    This a question that comes up often even if not asked publicly
    How do I insert a picture into my post? :?::help:

    Our board does not support the ability to cut and paste pictures directly into your post :stop:

    But we do offer a way to directly do this
    With this option you will need to have your pictures hosted
    I personally use http://photobucket.com/ very user friendly
    (But you must log into your free account at least every 90 days or your pictures become dormant and will be blocked until you log in again, not to worry they are safely stored and wont be lost)

    Once you create a user account you will have the ability to upload a picture right off your computer and into photo bucket:nike:

    After uploaded into photo bucket
    Copy your pictures URL address listed as Direct link
    And insert into your post by clicking on our insert picture tab

    [​IMG]
    View of tab located center of user options on post tool bar
    [​IMG] View of individual tab


    Rules for posting photo's are simple
    Keep them appropriate, we have members of all age groups:yes2557:

    We do allow posting adult themed pictures here only Unmoderated Forum :biggrin_25515:(please read adult forum rules before posting)

    We would prefer the pictures be in medium format, but will allow pictures up to 800 by 800 pixels (moderators may remove pictures that are to big or in poor taste):biggrin_25525:

    Many of our members live and connect to our board from their trucks
    Many have limits on how much data they can transfer each month
    Out of courteousness please limit the amount and size of pictures per post:biggrin_255:


    Pictures can be a fun and enjoyable way of sharing with other members
    Please respect our Forum Rules and good luck:headbang:

    This is an old good tutorial from the old forum. I'll give it a little refreshing.

    First, the forum has one old residual bug from long ago we haven't found. Pictures don't always load correctly. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. But, we found a remedy that if you first click on on "Go Advanced" and construct your picture post from there it does work 100% of the time.

    Mastertech's toolbar pictures are from the old forum. Here's the new one so it looks a little more familiar. Click on picture to expand them.

    FIRST

    THEN TO UPLOAD A PICTURE FROM YOUR COMPUTER

    insert2.jpg


    OR TO UPLOAD FROM A PHOTO HOSTING WEBSITE LIKE PHOTOBUCKET

    If you still have problems then message a moderator.
