How to post pictures W/ pictures of how to

Here is a quick and simple picture and video posting thread for those members and new members that do not know how to post pictures on a forum. I know there is a Sticky with the information already, but i figured i would make it a bit oversimple by adding pictures with directions of how to do it.


Step # 1

Go to www.photobucket.com and sign up for a account, or log in if you already have one.

Upload your images to the internet from your computer.

link from the pop down selection. Right click and select "copy" or hit CTRL+C on your keyboard.

And that is how you post pictures on a Forum. :D:D:D

Even better, get an Elite membership and host your photos on EF's servers. Best $20 you'll ever spend, not only supporting a great site but giving back a small % of how much cash you've saved using the site. $20 is about as much as a can of Nightshades and an LED or two. A drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things.

...The only problem with the linking to picture host is, they are temporary...:(

...We have many threads which the pictures make all of the difference for those who search...Most of the pictures are gone or work intermittently...Being "Elite" and using the Forum to store picture's means they are always available and won't disappear..:biggthump

..We also have another member who did a great little writeup on posting pictures when he was not "Elite"...Sometimes the pictures are there and sometimes they are not...:dunno:

...I'm not privy to the server capacity but I know picture loading and storage is not a problem...

"Want to post in our Photo Gallery? Join the Elite Explorers and you will be able to upload up to 40megs and upload from your camera phone!"

...I upload all my pics at 640x480...This pic size not only makes it easily viewable to other users (laptops and even on phones), but it keeps my allotted space usage to a minimum so I can store more pics...;)

How much server capacity do we have? Just curious how many pics and stuff we can have before it's cooked...
We have PLENTY of space for photos and we can always upgrade to larger hard drives should the need arise.

Uploading pictures directly to the forum will ensure they will always be with your thread no matter what you do with your Photobucket account or other external account. If your goal is to help people over time, or ensure that your trucks pics will always be here, becoming an Elite Explorer and uploading to the site as an attachment or into our Photo Gallery is your best bet.

Right now we have 42,000 photos in our gallery, and they are only taking up just over 2 gigs of space.
