2. Sign up for a Photobucket account. It is free. Once you have an account, you can submit pictures from your hard disk to be loaded up to your online album on the Photobucket web site.
3. Make sure that any pictures that you load are not too big because they will cause problems when they show on the message board and will also take a long time to download for dialup users.
4. When you have loaded a picture you will see three different texts underneath it. These are three different ways to address the picture:
URL: this one is the address that you can use to paste into your browser's address box to view the picture on its own. ignore it!
Tag: This is the HTML code which would be used in designing a webpage to display the picture. ignore it!
Img: Now, this is the useful one. Click on the text and highlight it and then press CTRL-C to copy it to the clipboard.
Now go to the message board and open your new message box. Click in the box and press CTRL-V which will paste the Img text into the box. This will now cause the picture to be included in the message at the point where you have pasted the text.
When you are happy with your new message, tick the 'Preview' box under the message box and press the "Add post" button. This will show you the final result including the picture. If you are still happy with it, press the 'Add post' button again, otherwise go back and edit the message again until you are happy with it.
