Sign up for a picture sharing account like Photobucket (it's free!).

Create some albums and copy your photos into them (uploading files)

Start or respond to a thread (i.e. "the stance thread").

While both the FAQ site and your Photobucket site are open as tabs, find the picture you want to share and select "copy image", then paste into the response. Use the "preview" button before submitting to ensure you selected the correct picture (image).

Hope his helps. It took me several tries before posting the larger images rather than just an attachment (limited by the size of the photo).

basically you can take any image link and just use the image code of [ + img + ] "insert link here" [ + / + img + ]

so lets say you take this link:

then add the [ + img + ] and [ + / + img ]

The addition signs mean: "put them together as one"

and viola

that is a good one, been on this board for a number of years and this is the first time I've seen it, but it doesn' work for me...

let's see by removing +'s

What firefire90 means is put together the the symbols without the "+" signs- combine everything else. If he typed the HTML without the + signs, you wouldn't be able to see it. Try this- quote someone's post with an image displayed and you'll see how it's done in the text of what you're quoting before you submit it.

while putting your pictures in, say, Photobucket and Flickr and pasting them here with an {option} tag is pretty slick, the downside is broken links / missing pictures if there's a change in the account, you change your photo set, reach your free limit, or any other reason. so, if your picture has value in a thread, it may be better to attach it directly. kind of frustrating to do a search and find all the pictures missing because the link to Photobucket is broken

and the bigger downside is the value of the FAQ as an archive for all 2002 goodness is diminished if the picture you need is no longer there.

perfect example here, since Otis attaches directly to the thread, we'll always have a picture of the ass (the gal's, not Otis ;-) ) in the archive
