1. the image you wish to post in a topic or ad must reside on the internet.

2. there are no restrictions for image size - post as large an image as you like - all images will automatically be temporarily resized to 640 wide by the trad gang software for post viewing, but when clicked on will show their true large size.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE BE AWARE of using secure server images - if
the url address for your archived image(s) begins with
https instead of http we can't auto resize https
links, but you can re-edit them to 640 wide and then post.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. there are lots of FREE internet image archive sites. you register with the site and upload your image(s) then copy the unique address they provide for each image you've uploaded (from your computer) and paste it into your post or ad.

we recommend signing on with the www.imgur.com free image archive service.

4. cell phones and other mobile devices - you must first get the image(s) copied/uploaded from your phone to your computer. read your cell phone manual for the proper upload method, which may require a special cable. for some simple cell phones, like my flip phone, there is no direct method of moving images from the phone to the computer. i have to use the phone to upload the images to the cell phone vendor's site and then either use that internet address or use a graphics app to grab the screen image.

5. here is the imgur view of an image i've uploaded to the imgur server ...

 -

notice the different image url codelines on the right side of the page, the one to copy is this one ...

 -

it's code is ...

code:
[img]http://i.imgur.com/31K7Ov8.jpg[/img]

past that code into your post and trad gang will automatically resize it to 640 wide ...

 -

6. that's it!

I used photobucket and then switched to imgur. Imgur is better. You can choose the size of your photo before copying and pasting the link. You also have 3 choices of your albums security. Public, hidden or private. Hidden lets anyone you give the link to the way to seeing your album or picture, without giving the public access. Photobucket did not have that option. The resolution and layout are better also.

I recently opened imgur account to post pics here. I got the link to show up on post and if you click on it you can see the pic but have to click on link as pic does not pop up on post. Not sure what I did wrong?

code:

code:

doing a right click "view image" of the above image will show it in its true original full size.

Problem is that I am not using a mouse. Using an iPad and no BBCode shows with any thing I have tried. Any suggestions?

sorry, i know little about apple products (nor microsoft) as i use linux exclusively,

but ANY computer that doesn't have an integrated tactile input device makes no sense.
