uhh… Tim, that post was from the last release of the FSM website. The old reserve had an icon that looks like a film strip; now there is a cellphone photo (and just kills my “you remember film?” joke). Also the icon is eleven, not twelve, thus

  1. Set up an account with a place like Photobucket. There’s other services but this is the one a lot of FSM folks use. I recommend that you have an account dedicated for your models, separate from your personal photos, but there’s no requirement for it.
  2. Upload your pictures to your account/album. The FSM site doesn’t provide any photo storage, so if you delete your image, your post will have a hole like this:
  3. (This works best if you open 2 windows: 1 in FSM and 1 in Photobucket, et al) Go to the Photobucket window and highlight and copy the “Direct Link” address. Go to the FSM widow containing your unfinished post. Go to the menu bar above your post, the icon that looks like a cellphone, the 2nd tier of the message control bar, the ELEVENTH icon (FYI, the TWELFTH icon is ‘Insert Video’). It says ‘Insert Media’… CLICK IT. Paste the Direct Link address into the appropriate space. Then hit insert.
  4. Wait for the FSM site to show the photo, etc. etc.

And thanks, Tim, for calling my instruction as “great”.

TomZ2, I blame your minions. They fouled up my computer and the wrong link went into the field. I'll not admit any error on my part.

Still, great help is great.

Thanks for correcting what the minions messed up. Now, I just hope we didn't confuse Tankerbuilder too much.

Tim

I use photobucket.  Load your photos in there.  Right click on the photo and get the web address for that photo.  Then using the picture icon in rich formatting paste it in there.  Hope that helps.
