Since this question comes up often, here is a how to on posting images.

1. Upload your picture from the computer to a free picture hosting site like imageshack.us
2. If the site gives an option to resize your image use an size which is less than 800 pixels wide. For eg. Imageshack gives an option for "message boards" of 640x480.
3. The site will give upload your photo and then give a code to use in forums, like the below.

Code: Select all

4. Copy the code from the site and paste it in your forum post.

I'll update this post with screen shots when I'm feeling less lazy :oops:

People with experience with other websites pls post your "how to"s.

Here is a youtube video of how to.

Yea . . . it's pretty evident some have way less experience posting pic's than others . . . and so you end up having to scrole over 100 miles to reach the other side of the snapshot.
:D

Without being an Orange ;) member, you'll have to upload it on the web someplace and then post a link to it. Google docs is probably the best place.

You might not want to quote the spam when you do that as the links remain and still aid their SEO efforts... :oops:

Apparently it is not possible to link to images wich are hosted at http://bayimg.com/ (BayIMG) ?

The only thing I see is the word "Image".

You need a URL that points directly to an actual JPEG. Your link goes to a page that shows the image. Try this:
Image
I right clicked on their image and copied the image location. Click the "quote" button in my post to inspect the IMG tag.

Thanks!
Should have known that.

But something strange is going on, I didn't see your picture either.
I pasted your direct link in the URL-bar of my browser it shows the pic! When I then go back to this thread, the pic in your post visible!
