Here are three methods to post photos in either the Gallery or Discussion area. I see enough people asking I thought I would post it.
Ok, you have two easy ways to do it and one hard way

1) For quick posting: Go to www.tinypic.com.

Click the "Browse" button to find the picture you want to post from your computer.

Select the picture then click "Host It". After a few moments (depending on connection speed and size of the image) a few tags will appear at the bottom.

Simply copy and paste the entire contents of the "Tag" entry into your forum post.
Viola, you have posted a picture.

2) Recommended:Start a photobucket album (www.photobucket.com). Every time you post a picture, you will have a "Tag" entry to cut and paste into your forum posts. This is the benefit over the other online photo album sites.

3) Most difficult: Go to a picture you have posted in your Webshots or other album.

Right click on the photo and choose "Properties".

You will see the image url. Copy this URL and paste it into your forum post.

In front of the url add (img src=" including the quote but change the ( to a <

At the end of the pasted url add "> including the quote.

This process will work to link to any photo on the internet.
This will link back to your Webshots or other hosted photo.

That is photo posting 101. Good Luck.

A word of caution. Do not post a link back to tinypic in the "Optional URL Link". At times, people post undesirable pictures on tinypic.com. You do not want anyone to accidently browse to the next anonymous post to find an undesired photo.

The one that says TAG (you just cut and past the entire thing, including the brackets).

Ok, thx. It seems if the picture is too "big", Tinypic will make it a "link" to click on. I think if I resize the picture first, then do tinypic and use "tag", it will post it right there on the board.
Is my thinking right?
thanks

Angie,

I am building a pool in Chico CA and absolutely love your decking overhang. Who did you have design and build it....and what did it cost you?
We would love to do something like that over the deck in our back yard.

Thanks in advance,
Shawn

Would this also work for a Mac?

Thanks for posting the instructions, I looked all over the GW site and didn't see anything.

Is there a way to post a picture file(several pix). I wanted to do a progress post, like before, during, and after shots.
Thanks,

Oh well, tried the hard method and guess the url is too long and it wrapped so wouldn't work. Thanks for the instructions though.
