Hey Michael,

Would it be possible to add a button to embed image links similar to how you embed web links? The whole image upload process is nice if you don't have an image hosting site, but those of us with web galleries that want the full size images embedded in their posts have to do several work-arounds to get it to work.

If that's not possible, then maybe you could just post an FAQ that gives us the right HTML or BB code to use when embedding images. We would appreciate it!

Thanks!

The simplest method is to use the BB IMG tag. Copy the link to your photo from your gallery. Then paste it between an IMG tag. In the following example, you would replace the { and } with [ and ].

{IMG}http://www.yourphotodomain.com/yourgallery/example.jpg{/IMG}

And here it is in use:



You don't even have to resize the image, as the forum software seems to do it by itself. The above example is a large image, but displays OK on the forum. To see it in full resolution, right-click open in new tab/window.

I hope that helps,

Steve
