    Ok guys I get a lot of people asking me how to post pictures on the forum. You can either upload them as attachments directly to the forum by clicking the [​IMG] button in the post editor box or...

    To post a picture you found on the internet:

    1. Right click on the picture and select "View Image Info"

    [​IMG]

    2. This will open a new screen which will give you the direct url link to the photo. Copy this direct url link.

    [​IMG]

    3. Come back to the forum and click the [​IMG] button. Paste the image link you copied in to this box:

    [​IMG]

    **All the [​IMG] button is doing is adding IMG BBcode tags around your picture url which you can do manually as well by putting [ IMG ](no spaces) in front of the url and [ /IMG ](no spaces) at the end of the url.

    To Share "your" pictures I recommend opening a Photobucket account at Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket. You can upload all of your pictures to Photobucket from your computer and keep them online in your album.

    1. Once you have uploaded your photo to Photobucket, open the picture and copy the IMG code for the picture and paste it in to your post(that's it!):

    [​IMG]

    How to post Youtube Videos:


    1. YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE THE YOUTUBE BUTTON ON THE FORUM.

    2. All you have to do, is copy and paste the url of the video you wish to share, and post it directly in to your post. That's it, do not add any additional tags or BBcode.

    [​IMG]

    ** If your video does not work, make sure you are taking the direct url of the video from Youtube. If you are viewing a featured video or a video within someone's Youtube channel, the url code will be different and will not work. You need the direct Youtube link which is found when you view the video from a public Youtube search.

    From an iPhone you can post saved pictures from your Camera Roll as an attachment, either surfing directly on the site or using an FRF supported app like TapaTalk.

    In addition to using your own original photos, you can save any picture from the web to your iPhone Camera Roll and follow this process to post it.

    If you need further clarification about posting pics or YouTube vids from an iPhone, ask them here and I'll help.

    If someone has similar questions about posting from another type of phone, ask them here and someone else who owns that brand will surely chime in with an answer.

    Any idea why my pics come out so small when I post them? They are 2 to
    5MB but don't show up large on a post. This happens using Photo Bucket or straight from the pc.
    Thanks

    if you post the pictures as attachments, they will show up as thumbnails. if you post directly from Photobucket or any image hosting site, you should be using the code and pasting it directly in to your post.

    Even still, the forum will automatically resize pictures to a manageable size, then you can click them to enlarge to full size. Do you want to test in this thread and show me what you're talking about?
