How to post pictures if your are using Firefox browser

Post by Sandblaster » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:13 pm

Since we are a small forum just getting started we don't have the fancy pants setup that allows for direct picture posting.
However, you can still post pictures here and it's not too hard.
This method is not the only way to post pictures but you will get the general idea.
First you must have a picture somewhere on the web.
It could be on another forum or someplace like photobucket.com or facebook.com
Look at the upper left corner of our screen.
See the yellow bike?
I will use this as an example.
Put your cursor on the picture and right click one time.
It will look like this:
Image

Next, left click one time on "Copy image location"
In this example it is the 6th from the top.
Yours may be in a slightly different place but the text will be the same.
Then put your cursor in the text box where you want the image to appear and left click one time.
You should see a box as follows:
Image

Then left click one time on "Paste"
In this example you will see the following text:
Image

Now, highlight the entire text by putting the cursor at the beginning or end of the text, pressing the left mouse button down, and while holding it down, move the cursor so that the entire line is highlighted.
If you do it right it will look like this:
Image

Now, while leaving the text highlighted look up a few inches and find the "Img" button and left click on it one time.
It looks like this:
Image

Once you have clicked on the "Img" button you will notice that your highlighted text has gotten longer.
This is because some extra text has been added to the front and back of your highlighted text.
Your highlighted should now look like this:
Image
You can now click on the "Submit" button to post your picture or you can type some more text or add more pics.
It seems a little complicated and long but after you do it a few times you can do it in a few seconds.
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.
