Default Posting Layouts and Previews in Forum

Thought I would post a quick tutorial on how to post your images in the forum threads ... there may be other ways, but this is how I do it!

1) Resize your image to 500 pixels or less with a resolution of 72.
2) Upload your image to a free photo hosting site such as photobucket.com
3) Copy the "direct link" code beneath the uploaded image on photobucket.
4) While creating your post for the forum, click on the yellow square icon with the mountain in it ... this will allow you insert the link you just copied.
5) Preview your post to see the image! You can then click on the image and hit the globe/link icon to link your image to any website.

Another way to insert images that are already uploaded to your blog or SAS (or any website for that matter) ~

1) Right click and drag over the image so it turns blue. This means you've selected your image.
2) Right click on the blue image to bring up a menu.
3) Select "Copy Image Location"
4) While creating your post for the forum, click on the yellow square icon with the mountain in it ... this will allow you insert the link you just copied.
5) Preview your post to see the image! You can then click on the image and hit the globe/link icon to link your image to any website.

Hope this helps!
