in the bottom of my screen is my permissions box and it says IMG code is on.
when i click on this it brings me to a list that says this means I can embed images in my post.
How can I do this?
I'm planning to do a review on some stoves next weekend and would like to put the pictures in amungst my text.
does this mean I can do this or do I have to do the Photobucket thing? I'm not a big fan of that!
Hey Mike, I'm a techy, so I'll help as much as I can.
To embed an image, you use BB code, which is a language the forums understand.
Basically, typ and and put the Direct link of the image in between them. You can get this by uploading a photo to Photobucket and/or Imageshack etc and they will provide a direct link.
An example would be as follows:

EDIT: Useless, the CODE tag is supposed to disable any code within them, who wrote this forum anyway!? :P Ah well, you can see what it means, I just had to put a space inside the [ ]'s to stop it working.
Now, that typed into the box usually would produce this:
Just a piece of graphics work I did.
I hope that was clear, if not, say so and I'll use pictures to explain.
Look on Youtube, there are explanations of how to upload to PB and then link your pictures on a forum. It is one of those things you take for granted once you know how to do it. Seriously, I remember the problems I had at the start and now wonder why people struggle! It is easy, but only once you know how and having somebody show you makes it so much easier!
