Let's face it, we all have had trouble trying to figure out how to post photos to a forum post. I made this simple "how to"
in hopes of making it easier. It's always been better for me to see how something is done, then just be told how.
I used the forum from one of several that I belong to, but it should work for most any forum. I also used Photobucket, but again, it should be simular for most photo sharing sites.
After you find the photo you want to post, highlight the "Direct" link.
Right-click and click on "copy".
Go to the forum and click the "Photo/Image" button. A box simular to this should open.
Paste the link from Photobucket into the window.
Click the "Insert Image" button and the resulting link should look something like this. Preview the post and make sure that the link works. If so, post away.
If you have trouble getting the link to work, look for the [img] and [/img] tags. Not all links will have both, but they will have at least the first one. If you feel comfortable enough, you can type the [img] and [/img] tags and just post the link between them. Example: [img]your link[/img].
