I noticed Anthony had a question on this subject and it has been brought up before, but I'll start a thread on it so it will be easy to locate in the search feature.

As you probably know, you have to upload your pictures to a website or picture site and then you put the link to it on a post. You will have to have either a digital camera or a scanner to do this. Using the JPG format compresses the photo the most, so save it in that format if using a scanner and I think all digital cameras use this format to save pictures. Most ISP's give you about 3 Megabytes of space or more for this. If your not into computers very much, some of the free picture sites would be easiest to use. Here is one the guys use. http://www.photopoint.com/index.html
To post a link to your pictures, you use these brackets [ ]with img in between, then the link, then /img in brackets [ ] at the end. You can see exactly how to do this by clicking on vB code, go down to Adding Images and it explains it all. vB code is easier than HTML code, but if you want to use it instead, you can. If I put the actual line of vB code in here, it would turn into a picture and you wouldn't see the code. I hope this helps. If not, I can email you the actual code to add your picture if you email me the location of your picture.

IHMO it is good netequitte to just put a link to a photo in a text forum such as lawnsite.

Since I have a cable modem I don't care how big a pic you post directly but think of all the folks still using 28.8 and 14.4 modems that have to wait for what might be a stupid pic to them to download.

Also if this site fills up with a lot of pics Chuck is going to have to foot the bill for more server space.

Gary, you need to click on your photo one more time for the large view, that will be the url for the photo. Should be: http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1246404&a=9209117&p=29932478&Sequence=0&res=high
