How to Post an Image

Post by Jennifer P » Fri Apr 04, 2014 12:22 am

There are several websites available to host images for posting to forums. However, for the purposes of explaining how to post an image in this tutorial, Postimage.org will be used as an example on the Mac operating system. The steps used for this example will be similar for other sites and operating systems, but there may be slight differences. If you need further help please let us know.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Step 1
Locate the images on your computer that you wish to post on the forum. Then visit postimage.org. You can choose to upload the images without logging in, or you can create an account (recommended) which will allow you to access your uploads in the future.

Step 2
Click "browse" and locate the files on your hard drive. You can select more than one image by holding down the command key on a Mac or the control key on Windows while you select your images. Then click "choose".

Step 3
Under the resize dropdown menu select "640x480 (for message boards)." If you are logged in you have the option of filing the image into a gallery. Once you have selected all your options click "Upload It."
