Newbie From Alabama
Posted by Challenger350Pilot on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 7:40 PM

Greetings everyone, from Alabama!

I am a newbie to FSM forums and discussions. J am primarily a civil airliner model builder, looking to share and be a part of the community here. This looks like a wonderful place to talk, observe, constructively critque, and just enjoy. I would like to submit some photos of a recent build I have finished, but do not know how to upload photos. Can someone direct me to a step by step procedure for uploading photos?

Welcome to the Forums!

To post photos, you need a photo hosting site like this one:

You upload photos to the site; then copy the "direct link."  In you post here, you click on the "insert/edit image" button and paste the "direct link" info.  Hit the "OK" button and you should be good to go.

It worked!

Welcome to the forums! Welcome Sign Beer

I use Imgur for hosting my photos.

Here is what I do to add pictures to my posts with Imgur:


1. I login to Imgur and find the picture I want to post:

2. On the Direct Link Option click "Copy".

3. Now go to FSM forum and find the Thread you want to add the picture too.

4. Find the post and click the "Reply" button. (If you do not see a reply button, you may need to refresh the browser screen. Or go to another post that does have a "Reply" Button.) You should see the next picture:

5. The add picture icon is circled in Red. Click on it, the next pic will show you what needs to be added:

6. Source circled in Red is where you will paste the copied information from Imgur, or any hosting site. Then I set dimensions to 500 X 350 and I leave Constrain proportion checked. These are arbitrary numbers, they can be set to whatever your prference may be. I do not add an Image Description, however you can if you like. 

7. Click "OK" to add the picture. At this time you still have not posted the post, and you can go back and make adjustments. When done, click on "Submit your reply" at the bottom of the page.

8. Hope this helps.

 Welcome to the forums . I like , but don't build airliners in plastic . I build them in paper ! It works out to one a year . I have twelve planes to build yet . Different liveries , because after you clearcoat the model You can paint any Livery you want . Plus they don't weigh as much so you can hang them on the wall with Command Hooks !T.B.

Thank you everyone for your kind words of welcome! Looking very forward to spending time here reading, watching, studying, and enjoying.

I used checkmateking's recommendation and am using postimage...and it worked perfectly! I've posted my latest build in Civil Aircraft and Airliners. Enjoy!
