OK, here we go :
- find the pic you want
- download it on your 'puter
-make sure the dimensions are right (just right click on the pic from the desktop or anywhere you've put the pic)
- go down the "post a reply" page n' click "browse", then select the pic you want
- add a comment if you wanna
- click on "add the file"
-click on "submit"

Now, if the dimensions are too big, either you find a easy resizing software (I have easycrop) n' enter dimensions smaller than those that are required, or you just go on photobucket.com, upload your pic(s) n' put the link (not with (IMG) ) to the pic so that everyone that isn't lazy can click on it to see the pic !

Have fun ! ;)

You can also upload your pic to a site like PhotoBucket and use the IMG Code. If your pic is too big (640W x 480H) use the resize option at PhotoBucket and save a copy of your resized picture and the use the IMG Code

I haven't posted pics much since the size change, but now I want to and don't understand what's going wrong, so I decided to come here. Now, I'm really confused by clarx's instructions. I don't see any browse when I post a reply nor do I see add file. I have always gotten the URL off of facebook or picassa and selected pasted it to the reply and then selected it and pushed Img. Now, that's not working for me. I get the message it can't determine dimensions of my photo. I made it pretty small it's 226 x 231 pixels. What are the max allowable dimensions?


Thanks.

Roll, you need a photo hosting site like Photobucket Imageshack or Tinypic, etc. Click their UPLOAD button (or it may say BROWSE, which will take you to your operating system's photos file, click the image to select it, and it'll upload to the hosting site. From there, you'll have a menu of preset sizes and/or the ability to resize it yourself, to within 480 pixels high by 640 wide or maximum. Right click IMG CODE to copy, then past into your reply box here on the forum. :wink:

Thanks, I do. Maybe it's cuz I have a Mac now and I had a PC before. Anyways, the photo has been uploaded to picasa and it's small cuz it keep making it smaller thinking that's the prob 186 x 206. So there's nothing that says IMG CODE when I right click, but there is copy image address - it worked that's what I was doing wrong- i was copying the direct link -the url. I should've known when there wasn't any jpg at the end! doh. Gracias, Matchy for the support, phew, I feel much better now; I thought I'd lost my touch.
