they told me to sign up for an account on " photobucket.com" and then you can upload your pictures to your photobucket account.

then if you click on each uploaded picture, you will see a link to " share" the picture and there you will find the " required code" to post any picture on forums and/or public pages.

It is EASY...

Thank you.... you did it.

Hey, I like the colors. I remember myself commenting somewhere on one of these threads a few weeks ago that I 'd love to see something in kind of green/black in downtown Toronto...well, look at that. it is going to become reality too.

Now that God has answered my prayer, I wish for something really Bright Silver with a golden spike on top in downtown before 2012!

God, please make that be my X-mas present.

Yup just as easy as you said it would be. It is a nice shade of green. I would like 1 Bloor to get completed as tall as it was supposed to be. would be a nice rival to Trump.

They'd be considerable opposition in Toronto, but I'd prefer if 1 Bloor went taller than that last proposal. Something around 325-350 metres to anchor Yorkille and bookend the downtown.

We already have the CN Tower and the CBD at one end. It would be wonderful to create another cluster that size near Yonge/Bloor.

Yes, Toronto needs to Cluster a midtown similar to New York with its separate clusters. and 1 Bloor should be that staple height to start that with a min. 300m height.

Oh it is easy, it will be wonderful if you would make an effort and post it. We'd love to see it.

I didn't know it either, Taller Better told me to sign up and make an account on www.photobucket.com , then upload the pictures to my photobucket account.

When the picture is uploaded, I can select it by clicking on it and then if you notice atop of the picture, you will see a link to " share" the picture. if you follow the link by clicking on " more" , there you can see the required code in order to post on a forum. Now you simply copy and past the link code on SCC.

E A S Y !!!
