Thanks sable. jpmcwjr is totally right, some prefer written instructions, so we appreciate your effort.Nice video! It would have saved me the time and effort of writing out instructions, old school. This video was posted while I was on vacation so I wasn't aware of it.
You are right, jpm. Although I don't erase the http and use ctrl c/ctrl v instead of right mouse click, I emphasized those 2 actions in the videos to make it more clear. Otherwise, some would get really confusedOne clarification that will save every one a few seconds each posting of photos: You don't need to erase the http// in the IMG box first; it's already highlighted, so you can just past the URL over it.
Sometimes shorter is good too.If you want to use the site's album (images tend to be smaller than hosting site's size, but can be full sized if you remove the pixel limitation, -600x360)
2.) Go to My Account (may have hit Home button first) and mouse down to Album.
3.) Choose Upload Picture (navigate to photo you've given a sensible name to), be sure to then hit Upload.
4.) Go back to Album, click on thumbnail to open full size image. Right click (Windows); Control Click (Mac) and select "copy image location" (its URL).
5.) Return to your reply window in the thread and click on the IMG button at the top of the compose window.
7.) Paste the image location into the window and click OK.
OR, using a third party site:
Once your photos are on a photo hosting site (such as Imgur.com; Photobucket; Postimage; Dropbox, etc.), or on virtually any site, select the full image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) on the image itself, then choose copy image location. Now paste that URL (the full web address, which should end in .jpg) into the IMG box in the reply window of the thread you're posting to.
