    I'm having the damnedest time trying to post photos in threads. Used to be a simple process, (right click on image, copy url, click on upload image, paste, boom...done. but now, I just can't accomplish this simple task. I have photos on Google photos and flickr. Try to copy /share image location but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a new trick??
    Thanks folks!!

    Click "upload a file" when you reply to a thread or start one - then point to your local image and upload it.

    Super easy - see below

    I use a separate image host. That allows me to use the same image on more than one forum.

    Using BB Code* (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode) is pretty easy. For an image:
    Code:
    [IMG]http://somedomain.com/image.jpg[/IMG]
    There is some variation in the syntax, and not all forums support all BB Code.
    If you have ever written code of any kind, you can write in BB Code. :)

    There are many. I use Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/), mainly 'cuz:
    • Albums/sets can be created for better organization. :)
    • Whenever I upload an image, no matter how yuuge, smaller versions are automagically created. Sometimes, that comes in handy. :)
