I'm a Fish Sniffer Rookie and cannot figure out how to post a picture?

Am I missing a simple FAQ or a permission that explains how to do so?

Thanks.

You missed the sticky at the very top of this forum. It is a PITA. I recommend Imageshack as your hosting site. If you have problems, just keep posting back to this thread and we'll help you through it.

Super Dave:

I'm moderately computer savey but I'm missing the "Sticky" at the very top of the forum". What does PITA stand for? What does the sticky look like?

I've played with the "Insert Image" icon with no success.

I know nothing about Imageshack, a hosting site.

I'm having problems, thanks for volunteering to help me through it.

Regards,

When SD says posting pictures is a PITA it's short for "Pain In The A@#"

Follow this link, it's the sticky SD mentioned that's at the top of the page.

Image Shack can be confusing too, they give you several links to use, copy the one that says "Direct" or "Direct Link to Image", when you are posting select the "Picture" Icon http://img216.imageshack.us/img216/7623/imglb0.gif and paste the link between the

FYI, Before you load your pictures to Image Shack you will need to resize your pictures so they are no wider than 450 pix wide otherwise they will be cut off on the right side.

Thanks, I'll try, though the instructions seem rather convoluted.

By the way I still cannot figure out what is meant by the "sticky". I still cannot figure out where it is at the top of this page.

Thanks, again.

It's at the top of the "Talk to the Sniffer Board" under the "Important Topics" area. The posts there are referred to as stickied at the top of the board.

Guy- I had problems, too. Best advice I got was from Troutfan, who simplified it nicely. Will try to copy it here.


You never need to be embarassed becasue you can us the preview feature before you post. *To summarize: *I get into imageshack, hit the browse button and it will go to your pic folder on your hard drive. *Highlight the pic you want. *Then I hit the "host it" button. *Next several different lines of code come up and I use the one on the bottom of the page; "Direct link to image" *
I put this code inbetween the brackets . *To get these go to the icons above the smilies and it's the third one from the top left. *I hope this helps.
