How to post pictures to the forum
« on: 30 April 2006, 12:21 AM »
1) Download the Imageshack program to your hard drive and install it.  http://reg.imageshack.us/content.php?page=features
2) Take your picture or copy image from internet
3) Save pic to Start --> 'My Pictures'
4) Right click on the picture you want to post to the forum: select "Imageshack Quickload" and then click "Upload to Imageshack."  This will automoatically upload your picture to Imageshack.
5) Copy the link from the "thumbnail" section (click on it and select 'copy').
6) Open the thread you wish to post to.
7) Select the location where you wish to paste the image and click 'paste.'
8) Save your post and admire your handiwork.

Here are a few pics I saved from ebay for a 64 MBz 600:




   






The advantages of posting thumbnails are that they save hosting space; they save loading time; and people can see all your pics and decide which ones they would like to click on.  If anyone has an easier program than Imageshack, create a post detailing how to install, use, and post with it.  But this one works pretty well, and is pretty darned easy to use.

So let's see your car now!  You don't have any more excuses!

The Gallery topic at the top of the Test Drive board also gives instructions for uploading your photos to this site.
