First you need a photoserver.
I use http://www.photobucket.com
- you get a free gigabite, which at the size we should be posting here is about 10,000 photos.
Before you start, crop and/or resize your photo so that it is no more than 600 to 750 pixels wide - then resave it with a new name so that you don't write over your high-resolution original.
The reason you do this is so your photo will fit the screen - otherwise, it till be too big for the screen and will annoy everyone by scrolling the entire thread.
Or, if you're not good at resizing your photos, load them onto photobucket directly (step 2). . Then, from photobucket, if you click on your photo. it will give you the option to resize
your uploaded photo down to 640 pixels wide, which is just right (and won't affect the original on your computer).
To load your photo, from photobucket Browse
your documents to locate the photo, and upload
your photo onto photobucket.
Copy the IMG Code
for your photo and paste it in the message box for your post.
You can also copy the Direct link
for your photo, paste it in the message box, highlight it, and click the Img
button above the message box.
either way, the argument on your post for your image should look like this:
(but with NO spaces between the img tags and the link; also note that the correct link will end in .jpg)
make sure you scroll to the end of your photo argument and then hit a return (Enter) to stack your photos vertically...
otherwise, they'll line up side-to side and scroll the thread again...

I don't know how many photos I have on photobucket, and I am using 6% of my alloted free space, and about 1% of my alloted bandwidth.
If you plan to use it a lot, make sub-folders in photobucket to keep your photos organized - otherwise, you may do a lot of searching to find them...
I even have a bat cave video on photobucket
