    1. Picture Tips
    • If possible post pictures of your own bike rather than stock images - the real thing is far more interesting!
    • Take photos against a plain background so the bike is easy to see.
    • Crop and/or resize the picture to make it smaller using photo editing software. (If you want something free try GIMP.) Although the CycleChat software will resize large pictures, big images can still take a long time to download so keeping your photos to a moderate size is helpful.
    2. Instructions for Posting

    Once you have prepared your photos you will need to upload them so they are accessible to CycleChat users over the internet.

    Option 1 - Picture Hosting Sites: Websites like TinyPic and ImageShack allow you to browse your computer for the picture you want to upload and then provide you with a direct link for your image. To post into a message on CycleChat click on the Insert Image button [​IMG] at the top of the message editor. Cut and paste the direct link (e.g. 'http://i22.tinypic.com/148me8n.jpg') into the box and click 'Ok'.

    In your message you should now see a line with your link between 'image tags' ('[​IMG]'). When you click the 'Preview Post' button beneath your message you will see you picture appear. To move the picture to a different place in your message just cut and paste the link and image tags to a different part of your message.

    Option 2 - Self Hosting: Many internet accounts come with free web space to which you can upload pictures. (If you don't know how to use this web space then check your ISP's help guide.) Once you have uploaded a picture you are ready the paste it into a new message on CycleChat. Click on the Insert Image button [​IMG] at the top of the message editor. Cut and paste the direct link (e.g. 'http://barq.org/pics/IMGP0983_med.JPG') into the box and click 'Ok'.

    In your message you should now see a line with your link between 'image tags' ('[​IMG]'). When you click the 'Preview Post' button beneath your message you will see you picture appear. To move the picture to a different place in your message just cut and paste the link and image tags to a different part of your message.

    It will work if you take out the [IMG ]...cyclechat.co...[/ IMG] from around the link to the pic. Click on edit and you'll see what I mean. I hope.

    Embedding an image - help!

    Indeed now all I can get is a question mark. Here's the web address of the image in a Cycle Chat album:
    http://cyclechat.co.uk/forums/album.php?albumid=136&pictureid=804

    Now I will use the image icon and insert the same url there.

    [​IMG]

    Now if I do the same again but remove img

    http://cyclechat.co.uk/forums/album.php?albumid=136&pictureid=804

    The link appears. This doesn't seem to match with the instructions above but I cannot work out what I have done wrong...

    Thanks in anticipation...
