That's me just joined so that I can post some shots. Have looked on the FAQ, looked for stickies and the likes to find out HOW to post photos. Well, I can't find anything about it. Maybe it's there and I'm just Dan Flynn....

So, HOW do you post photos to the forum ? Is it just a case of plamping them on or should you use a photo hosting site like photobucket or something and just post links ? Also, what are the rules concerning photo dimensions and file sizes ?

Cheers

Widmeister

widmeister.

You need to host your images somewhere, so use Photobucket, Flickr, Tinypic or whatever
and post the pics on here via the image tags - e.g. All three of the above are free and allow
you to create a personal account.

Maximum size shold be 1024px wide, but can be more for panoramic shots.

You can choose the photo size from the all sizes tab above your photo and pick the one that fits nicely on the screen medium or large should be fine.

Copy the photo's URL from below it and then follow these instructions on how to post it:-
