Have a photo to insert into the Forum..........how the heck do I do it???????????????
There is an icon in the area where I 'm writing that says, "Insert Image" (of which I take to be like a photo), but I don't know how it works.
Can anyone help me???????????
Thanks
Cody

Here is how Cody,

You need to down load it to a photo hosting website. Some people use www.tinypics.com I use www.photobucket.com.

Follow the instructions for downloading on whichever site you choose. Then there will be a "tag" you need to clip and paste on your post. The tag maybe an <img> or a http or an url. Copy everything in the little window that contains the tag. Then just paste it in your post. I usually do a preview to make sure the picture displays before I hit post.

Hope this helps,

Dan

Dan, or anyone. I tried to use one of Epic's photos. To use like you have w/ the fish. It comes up whenm you post. i.e. 1eye's Bob Marley, or Got Muskies w/ him casting. All I get is a box w/ a red x. Is it because I use dial-up internet or did I do something wrong?

Hmmm, what format is the picture? If it is some strange format it may not work.

Epic posted them a long time ago. I'm not sure what the format was, but his (jumping fish) works, and I think hunterfishercamper's was one of those? Maybe I'll try one just like posting a photo?

Yeah, under my name, I'll try what Roadkill said. I had tried to use one from your post a long time ago. I think I tried the snapping shark. Thanks.
