1:Decide what size you would like your picture on your own computer
(I suggest 600x800 for starters as most PC screens will show this fine).
To do this easily use the great free Image manipulator,

Open you picture with it and then press Ctrl+R on your keyboard.This will bring up the resize options.You can change the size to suit your needs then,"Save-As" with a new name that relates to the picture so you remember it.

2:Now you need to upload it to the Web.I use the free PhotoBucket.

Once you have uploaded it and if you have used Photobucket you will see your picture and when you hover over it at the bottom right of the small Thumbnail of your picture there are code options.If you move your cursor down slowly to the last option it's an,"Image code".If you click on that it will turn blue.Now right click and choose copy(Or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C).This copies the address and the HTML code into your Window's clip board.You can't see the clipboard but it means it's being held in memory for you so you can use it.

Now you can paste this code into your forum post so it's best to have at least two windows or two Tabs(Firefox) open to make it easy.One with your post and one with Photobucket.

This address ... Master.jpg won't display as an image because it doesn't have the correct HTML image tags either side of it.

This is the code that would display the BrakeMaster.jpg but you won't see the code when it's displayed but I've deliberately corrupted the line with the 3 Asterisks so it won't hide the HTML image tags either side of the address

To help in other forums copy and past these

into your post and then copy your URL/Web Address of the picturebetween them.

It all sounds a lot harder than it is and once you have done it a couple of times it's dead easy and fast :)
