Postby notax » Sun Feb 09, 2014 10:25 pm

Chris, This was posted on the British Rally forum, it deals with resizing which is half the hurdle you need to cross:

1) Goto tinypic.com http://tinypic.com/

2) Click on the Browse button and find/select the picture from your pc that you need to host and double click it with the left mouse button.

3) In the resize box on the tinypic screen select the dropdown option for Website/Email (320x240)

4) Click the green upload button

5) An anti spam box will open up - type the text you see into the answer box

6) Once uploaded into cyber space you will see 4 yellow boxes with writing in them, left mouse click on the second line so it turns black, when its black right mouse click on it again and select <copy>

7) Put your cursor inside your reply box on the forum then right click the mouse button and select paste.

8) Click submit on the forum page

We should all then be able to see your picture in small format.

OR

You can also go on youtube, theres a few photobucket tutorials on there - play them on your phone while you compute!

Good luck, you can always do a trial post on this thread, and see how it goes! 8)
