In order to insert an image within a post. First you must save it to your Hard Drive.
Hit Prt scrn on your keyboard then open Microsoft paint and paste it and save it to your desktop.
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.
