Thanks Sis, I'm sure this will help many members.

Cute kitty. :)

Sister Wolf:
;) Thanks.  He's got two speeds: exitosus turbo, and sleep.

He just got his big sister Hannah the pit bull in big, big, big trouble.  He was attacking her legs, and she stepped on him and made him limp around for a good 5 minutes.  I had to send her to bed, and boy is she worried about that kitten.  He just walked in the bedroom, carrying his favorite toy (that thing with the feathers on it), so I'm sure there's a peace treaty going on right now.  =)

Mr. Bill:
Nice video, SW!

BTW, for anyone who doesn't want to establish an account with an image-hosting service, there are several who will let you upload anonymously.  For example: ImageShack or  (This is not an endorsement, just a couple of services I've run into.)  Or, if you have your own website, you can host the image yourself.

To post an image manually, just click the Insert Image button, and put the URL of your image between the tags, like so:

--- Code: ---[img][/img]
--- End code ---

Advanced image posting with thumbnails:

With many image-hosting services, this isn't very advanced at all.  The service will automatically generate a thumbnail of your image, and the correct code to insert it in a post.

If you want to do this manually, here's how:

First, make a thumbnail (miniature version) of your image, using your favorite software (Photoshop, GIMP, etc), save it under a different name, and upload it (along with the original) to your image-hosting service or web server.

Here's my original image:

And my thumbnail:

Click the Insert Hyperlink button and then the Insert Image button:

--- Code: ---[url][img][/img][/url]
--- End code ---

Following the first url, insert an equals sign and the URL of your original image:

--- Code: ---[url=][img][/img][/url]
--- End code ---

Then, between the img tags, insert the URL of your thumbnail image:

--- Code: ---[url=][img][/img][/url]
--- End code ---

You're done!  Here's the result -- a thumbnail which is a clickable link to the full-size original:

If your original image is large, using thumbnails will be a help to forum members with slow Internet connections.  It will also decrease the load on whatever server is hosting your images.

Awesome instructional vid Sis! Nice software you have there too. Wish my connection was that quick. :)

Oh, and ...


That is all.  ;D
