Hold on to your hats my pedigree chums.....you can now post pictures almost directly to the forum!!! :wave:

Just underneath the reply box on the left you'll now see the add image option

Clicking here will take you to the postimages.org website which will walk you through a couple of very simple steps to getting your pic uploaded then you can copy paste it into your post wherever you like :thumbup:

Creating a postimages account allows you to delete images create gallery's and stuff like that

There's some issues users should know about. Postimages.org claims they will keep the pictures online forever, which is a good thing (forum posts don't lose images) and bad thing (anybody having the link can access the image, no forum login required).

Also I think the pictures uploaded by this process are "anonymously uploaded" so deleting them is quite impossible if you loose browser history (and haven't bookmarked the upload page for each picture separately).

So take care to e.g. not show serial numbers or some personal information in the pictures.

Yes care should be taken with any hosting site or public forum post regarding personal info and such, good advice

If you sign up to postimages you delete pictures easily :thumbup:
In fact I should add that to my first post
