Posting pic question???

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by caesarbass, Jul 21, 2005.


  1. I was wondering how to post a pic other that going through the whole "manage attachments" thing? I always have to shrink my pic down to 600X400 when I attach a file. Is there anyway around that?
    Thanks. :confused:

    If the pic in question is hosted on a website that will allow external linking, you can post the picture through web link.

    The examples you linked to are of people inserting an image from another website into their message. If you see a pic on another website of something, you can insert a link to it in your message so that it shows up in your post. Some websites do not allow this though, and you will get a nasty message about stealing bandwidth if you try it. :)

    What silent method is suggesting is for you to create your own account at Photobucket and upload your personal pictures. After you do that, you can link to them through your posts by using the picture icon when creating your post instead of attaching an image.

    Click on the picture itself on photobucket. It will give you the option of what to use to post your picture. In this case, I used the tags.

    PS, sweet looking bass!!! :)

    I'm going to have to give this a go later. I've been wanting to post pics like that for a couple of years now.
