Go to www.snapfish.com
Follow instructions to open a free account (online photo album) (snapfish will automatically resize your pics perfectly for forum posting)
Upload chosen pics from your PC
Once uploaded, click on pic to take it from thumbnail size to full size.
Now right click on the pic, then click on "properties"
Now highlight the pictures' URL address ( the tricky part is the entire address does not show until you highlight it and scroll down and see the hidden third line of the address)
Copy this complete URL address
Now go post or reply on Tidalfish (or any board)
Paste the URL address
Now add [ img ] to the beginning of the link and [ /img ] at the end. This lets the computer know that you want the pic posted instead of a link. Or you can click on the gray button beside the window you are typing your reply in. The grey image box is just under the smiley choices. Clicking it will automatically post the [ img ] and [ /img ] for you, then you can put your cursor between them and paste your link. Okay, take note. Above I had to put extra spaces in the " Bracket img Bracket" to keep it from giving a red X trying to post a pic. So, when you type it, there is no space between the brackets and the img .
Using the "image" button is easier.
You can try it before you open your snapfish account. Right click on any picture on the internet. Copy the address and try pasting it in one of your own replys. Just go and edit a previous post of yours.
(you bunch of internet rookies![grin] If you would spend more time on here and less time fishing, you would already know this stuff.[tongue]) Good luck.
