B. Posting Photos from your Computer
Unfortunately it isn't possible to upload images along with your post. In order to post images, they must be hosted somewhere and then linked to in your post. There are a number of web sites where you can host your image and use the link in your post:...or find more free image hosts here.

For this tutorial, you will learn how to post photos uploaded through Imageshack: www.imageshack.us

I. Go to www.imageshack.us , click on "Browse" and select your desired photo. Then confirm your choice and click on "host it!"


II. Copy the direct link to the image


III. On the posting area, click on the "Insert Image" icon


IV. Paste the URL on the pop-up script
(IE)

(Firefox)


V. Post it and Voila!
