the best way to do it is to use a photo host. the one i use is called photo bucket. its free and easy to use.

once you have made an account and uploaded your photos "in your bucket" you simply copy and paste the image codes that appear below your photos...



no need to use the forums image tool, other wise you will end up with extra image tags around your pic.

one more thing you might like to consider is re-sizing your photos. i use a free tool called "faststone photo resizer". you can resize to any thing you want, 800 pixels wide is good for the forum, and its easy to use. this is how i super impose the steam traction world script on the images.

another good tool for editing photos is Picasa 3. again its a free download and good for cropping and lightening images.

all these are free and safe and easy to use and can be found on a google search. any questions about using the above programs, just ask Cool

most free forums like this have a small amount of space for uploading images onto the actual site itself. i have found that these tend to fill up very quickly and have to be cleaned out, causing the loss of the images. on all the forums i have set up in the past i have disabled this option.

with a photo bucket account you get to manage the images and the links will stay active as long as you dont delete or move the image.

a free photo bucket account will give more than enough space for anyone.

i notice that the forum does have an "host an image" tool. this seems to link you to another photo hosting site. i have not used this. i imagine it is very similar to photo bucket.

there are many more hosting sites/tools out there Cool

When viewing the image on photobucket. You will find to the right a set of link options.

Highlight the /img text box and do ctrl c (windows computers) to copy the link.
Return to your post on here. Position the cursor where you want the picture. Press ctrl v. The link text will appear.
