    For posting pics with the new forum, when i right click on my newly uploaded picture I right click, hit properties, and a window pops up...under IMAGE properties find the "Location" and copy that. There should be a " .jpg " after the end of the url.
    Goood guy!

    I think you'll need to have the picture on a place like WEBSHOT then right click then go to properties and copy the URL and paste on to the picture link on message

    I haven't tried with any other place, but anything like cardomain, ck5 gallery, and other stuff like that WILL work with the method i said. and MOST pictures off of other online sites work too...for example... the BOTD :xmas:

    I've been using www.imageshack.us to host pics. Its easy, unlimited and free. Host the pic, cut and paste the URL from imageshack and you are done.

    Webshots doesn't allow direct linking. So you just have to post a link to the webpage.
    You can also try cardomain, a lot of other people on here use cardomain. I don't use it, I just use my ck5 gallery.

    And everyone thinks I ask a lot of questions:grin:

    1. If you upload your pics to imageshack or cardomain, and want a picture from there onto CK5... you need to get the "URL" *refer to other thread where I told you how to do that* copy it, and post it on HERE by clicking the picture (" [​IMG]" ) and pasting the URL into there.

    2. What do you mean other pics? From other sites? Or from other users on here? Or do you mean taking your cardomain/imageshack picture when you on ck5? Explain a bit more....

    3. If you find a cool picture somewhere else, you can either right click and hit "save as" and save it on your COMPUTER and upload it onto ck5, imageshack, or cardomain, then get the URL from there and post it (This way you always have that picture if you want to use it again). OR... you can just right click, hit properties, find the image address, and copy it onto here. If you do it that way you will have to remember where you copied it from so if you need to use it again you can find it.



    EDIT:
    Where I said "imageshack" I meant photobucket, liek TJ was talking about. Sory
