I use imageshack to upload most of my photos- they sometimes get deleted after a few years though, here's how:

go to http://www.imageshack.us

to upload a single photo click browse, then select the location of the image on your computer then click 'host it'

Image

when this window appears scroll down to the last link, this uploads a big image and so is not recommended by imageshack for forum use, but in kayaking we often show off big pictures.

Image

Click Img at the top of the page:

Surround the link to your pictures with the

Code: Select all

[img]INSERT IMAGE LINK HERE[/img]
In this example the code will look like this:

Code: Select all

[img]http://img388.imageshack.us/img388/3482/screenshot2my3.png[/img]
the image will then appear in the post like in this guide, however may sometimes be too big to post on a forum, if this is the case the easiest thing to do is tick the resize image box on the imageshack homepage.
