Due to the recent changes in Photobucket's T&C's I have decided to write a new guide to posting pictures on the forum.
Unfortunately this does mean that any pictures currently posted via Photobucket will eventually stop working on the forum.

This guide is based on using www.imgur.com, I chose this one because it is free, was designed with hosting external links from day one, and is simple enough to use. There are of course other picture hosting sites out there, the method will be similar but I am not going to write a guide for all of them.



Step 1.

Open your favourite web browser and go to


Click on the Sign Up link in the top right corner


Fill in the relevant information and create yourself an account.


Step 2.

Log in to said account and go to Images in the menu under your username.



Step 3.

Click on the Add Images button.



Step 4.

Click on the Browse button



Step 5.

Select the pictures you want to share with the rest of the world and click on Open.


You should now have some pictures uploaded to your account.



Step 6.

Click on one of those images and you will see the image and a list of "links" down the right hand side.


Click on the BLUE Copy button next to the BBCode Link.


Step 7.


Come back to the forum paste this link into your topic/reply


Like so.



Repeat steps 5-7 for each picture you want to share.

When you are done click on the Post New Topic/Reply button




Done.



Ben.

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity
