There are loads of different ways to scale and reduce a picture suitable for posting, one of the easiest ways to post pictures on here is :-

a) Go to http://www.photobucket.com

b) Open an account (its free!)

c) Upload your pictures, its as simple as clicking on this button (1)

Image

d) Then click on the edit button > resize (2)

Image

e) Select your photo

f) To resize them to a size suitable for the message board simply type 500 in the box I've marked. Make sure you have the 'keep proportions' box ticked or you'll get some funny results.

Image

g) Save it as a copy then you've always got your original stored.

To post on the forum :-

(i) Still in photobucket find your picture in your album
(ii) Hover on the picture and a box drops down
(iii)Click on IMG Code to select it
(iv) Right click > copy

Image

Paste it into your message, it will look like this :-

[IMG]http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c360/whatever you named your album/your picture.jpg[ /IMG]

That's it!
It sounds like a schlep but its really quick and easy once the account is set up and you get used to it. Any problems and I'll be pleased to answer them just let me know.

I think what Gary meant was to post a thumbnail that gets bigger when you click on it.

Another good hosting site is www.xs.to

You up load your pic and then copy and past the thumbnail link and it comes out as above.

Hi

Essex has kindly shown us all, how to upload a picture to the photobucket site and how to make it a thumbnail.

Any photographs that do not appear as thumbnails, like Perry`s and Wendy`s above, will be deleted.

I am sure that you all understand why.

Regards
Gary
