I am creating this thread to address on ongoing issue: pictures! Everyone has different backgrounds and computer experience, so this should even the playing field. If anything I share is confusing, PM me and I will square you away :)

Sharing pictures on an internet forum is pretty simple, just follow these steps!

1. Find a website to host your picture(s).
a. www.photobucket.com A solid website to share photos, but it IS blocked by many firewalls at most workplaces. Meaning, if SS members are surfing from work, they will NOT see your pictures.
b. *RECOMMENDED* www.imgur.com This is a great website and I currently use it to host pics. It allows you to manage your pictures in different ways, offers different upload options, and overall the website is very user friendly.
c. You can google picture hosting and come up with a million options...

2. Upload your pic(s) to the hosting website of your choosing OR find the address for a picture you would like to use off of the internet. If you want to share a picture that is hosted somewhere else already, some websites allow you to right click the picture and COPY location. If you cannot copy the location, right click the picture, go to properties, and copy the web address of the picture.

3. Input the web address of the picture and format it properly so it will show in your thread.
Use this "coding."

Essentially,

Most decent hosting websites will provide you with the message board/forum sharing code already input, just copy then paste it into the thread/post you are making.

4. Preview your post before you submit it to make sure that the photo information is entered properly. Typos happen, just fix them!

So, the steps in action:

1. My photo is already hosted, http://www.sweetgfx.com/TiS60R.html

2. Since it is hosted, I do not need to upload it. I had to right click on the top photo to get its address, http://www.sweetgfx.com/images/S60 brow (Custom).JPG

3. Without the quotations, I am going to type this:
"[img ]http://www.sweetgfx.com/images/S60%20brow%20(Custom).JPG[ /img]"

Which will come out like this!


And voila, I am sharing a picture!

PLEASE keep in mind, if you upload something on the internet, other people can see it, grab it, and essentially make it their own. Do not upload anything involving your social security number, sensitive information, or anything you would not want a stranger or your grandmother to see!!!!!

That's a nice post but why put this in the R forum?
Since you put this in only ONE forum then it should be in the for sale forums as that is where pictures NEED to be posted

Jimbo, it will go there as soon as I have the chance :)

Do you think the directions are easy enough to follow?

Thanks for your input.

A lot has changed in the 6 years this was written. Hence all the photo links here are broken and photobucket is now expensive. Might be time for an update to this post. Flickr is still an option as well as Adobe cloud of you’re an Adobe Subscriber.
