The way to post pictures on the forums is to have somewhere to "host" them.

Best places (and free) are the following:

- www.hunt101.com
- www.photobucket.com

You go there and create a free account, then upload your pictures to the site. It will give you a URL with the image (Img) tags in it or you can click on the "Img" button above twice, once before the URL and once after to close it. This way your pictures will show up in your post.

As a computer geek, we sometimes take things for granted.

A member here asked me to better clarify the instructions for those of you who aren't computer geeks, so here's his contribution on how to add pictures to a post.

This is for Photobucket users;
  1. Open 2 explorer windows, one for your ad/post and one for Photobucket.
  2. In Photobucket, click on the box next to IMG on the photos you want to appear in your ad/post.
  3. Go to your ad/post in NortheastShooters, put the cursor where you want the photos to appear, and also make sure the cursor is blinking, (which means your actually there),
  4. Then "click on paste" to post photos, paste in my case was a drop down by clicking page.
  5. NOTE: You should leave at least 1 BLANK LINE between multiple pictures. Do NOT put more than one on a line (or readers will need to scroll across multiple screens to see them all).
