Photos -- How do I post them?

HONEST QUESTION! NOT A TROLL!

This is probably the wrong place to ask this, but: I know this has to have been covered before, but I apparently am not using the correct search words in order to find my answer. How in the heck do I post photos onto this site? If they have to be hosted elsewhere... where and how?

BTW: I don't tweet. Facebook sucks. Google already has way too much information on me.

Use Photobucket or imgur. Photobucket will have a section once you upload with the codes to post to the forum, use the [ IMG ] tags. Not sure how imgur does it I don't really use them.

Click on the yellow "picture" icon in the message (between the hyperlink and the quote icons) put the address of the picture in the window that pops up.

if you want to upload pics from your computer click "Go Advanced" at the bottom of the page and under "Additional Options" click the button that says "Manage Attachments" and a popup will show up and click "Browse" to search your computer for the files you want to upload.

Hope that helps

So... As I understand it... MCB does not allow attachments. Therefore any photos have to be posted elsewhere at a service like Photobucket/imgur and then referenced with a URL. Does using the yellow URL automatically bring up the pic then? (I as because some pics on here come up at once and some bring up a URL which I have to follow. And some never come up... As if the have already been removed.)

Thanks for the help.

You can attach them, follow my directions. I'll take screen shots when I get home if you still have problems

Chrome?

I tried following your directions for attaching photos. However, I do t have the Manage Attachments option.

I am normally logged into MCB through an android tablet... Which may be my problem. I will try the desk top when I next login from there.

Thanks for the help.

I see that picture size can be varied. What size photos are normally posted here?

Any reasonable size that does not require us to scroll around the image...i usually use 800x600 for forum stuffs, i try not to go much larger than that usually (occasionally up to 1,000 or 1,200 wide if i need more detail)

Most photo-sharing sites like Flickr or imgur or photobucket have easy 'share' links which give you the URL needed. If not, and the pic has a specific web address, there is the little "pic" icon in the header of the posting box (looks like a little mountain) and that will affix the needed tags onto the images URL.
