You have to have a site that supports picture linking. I use pic.paulsonator.com.
Its free but sometimes there are bandwidth problems.
Put your picture there and note down the link info.
Then when you create your post, you press on the IMG button and put the link in between the
tags and thats it

Depending on the photo host that you choose, there'll be different ways of uploading your pictures onto the server. Some will require FTP, others will go through your web browser.

To post your images, use the IMG tag in your message, like this:


In the above example, your image is located at http://www.yourserver.com/youraccount/image001.jpg

For the benefit of 56k users, please make sure your image meets the following:

No bigger than 700 pixels on the longest end or smaller. You can use almost any imaging program for this.
Use the "Resize" option to do this, select "pixels" (rather than cm or in), and type in "700" on the longest end or smaller.
Be sure that the "Keep Aspect Ratio" or similar option is checked.


Compression no better than level 6 compression in PhotoShop, level 60 for most other imaging programs (eg. ACDSee).
