    Just add the img links into one of your comments. be aware though, if you didnt reserve a post for pictures straight away then it will most likely count as one of your three bumps.

    what do you mean by reserve a post for pictures?

    Click the little box on the right of the smiley box that looks like mountatins and copy the direct link to the pic in there and it shall appear.

    It means as soon as you post the thread, immediately post a reply to yourself saying 'reserved for pics' then when you have the links to your pics, edit that post with the links. That way they don't count as your 3 bumps, which would be the case if others posted replies before you got your pics up.
    I'm sure you won't understand that, I don't myself

    Surely if people ask for pics then that is a request for information which you could reply to with pics, and wouldn't count as a bump.

    Nope! if OP does that his image will be in two "img" brackets and the picture will not post!

    OP, just post the link with "img" at the start into the thread, and click submit.

    That's why i said copy the Direct Link...........not the img file.

    Oh right, sorry.

    I always just copy the img link. that way you don't need to mess about and can just copy it into the box without clicking this and that

    You would think so, but I'm pretty sure they count as bumps. You should post pics in a FS thread anyway, without people having to ask, and as you can't put pics in an opening post, reserving the first reply straight away is the only way to avoid unnecessary bumps.

    OMG, lol... OP please listen.

    Step 1. Go to this link tinypic.com

    Step 2. Click browse and choose the file you wan't to upload

    Step 3. Click the green box "Upload now"

    Step 4. You will then have to write in a captcha word (to prove to their system your not a computer program)

    Step 5. Wait a moment while it uploads your picture

    Step 6. There are now a number of links, you need to use the one with this heading "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" simply copy that link and then paste it in the thread.

    Job done, I have explained as simply as possible. Hope this helps
