Bitmaps onto threads - help pse

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Baghdad-Brit, Apr 22, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How do I get a bitmap picture onto a thread?

    Have been trying for ages but no luck.
  2. Firstly it has to be posted somewhere on the net, either on your own site or one of the many 'picture hosting' sites you can join. Then you use the img tags to link to that picture:-

    img link to your picture /img (not forgetting to have the img & /img in square brackets
  3. First off the image must be viewable from the web, if not you have to upload it somewhere, the use around the path to the image at at


    But with out the - in [-img]

    as in


    An easier way is to simply click the icon above where it says Tip that looks like a picture of 2 mountains and the sun ([​IMG])and put your URL or path there
  4. Thanks for the help chaps but I managed to open the pictures for editing then saved them as JPEGs.

    They are now on the Gallery.

    Ta-ta for now.
  5. You can also use the add an attachment feature when replying to or submitting a thread. Useful if the picture you want to display isnt on the web.

    Uploading files counts against a storage quota allocated by the admin, bear this in mind before going upload happy!!!
