    Help -- I keep attaching JPG's to my threads, but I see lots of people post 2, 3, 4, 5 even 10 gorgeou pictures right within the body of their thread. How do you do that???

    Photo hosting sites such as Photobucket, Image Shack and the like. There awesome once you use them.

    It's all about the [ i m g ] tags. Photobucket is nice because it gives you those links right below the pictures in your albums.

    First thing is that your image must be hosted on a website somewhere, like photobucket or anywhere else. As far as I know "attached" pictures are being uploaded right to Talkbass.com and stored on their server while the other kinds of pics that you're asking about are already stored on a "remote" server aka. another website..

    To make a pic appear in your thread the first thing that you need to have is a unique URL to where the picture is stored.

    For example I just Google'd "bass player" and found an image to use. I copied the link to where that image is hosted, the link below is the one I'm talking about:

    http://www.merryswankster.com/images/LB's bass player.jpg

    Now, if you take that same link and wrap it with the [*IMG*]insert link here [*/IMG*] tags (remove the asterisks) you will get this:

    LB's%20bass%20player.

    You can also click the little yellow button that looks like it has some mountains on it with a little round circle floating above them. That's the button to "insert an image".. Just click the button and it will ask you for a URL, insert your link and voila, you have an image!

    I hope that helps and makes sense!

    If you make a photobucket account and upload pics to it you will see what Superduck is talking about. Photobucket kindly gives you the exact code you need to insert your images into threads like this!
