How to Put Pictures in Your Thread!

I get a lot of questions about how to re-size and post pictures in sale threads, and I notice a LOT of pictures that are not re-sized in sale postings and that makes it very difficult for buyers! Here are instructions on how to add pictures to your post. I am using imageshack, but you can use any other image-hosting site you like (flickr, webshots, photobucket, etc.)

1) go to ImageShack® - Hosting

2) Click on the "Browse" Button and find the picture you want to upload. If it has NOT already been resized, click on the checkbox to the left of "resize image?" and from the pull-down menu, select the "640 x 480 (for message boards)" option.



3) Click on the "host it!" button.

4) On the next page, you'll see a bunch of options for posting your picture. If you want to use imageshack's code, highlight the code in the "Hotlink for forums (1)" option and paste that code into your AF window. After you submit your post, the pictures will appear.




5) Another option for adding a picture is to put the URL for the picture in between the [img] and [/img] tags. For this option, copy the "direct link to image" text and put it in between the [img] tags. For example:

[img]http://imageshack.us/urlofpicture.jpg[/img ]

Voila! That should be it. If you have any questions, let me know. Always re-size your pictures when posting in the Mall!

The above instructions also work if you want to post pictures in any other thread or if you want to add an avatar! Just host it on imageshack and link to it

For FLICKR:

Flickr resizes the photos for you into large, medium, and thumbnail.

After you upload your photo, click on it. You will be given the link for all 3 sizes. Simply copy the URL, then paste it between the following tags:
[img]PASTE LINK HERE[/img] or use the little mountain with a sun icon above the reply box. That's the image insertion icon, and you can paste the URL in the box that opens and it will essentially insert the tags for you so you don't have to, and then the image will appear in the post and not have to be clicked on.

For 5) you can also click the little postcard icon above the field in which you type the message, and a pop up windows appears where you put the URL in. Easypeasy.

Clearly yes. Follow the directions in this thread! Upload your photos to flickr.com and copy the link. It's very simple

That's fine. Now just right click on the photos on there, copy the image location, and paste it between [img] [ /img]:

No. wrong link. RIGHT CLICK on the image when it's open in the window on a single file view, not the entire album! You are just copying and pasting off your browser's location bar, that's not an individual image url

You are doing everything right EXCEPT you are not taking the url off the image correctly, so you are NOT putting the RIGHT THING between the [img] brackets! Right click on the picture in your album. Click copy image location OR properties, that will show you the image's individual url too

You need to start a new thread in the appropriate brand's section with pics if you are wanting an authenticity check.
