Why'd I picture you with dark brown hair?

Maybe because of your avatar.


And yeah, you are a goodlooking guy!

When I was younger my hair was mixed between dark brown and ginger. My beard was always ginger, but now I'm an old guy.
Ta, for the compliment. I've been trying to learn how to post a bloody picture for years, finally figured it out yesterday. I'm better in the kitchen than I am with a bloody computer.

I was sucessful once in posting a photo, but I can't remember how in bloody hell I did it! Blimey, does this forum make it hard to post photos! I have other photo's I'd like to post, but I really don't know how to do it. Can anyone give me very simple instructions? I am a total novice at computer things, so if you can help me, please give me the idiot instructions. Photobucket is very difficult to understand (that's what I used before, but I can't make it work again).

First of all, disregard the options CIH provides. I don't think they've ever worked.

Instead, go to postimage.com. You'll have a choice of selecting either your own pics from your computer, or pics from the internet ("upload by url"). For the latter, you copy/paste the url into the box and hit upload. A blue line appears if successful and then you're taken to another page where you're given choices about what the pic is being used for. You want "hotlink for forums". You select that, come back to CIH and paste it into your reply box.

If you're uploading from your own pictures, it's an even easier process as it'll bring you right to your photo library. I don't remember the particulars, but as I recall, it's pretty easy.

All this sounds complicated until you do it once or twice.

It does get more complicated if you try to post a pic from facebook for some reason. I don't have Facebook, so I don't.

Also, some pics from the net you just can't upload. In those cases, a red line appears and says "invalid" something or other.

Jimmy, go to PostImage. It's free and easy. Click on 'Download Image'. It will open the files on your phone or computer, click on the image/photo.  Scroll down to 'Hotlinks for Forums.'  Copy and paste and you are there mate.  Thumbs Up

Hey Jiimaay, don't worry, that's an inside joke.

The best (easiest) picture hosting site to use is Postimage....


Just click on "Choose Image", then choose which picture you want to upload from your computer, then click on OK.

Your image will upload.

Then click on "Hotlink for forums" (big red arrow)


Next, come back to CIH and paste it into your post (ctrl V) and Bob's your uncle.

BTW.... Thor and aka ron use Postimage because I recommended it to them.

Several times before they finally believed me about it being the easiest and best image hosting site to use.

Just thought I'd toot my own horn for a minute. Approve

Wink

How do you get the IMG tags around the URL?

Nevermind. 

I see the "Hotlink for forums" option does that for you.

Meh.

Maybe saves three seconds.

Well, I'm using my phone, but it's similar on a desktop. I tap on the icon at the right end of the hotlink for forums bar, and the word "copied" appears.

Then i go to my CIH reply box, tap it and the word "paste" appears. Then I tap that, and voila!, the code is in. The pic shows up when I post reply or preview.

Yeah, I did that and edited my above post.

It saves a few seconds.

It saves only a few seconds, but really, how many seconds do we have left in life?

Every second counts at this point.

Yeah, but save them for WHAT??????

What is either of us doing that is so awesome we need to save as many seconds as we can just to devote them to it???

Besides, I think PaWolf left us a bunch of unused seconds to waste. Wink

Bloody Nora! It worked! Thanks to everyone!! That photo was taken a couple days ago. My cap is from my service years for the RAF ( I was a lieutenant). I like wearing it in very cold weather (it's wool, keeps my head warm).

There's nothing awful about the "kids" (they're all adults), but it's not me they hate.

They hate YOU for taking the Blackillac.

They wanted it for themselves.

I'm giving them your address.

Expect an unannounced "visit" some day soon.

They had a transponder installed in a secret location up inside the frame where nobody can find it.

If they get within one mile of your house, they can pick up the signal and track it straight to you.

It's some kind of military thing "Afgy Wolf" got from the Army.

He's also got an automatic assault rifle.

He's bringing it with him.

And he's pissed off.
