I wish that someone with a lot more technical savvy than I would provide information about how to post photos, along with some guidelines for what is appropriate sizewise. I've managed to post a few photos, but they might have been too big, as other people's photos are smaller. Also, I don't know whether it's preferable to post thumbnails that link to bigger photos. But it could be that I'm the only technical illiterate on this forum.
Hi jk, Michelle here. First you need to have the photos published online somewhere. There are online albums (like snapfish.com) where you can upload digital pics, or you can publish them to your website. In order to post photos here, you will need the URL - or web address for each pic. When you are writing your post, you will see an option called Add Tags: (below Subject: and Message Icon:) There are icons to the right of the Add Tags: On the bottom row, the 4th icon to the right looks like a little picture. If you hold the mouse over it, the screen tip will say"Insert Image". This is what appears in your message when you click on that icon. [/img]
Copy and Paste your photo URL in between the ][ .
I'm not sure how to resize the image ... may be someone else can help you with that. I just make sure the pic is the right size when I publish it to our website.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions, I can try to answer.
Hey jk, The images you've published here on the board are just right. There is nothing what you could have done better. As a maximum size I'd recommend 640x480. Depends also on your object. Sometimes you can read "Don't publish so many large images, think of the poor modem users - put small thumbnails or text links instead". But actually I find this very wrong (we have 2-3 computers sharing 1 (!) modem here). If there is a page with many images, I let it load and do something else in the meantime (working something else on the computer, visiting Neps, reading in a Nepbook, eating, taking a pee, ... the possibilities are endless ) If there are single links, I have to sit in front of the computer and click and wait, click and wait - I don't like it and I only do it, if I am really really interested. Then I right-click all of them and open all in 'new windows'. Still quite a bit of extra work. Facit: You did well
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
