adding a photo

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

you need to upload it somewhere else.. say on your own webspace or you can use somewhere like photobucketwhich is free

then save the address of where your image is.

then when you are writing a post hit the Img button, paste in the image address then hit the Img button again .

example. i have a picture on photobucket here http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh21 ... harona.jpg

and if I use the Img button as stated above it looks like:

try it with my image if you want to have a practice.

It's even easier than that...

On Photobucket, when you upload a photo you will get a set of codes under it... all you need to do is click the forum code (it is the one that starts [img...) - it will automatically copy the link, then you just paste the code into your forum entry.

Just a short cut of what Red said :wink:

I use piclynk, it's also free but seems to work better on talktalk/AOL than photobucket does.
