[quote="Misfit"]Hello, The way I do it is to host pictures on Photobucket.com. It is a free hosting site. First, save a picture to your computer (you probably already have done that) Second, go to photobucket and register. Third, when you log on to photobucket, you will find a place that says "upload Image" Fourth, just below and to the right, click "Choose file". Fifth, browse your files and find your picture and open the file. Sixth, your picture opens in Photobucket and shows "tags and descriptions". Above the picture, click "skip this step now". Sixth, your picture is now in photobucket ready to post on any web site you wish. Seven, if you are posting on a g503 forum, log on to Photobucket, find your picture and click "IMG code" which is under the picture. this will automatically copy your picture. Eight, now, go to g503.com, write your post then press "control V" (Ctrl V) on your keyboard. This will automatically place your image in your post.
It's a lot easier than it sounds at first, but try it, it works great.

I tried to quote the SEVENTH portion of this post unsuccessfully so the whole post from 'Missfit' is quoted. I did create a Photobucket account and have my pictures posted there, however; the seventh portion suggest there is an IMG code beneath the pictures, etc. My pictures at Photobucket do not have an IMG beneath them???? Please post or message. thanks!

Photobucket just shut down all third party hosting and is now charging for it, A LOT!!!! They also disabled ALL of your current pictures. I lost thousands of pics that I have posted over the last ten years. I guess they figure that people want this stuff back so they will pay the ransom! That my friends is extortion at it's best!

I never sit down at a pc. Everything i do is from my phone. I did use the host site once but have no idea how now. There are many photo compressor/resizer apps on google play but im not having any luck. Even when i compressed rhe pic to "0" its still to large! Anyone know of a compressor that will work? And why is this the only site where we have to fight this issue???

Put em all in one folder on PB then download em to your computer. Plus read the other stuff on here about PB there is som chrome thing that fixes the ones already posted somehow.

Any reason why the Attachments link on each post doesn't work, after downsizing pics below 250 K keep getting errors???? This just started a month or two when site was updated.

Not a clue Adam, That is why I use a hosting site and just copy and paste from there. Takes me 10 seconds to post a picture.

Sounds like you are going through Post image but using the wrong link to bring the pictures over? I use the link that says "Hotlink for forums" Click on that and it will say "copied" and then just go to the forum and click paste. Done.
