    How to post a pic.

    There's a few different ways on TMC to display an image in your post. I'll go over the few basic options here.
    The first thing you need to decide is if you want to display your picture from a third party hosting site like Photobucket, upload your photo to the TMC or upload the photo direct from your PC to the TMC. I'll go over these three options below.

    Web Photo Hosting Site

    1. Upload or select your photo from your web based hosting site.
    2. You'll need to copy the URL for the photo so that the forum knows where to go to display the picture. In Photobucket, you'll see a field that is listed as Direct. Click on the URL in the field and the URL is automatically added to your clipboard.



    3. Click on the icon that looks like a picture frame above. You'll get a pop up like the one below. Select the from URL tab and paste in the address from step 2. Ensure that the Retrieve remote file and reference locally is unchecked.



    4. Hit Ok and your picture will be displayed in your post like below.



    Using Your Album on TMC

    1. Go to your album and click on the picture that you want to display. You will see a page like the one below.



    2. In the bottom right hand corner, you'll see a field called Photo URL. Copy the entire URL.



    3. Click on the icon that looks like a picture frame above. You'll get a pop up like the one below. Select the from URL tab and paste in the address from step 2. Ensure that the Retrieve remote file and reference locally is unchecked.



    4. Hit Ok and your picture will be displayed in your post like below.



    Uploading An Image Directly From Your PC

    1. Go Advanced vs. Quick Reply. Select the icon in the top row that looks like a paperclip. The File Upload Manager will pop up.



    2. Select Add Files and browse your PC until you find the image you want to upload and display. Double click the file, or single click to select, then click on Open.

    3. Select Upload just under where you see the file name you've selected.



    4. Click on the Insert Inline button and then the Done button in the bottom right when the file has been uploaded and you can see the file in the bottom of the File Upload Manager.



    5. Your image will be displayed like below.

    If uploading pics from your computer and they won't load, chances are the file is too large. Easy to fix, just gotta resize.

    Open advanced reply
    Open manage attatchments
    Open add files
    Open select files
    Right click on picture you wish to upload
    Open with paint
    Select resize
    Change top number 100 to 50
    Click on OK
    Click on Save
    Click Open on picture you just resized
    Click on Upload
    Click on done

    Voila, you got your pic resized n included in your post.
    Yup sounds complicated but with just a hair of practice it's actually pretty darn easy (must be, even I can do it. LOL)
    Any problems, gimme or one of the guys a holler for assistance.

    Enjoy.
