Ok, I know this has already been done quite a few times, but I'll do it again since people are still confused.

I'm borrowing some of this from madmaxetc. all credit for that goes to him.

Type what you want here...

This is where I want my picture(s)...

Right Click on "Album" and "Open In New Window"
[albumimg]266[/albumimg]

Go to "Your Personal Gallery"
[albumimg]267[/albumimg]

Upload your Picture
[albumimg]268[/albumimg]

Then once it uploads, click on the thumbnail.
Then Highlight and Copy the "BBCode" box
[albumimg]269[/albumimg]

and then Paste it into the Reply window you started in!

The thumnail will apper when you Submit or Preview.

PS:
for the "copy" and "paste" operations, you just have to "right click"


now, for how to post pics from other sites in.

go to any site around, or upload your own pictures to www.photobucket.com.

find the picture you want to post, right click on it, and copy image address.

an example is the Slick60s logo in the top left of the screen. we'll use that.

now. anytime you want to insert any picture (aside from the ones in your gallery as max showed you) you use these little guys. [img]and[/img] You use them to put your image address between.

so... http://fordtruk.com/forums/templates/su ... _phpBB.gif becomes

Image

or, so you can see it:
Code:
[img]http://fordtruk.com/forums/templates/subSilver/images/logo_phpBB.gif[/img]
so you see the [img]goes%20in%20front%20of%20the%20address,%20and%20the[/img] goes behind the address.

and voila! we have pictures in our posts. Anytime you can copy the image address from any pictures on the internet, you can use it in one of your posts. Whether thats the naughty picture of the playmate you fell in love with in 1963, or the Boss 302 Mustang that you left her for.

If you use Internet Explorer, it's slightly different to get the address of the picture.

Right click on the picture, click properties.
Image

Highlight and copy the image address.
Image

thats all. now just paste whatever image address you want in between two [img]and[/img] and youre good to go!

anyone has any questions lemme know and I'll try and help.

now, a few notes on etiquette when using this.

if you copy an address and paste it in between image brackets ( the [img]and[/img] things) whenever someone loads that page and sees those images, they are loading them from whatever website you originally got the pictures.

Basically youre stealing bandwidth from where the picture originally was.

Now, most large sites like amazon, yahoo, msn and others arent going to care if a small forum like ours views a small picture, since its going to get maybe a max of 300 views over its lifetime. But, if you took a 1MB picture from a site like FTE, theyre going to get pretty jerked.

In short, don't abuse "hotlinking" as its called, and when in doubt, use www.photobucket.com or some other site that is specifically for image uploading. those sites are made for people to use to link images around, they get their money through advertisments etc and youre not stealing bandwidth that way.

That is a good expantion on what I did. I think Jim Dog also did a short video on that too.

I don't post pictures from photobucket with the [img] code, I just use the url. This way those with dial up (I know they are still out there) don't have to see the pictures if they don't want to.

Back when I was on dialup, I would just hit the stop button as the page was loading pics if I didn't want to wait...still do, if my DSL is being slow. The typed messages are loaded first, then the pics.
If I start a thread with lots-o-pics, I usually put a dialup warning in the title. :D

Nice tutorial, Ripsnorter! :thumright:

Is there a way to do it which doesn't condense the horizontal width? As posted, it makes that truck look as if it came out of a comic strip :burp:
