    For members who are not familiar with how to post pictures to posts on Heavy Equipment Forums, here's a "how to" tutorial to help them with the process. There's a couple of ways to post pics, this method is an easy way to do it. There is an auto-resizer so there's no need to manually resize pics. Allowed formats are jpg, jpeg, png, and gif files.

    Posting pics can be done in either the "Quick Reply" box or in the "Advanced Reply" box. This tutorial will be shown in the "Quick Reply" box since it works the same in the "Advanced Reply" box.

    To attach a pic or a file to a post, click on the "Insert Image" icon,


    Insert Image Icon.jpg


    This will bring up the Image Uploader box. To upload a pic or file from your computer files, make sure the "From Computer" icon is highlighted.

    Then click on the "Select Files" button.

    Once the file is attached to the uploader, click the "Upload File(s)" button.


    upload file.jpg


    This will attach the file to the post. Keep in mind that it will be attached wherever you had the cursor positioned. If you wish to have text preceed the attached image, write the desired text, then drop the cursor down a few lines to give space between text and image.

    Now that the image file is attached to a post, you can either click "Quick Reply", or if you wish to preview the image before you actually post it to a thread, click on "Go Advanced".


    quick reply or advanced.jpg


    If you click the "Go Advanced button", you'll see how the image will be posted.

    If everything looks good, click on "Submit Reply" at the bottom of the message box below the preview and it will post your reply with attached image to the forum.
