When you want to post an Image to a Topic, please read the following guidelines:

Linking of Images
Use BBCode to include an external or already online image, as in the following:
Code:
[img]http://www.fractalforums.com/gallery/0/63_29_05_08_11_49_58_0.gif[/img]

Which produces the following result:




Use of Attachments
Attachments should be used Rarely and Wisely.  This is mainly because attachments get lost over time, threads grow older, and sometimes quite long.

Please do not post artistic images or something that you would like to last as attachments.  This is because FractalForums.com is a privately run site, and has only limited Web-Space Capabilities.  It is this forum's web space that will be consumed by them.

An Attached Image should have a direct relation to the post, and the post should not only read: "My Image Number XXX"
They are useful to underline a statement in the post, or a complex fact.

If you do not have an Account for a Hosting Site of larger images (i.e. DeviantArt, Flickr, Photobucket, etc... ) you can always use the Gallery here within the Forums to upload an image and make it available for others to see.



Posting of Images in Gallery
If you should have problems uploading an image to the gallery, the reason might be that it is somehow in a wrong format, open it with a common image viewer program and re-save it before uploading.

Thanks for clarifying Trifox! Confusing being that forum has the the choice of adding several attachments to a reply.  Going thru host or using BBCode is no problem! smiley

attachments are indeed useful sometimes, but if everyone uses them to post new images, it is better to place them elsewhere
if the attached image has a direct concern with the content better leave it away wink
