I'm a big fan of the "NO PICs NO CLICKs" movement
So I figure it's only fair that I talk about how to post pictures in your forum posts ...
How to put pictures in your posts
This little tute will cover two things
1. how to put a picture in your post
2. how to upload a picture to your privateer press forums account
How to put a picture in your post:
You will need:
The URL of your picture (see section 2 below if your picture is only on your home computer and not uploaded to the internet - eg flikr or photobucket account)
To find the URL of your picture you can ususally just ask your web-browser for it.
In Firefox and Chromium if you right click on the picture there is ususally a menu like this
I think Chromium's says Copy Image URL.
I'm not sure about internet explorer, but I believe you can "View image" and then copy the address out of the address bar
How to get the URL from a Flickr account is here
Now that you have the image URL, when you are typing your post, there is a menu of icons at the top of the input section - like this
The arrow is pointing at the "Insert Image" icon.
Click this, and paste in your URL
You should see your image URL surrounded by the IMG and \IMG tags (buletin board tags are surrounded by square brackets )
You can look to check that your image is posting correctly by using the "Go advanced" button and clicking on Preview post.
