jonick,

there are tons of posts on here on how to post pics.   just search for "Posting pictures"

the simple way is to pay a tenner and you get an extra button - go to profile and then paid subscriptions.

Other than that there are two ways of doing it...

1 - use an external hosting site like photobucket or flickr

Spudly posted this

To use Photobucket.

1. Search for photobucket and get yourself registered on their site
2. I find it easier to move any photo's i want to upload to my documents folder.
3. On the photobucket home page you will see a section " Choose Files" (select my computer)
4. This will open up another window for your computer. If not already selected, select my documents.
5. Double click the picture you wish to send to photobucket. This will take a minute or so to upload.
6  When the picture has uploaded a window will open for you to add a title. If you do not wish to do so
    click on return to album.
7. Back to photobucket page. Move you mouse pointer over the picture that you wish to use. This will   
    open up a drop down menu. Left click the IMG code at the bottom of the menu to highlight it, then once
    it's highlighted right click and select copy.
8. Now back to A4A page. You can now right click into your post and select paste. This will show a long
    list of letters and numbers. This will show a picture the next time you or someone else reads the post.

The other way is to use the free gallery option

Using the free gallery isnt that hard once you have got some images in there..
Click on profile (top menu)
Click on View Gallery
Assuming you have uploaded your images then click on the image and copy the BB Code from the bottom left...
Just make sure you have ensmallened your pics...

How basic do you want it?

Go to a website called tinypics.............upload your picture....................you will see a code for forums........click on it..........right click and choose copy.

Do your message on here and then right click again and click on paste...then post your message and pic.

There are lots of different ways but if you want simple it is about as simple as you can get.

Try it step by step,till you try you won't get anywhere   ;D

I could`nt agree more, every other site that I have been on you just upload from your computer so simple, is it because I don`t pay a fee. Please make it simple say like the facebook site.
 Just tried again, clicked  on image and this symbol gobbledegook comes up what are you supposed to do with that (don`t tell me)   ::)

No.  You can post photographs without paying a fee.  Load your pictures into a free photo hosting website like Photobucket or Flickr and paste the link into your post here.

A4A isn't like Facebook which is a large commercial website that makes money out of advertisers and selling your information.  Dan pays for A4A out of his own pocket.  Hosting people's pictures on A4A requires capacity that Dan has to pay for so he asks people to pay a small annual charge if they want to post pictures direct into posts.  That seems to me to be quite a fair way of doing it.  If you don't want to pay, you still have the option of using a free host.

Whilst all the aviation forums that I visit give you a quick Upload - Select - Upload, I do have to reduce in size. This takes quite a time.

And Photobucket puts your pics into an album where they can take a while to find.

I stick wit A4A!

Thanks grawrc, I am rather pleased with it    :)   we bought it just over a year ago in flower from a garden centre, eventually the flowers died and it sat in the bath room for several months  before  blooming again.
It has had these blooms for ages, a really good value for money plant.  :)
Kind regards

Welcome to A4A, Mike.

Thanks  :)
Thats a lovely little fella called Marcelle that we came across in the Loire valley, he was very patient while I messed about doing a self take with the camera, took me a few goes before I got the shot I wanted. Think he really enjoyed the attention
Kind regards

Thanks Betty  :)

My camera is a Nikon D300 (DSLR) 12mgpx, for this image I had a 17-35mm F2.8 zoom lens attached. The Orchid was photographed in front of our living room window , I used flash to counter the effect of back lighting .
Kind regards

Thanks for that.  I just love the way the orchid is so in focus and the background is not. 
 
Any more photos?

Yes I have plenty of photos  :) I'll start some fresh topics though, I seem to have inadvertently highjacked this thread  ::)

I've also started my personal galleries, hopefully it won't be too long before I get my allotment and will be able to document its progress as well.
Kind regards
