No offense but that's not much help, lol.

Go to http://www.photobucket.com and create an account. There you can upload tons of pictures and keep track of them in an album. Upload your pics there. For each 1 photobucket will give you code to post on here with [ img ] tags. Take that code for each picture and put them in your post on this site.

i'm gonna add in a basic run down, though Tinton basically covered it there's some details that are important.

How to post pics

1> Upload the pictures to a hosting site such as http://www.photobucket.com or http://www.imageshack.us

1a> You may want to resize the image to 640x480 or 800x600. Very large images take a while for users with slower connections to download, and also will mess with the formatting of the forum page.

2> copy the Direct Link to the image. This will usually be something like http://img32.imageshack.us/somerandomstuff/picture.jpg. You don't want a link to a web page because that won't show as an image in the forums. These web page links usually have something like .php?image=picture.jpg at the end of them. If you want the picture itself to show up on the forum, make sure you copy the direct link.

3> Make your post, and put the link to the image within img tags like this:

Code: Select all

Lately, I've been using Glowfoto for quick image posting, because imageshack has been slowwwwwww as hell for me the past few months...
