When all the images are uploaded you'll be told that it was a success and take you to your albums.

Posting pictures

You have two choices on the method you use to post pictures; the first is the easiest and fastest. You need to be logged into the image hosting to use this first choice. Click on the thumbnail of the image you want to post so that the large image opens. Look below the image and you'll find the URL with the image tags all set up for you. Simply copy and past that text into your post, you don't need to add any tags since the image hosting does it for you. The image below displays the tag under the image, if you don't see the image tag you're not logged into your image hosting account.

Auto Image Tag


When writing a post, pull up your gallery and the picture you want to post. Do a right mouse click over the picture you want and choose properties out of the box that popped up. (***see example #1 below).

Example 1

From the properties box highlight the address/URL *make sure you get it all, if it is a long URL part of it may be hidden. Start at the left top of the address, at http....,and drag down to the right as far as possible to get it all(***see example #2).

Example 2

So you have the text in your post and your ready to use that image. Place the cursor in the area of the post where you want your image to show up and paste the address there, it should look something like this:

Now all you have to do is add the tags to make it show up in your post. Highlight the entire address and hit the IMG button.

If you look at the image you will see a little box in the upper right hand side, it has a red arrow pointing to it, that is the button that will add the image tags. If you look at your image address nw you will see [img] at the beginning and [/img] at the end. Your picture should end up in your post now and instead of hitting the submit buttom when you finish your post try the preview button, if everything looks OK hit submit.

If you used these directions and find that we have missed something please let un know by e-mailing us to let us know what needs to be adjusted. Thanks, and we hope you enjoy your image hosting.
