Welcome new and veteran Trekkies. There are some of you who may not have posted a photo or image on the boards here at Star Trek.com and would like to know how to do it. I know that I did when I saw everyone else posting pictures with their replies. Please note: You can't upload a picture from your pc, mac, or server here to this website at this time. The Star Trek Admins (not me) don't allow it at this time. That may change in the future.

Here are some steps to post some photos:

(1) You will need to create a free account on Photobucket or another free photo hosting website that provides a web address to link to your photos. My examples use Photobucket since I am not familiar with any other free photo hosting websites. If you have pics on Facebook or Myspace, you should be able to use the web address of the picture (Doing that should be similar to Step 3).

(2) Upload your pictures from your PC, Mac, or server and name them.

(3) Do not use the web address at the top of the web page.
Put your cursor (arrow) over the picture you want to post and look under that picture for the words Direct Link.
Click in the box next to the words Direct Link (single or double click). The text (words) should turn blue or some color when you click (or double click) inside the box. If the text do not change color, click inside of the box again until it does.

Click the button on the Right side of your mouse (Right click) for the short cut menu and choose copy

or

press and hold the ctrl button and press (do not hold) the C button. After that release both buttons.

Paste the text information into Notepad, Wordpad, MS Word, etc. This is the web address for your picture.
It should look something like this

Go back to your post.

(4) Hit the Image button and copy & paste the web address of your photo from Notepad, Wordpad, MS Word, etc. Modify the web address of the picture if it doesn't show up.

(5) Hit the Add Reply button when you are happy with your post.

Hope this helps :)
