Here is a little “mini-guide” to photo hosting and posting. There are three ways to place photos into the forum: 1) insert into a post as a thumbnail (“attachment”), 2) upload into the Forum’s Photo Gallery, and 3) insert into a post as a full-size photo (“insert image”). If you are just looking for information on re-sizing your photos, look here: https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...al-photos.html
1) The easiest way to add pictures to your posts is to “attach” them and have them show up as thumbnails at the bottom of your post. To add pictures this way, you do NOT need to first host the pictures on the internet – you will upload them directly from your hard drive. For specific instructions on how to do this, look here:
HOW TO: Put Thumbnail Pics in Your Posts
NOTE: If you attach your photos as thumbnails or use a thirdy-party hosting service, you may still want to upload your photos to the Forum’s gallery so that the pictures may be accessed via your username. You can even add additional information to the photo, such as the make/model/size of your tires, so that someone browsing the gallery can quickly get additional information that they may be looking for.
2) Inserting photos in the photo gallery provides you and others with a way to access photos by your username (left-clicking on a username brings up a menu with the option to “View <Usernames’s> Photo Gallery"). Photos placed into the Photo Gallery may also be linked to your posts without requiring the use of a 3rd party photo-hosting service. See the following link for more information on uploading images to the Photo Gallery and using those images in your posts:
NOTE: One of the advantages of attaching pictures as a thumbnail or using the Forum’s Photo Gallery to host your pictures is that links to your pictures should be preserved as long as the Forum is around! (If you use a third-party hosting service, the links will be broken if you stop subscribing, the service goes under, etc.)
3) If you want to insert your photo as a full-size image within your post (good for telling a story, giving instructions, etc.), see steps 3-5 of the following link (this procedure is applicable for both pictures hosted on the forum and elsewhere).
