There are several ways to post pictures here, from easy to awkward. I
must say though I do find it odd that people are posting pictures of
projects in the forums instead of in their showrooms then linking to them. If you put the
project in your showroom it is there to be seen forever. Once it has
disappeared off the first page of the forum it will be never seen
again. My own opinion is that it is more useful to link to your
showroom page rather than just posting projects, keeping the forums as
an information resource instead of an alternative showroom.
1. The easy way.
The forum software allows you to post an image directly, but it will
only appear at the bottom of your post after whatever you write. When
create or reply to a message there are 4 tabs at the top of the page.
Choose the options tab and click on the add/update button. This allows
you to load an image from your hard drive and it will be uploaded to
the forum from
your PC. There are limits though, the image must be no bigger than
200kb and the file type must be a jpeg with the file type as .jpg -
.jpeg or no file type will not work.
2. Remote hosting.
A more roundabout way, but you can put your images wherever you want in
your post. Your ISP will give you some webspace as part of your
connection, or use
an online image host such as www.imagehosting.com. Note the web address
of the image.
To insert the image in the forums just put the web
address of the image between [ img ] and [ /img ] tags (without the
spaces in them). For example
[ /img ]
with the extra spaces removed displays this:
3. Posting images in your showroom.
It's a bit complicated as the site is set up so no one can easily
remote link images from the showrooms. Find a picture in your
showroom you want to post. Like this one http://www.tamiyaclu...006083535_1.jpg
Right click the image and view the properties. Highlight and copy only the end of the link img12689_14042006083535_1.jpg
Then you need to add this code in front of it
[ img ]http://www.tamiyaclu...es/yourTCmember
number/yourimagelink[ /img ] without the extra spaces. In
this case you will end up with this
[ /img] ( with the extra spaces removed)
Which will appear like this
