Inserting a photo or image in a post is easy to do.

Unlike an email, photos that are shown on a website must be "hosted". meaning - they must be on a computer that serves the internet (i.e. - server). Any photo or image that can be viewed on a website can be inserted into a post.

Copy and paste the image URL (browser address) or type in the address of the photo. ex: http://www.bellinghamhigh.org/images/BHSLogo1.jpg

Then you highlight the address with your mouse and click the IMG button above the window you are composing your post in. That will insert the BBCode [img][/img] around the address and will display the image.

Click the "preview" before submitting your post to make sure the image or photo is displayed.

If you have photos that are on your computer but not online they must first be hosted on a server. You can use one of the various free photo hosting services (photobucket, facebook, etc). If it is a related photo or file for your class or reunion then the forum will host if for you if you want. just send the file by email to the baord admin.

Note that images and photo addresses will not end in htm,html, etc. They must end in .jpg, .gif, .png, etc. Another way to obtain the address of a photo online is to right click the photo/image and select properties. The address will be show in the popup properties for the image or photo.
