To help newcomers, here is a short description on how to post piccies to this (and other) boards.

I currently use http://www.tinypic.com/ to host my pictures,
but I have also used http://www.uploadyourimages.com/ in the past. At the moment Tinypic seems easier.

1 - locate the picture on your hard drive.

2 - make sure the picture is a compatible file type (usually .jpg or .gif) and is within the size limits for the hosting site.
I suggest it is resized to 640x480 pixels and keep the file size below 150KB. (If you don't have simple piccie editing softward try http://www.irfanview.com/ a freeware program that allows very simple and quick piccie editing and resizing).

3 - open http://www.tinypic.com/ and you get the following screen:


4 - click on 'Browse', and find the picture file on your hard drive. Click (or double click, depending on your settings) to select the image, then click the 'Upload Image' box in the centre of the tinypic screen.

5 - you then get the following screen:

You will see three options at the bottom right of the screen. These are three different ways to access the image.

6 - right click on the middle option and it highlights the box.

7 - left click on the highlighted [IMG] box, and then just copy and paste the link in your post.

8 - stand back and accept the adulation of your peers.

David, thanks for the lesson.



This pic was taken at Barber Motorsports Museum.

EDIT NOTE: The original large version of the piccie has been replaced with the above resized version of the same piccie just to keep this thread from 'spilling' off the screen.

You have to resize it before you put it up on your web site.

Download this software (freeware): http://www.irfanview.com/ It is a really easy-to-use photo resizing and basic editing program, and I use it all the time for my piccies.

We had so much road crud flicked up onto the back of the top box we had to clean out the lock with an ear-bud :(
Fingers crossed this will stop that happening :D

Thanks David

I use another prog to edit the photos and then upload them to "Photobucket".
The bike photo I did (the one you shrank for me :shock: ) is on 5" x 4" on my PC & Photobucket, but when I upload it to here it fills the whole screen :? :? :?
I can't seem to adjust it :(

Just an FYI.

In the past, I've advised people to use tinypic.com for free picture hosting. For some reason, in the past week or two, I've noticed some very unreliable behavior from them. Sometimes the pictures have been coming back as broken links. It's probably a temporary bandwidth problem, because after hitting the refresh button, they show up again. I DO like them though, as even the first pictures I hosted there are still there, from what I understand, as long as they're getting viewed once in a while.

Cheers.


:)
