Philip...! :snakeman:

OK, go on, your discouraging words only remind me that if others can master this skill, I can too.

The thing is, now I've gone off the pictures I took, and need to re-do them. I note that, although you have posted photos, you haven't even got an avatar! So chiz, chiz, chiz as we used to say.

So there. :oops: Oh hell.

I find that in every forum I go to there are always new people who aren't sure how to get pictures as part of their message. You should have a mini tutorial somewhere. Simply:

- register at http://www.photobucket.com
- click browse and find your picture on your harddrive
- click upload
- copy the link underneath the photo the link should look like Image
- paste that into your message, and the image will appear.

If you want an image for your signature or avatar, then you simply copy the link without the [img] tags. Pretty sure that's how you do it.
Please could we have this as a static topic at the top of the CH Photos forum? Every time I want to upload photos it takes me ages to find the instructions. I know not all photos end up in the Photos forum but it seem the most obvious place for the instructions.

Many thanks!

I'm useless - I searched for the topic, then edited it, and thought "it already is" but then stopped thinking about it!

Thanks - I hadn't spotted it was already in the First Time Visitors section :oops:. But still, better twice than not at all.

OK, I've followed this to the letter, but if I try to post anything it seems to appear minus the right hand third or so of the image.

Any ideas? Something to do with the original size of the picture, perhaps?

7 years later is it really not possible to upload a photo directly from my pc to chforum? Photobucket really doesn't like me, and I have to say the feeling's mutual.
