    To post a picture find the url like this http://www.floridaame.org/GalleryPages/IMG2005/Brian Konsela Elbow 0219.JPG

    highlight the url and hit the button that says Img, you will end up with a code that looks like this..
    Code:
    [img]http://www.floridaame.org/GalleryPages/IMG2005/Brian%20Konsela%20%20Elbow%200219.JPG[/img]
    when you post that code it will show as a picture.
    [​IMG]

    So all there is to it is the
    Code:
    [img]web address goes here[/img]
    If you need a place to host pictures on the web you can do it free at...

    That sure looks easy enough, and I'm sure it is, but for us old folks that were born almost before electronics, indoor plumbing, and certainly before television, things come a little slow sometimes. To be honest I'm much more comfortable in the workshop. When I do get where I can post pictures, I hope it will be something that will be of interest to you.

    Just double click on the img link in photobucket and past it into your post. That's how I do it.

    On the Avatar, You better talk to Rick or Mike:O)

    HMEM sounds like great bunch of guys, and I'd sure like to join in, but the entire site is beyond me. My first project is a scratch designed and built V-4 steam racing engine intended to power a model racing boat in the style of the early twenties. It's been built with no castings, utilizing only a drill press and hand tools. Nearly finished, it presently runs on one bank while awaiting completion of its manifolds. If anyone is interested I can be reached in the normal manner at <hyedickinson@comcast.net>

    Regards,
    Don Dickinson

    Just click on the next img url for the relevant picture you want to add...

    So in Photobucket if you got a bunch of pictures youwant to add, each one has an img url assigned to it, Yeah? what I do is copy the img url, and then paste it into my reply...like this:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Very easy...Hope this helps

    This may seem a strange question from somebody who has just done his 200th post, many with pictures. I use the photobucket method. But I see people are posting pics with a thumbnail and a link to an image that appears to be hosted on the homemodelenginemachinist site

    for example

    http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/index.php?topic=9299.0

    has images here

    http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=9299.0;attach=9793

    So how do you do it this way? There's no upload image option as far as I can see.. I've just noticed the additional options link, but it doesn't work in preview mode, you have to save the post to see the image. (Answered my own question)

    I am looking at it right now... The link appears to be hosed for some reason. It is taking me to a malicious site; firewall and virus programs were going nuts. Stand by.



    Success! There was in issue with the link. Drei, I am sending you a PM to explain what happened and how I fixed it.

    Dave if the pix is in your file already it's fairly simple.

    1) Type your message

    2) Bottom left says "Additional Options" Ck the little box it will open a browse search

    3) Click Browse and it will open to your file

    Pick the pix you want and open it It will move the pix and all you do is post the whole thing and you get the oix where youy want it. See below.
