Ok, I've received several PM's and emails asking how to post photos on the forums so this is my attempt to show how it's done.  I will let you know in advance that this tutorial will make it look complicated but that's only because it takes more time to read it than it does to actually do it.  So here goes:

The first thing you need to know is that there is no upload button.  You cannot simply browse for photos on your hard drive and add them to the forums.  Although that would be much easier, that would require the Take5 servers to host each and every photo to be uploaded, which would bog down or possibly crash their servers.

In order to post a photo to the forums the photo must be located somewhere online.  The simplest way is to upload your photo to a photo hosting website like Flickr or Photobucket.  There are others but these two are the most common.  I personally recommend Photobucket because the photo web links are easier to copy and paste than they are on Flickr.

Once you have an account you'll need to upload some photos.  I am only going to use Photobucket for this tutorial, maybe someone who uses Flickr can add on to this.

Uploading your photos to whichever site you choose to use should be pretty simple so I'm skipping past that part assuming everyone can figure that out.

The next thing you need to do is choose the photo you want to upload and hover your cursor over the photo.  When you do that you should see this:

I believe in Flickr if you open the photo and click on it again to show the page with the black background, you can click the View all sizes link in the top right corner.  Hover your mouse over the image, then right click and select View Image.  Copy and past the link in your address bar into the field that opens with the Little Tree icon.

You used to be able to just copy the link but they changed it awhile back and you can't do it like that anymore.  Maybe someone else knows an easier way but this is the only way I know how to do it on Flickr.
