    Default Step By Step Guide - How to post pictures in threads

    "How do i post a picture in this thread?"
    I keep seeing this question asked occaisonally on the board so thought i'd write up a step-by-step guide as it may help somebody in the future. It may seem complicated but i've tried to simplify this walk through as much as possible.

    Here goes:

    Firstly you'll need to host/upload the picture online somewhere, there are plenty of free websites that will allow you to do this (Photobucket, Imageshack etc) but personally i find Tinypic.com one of the easiest to use:

    http://tinypic.com/

    Once on the site (it's free to join but you don't have to)

    Click on the 'Browse' button.




    This will open a smaller box showing your Desktop (place the picture you want to post here first as it makes it easier to find)

    The picture i want to upload is called "Mandarin" Left mouse click on it once to select it.




    Then click the 'Open' button in the bottom right of the box.




    Next you may need to resize your picture before uploading. Click on the 'Resize' drop down tab and then select 'Message Board (640x480)' as this is the best size for this forum although you could also go for 800x600 as a maximum size.

    Then you need to click the 'Upload Now!' button




    Once your chosen picture has been Resized & Uploaded the next screen will show you the code you need to copy.

    Left mouse click once on the second link down that says "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" to highlight the code, then Right mouse click and choose 'Copy'




    Finally, navigate back to the Cemex forum & the thread in which you want to post your picture in.

    In the 'Quick Reply' box at the bottom of the thread, Right mouse click once, then select 'Paste'




    This will paste the code into the thread in the correct format so that when you then click on 'Post Quick Reply' you will see your picture posted in the thread.





    Job done!

    mine didnt seem to work?
    all i was left with was the img code in text on the finished post (frimley mirrors) and no photo?

    I'm afarid you haven't quite cracked it... the link in the Frimley thread just takes you to your photo album on Photobucket.

    when you post the code to the individual pic you want to post you also need to make sure it has the correct 'tags' before and after the link so it looks like this example:

    [img]yourpicturelinkhere[/img]


    If you hover over the picture in your account that you'd like to add, just copy the entire contets of the 4th box down and paste it onto here, then the picture will show

    the other way to do it rather than manually type those IMG codes is to click on the little icon in the reply box that looks like a mountain, you get a box pop up that you can paste your code into and it'll add the tags automatically for you.

    hope that helps
