Got a question you need answering?


Any general type of question can be asked,but nothing personal,ruse,derogatory or illegal.


Done correctly it could be useful!



Your question would normally be of the nature of:
"how do I?"
"how can I?"

Ok I'll start the ball rolling:

How Do I post pictures on the forum?

Answer:

First two important points to remember:

1. Picture content: The forum administrators have made it known that no pornographic, unsuitable or copyrighted images, cartoons or gif animations should be posted on the site-failure to comply with this could result in expulsion from the forum.

2. You cannot (at the moment) cut/copy and paste directly from your Pc. I advise joining an on-line "imagestation" like Photobucket or Sony Imagestation. Photobucket accepts Gif animation uploads whereas Sony only permits Jpegs.

For the purpose of this guide I will describe posting images using Photobucket.

Photobucket : http://photobucket.com/ is free to join and remains free if you only want to use up to 50 mb of storage space (about 200 average photos and Gifs).Fill in the registration form and away you go.

Images From Your Computer:

In the "Your" Album area of Photobucket click "browse" and select the image you want to upload from the folder on your PC.Click submit and after a short while (depending on you connection speed) the image will appear in the "album." Beneath the image you will see 'URL', 'TAG' and 'IMAGE'.Click in the box next to URl and it will highlight in blue. Right-Click and click "copy".

Next we are going to post the image on the forum.

In the 'Post Reply' box click this button:. An 'Insert Image' box appears. Click in the 'Image URL' box and clear the contents.Right-click and click 'paste' and the address of the image (which you copied in Photobucket) will appear. Click 'OK' and the image should appear in the box.
Note: the image will only appear if you have the full address of the image including "http:"

Images From The Web:

To post an image from the web right-click the image and click 'properties'. Find the text that says 'Address URL' and highlight the address starting "http:" (double left-click and it will turn blue) right-click and click 'copy.'
In the post reply box follow the instructions above under:Next we are going to post the image on the forum.

You can also put these web images in Photobucket by clicking "[ Add pictures from URL ] " in the Add Pictures area of "Your Album"

This is by no means the definitive way to do this and some pictures on the web will copy and paste directly into the forum.It is, however, the way I do it and it works for me

======================================================

Ok you understand how this thread works?

Go for it!Big smile
