Picture Posting
« on: May 19, 2009, 04:44:05 PM »
Just curious, I noticed that some pictures seemed to be part of the message, as in the one titled 'all original looking '67 pulling a boat' in the General Discussion area. How can that be done?

I've tried attaching pictures, but had to make them so small they were hard to see.


Thanks

If you have the picture hosted on an website (eg Photobucket, etc), you can link to that photo via [img ]http://www.website.com/pic.jpg[/img] commands.

To attach the files, they don't have to be small to be small files. 800 pixels across is a good size. Try reducing the resolution (aka jpg quality factor).

The second command has to close the first one and requires a / in it to do that, e.g.[/img]. But it still won't work because it's not trying to show an individual picture, but the photobucket album grid of pictures.
