Click on "Gallery" in the upper right hand corner of the menu
Image

Click on your login name behind the words "Your Personal Album"
Image

Then click on the new image button.
Image

Browse for the file you wish to upload...
Image

Click on Continue

Add a description and submit.

That's all there is to it. Pretty easy once you've done it once or twice!

We modified the gallery so that it'll accept pictures up to 8 megs in size, and resize them automatically! :D

How to put your picture into a post...

Go to your album... and find the photo you want... click on it...

Underneath you'll see this:

Click the contents of Image-URL and then edit-copy (ctrl-c on most machines)
Image

Go to your post

Edit-Paste (or ctrl-v on most machines)

Then highlight the url, and hit the Img Button

This is the end result with the Img tags

How to use the album tags...

How to use the album tags

The album tags work the same way as the Image-URL tags, except it posts a smaller picture. But when you click on the smaller picture, it expands to full size.

To post a picture with the album tags, go to your album, and click on the picture you want to post. Underneath you'll see this.

Image

Click the contents of the album box and then edit-copy (ctrl-c on most machines)

Go to your post

Edit-Paste (or ctrl-v on most machines)

It'll look like this...
Image

Hit Submit, and you're done.

Mike...

P.S. The benefit of the album method is that it doesn't use as much bandwidth... ;)

If you see someone struggling with photos... or asking for help with photos, tell them to click on "Forum Problems"->"Help with Photos".

Or give them this URL... viewtopic.php?p=911290#p911290

:D
