How to post images

Forum Rules:
...No image may be posted that is larger than 640 x 480 pixels at no higher than 200 dpi. No image may be larger than 300K. Any image larger than this size may be linked to (displayed on another site) using a text link or a smaller image (thumbnail) for display on this forum.


The method that you can use to post images in your messages:

1. To post an image from a website, copy the entire URL of the image (http:...), found in the address bar at the top of your browser, and paste it in the text window. Then, put {img} at the beginning of the URL and put {/img} at the end of the URL. I used curly brackets ({ }), so that my message would be displayed properly. Use straight brackets ([ ]) on your img tags. The URL will be displayed as an image in your message.

2. There are several websites on the internet that you can use to post images on the OFCC Forums. I use http://tinypic.com/ It's quick and easy, and no registration is required.

To use tinypic.com:

1. Use the "Browse..." button to select an image that you have saved on your computer.

2. If the image is larger than 640x480, use the drop-down menu on the "Resize" selector to select "Message Board 640x480"

Image

3. Click "UPLOAD NOW!"

4. Copy the [IMG] link, and paste it to your message.

Using http://www.imageshack.us/ , like tinypic.com, is quick and easy, and no registration is required. ImageShack allows you to post a thumbnail of a larger image. No resizing is necessary if you post a thumbnail.

To use imageshack.us:

1. Use the "browse..." button to select an image from the internet (using the url), your computer, or another device.

2. Click "host it!"

Image

3. Copy the "Thumbnail for forums (1)" link, and paste it to your message.
