ok ladies and gents. lets get started. please take your seats. thank you. todays lesson, is about posting pics within threads in the new forum. posting a pic within a thread in the new forums is VERY SIMILAR to what you did in the old forum. first. find the pic you want to insert in the thread. RIGHT CLICK on the picture with your mouse, and a menu will come up. go down to the bottom and LEFT CLICK on "properties". a PROPERTIES window will come up. LEFT CLICK and highlight the URL ADDRESS. now RIGHT CLICK, and click COPY. you have now put that URL address into your computers memory. close that window. look at this address. http://gallery.viperclub.org/data/500/thumbs/new_b.JPG this address goes to this picture: look at this address. http://gallery.viperclub.org/data/500/medium/new_b.JPG this address goes to this picture: THEY ARE THE SAME PIC, arent they? but notice they have DIFFERENT URL ADDRESSES. if you copy the URL address for a small pic, you will get a SMALL PIC. if you copy the URL address for a big pic, you will get a BIG pic. OK? to add the pic you have chosen into a thread in the new forum, you will need to be in the "REPLY TO THREAD" screen. (that is the scren with all the smiley faces on it.) look for THIS ICON: (insert image) click on this icon and another window will pop up. that window wants to know the URL ADDRESS of the photo you are trying to insert. you copied that earlier, remember? delete everything in the box, then RIGHT CLICK, and click "paste" to insert the address you copied earlier. click "OK". go down to the bottom and click on "Preview Post". you should see your image! AGAIN, the process is VERY SIMILAR to what you did before, you just have to make sure to click on the right icon. hope this helps some of you. GOOD LUCK!
