You will now need to Host the image at a Photo Hosting Site.
I use and recommend Photobucket. It is a great photo hosting site, plus registration is free. Unless of course, you choose the premium service.
> Go to Photobucket
> Sign up > log-in
> Click on the > browse button. Find your image and then click > submit.
> You will then see your pic uploaded
> Three links will show under the image itself.
> Sample Album
> For a small to medium size image. Copy the IMG link.
> IMG Example:
> For a large image. Copy the URL
> This saves on bandwidth. Pages will also load much faster for those on dial-up.
> URL Example: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v317/sca...18/IMG00057.jpg
> Paste the link into your post
> Note: Actually for images that are quite large, as in desktop screenshots. I use the photo hosting site ImageShack. Which is a free service as well. Since it allows a maximum image size of 1024 kb. Photobucket has a maximum allowance of only 250 kb. They will be re-sized if they are larger. And the image will not be as crisp.
Click on Register in the top right hand corner.
Check your e-mail for your activation link
Click on > Browse
Then click on > Host It
Then click on the link > My Images
You will now see that your image has been uploaded.
> copy eiether the Thumbnail Code for forums. The thumbnail code will create a clickable thumbnail.
Example: Clickable Thumbnail
> Or the Direct code. Just under the thumbnail code.
Example: Direct http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/9320/thimg000573fi.jpg
Now if you wish to insert a signature or a small image, that will show in all of your posts. You must do this.
> Copy the IMG link
> Go to your Control Panel @ Bleeping Computer
> On the left hand side go to> Personal Profile > Edit Signature
> For a signature > Paste the IMG link in the text box
> To insert a small image > Paste the IMG link eiether before or after your Signature
> For eiether choice > Click on Update Signature
Note: Images in signatures must also be no larger than 500 pixels wide X 90 pixels high. Also please keep in mind that offensive content is prohibited. This applies to both text and image's.
