  • Posting pictures.

    need an account somewhere eg

    when you upload a picture there you get a url eg

    You simply copy and paste this link into your message, then ad [*img] at the front of the link, and [*/img] at the end. like this but without the * [*IMG][/IMG*]

    It will come out like this

  • Hi. once you have your pictures on your photobucket account.The picture will be given a number.You need to write down the number of the shot that you want to post andthe easiest way is just to type it into the reply box exactly as it's given on your account.Toi get teh photo to come up you need to use the "img" tags front and back.

    example [ img]   the pictures tag number/description   [ /img]  I've left spaces between the first bracket so it does not show up as a rd "x" here. When you go to post teh shot make sure that their is no space between teh bracket and the img.

    Fire me off an email if you can't get it.


  • And now I can fianlly add some pics here. Just i'll add them from my website.
