    Now I have a digital camera I would like to display photos in threads on these forums.
    I know I need hosting space so have joined photobucket but it all seems Greek to me?
    Easy guide please?
    I tried doing a search as I guess this gets asked all the time but I must have been looking in the wrong areas! :confused:

    Just use the image tags which look like this: [​IMG] with the web address of the picture inbetween.

    There's a page on how to use vb code here if you're not sure.

    You don't need a host to display your pic's you can select direct from your stored files on your hardrive

    Just go to "go advanced" when composing your thread, then click on "manage attatchments" then click "choose", select the image from the files you wish to upload, then click on "upload" and the images you select will be shown at the bottom of your post as attatched thumbnails.

    Just remember the image cannot be larger than 120k so you will need to resize before posting.

    Hope this has explained it for you,it's easy when you get the hang of it.
