    Using www.Tinypic.com , TinyPic is a better feature than Photobucket as you don't need an album.

    Click on the link above and open the website.
    There you will see a Browse button,

    [​IMG]

    When you click on it, a pop-up into you computer will appear
    Click on the image you want and then click on the Open button

    [​IMG]

    The url of the image will appear in the browse box

    [​IMG]

    You will then need to choose a size for the uploaded image. Generally 640x480 is sufficient.
    Now click the UPLOAD NOW! button

    [​IMG]

    Then this box will appear. It's called a Human Verification which means that spider bots can't do things on the site as they won't be able to read it! The words are deliberately 'funny' in order to make then difficult to read.

    However, if you really can't read the words, just click on the refresh icon [​IMG]and new words will appear. When you have written the words in the box, hit "UPLOAD NOW". This may take several seconds, even as long as a minute if the site is busy.

    Finally this page will appear

    There are 4 links to choose from but you will need the bottom one Direct Link for Layout.
    If you click on it, it will go black meaning it is 'selected'
    Now place your cursor on the black part, right click and choose copy. The link is now on your Clipboard.

    In the post you are creating, go to the Insert Image icon which looks like this [​IMG] When you click on it, a pop-up appears

    [​IMG]

    Remove the text in the box and then right click and choose Paste.

    [​IMG]

    The url will be pasted in the box.
    Now click OK and the image will appear in the post.

    Using www.Photobucket.com

    Note: PB needs you to create an album to upload images from your computer. If you move or delete the image from your computer, it will disappear from PB. Likewise, if you move or delete an image from PB it will disappear from every place you have posted it.

    Go to the Uploader and click on the blue button

    [​IMG]

    When your image has uploaded, you will get this page where you can add a title to it.
    Then click Save and Get Links

    [​IMG]

    Now you get taken to your album where the images have 3 links beneath them. You will need to copy the bottom Link called IMG code.

    Go to the post you are creating and right click your mouse button and 'paste' the code into your reply/topic.

    Finish off your reply and submit.
