i know this subject has been discussed but i can't find the thread. i was trying to post some pictures and it won't let me upload them, that the mb bytes exceed the forum limit. i then got an account on photobucket, downloaded them onto there and tried transfering them using a url address and it still says i'm exceeding the limit. there just individual pictures, any advice on what i need to do, not to good at this computer stuff. thanks for any help. good fish'n to all

This is what I use http://www.picturetrail.com/ and after I up-load I just copy and paste forum url. I'm sure there are better ways but thats a way that has worked so far.

I find resizing them to 640x480 makes a nice posting size. Download and use the excellent free picture program Irfanview. Use irfanview to resize to the above size - Image tab - Resize, then go to the File tab - Save as - name the pic and put it somewhere you can find it on your hard drive. Sign up with photobucket and upload your resized pics. Copy the IMG url below the pictures in photobucket for each pic and just past it in the text of the post.

Let me know if you need any help.

KCMO, I had trouble figuring it out myself. Even with the good instruction on the site I still had trouble. Finally had someone show me. I use photobucket and size them 640x480, I believe it even says for posting on message boards. copy and then paste in your post. You can always preview the post before you send it.
