    Adding Photos to Threads

    I'm having such a hard time using the uploader to add photos to threads. I get an error whether I try to upload from my computer or a website. For web addresses, I copy the image url and get a "not a valid image file" from a regular JPG that shows up fine using the image address in my browser.

    I have some great resources I'd like to share, but nobody wants them without seeing a photo! Can anybody point me towards a tutorial on the forum where I can learn what I'm doing wrong? Or a better way to add photos to a thread? Thank you!

    upload your image to a free imagehoster and embed the link to your hosted image in your forum post with the image tags.

    Do not use the attachment system of forum, use the external service, like photobucket, imageshack...

    Take a look to tony 7's tutorial in this thread, you will find some good advice there:

    Also: As a safety precaution, never directly link images from corporate sites -- download them to your desktop first.
