Disclaimer... these instructions are PC relative. If you use anything else, like a Mac, or an ORIC-1 then the method is the same, but the clickage might be different...

Yes, you can upload pictures in your posts on the Brick-Yard, but only in the Bus-Park. You need a minimum of 10 posts to your name, and theres a file size limit of 100k. Nice.

However, I'm getting regular PMs from people asking "how come I cant upload images in my For Sale ad..." or "can you enable me to post pics in the main forum".

The answers are always... "Cos You Cant" and "No, I wont"... We do it that way for 2 reasons... one is that webspace costs, and you cant pay for it in sweat like FAME... and the other is that its easier to keep track of what you cloppers are posting if its just the one forum... (i'm looking at you Mr Cunning Plan... )



So, what do you do?

Well, you use a free online host such as PhotoBucket.

Now, I'm fully aware that to some, computers are the work of Beelzebub (just like Diesel engines), but thats simply not the case (unlike Diesel engines...). Its simply a case of point click... wait... whoopee.

So here we go.. Photobucket in one easy lesson...

1. Goto http://www.photobucket.com

2. If you dont already have an account (if you do, skip to 3.), you need to register. Its free, and not at all painful. If you managed it here, you'll manage it there too... then once youre registered...

3. Login.

4. Click on the "UPLOAD" button...

5. The page will change... you'll see some boxes with some buttons at the side with the word "BROWSE" on them... click one...

6. A browse window will open where you can select the file on your PC you want to upload...find it, click it, then click "OPEN" (yeah, i know youre not opening it, but thats what it says )

7. If you want to upload more than one... click the next "BROWSE" button.. once youve selected all your files... click upload.

8. wait. You'll get a status bar.. it might take a few seconds depending how big the photo is, and how fast your connection is...
Once its uploaded, not much happens, but pay attention and you'll notice that a thumbnail of your image has appeared lower down the screen... thats your pic, from your computer, on the internet!!! W00T!!! etc.

9. Now, the bit some of us seem to have trouble with... linking the image here... You'll notice under the image are 4 boxes. the only one you're interested in as far as the Brick-Yard goes is the bottom one...
It should look like this :



Click where it says "IMG CODE" and the word "COPIED" will appear briefly next to your mouse pointer... that has copied the code you need to your "clipboard"... Now, come to your posting on here... click in the text window just to make sure... doesnt matter which forum, you can do it in any... and either right click, and select "PASTE"... press "CTRL+V".. or even select "EDIT" on the menu bar and click "PASTE"....

you'll see some text appear like this:

[IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e31/tee3T3/piccy.jpg[/IMG]

10. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Always press the "Enter" key at least once after each image... or your post will look crappy and nobody will read it.

11. Type some twaddle to go with the pic.

12. Cick the "POST" button...

13. Youre done... the end.

The no porn, or owt offensive ruling still applies though, unless you post it in the secret members only porn section...

That actually seems easy enough for even me to give it it a go!

I'll try it out, and see if it works...

Cheers

Thanks for that, I was sad and discombobulated not to be able to post pics......at least now I understand that it's cos I'm new, not done enough posts, so here's another to add to my tally! I've been keenly following the "how do you make a high-top look good?" thread in the Brickie's Arms, and I am prepared to risk the mockery of my on-line peers and show them my lil blue bus in the bus-park!

Cheers for the photo bucket destructions, I will give it a whirl; I'm on a mac, so I will report back if it's all weird and suchlike!

Hurray it worked!

Ok, tis a lil bit different on the mac.......the IMG thang takes you to a choice of different types of pics, I selected the one where it says it's best for message boards. Aprt from the fact my pics have come out a bit small, it rocks.

Nice one.

Well I still can't post a photo. Printed of TEE3 instructions dated 12/10/2007 and did not get past number 4. Looked and looked and cannot see the "UPLOAD" button. Has it changed. If still there please give me a clue ie left corner, below "XXXXXX" etc. Thanks
