How to post a picture, image, or photo
The photo gallery is a free online album that you can share with your friends and family. We'd love to see your vacation photos.
Go to the gallery - http://www.sowal.com/bb/gallery, click on the "upload" link at the top, and upload photos one at a time. Your first uploaded photo will create an album under your username.
You'll see a box with code in it which you can copy and paste into any thread to post that pic.
To attach an image to a post, scroll down below the edit message box, and click manage attachments. You can then select photos from your computer to upload as attachments. They will appear below your message after you post it. Viewers will be able to click the thumbnail to see a larger version.
To add an image from your computer in the body of your message (as an attachment), click on the paperclip icon above the edit message box, upload the attachment, then close the attachment window, click on the paper clip icon again and select your image, it will insert into your message where your cursor is. Make sure that the image you uploaded isn't too big - about 600-800 pixels wide or less.
You can hotlink an image after uploading it to the SoWal gallery, your profile album, or one of the many other free photo hosting sites on the net like:
http://imageshack.us or http://photobucket.com
Hotlinking is easy. When you are creating a new message in the edit message box, one of the icons along the top is the "insert image" button - - click it and a box comes up where you enter the URL of your image, ie - http://websitename.com/imagename.jpg
Just make sure the image is not too wide - say 600-800 pixels or less.
