I believe some people have used outside photo hosting sites, like photobucket. Photos would need to be resized to fit properly within a post.
If you have access to your own web server, a person could store their own photos, and simply enter the HTML code for the photos they wish to post. Again, resizing would be necessary to make sure it fits within the post.
Just curious, I use that method on other sites, with photobucket and imbed them in the post using [ img] tags. However, that does not seem to work here. Is the Html link different than the [ img] tags, if you are familiar with what I am asking????
Now in photobucket you need to goto LINK OPTIONS and put a check in the box next to Direct Link For Layout Pages and click save.
Next Left click on the tag box under your photo you want to send to BGH Forum, then Right click the box again and click on COPY
Note: I use am using windows seven and have two windows open at the same time.
Now on your New Post click on the insert button which looks like a tree, and a new box will open and on the top line ware it want the ulr# Left click in that box, then Right click in the box again and select PASTE. You now put in a direct link.
Then click on save or insert, i forget which one it is, and your pic. will automatically start downloading.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
