    How To Post Pictures, Resize Pictures and Add/Edit Your Avatar

    Not Safe for Work Rules and Guidelines

    If you want to post pictures, first you need to get a photo host, like Photobucket or Imageshack or ImageEvent

    In order to post a picture in your posts, you need to follow these three easy steps:

    1) Resize your photo and save it as a JPG.
    - If your picture is too big (ie larger than 800x600 pixels) it will take too long for everyone to download and it won't fit on most people's screens.
    - If you don't already have photo editing software, there's an excellent freeware utility called Easy Thumbnails that couldn't be any easier to use.

    2) Host the photo on a webserver.
    - If your internet service provider doesn't include web space, use Imageshack. There's no registration required and it's ridiculously easy.

    3) Link to the photo in your post.
    - You can either use the insert image button in the Post New Thread window or you can use IMG tags in your post like this:
    HTML Code:
    **If you can't find the address of your picture you can always right click on the picture and then look for "Link Properties" then you'll see the "Address"


    How To Add and Edit Your Avatar

    1. Edit your pic to proper size, cannot bigger than 175 (Left column minus 5 pixel margins) x 125 (previously 96x196), as well as 100.00KB will remain the upload limit

    2. Click Your Account

    3. Click Edit Avatar

      1. You can browse your own computer for a new avatar (Upload an Avatar From Your Computer: )

      2. You can add a link to where your avatar is hosted (Enter Avatar URL: )

        1. Find image uploader

        2. Upload your pictures

        3. Copy that [IMG] link

        4. Click User CP on your top-left corner

        5. Click Edit Avatar of Control Panel on your top-left corner

        6. Check Use Custom Avatar

        7. Post that link without [IMG] into the field

        8. Save changes

    For example, Original Avatar:


    Altered To:
