| I must be having a thick day. I have posted an advert in V4s for sale which was a Word file with three images, and the images don't display in the advert. I have tried copying the original JPEG files and pasting but still no joy.|
Can anyone please advise what I need to do?

| Hi Paul,|
First - set up a (free) account with www.photobucket.com or similar . . .
Then upload your images to your account (keep the images below 650 pixels wide at 72dpi) - once uploaded there are 4 links listed below each uploaded image . . .
You need the 'IMG Code' - copy it and then go back to this forum/post - click on the 'insert image' button (it's the icon with a mountain scene on it) - you should get the following code appear
Paste the IMG Code from Photobucket within these brackets - BUT delete the caps version of the code (from Photobucket) ie: (IMG) and (/IMG) parts.
Hit the Preview button and it should appear.
Sorry if this is lengthy - but persevere, once you've got your photobucket account - you can add images very easily - like they say - it's easy when you know how!
Good luck and reply to this post if you have any problems!

| Can we make it easier to post photo's, I have better things to do than spend all night registering on bucketphoto etc to upload a few photo's, please.|

| Unfortunately it's the same for any forum - otherwise the forum would get clogged up with peoples pics.|

OK, for Flickr users...
Select the image you want to use:
Select the 'Share this photo' button (looks like an arrow)
then select 'BBCode' - this is where it gets tricky...
select the size you want to display (eg: 640 x 480) and copy the line of code in the box beneath.
This what happens when you do...

But you really only need the section that starts 'img' and ends in '/img' (including brackets) and it should look like this...
Hope that helps, perhaps we could make a 'sticky' for Flcikr and Photobucket users - I'm sure I produced something similar for photobucket users not so long ago?

| Can this forum be configured so you can upload pics direct from laptop/iPhone? The other forums I use are able to.|

| This forum is reassuringly old fashioned. ;)|

| I think you can use http://imgur.com/ They offer BB-code. If I'm right the forum is using the BB-format.|
