    What's the best way to upload images?

    Can I do it direct from my pc or do I have to use an image website like tinypic?

    Seem to be having issues at the moment getting them to show on the new site using the tinypic.com method I used to use.

    Always use an image host like tinypic who will give you a url.
    then when posting the icon next to the smiley face will give you a dialogue box to paste that url into. job done.

    Thanks Meister. Think it was an issue with tinypic rather than me addi gbit incorrectly.

    Seems ok now.

    You can do it from your PC

    Next to <Post Reply> is <Upload a File>

    Choose the image on your PC, then click on <Full Image>

    Then click on post reply.

    What ive found doing that is that the photo doesnt actually post but instead you get a clickable link to the photo.
    Am i doing something wrong?

    I search the picture on Google, then right click, save image to 'Pictures'. then click 'Upload a File' and click on the picture, then click on 'Full Image' or you can click 'Thmubnail' your choice.

    Unfortunately, I'm not techie enough to know how it works, it just does for me.

    Sorry dude.

    Hi guys, absolute technophobe here, how do I add a table from excel onto a thread? I've tried copy and paste and it posts it without the column and row structure plus no colour etc

    I would print screen, crop to only show the table, upload image and then link to it.
