    Okay, I am a moron when it comes to computers. I am trying to follow Shipwreck's instructions but having no luck. I have been playing with this for a month and can't figure it out. Help please.

    I'm not sure what you are doing wrong.

    You have the [img] code correct as I see a red X. That means the URL is wrong for it or the image was deleted/renamed.

    First, make sure that the photo is not too HUGE.

    Then, upload it to this site:
    http://www.imageshack.us/

    There are other similiar sites, but you do not need an account at this site.

    Then, copy the exact URL of the photo.

    Next, come here and put the "[IMG]" tag on the front

    and "[/IMG]" tag on the rear of the picture link.

    EXAMPLE: [IMG]link[/IMG]

    Leave NO spaces between the link and the tags!

    And, that's all there is too it




    I quotedthe above from Shipwreck.

    At imageshack to the right of your pics there is a line that says "Get codes for Forums". I copied that link to the thread and did the [IMG] and [/IMG] thing. Why can't I just copy and paste like everybody else. I didn't realize that I would have to jump through hoops to show off my toys.

    You should only have to copy and past the code from the popup that appears after you click "get code for forums". Don't add any IMG tags, they are already added for you by Imageshack, don't make any changes at all to the code that you paste.

    The way Bruce explained it, your code should look like this in your reply field...

    [URL=http://img166.imageshack.us/i/0000467.jpg/][IMG]http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/5048/0000467.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    If you want to use the "insert image" option provided by this forum then use the "direct" link code from ImageShack so the code looks like this in your reply field...

    I think that will be the only photo you will see in any of my posts. This forum is GREAT, but the whole "uploading photos via NASA rocket ship" is not for me. Copy, paste, or browse. Please press one for English.

    However, thanks for your help guys.
