    Hello all:

    I am brand new to this forum and I am a huge photography buff. I have been taking pictures for aprox. 14 years now and I just can't get enough.

    I just wanted to say a quick hi to all and that I look forward to making a few posts now and again.

    I would like to start off by asking a quick question. Can anyone tell me how to post pictures? At the bottom of my screen it says I am not allowed to post attachments. In other forums I have been on i.e a billiards forum it usually has a manage attachments option. I don't seem to have one and when I try to use the insert image button at the top it brings up a url box?

    If anyone can provide any help that would be great:D

    Take care all and have a great weekend.

    Paul.

    Hi Paul, welcome aboard.

    In order to be able to post pictures as attachments to your posts you need to be a subscriber.

    You still can post pictures, if your pictures are on a different website, something like:

    http://www.flickr.com/mypictures/blahblah.jpg (not an actual link, just for an example)

    Then you copy the above URL of your picture and enclose it between the regular Image tags in HTML, like this:

    Voila! :)

    Thank you for the welcome Mitica:

    Is it possible to become a subscriber and if so what is the best step to take.

    The reason why I am asking is I am currently not a member of Flickr or Photobucket or anyother photo sharing website so I am not sure how to download photos to the posts?

    Take care.


    Paul.

    Thank you very much for the welcome.

    I believe that becoming a subscriber is the way to go. I will certainly need help from everyone in taking good quality pictures and someday become proficient in using Digital Imaging Software including HDR.

    Thanks again.


    Paul.
