Hi Zippy,

Open an account at www.imgageshack.com its free and light years better than Photobucket and no adverts to slow you down.

Open up your iPhoto and drag the photos you want to upload onto your Mac/Macbook desktop.

When you have an open account on Imageshack (or similar) click upload o you new account and then drag your chosen photos into the Upload box.

When have have finished uploading you can choose the size, if you have a 24 mega-pixel camera for instance, you might need to reduce the sizes. Also chose Forum in type of picture and Imageshack will set the correct data for copying to your forum post.

To copy to your forum post: highlight the picture in All Images and then Get Links/Image Sizes then copy and paste the entire URL into your new forum post.

Cheers,
Paul

I'll give it a go.....

There are two options:

1. Using Photobucket (or similar) and the 'Img' button.....or

2. Adding the photo as an attachment using the 'Choose File' option


Photobucket

To add a photo when drafting a message/reply do the following:

- click the 'Img' box (top right beside the 'URL' box) you should see this: [img] in your draft message

- next go to Photobucket and click on the 'Direct' box containing the http link to the photo (it should show 'copied' once you click on the link)

- copy the link to your message after [img] so you have this: [img]http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p136/El_Loco_2007/2015-08-31%2016.56.48_zpsne8h1wvf.jpg

- then click the 'Img*' box and you should have this:

[img]http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p136/El_Loco_2007/2015-08-31%2016.56.48_zpsne8h1wvf.jpg [/img]

Click the 'Preview' box at the bottom of the message and you should see the photo appear like this:



Attaching a Photo

Images cannot be any larger than 499 KB.

Make sure you resize the image below 499 KB, save it into your pictures (on your computer) then upload it by clicking on the 'Choose File' bottom of the message. You can add a description of the photo in 'File Comment' box if you wish.

Hopefully one of the two will work for you. Thumb
