Option #1: Hosting your pictures here at AutoBody101.com
To host your pictures here, use the "upload attachment" tab down below, when you are making a new post:
Browse your computer, and find the file (photo) you wish to upload, then click on the add the file button. This will upload the file from your computer to the AutoBody101.com server. (Note: The maximum file size is 5 Meg. If your photos are larger, please use your a photo editor to re-scale the photo so it fits within this size constraint.)
You'll get a new section now showing up below your post -- it will say "Posted Attachments", and you can click on the place inline button to get the attachment to be included in the post you are editing/creating:
Use the Preview button for your post to see how everything will look.
Option #2: Using a separate hosting account (e.g. photobucket)
If you have a photo hosted elsewhere, please consider also uploading it here (see option #1 above). If you really want to simply link to the photo, you can use the Img button up above the editor for the post you are editing. Copy and paste the URL for your image into your post, then highlight the entire URL and click the Img button. It will place the correct BBCode syntax around the URL for your image, which will create a link to the image within your post. The syntax looks like this:
- Code: Select all
Once you have the link inside your post with that syntax, your photo will be linked directly. Again, use the Preview button to see what your post will look like before you submit it.
