RE: How Do You Upload Pictures on this site?

-Take pics.
-Resize to something decent for a post. 600-700 pixels wide is the max you want to go if you want people on a board to like you. Use a program that resamples when it resizes, so you don't get 'jaggies.' Go to Zdnet.com and download Irfanview for free if you don't have one.
-Upload the pic. Your ISP might give free hosting. If not, sign up for a Roadfly email account(http://mail.roadfly.com); you get 3 megs of web space free. Here's a walkthrough (http://members.roadfly.com/cargogal/rtut.htm) a friend made up.
Avoid free web options like Geocities and Angelfire and Webshots and Tripod. They don't like you to reference pics on other sites, and will give you a red X. Tripod has a bandwith limitation of about 2 views a fornight, on top of that.
-Reference the pic in your post.
[img]http://[/img] (This is using the |Image| button above the text box)
Repeat until all of your pics are posted.

PS - If there are not a lot of pics I could host them for you - I'll send you the url (web-address) of where they are.

RE: How Do You Upload Pictures on this site?

Hi BenzGirl04,

Here is what works for me on this site regarding posts & replies.
I've yet to upload images into one of the Galleries.

When starting a new topic or replying to a query you will see 2 buttons just below the Message text box. If you wish to add/upload a photo or two select the lower "Attach a file.... etc." button.

After you submit your post the Attach File window opens & asks you to select an image via a Drop down menu. Select it & hit the Choose button. The image (if a .jpg or .jpeg file) will be uploaded.

Examples below.

I hope this is of help to you, MBL

when are you going to show us some pics of your car? You said that you have a C230k Coupe? That is my car too. Fun to drive but it gets me in trouble! I've had mine up to 230kph!
