Follow these directions:

1) Go to (any other free photo hosting site that allows embedding can be used but most folks use photobucket as it's free and user friendly).
2) Create an account by clicking the "Join Now" tab in the middle of the page towards the top.
3) Create a user name and password for your new account and click "next step".
4) Fill in the other info they ask for that you are comfortable giving out but they require at least email, gender, and zip code. To my knowledge photobucket does NOT spam so little worry there.
5) You will be routed to your account "home page." This is where you upload photos onto the photobucket site. You will need your pictures saved onto your harddrive, or, if your camera/picture card is directly plugged into your computer at time of upload, you can upload from there as well.
6) Click on the "Choose files" icon. This pulls up a directy from your computer. Select the appropriate file and image you want to upload. Once selected it will auto upload it to your photobucket account. It will take you to another page after uploaded where it asks you if you want to give the image a title which you can do or ignore. Once done there, click on "return to album."
7) You will be taken back to your "photo album" where you will now see the image you just uploaded. Place your mouse over that image. You will see a menu drop down that says "Email and IM, Direct Link, HTML Code, and IMG Code." IMG Code is what you want to select to post here. Essentially, the photo remains on the photobucket page but you are "embedding" it here on allows it to be visible here but without using up boatered site bandwidth to host the image.
8) Put your mouse over the IMG Code section and right click to bring down another drop down menu. Select "COPY" from that drop down menu.
9) Open another browser page and come here to Start the thread you want to have a picture posted in and type away. When you are ready to insert the picture, place the curser exeactly where you want the picture to appear in your post. Once curser is in the correct spot, right click on your mouse and select "PASTE". It will paste the IMG code you copied in step #8.
10) Click "Post New Topic" below your new thread here on Your new thread will appear and your image will be viewable by all.

One other option...when you go to upload, instead of clicking on "choose file" as noted in step #6 above, you can click on "bulk uploaded" or "old uploader." This will allow you to upload multiple files at once with less work. I typically prefer the old uploader format but either works and it is a lot easier to do it that way if you are wanting to upload/post 10-20 pictures or more as part of a for sale ad here on

Woodsong, what do you think I did wrong while I tried to download my pix. They can be viewed if one clicks on the url but pix don't show on post w/o doing that. You can view my post for bimini boot to see what I'm trying to explain.

Bob, make sure you are copying the IMG code.

Hogan is right- you did not post the IMG code with your pic- you were posting the email and IM link if that makes sense.

Maybe this post should be a sticky for this forum?
