hi
Can't find it in the FAQ but are we allowed to post photos as an attachment in a thread, or do we have to provide links to another website where the photo is?

cheers

Are they naughty pics?

If you look at 'Additional Options' under the Reply To Thread box, you'll see an 'Attach Files' options. But there are strict size limitations. I haven't tried this myself yet, on this forum, so I'm not quite sure how it works.

Anything bigger than that, or if you want more flexibility as to how you place your pictures, you can use one of the various free hosting services and then just post the URL between IMG tags, somewhere in the text. I use Imageshack which is quite quick and easy.

You can post images directly into a thread - you don't need to attach them.

Either use the
insert image icon (in advanced editor mode), or use the image insert code:

Code:
[IMG]image url[/IMG]
Cheers,

Is it possible to add a pic from 'My Pictures' on the pc if it's too big. I've tried the browse from attachments but won't load due to size I suppose.

If I remember correctly, Admin has set up a programme / system (?) that automatically re-sizes pictures to suit the forum in thread posts.

What I did was opened a Flickr account, copy to that site from My Documents, then cut and copy the link (http address) into the insert image link at the top of post thread.

If you use that method, remember the link already has http//: inserted so if you have copied it in your link you need to delete one of them.
