    Ive noticed a number of members both new and more experieced who have requested how to post pics. Im going to compile the three main methods for posting pics here uploading from your computer, posting online pics and attaching pics.

    Uploading from your computer

    Firstly go to the top lefthand corner of the screen to techpowerup and go down to free image hosting.

    [​IMG]

    Then you will have the upload image screen

    [​IMG]

    Now click on the browse button

    [​IMG]

    find the drive and folder were you have the pic you want to upload. Click on pic then click submit to upload.

    [​IMG]

    After uploading your pic will be displayed and two lines will be displayed underneath copy the bottom line.

    [​IMG]

    Then paste the line were you type your posts. Then post.

    [​IMG]

    *Note files with % in them wont post rename without then post.

    Posting online pics

    firstly where you post the image button is the button used here.

    [​IMG]

    Online find a pic you would like to post and find the URL either from the top address bar or right click on pic and copy URL.

    [​IMG]

    Next click on the image shown in pic 7and a popup will be displayed

    [​IMG]

    Remove http and post URL

    [​IMG]

    Then press ok and post.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    *Note pic 12 is a preview post as didnt want to post.

    Posting attachments

    Go to were you post and click on Go Advanced

    [​IMG]

    Click on the attacments button circled and an Manage attchments popup will be displayed.

    [​IMG]

    Click on browse and find the pic you want to upload then click upload when uploaded will come up under current attacments.

    [​IMG]

    Close the Manage Attachments windows were it says at the top then click on the attacment button again and the attacment tags and pics will be displayed were you post.

    [​IMG]

    Finally post away.

    [​IMG]

    *Note previewed to attacment as didnt want to post.

    I hope many of you find this useful as i know when i joined it took me ages to figure out how to post. Thank you for reading and post on TPUers.

    Oh and forgot to menchin Tpu capture used for screen shots zooming in on screenshots :eek: uploading images and other great stuff check it out.

    *Thanks to Dippy for reminding me. :eek:

    I agree, very nice guide! Hopefully people will now understand how to post pictures the easy and simple way.
    I'm thinking this should be sticky'd?

    i even use it together with windows image viewer to upload images.

    loved it trip

    i've done a similar thing on another site only problem was it didn't host pics :eek:-:wtf:-:shadedshu so i had to upload them to rapid with a 1 2 3 guide and an appology so that people didn't think i was being patronising
    (you'd be supprised the amount of people who get annoyed and think i am being:laugh::D)
    as i say in response to them problems are easier to remedy when your at the actual machine or have or can receive pics then stuff gets sorted quicker

    p's loved pic no 8:laugh::roll::laugh: brilliant

    and yes for the less technically aware this topic should be stickied

    i also beleive that when you sign up to tpu the agreement page should be made to be slow in some way and the click here, down at the bottom of the page so people have to read through the forums rules
    so they don't get infractions or banned for mischeiveous or despicable posts including pics and copyrighted material;)
