Inserting Pictures

Post by catatac » Fri Apr 30, 2004 8:28 am

Can someone give me a quick run-down of how to insert a picture with my post? The image is on my desktop. Thanks in advance! :D


Great time to be a BOBCAT!

Unfortunately you need to have it online somewhere, such that you can type a url into a web browser and view the picture. Once you can do that, then just click the "Img" button when typing your post, type in that url, then hit the "Img" button again. Submit your post and voila, your pictur shows up in your post.

Thanks Kmax. Don't some sites host images for people for free?

I'm sure there are some out there, perhaps a quick google search would find you something. Sorry I honestly can't say as I have always had some place on the web to call home and use for this sort of thing so I have never really had to look for anything like that.
