This is a help file for people who need to know how to attach images to and into their posts.

The 1st way:
Hosting an image on an image hosting site. I personally use photobucket, but everyone has their own preference as to which site they host an image on. However the method remains the same.
The best way to display that kind of image is this way.

Code:
[img]direct link to image[/img] BB code.


Doing that will result in this:

Image

Keep in mind that the forums only allow images up to 800 pixels wide. For larger images you need to use the:

Code:
[advthumb]direct link to image[/advthumb]BB code.


Using the same image link results in this:
Image

photobucket also has it's own thumb feature that you can use here on this forum as well.
Code:
[URL=http://s37.photobucket.com/albums/e86/ripwardog/stuff/?action=view&current=06a0684a.jpg][IMG]http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e86/ripwardog/stuff/th_06a0684a.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

I used that so it more clearly illustrates what photobucket offers:

I'm not a salesman for photobucket however the service is great and you get quite a lot for free. :)

The second way to do it would be to use the file attachment feature of the forum like this:
Notice how the images were appended to the bottom of the post?
I'll expand upon this shortly. (Work in Progress)
