Thanks to Kallie/Catcher's Mom , Lexi's Mom and everyone else who has helped a "newbie" get their pics up and for letting me know I hadnt made it a "sticky" yet


Here is how to post an avatar, the photo under your name:

1. Click on My Controls located at the top of all SM pages.

2. You will then see a page with a listing of choices on the left. Look at the Personal Profile section, the fourth category.

3. Cick on Edit Avatar Settings under the Personal Profile category.

4. Now you're on the page you'll need to add your photo. Go to the last selection: Upload a new image from your computer

5. Click on Browse and you will see your computer files. Find the photo you want from your computer and click on it and then click Update Avatar. You may need to hit "Refresh" to see the new avatar.

Here is how to post pictures in your gallery:

1. Click on My Controls located at the top of all SM pages.

2. You will then see a page with a listing of choices on the left. Click the first choice listed, Your Album.

3. Click on Create Album and follow the instructions.

4. Click on Upload Image and follow the instructions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

To have an image show up in your post:

2. Right click on the image and select Copy Image Location

3. In your post click the IMG button and paste the link you just copied.

4. Click OK and Add Reply.

Places to host your photos

The SM gallery
http://photobucket.com/
http://www.yourimagelink.com/
http://hostedimage.com/ (there is a free plan)
http://imagecave.com/
http://hostedimage.com/

How to Post a URL:

When posting a web site's address within your post you'll want to make it "clickable". Click on http:// at the top of the posting page on SM and when the pop-up box comes up, put your link there instead of directly in your post either by "pasting" or you can type it in. Another pop-up box will then come up, (it is pre-populated with "My Web Page"), you can simply paste again if your URL was copied and pasted from your address bar and the entire URL will show in your post or you can type in whatever you want and that is what will show up as your clickable link such as "Bla Bla Web Page".[

Tools to use for images...

Free Image Software : http://www.irfanview.com/ (i have used this one)
Free image resizer : http://bluefive.pair.com/pixresizer.htm (never used)
FREE ONLINE image resizer: http://www.resize2mail.com/ (just used it, great)

It's important to resize image to a more forum "friendly" size of a maximum 600x450 pixels if at all possible
