    Default Posting pictures.

    When trying to post photos here (or any form) new users invariably trip up with a few common mistakes.

    DO:
    - Use the attachments option when composing your post. This will live forever on the forum and avoids broken links down the road.
    - Use a third-party free image-hosting site. Flickr, Imageshack, Photobucket, Tinypic are common examples. These are usually reliable in the long-term and you can use the link in multiple forums. Grab the [img] code that the site provides, or right-click on the image and use that in the Insert Image option when composing your post.


    DON'T:
    - Try to upload a photo from your computer in the Insert URL or Insert Image pop-up. This will not work.
    - Link an image from Facebook or other sites where your account is likely not completely public. This will not work.

    Failure to read these guidelines may result in good-natured flaming by myself and others. Happy posting!
