    How do you post a picture....for dummies(like me)

    I just took a picture of my EDC setup ....how do I get it to show up here. I'm on my iPhone4S and the picture is in my photos. Thanks!**

    ** Not sure where to post the question so I figured it's about my EDC so this is as good a place as any for a question

    - first one has to include some URL address which then posts the image as a thumbnail.
    - second one then you will upload it to the forum and make it appear below your text as a thumbnail.
    - third option is to use {IMG}http://some web url{/IMG}, here you have to replace parentheses with brackets and the image will appear in your post

    If one had a regular color print and took a shot with a web cam would that work? I'm in Old Grunts camp too. I don't even know how to post a link from YT to here like with my amphibious RV from yesterday.

    Download Tapatalk from the app store and it makes it really easy, and it's the best way IMO to check forum from any phone.

    I just reviewed your system settings and it looks like your system was affected by Y2K. NONAME762 has obviously been hacked and should change user name to oBuMMer(orP.

    remove the . from the below to post a link

    type [.i.m.g.]copy and paste the link to the picture out on the web here[./i.m.g.]

    So if you have a picture at the following:

    http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2...achine_gun.png

    and want to post it you would type:

    [.i.m.g.]http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110518015817/fallout/images/f/fd/.45_Auto_submachine_gun.png[./i.m.g.] REMOVE The "."

    it will appear as:


    If you have a picture from your PC you can click the third icon from the right at the top of the box you are typing in and it will guide you through the PC upload OR through retrieving an image from the web as I showed you above...

    Cool, Thanks, not sure I could replicate it but hey, It Can Be Done

    Sorry about the color correction, it was one of my early efforts. I was behind the lens.

    First email the image to yourself in, say, gmail. Then download it to your computer from gmail and upload to the site.

    That takes it from phone to web to DDC site.
