This is the steps I use:
◦ I shrink and compress the original photograph to a file size of about 100K
◦ If you use a format other than .jpg, convert the file to .jpg
◦ Upload file to www.use.com
or any other image hosting site
◦ Select the button that generates code
◦ Select and copy the applicable code
◦ Paste into the forum message. Ensure the line of code is in this format [img]......[img]
◦Select preview and check how your photograph will be displayed and if not correct tweak the line of code from the image hosting site.
Hope this helps.
