We've gone through this before (and possibly this ought to be in Geeks Corner, but anyway).

Use the [img] and [/img] tags around the URL of an image. For example this text:

[img]http://jakal.sp.ph.ic.ac.uk/~timo/TestImageLowCompression.jpg[/img]

will produce this image:

Image

Don't try and use an image which doesn't finish with the extension for an image like .jpg, .gif or .png. The phpBB code on the sr.com server doesn't seem to like this, and you won't get an image.

You can use the "quote" button on this post to inspect the code used to produce the image (I've used some tricks so you can see the tags, this will dissapear when you look at the posted text).

Nev ............I have been exarsperated for weeks on this prob.


Go here to paste your pic. http://www.imageshack.us/

right click on your picture to get the URL in "Properties", copy that URL between [img} & [img] on the posting page and your image "should" appear.

Then follow this instruction if you only get a thumbnail:

Its only a thumbnail because thats what link you copied from there you can also copy the main picture if you want.

The easy way here is to take the ".th" from the end of the address....

"http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/5782/finaltakeoff014pb.th.jpg"

and change it to

"http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/5782/finaltakeoff014pb.jpg"

Then when you put it in image tags...

It should be mentioned to NOT link to pictures on someone else's site (unless you get their permission first and put a credit alongside the pic). It's not only copyright infringement it also steals bandwidth from someone else that they have to pay for.
