How to add images to posts on the forum?
« on: June 02, 2013, 01:59:57 PM »
How do I add images to posts. I have an illustration that I think is relevant to a topic and I would like to add to a page on the forum. I would like to use the *.png format. I will convert to the correct format (if I know what that is?)

I just don't know how to go about adding the image and should the image be served elsewhere on the Internet or do you upload it. I want to contribute something that I think may help some people I just don't understand how to add an image >:( :'(

The image needs to be hosted on an external site.  Depending on the resolution of the image (900x900px maximum), you may need to link a thumbnail.

Then use the [img] tags to embed the image in the forums.  Hint:  Press the little mona lisa button just above the smilies when you are making a reply.
