    Question How to post a image.

    There are multiple image hosting web sites out there, I am going to use Photobucket in this example.

    You have an image on your computer that you want to post to this web site. You must first send, or upload, the image (file) to web site that will HOST your image. HOSTing your image means they have it available on the Internet for many people to see by simply typing in the web address, or the URL.

    You'll need to create an account on photobucket.

    http://register.photobucket.com/

    Once registered, go to my albums > albums and uploads

    Click the BROWSE button (there will be three) and after the window pops up locate your image on your computer.

    You can upload three images at a time. That is why they have the three browse buttons. You can just do one image if you like.

    Now click the UPLOAD button. The file is being sent to photobucket. Depending on your Internet access speed and size of the image, it could be a short wait or a long wait.

    You can now fill in the title, description, tags etc... if you like.

    Then click the "return to album" button

    You will be back on the same back that had the three BROWSE buttons, but this time you'll see the image you just sent (uploaded) below the buttons.

    Move your mouse over the top of the image.

    A box will appear below the image. Look and you'll see "IMAGE CODE".

    Move your mouse to the box to the right of "IMAGE CODE" and click

    A small box will appear saying COPIED.

    Now go to xjtalk.com and click the post button. Right click in the area that you would type your text and pick "paste"

    You will now see something like this....

    [ IMG]http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu345/Xjtalk/crazycar.jpg[/IMG]

    I have placed a space in the IMG tag otherwise it would display the picture.

    That is it! You have inserted an image into your post.

    I would recommend that if you are placing multiple images in a post you put the image on a new line, perhaps with a black line between them. Like this...

    [ IMG]http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu345/Xjtalk/crazycar.jpg[/IMG]

    This will make it easier for people to view.

    Thanks Muddy. This should answer many questions for those unfamiliar with posting into forums.
    Hey bubba get your hand off my ass,

    Some days it is just not worth it to gnaw through the leather restraints.
