How to post a picture

There are a few ways to add a picture to your post - from your computer's hard disk, from this site's media gallery and from Photobucket (other third party galleries are available).

1. From your hard disk
Start a new topic or, if replying to a topic, ignore the Quick Reply box and click Reply.
Under the main message box click "+ Attachments and other options" and then click into the Attach box. You will be prompted to pick the image from your hard disk. You can add more than one image by clicking More Attachments.
All the pictures will appear under your typing.

2. From this site's media gallery
Click 'Media' from the menu and follow the instructions you'll find i.e. create an album, add a picture to your album and finally paste the SMF ID code into your post.
The picture will appear where you place the code.

3. Using Photobucket, etc
When you upload or view a picture it will have various codes underneith it. Copy the IMG code and paste it into your post.
The picture will appear where you place the code.
