    Exclamation ----- How to post pictures -----

    Right this thread will show you how to post pictures of goods you're selling.
    I'v seen a few posts that people say they don't know how to.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Right, you get your pic onto your computer whichever way you do it, scanner, usb, memory stick, etc.

    Save it to a suitable folder and then go to this address.

    http://imageshack.us/



    Click on browse and navigate to your picture and double click.

    The picture's file directory will now be showing in the box.

    Click on host it and it will start to load a new page, don't worry if it takes longer than usual.
    If the servers busy then it can take a few seconds.

    When the new page loads scroll down to the bottem of the page.




    This is the URL that is required.

    ---- Continued ----


    -------------------------------------------------------------

    When you make your post and want to insert the picture, go to the tool bar at the top of the create a message.

    Click on this button.



    A pop up will appear with a box that already has http:// in it, click within the box to highlight the http:// and then paste the URL that you got from the above process.

    You image should now appear where your typing cursor was positioned.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    It's a bit messy and there will most likely be a few spelling mistakes but this should give you the gist of it.
    Hope this helps.

    Sticky would be nice to keep it at the top.

    It just means a web address where your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera etc) gets the information that allows it to find whatever you're looking for be it web page, document, graphic etc. For example you'll find the URL for Caithness.org in your address bar right now (the window right at the top of your browser).

    The first part :- http://forum.caithness.org takes you to the message board index page. The rest of it might look like gobbledygook but it's a kind of code for the browser. Each page on the Internet has a unique URL.

    To find out the URL of a graphic on the web, place your mouse pointer over it and right-click. The pop-up menu might vary from browser to browser but you're looking for something like: properties. Highlight the text where it says location. Right-click and select copy. Now that URL is in memory and you can now paste it wherever you like.

    Default success!

    By George, i think I've got it! Hint; phorobucket is easier, cos u can use copy and paste for the link, don't bother with the wee 'insert imag' icon.
    With imageshack you have to use the wee icon, and the copy/paste doesn't work with it for some reason.

    is that the mountain used in the paramount movie thingy?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    I don't think so Rheghead, it's Mount Lassen over Lake Almanor in Northern California.

    Katarina - I got quite excited when I saw this picture (its lovely, by the way). It looks like an island starting with S just off from Rhodes. Beautiful place. Was there a few years ago.
