Copy from Pastor Roger Below:
_________________________

1. To post pictures you must have a picture on a web site or you can get an account at an image hosting web site such as this free one

http://photobucket.com/register.php

2. Once you have an account you can download images from your computer file into that web site. After you have done this there will be a url assigned to that picture. A url will look like this:

http://www.jesuspaintings.com/pictures/the-crucifixion.jpg

3. On photobucket all you have to do is click on the url and it will automatically highlight it and copy it to your clipboard.

4. To post it on this web site go to a reply box on Christians Unite. Look for this button just above the empty message box:

and click on it.

5. When the img function comes up in the message box paste the url of your picture in the middle of it.

6. Make any additional comments you want in the message box and click on the post button.

The big thing that a lot of people don't understand is that you must have LIVE and HOT links on the Internet for the graphic or photo to be able to post it on forum or anywhere else. Just having it on your own computer won't work because there is no LIVE and HOT link from your computer with an address the Internet can use and understand.

Your computer uses a file structure to find individual files. The Internet uses addresses assigned to servers, and those servers are ready to display that address 24/7. An example is the Internet address assigned to the help information I gave you above, the one that starts with "http:". If the same information was already on your computer, it might be found in the file structure as something like this:

c:\help\graphics.txt

The Internet doesn't understand the file structure on your computer, and the individual files on your computer don't have Internet addresses UNLESS your computer is a Web Site, an FTP site, or a SERVER site of some sort specifically designed to deliver or display files. Each of those files will have an Internet address that the entire Internet understands and can access.

There are quite a few FREE services on the Internet that you can use to store your graphics. It assigns the Internet address, and you simply use the addresses it supplies anywhere you wish. Here's one example and the one I use:

http://photobucket.com/

All you have to do is sign up for an account, and the service is FREE. There are easy instructions for uploading the graphics you want to use. Each graphic is given a specific Internet address that is a LIVE AND HOT LINK 24/7. I just gave you one example. There are many FREE SERVERS that store and deliver graphics. Once you have working Internet addresses for your graphics, they can be posted here with the IMAGE command button. You will see this button while making a new post. It's over the posting window - second row down - second from the left. It becomes very easy once you've used it a couple of times. Each forum is different, but this one has very easy to use command buttons right over the posting window. You don't have to remember any hard commands, rather you just click an easy to use command button.

By the way, there's also an excellent HELP SYSTEM built into the forum. Just click the HELP BUTTON near the top of your screen and see detailed instructions for just about everything that can be done on the forum. However, the COMMAND BUTTONS while posting a new message do most of the work for you without the need to know a ton of details.

I hope this helps.

Love In Christ,
Tom
