Cheers Spencer, and well spotted. I was thinking of doing a WIP thread on that one but I take forever to grind through these projects.

Don't waste your time on Fotki. I got it on a 30 day trial and it blows. No editing tools whatsoever. Drag and drop won't work. The only way I'm able to download photos with my device is one at a time. I wouldn't use it if it were free.

Cheers, fotki is not working out either. I have a 30 day free trial right now, but I can't get the links to paste into my reply. I tried imageshack first (above) but I can't seem to find the link that works for posting photos. Flickr is a yahoo site and I refuse to use anything related to yahoo. Some folks recommend imgur, so I might give that a go.

I can post photos from Fotki. But, it's a pain to me. I have to click the photo, click share, click more sharing options and finally click Code for forums.

And, you still end up with the annoying ''hosted on fotki'' under the photo.

I find that the closer you get to plain vanilla old-skool HTML code the more likely the image post will work on the SA board. Since there's no way to preview before you post here on SA getting the code right the first time is critical. By plain vanilla I mean the following:

[img ]image file's url[ /img]

for example:[img ]http//website.com/folder_name/image.jpg[ /img]. Important - the space before the"]" in the "[img ]" text and before the "/" character in the "[img ]" text should be omitted; they are there so that you can see the html code text in this message.

When I got screwed over by Photobucket I tried various services. My criteria included being able to generate image code for multiple files at once, that the image file name remained the same as the one I originally gave it, and that I could generate any of the commonly used image code strings. I also wanted to use a free service if it met the other criteria. I finally settled on imgbb.com, which is free. That's what I use to post here.

The other way to post an image succesfully here on SA is to copy the basic image url, i.e. "http//website.com/folder_name/image.jpg" into the "source" input box when you select the littlle "Insert/edit image"icon in the Post Body menu (the one with the mountains and the sun). If you do it that way you'll see the image right away. Unfortunately you can only post one image at a time using this method.

Thanks, Roger! That's a life saver. I have to admit to being a bit lazy when it comes to exploring menus...

Many thanks for the help guys, and thanks for the detailed explanation Bernard. Imageshack was my first try, and when I had my 30 day free trial and had no problems so I paid for a year, and now for the life of me I can't seem to make it post a photo. That prompted me to abandon imageshack and try fotki which was also unsuccessful, but for different reasons. Thanks to plowboy's tip above I'll give it another go, but it will not likely be my 'go to' hosting site. I'll have a look at the site you use also, Bernard.

I used to post photos quite frequently in the early years of the forum, but got away from it. I have lately become interested in doing some of my projects in WIP threads, but if it is too difficult I won't bother. With the photobucket fiasco I now understand why people say it is so much of a pain to post on this forum.

Cheers Nigel. The race car is a Chaparral 2D. It's an ancient and very simple Monogram kit, but with a few tweaks it builds up into a nice shelf model. It probably originates as a slot car body.
