I have been asked this question so many times I thought I would do a posting with simple instructions.

Forums look so much better when the images are embedded in the story rather than as attachments…

The first thing you have to do is reduce the size of your pics downloaded from your camera as most of them will be way too big for the web… a simple and free picture conversion software package is PIXresizer and it can be downloaded free from the following address…

Image resizing, do it with PIXresizer

I suggest you convert to JPG format (most of them will already be in that format) and you reduce them to 800x600 or 640x480.

Load your photos to a site that will host them. There are many to choose from but I suggest Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket because it’s simple to use and is forum friendly!

The nice thing about Photo Bucket is that once you have uploaded your pics you can move your mouse over the pic and select the “IMG Code” button and it will copy the code for the picture and then you can then just PASTE (Control-V) into your forum message and bingo!

Thanx Rob. Now for the old dog and new tricks part. :blue-lol:
Ok, will have to post from home as photobucket is blocked from work server. :blue-sad:
Thanks rob,

i can now finally load a picture!

Whoop Whoop
Ok photobucket keeps giving me an error when I try upload.
Upload failed error. :blue-cry:
i normally have this site open <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
which makes it so easy to load a pic...if you go to this site you will see dave has a tab at the bottom of the reply "tinypic" you just click on it upload the pic right click copy and you can paste a pic into any forum...

i just find photobucket such a mission have to log etc...this tiny pic tab dave has at the bottom of the reply just makes life so much easier...rob you should find out how he did it and put it in this forum or any forum for that matter...then even technically challenged people like me can do it.
