sorry for the new guy question - how does one post a pic? :?:

some boards require the online pic hoster thing (i have a photobucket account) and some you post from your computer itself...

I click on Img button and it looks like it's "bracketing" the cursor in the post, but I'm not sure what to do next????

thanks so much.

Posting an image from photobucket is easy.

Within photobucket, click on the IMG code for the photo you want to post, then just paste the code where you want it in the forum post.

I think you can also do attachments, but I haven't learned how to do those.

OK, so now that you know how, you have to post photos!

Solocanoe, I don't think that you can post a picture in this section. Have a look at my new post in the "about tenkara" section to learn how to post a picture without going through photobucket or another host. The example came right from my PC.

To include a photo as an attachment look to the bottom of the Post page for the Upload Attachment section. Browse to the image on your computer and click "add the file". Unlike Photobucket images, attached images are presented "small" but clicking on them will show the full size image.

A downside is that the images aren't embedded within your narrative.

And they have to be less the 250KB.

So if you have an online cache, it is an easier way to go.

I use Picasa. I use Picasa Tool on my Droid Razr (Android Phone) on most forums. The app uploads pictures from my phone very fast. I'll try to post a picture here via Picasa.
