HOW TO: Add Images

Post by Roy-Outter »

Adding images is nice and easy.

upload your image to some hosting, copying the URL address.

When you want to post the image simply start your topic, click the fimg or img buttons above and paste in the imaged address.

for example

Code: Select all

[fimg=100,50]https://www.bbcode.org/images/lubeck_small.jpg[/fimg]
you can host images in the all the usual places but a little tip, upload them to cloud hosting (such as drop box) and copy the url for the preview image
(TO DO add images/step)

I would recommend watermarking ordinal images, though some hosting sites will so this for you.

Including an image

Code: Select all

Making the image clickable (in this case linking to the original image)
