize them for you, or use microsoft image resizer - its great (and free!) :thumbup:
you can get it here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... ySetup.exe

to use the resizer, install it, then right click your image - you will now see a new 'resize image' tab in the drop-down box.
use it.

to add youtube vids - copy the complete link of the vid - past the link between the brackets when you use the 'YouTube' tabe while posting.
or type {youtube}paste entire youtube link here with no spaces{youtube} - with square brackets instead of wiggly ones.

job done :thumbup:

Hi,

I have followed the instructions to the letter. I must be missing something the photo does not display in my post. Is that because its just a link to Imageshack.
I want the photo to display in the post as shown with other members. This is doing my head in, please can someone advise me how to do it! :?

Heres what I have done as per instructions. [img][IMG]http://imageshack.us/a/img407/3652/img1531rl.jpg[/img]

Thanks!!
