How To Insert An Image.

Postby agent_orange » Fri Sep 21, 2012 9:02 pm

This guide will tell you how can easily add an image to your posting.

Before we begin, please bear in mind that images must be no larger than 2Mb & not larger than 640 x 480 pixels in dimensions. (If you would like to use larger images please use a third party photo host such as PhotoBucket, and use the Img BBCode).

1) Start writing your post as normal.
2) When you are ready to add an image, scroll down a little till you see "Upload Attachment", which should look like this:

3) First, hit the "Browse" button to select your image.
4) When you have done that, hit the "Add the File" button, this will begin uploading your image. You can add a maximum of three images per post.
5) If you have successfully attached the image, you are now ready to place it into your post.
6) Scroll up again until you can see the text writing area. Just below it is the "Attachments" section.

7) In the drop down list, select the photo you want to paste in. In the screen shot you can see there is only one image to add.
8) Then hit the "Place inline" button and then Bob's your uncle!
You should see some BBCode like this: [attachment=0]nameOfYourFoto.jpg[/attachmenthas been added to your text.
9) You can hit the "Preview" on the left of the "Submit" button to see if your images have gone in ok. Otherwise hit submit your post.
