How about hitting this link, http://www.rclargescale.com/forum/payments.php , and forget reading any farther? Do yourself, and the rest of us, a favor and just buy a star damnit!!

But, if you choose to go with one of the old cheap cliques like “I am a poor college student,” “I don’t make enough money,” “I am in between jobs,” etc etc etc……….then I will try to walk you through how to post pictures on these forums for free.

First, you need to “host” your pictures somewhere else on the internet. RCSC isn’t going to just hand out storage space for your cheap a$$. Luckily, picture hosting sites like www.photobucket.com will. There are other hosting sites out there, some good, some bad, but hell, the bucket works fine, so let’s just run with them. PB has a very convenient feature at the end of all of this (as do other hosting sites), that will make posting pics VERY easy. I am actually registering with pb and using them for the first time as I am posting this. Oh, and a lot of hosting sites won’t even let you link pics from them (Yahoo Pictures), so don’t even waste your time.

Go to www.photobucket.com and create an account, by filling out all the required info. I believe that they are pretty good with not selling you out with spam, but read the private policy statements if you are that bored. At the end of registration, they WILL try to spam you with some offers, just look for the “No thanks, continue with registration” link to the lower right of the screen. Hit on that once or twice, and you should be done.

You should now see this screen. You are now in the pb world.

In that box, type something like “Crawler Pics,” “My RC Pics,” or “I Love Zena.” Whatever you want to name the album where you will store your RC pics, then click “Create Album.” When you do this, the screen will then show your new album name under the Photo Albums text. Go ahead and click on this Album Name, in this example, I clicked on “Crawler Pics.”

This means that text that is in the box next to “Img:” is all the info that you need. If you highlight all that jazz in that box, then right click it, choose Copy, then right-click/Paste that info anywhere in your post here, the pic will show up. It is that simple!!! All you have to do is Paste that jargon in your post and it will show up………………….no extra buttons to hit, no coding needed, nothing.

NOW, if your picture is hosted somewhere that doesn’t give you the pic URL wrapped in IMG tags, you have to go through all the trouble of hitting one more button. On your picture, wherever it is on the net, right click on it, and go to “Properties.” In the properties box, you should see a URL listed as something like “Image Location,” it will start with http. You need to highlight that URL addy, right-click it, and choose Copy. In your “Post Reply” box here on RCC, you will see a little yellow button at the top that looks like a mountain landscape. When you click that button, it will open a box that gives you a line to enter text on. You need to Paste your Pic URL addy in that box. All that is doing is wrapping your pic addy in IMG tags, which is what PB does for you already in the example above.
