How to post an image:

1. The first step is to find a host if you do not have one. http://www.photobucket.com is a good one, and easy to use.

2. Once your image is uploaded to your host, it's time to post it here! To do so, the first step is to make sure the ezCodes options is selected (see Diagram 1)

Diagram 1:


3. The next step is to click on the image button on the left of the screen (see Diagram 2.)

Diagram 2:


4. This brings up the location box. (See Diagram 3)

Diagram 3:


With the dialog box open, type or paste in the image address (the full address such as http://www.the_host.com/my_album/my_image.jpg), then click OK.

The post now has some code in it. Once you click the Add Post button, your image will appear!
