Posting Pictures on our site is a two step process. First you go to your HH profile by clicking on
your picture at any of your posts. Then you scroll down to "My Files" on the right hand side,
and within that box, click on "View All Files". This opens "Your" files
box. At the top of that box is a "Browse" button that you select so you can
navigate to your picture's location on your PC.
this point, let me say that I can't post anything that is 1MB or
Larger, so you have to edit the shot to a size below 1MB in size before
you proceed. use your own choice of software to get this done. (I use the photo editor in MS Office because I'm used to it)
you locate your picture and navigate to it and select it with the "Browse" feature,
you click on the "Add File" button right next to the "Browse" button and
the picture will load up into your HotHardware allocated files section.
Once the picture is in there, you can add it to any of your posts by this method.
the reply button on a thread, or start a new one. The window that you
already know and love will pop-up and you add the text to it as you
prefer. Then, within that box you will see an icon that looks a little
like a film strip with a tiny plus sign on the bottom right hand side.
(it's kinda green in color) When you hold your mouse curser over it
without clicking it, a box pops up that reads "Insert Media".
So you click on this icon and your files box opens up.
you click on "your files" icon it tells you that there are no files
there, so you HAVE to click on the little triangle to the left of that
and it opens a box underneath of it that you can click to actually see
your picture that you uploaded already.
So you select you picture from the right side first. Then you have to make sure that before you post it, you set the "Max Width" box to 597. (this makes the picture display at the perfect size in our forums)
Last, you select "Insert Media" and complete your post.
After you do it a few times it's easier.
the post is complete and in the forum, anyone seeing the pic can click
on it and it displays to a larger screen with size, and clicking it again brings it to full size.
Setting the "Max Width" box to 597 is extremely important to do. It keeps your picture from looking grossly huge in the thread.
(posting pictures that you didn't shoot, could cause problems, so check for copyright on pictures beforehand and respect them by not posting if they're copyrighted)
I hope that this helps you newer guys out.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Thanks for posting this, I have been encountering a number of issues when trying to share pictures. With this I shouldn't have any more problems :)
"I have the power!!"
Thanks for taking the time to explain this, bro. One minor thing, though. 597 pixels is the max width without having the image auto-resize and potentially lower the quality.

Marco C:597 pixels is the max width
Ok, I was advised years ago by someone else to use 600 and have been doing so ever since,....ha-ha!
Thank you thank you thank you!
Been a bear figuring this out. lol
You're welcome. It took me a while to get a handle on it too. Someone, and I can't remember who it was, helped me out as well.
I've been wondering about the max width for a long time! Thanks Neil!
