It took me a while to figure it out. I had to use the little tree picture next to the big A to insert images. Turns out the the old bracket system is gone. Instead of [img] it's now with the carrots <img>. But you can still just copy the photobucket URL into the line when it pops up after clicking the little tree picture.
Exbiologist is correct, the insertion of photos is different now. One suggestion I would make is to enter a width for your image, then the system will automatically resize your photo proportionately and it won't "spill" over the edges. I would recommend a width of 500 wide, but you can play with it and see what looks good.
You can also upload to our servers as attachments. Your photos will display as thumbnails, but the new photo lightbox is really cool. Click on any thumbnail now and if it's a very large image, you can even zoom in. The zoom tool is right above the X that closes the lightbox window. I've uploaded a photo so you can see an example.
The help file linked under Contribute in your link box has some helpful tips on how to insert photos directly into a post. Submitting stories, tips and to the forum are all similar now. http://www.biggamehunt.net/help.html
We were back at again today, but I brought along my little navigator buddy because we weren't gonna be in any designated wilderness. Saw 7 more goats, including one lone billy up on the Continental Divide. Ex girlfriend took the photos and is apparently a lot better with the camera than I am.
There's no doubt that a quality photo from a hunt or a special harvest we have made adds immensely to the memories of that hunt that we take from that day forward. Having a picture framed sitting on our desk at work, mantel at home or stuck on a dresser in our bedroom can take us back to that special time and place in an instant and that's something very special. Some hunters enjoy a mount hanging on a wall, and all the memories it keeps inside it's furry or feathered exterior. Some don't...
