Another Newbie!

Post by alb001 » Tue 07 Jun, 2016 08:35

Hi there. I have had my roadster for a couple of months and I am enjoying it so far. I would like to post a picture on my profile but I am having trouble. Image is too large but not sure how to reduce the pixel size. Can anybody help? Andy

Hi welcome to our gang, lots of good information and help here. The preferred method of displaying photos is to reduce the size you want and then upload them to Photobucket or similar and then copy and paste the link into your 'post'. I think you can reduce the size in Photobucket if you want?
The guys here will want to see photos of your motor....it's the law :wink:

Thanks for your help, but I cannot seem to get it to work that successful. I do find it a bit confusing. Not much of a techie when this is concerned!
How do you get your photos under your signature? plus within the profile the photo link is not that clear what I should put in!
Does not seem easy to me!

Many thanks

Hi and welcome to the forum, Andy.

You'll need to master putting pictures in a post first, but the principle is the same, you put IMG tags into your the signature in just the same way.

Have a go in the Test Track if you want to practice. You can keep editing your post until you get it right. If you are struggling let us know what you are using (Photobucket, Flickr etc.) and someone will help you.

These are a bit pointless, but they allow you to display some larger pictures when someone clicks to view your profile (try mine by clicking on my name to the right). You need to enter the full URL to the image without any tags.
