How to upload photos to the forum and in your signature
Hi - andama has asked me to make a post about how to upload photos - so here we go Stork
  1. Find a Free Photo Hosting website -I recommend Image Shack as you don't need to register. We'll be using them in this example.

  2. This is the area which concerns you over at Image Shack

  3. Choose your media (image, video, url, multyuploader - top left). The image button is selected as default.

  4. Click browse to locate the image on your hard drive (make sures its under 1.5 megabytes).

  5. Entering your email is optional.

  6. Check the "resize image?" box and choose your image size from the dropdown menu.

  7. I have highlighted the sizes which should concern you for this forum with the first being the smallest and the last one the largest.

  8. Once selected, click the "Host It!" button.

  9. Once the upload is complete, you will come to this screen:

    Select the first option "Hotlink for forums (1)" and copy it , then paste it either into your post, or into your signature.

  10. Repeat as many times as you like.

  11. Thats it - easy Cool
