I thought it would be fun to see photos of each other's gear. Some folks might not know how to accomplish that, so I'll try and explain the process here.
First, I have to assume you have your photos on your computer (some file, typically a .jpg or .png, the list goes on and on.
Now, here on the EAF, do the following:
1. Go to the thread you want to post your pictures to and click the "Post Reply" button
2. Type your message, if you desire. When you want to insert a picture you can do it 2 different ways.
a. You can upload the photo to the EAF
b. You can "link" to the photo that is stored on some photo sharing service (Flickr, PhotoBucket, etc.)
Hopefully this quick tutorial will work for folks. If you have specific questions, feel free to PM/email me. Or ask a Moderator, who should be able to help.
To upload to the EAF:
1. Scroll down in the window where you have typed your reply. You'll find a section called "Additional Options".
2. Click on the "Manage Attachments"
3. Another window will pop-up on your desktop.
4. Click on "Choose File"
5. Navigate on your computer to the location of the file you want to upload. Do NOTE that there are size restrictions on the file you want to upload. You must make sure your file meets the requirements. I cannot tell you how to shrink or tweak your file. That all depends on your software, so I won't cover that here.
6. You'll see the file you selected next to "Choose File". Now you are ready to upload the file. Click on "Upload".
This will create a "Thumbnail" in the post you are making and allow folks to see your picture. When you click on "Submit Reply" to post your reply, it will all be good.
To link to a photo on the web or a file sharing services (e.g. Flickr, PhotoBucket, etc.), do the following:
1. When you are ready to insert your photo into the reply you are making, click on the "Insert Image" button in the command bar (it's yellow, looks like a mountain):
2. Type in the URL (web address) of the image you are linking to:
3. Click "OK". You'll see some odd text in your reply, that's just the link to the file outside of the EAF.
Now, enough of this nerdy computer stuff. Get out and
