How do I upload photos?

Just joined and I am not used to this format. Usually there is an add attachment on the post controls.

You have to use the [IMG] tag.

You put the URL for the photo in between [IMG] and ["/IMG"] (except without the quotes). You can't directly upload from your computer. You'd have to use an image hosting site first.

You could try using Imgur before you sign up for anything. Try clicking "New Post" in the top left and see how you fare--last I checked, you don't strictly need an account to upload anything there.

Thanks....I forgot I had a dropbox account that let me post a link to photos in uploaded pics. Posted my Kaiju collection pics in another thread.

For some reason I can only post a link but adding img is not showing a picture here from dropbox.

Dropbox's image embedding functionality is limited by default, it turns out. A quick fix is to swap out ?dl=0 for ?raw=1 at the end of the URL. Compare the results:

Default URL:

?raw=1 URL
