Posting pictures in a thread

Posting pictures without using a picture hosting site

Since the forum upgrade, there is now no need to use an external host, such as "Photobucket". Pictures can be directly uploaded from your PC, Photo Albums on this site, the internet etc.

Please ensure that when doing so you are not infringing any copyright.

Before you can post pictures on the forums, they will need to be JPG, GIF or PNG format.

The details of how to post follow, but please bear in mind that this method is different to the one used on the old style forums and the photos uploaded  will appear as click-able thumbnails at the end of your post. The wording of your post should reflect this. Once the viewer selects a thumbnail, they will be able to view a larger picture than previously possible.

Once your post has been composed to your satisfaction, having previewed it, look just below the message box, where you have typed it. You will see "Additional Options" Click on this.

You will now see 6 small boxes and below them the word "Attach" and a longer white box, with "Browse"to the right of it. Click on "Browse" and then navigate to your photo and click on its icon. This will select it. To attach further pictures, click "more attachments" Once all pictures have been selected, click on "Post".

You will not be able to see your photos in "preview".


Posting pictures you have put on our "Gallery"

Pictures can also be loaded up to our Gallery link at the top of the screen below the main index.

You can then copy the IMG tag and paste it into your post.



Please contact a Moderator if you have any problems.
