Your pics need to be hosted on server so unless you can do it from home then they need to be uploaded to a website.

The simplest way I've found is ....

1. Save your pics to your PC
2. Open a (free) Photobucket account, log in and create an album.
3. Choose "Upload Files"
4. Browse to the location on your PC and then upload them.
5. Once they finished uploading you'll be taken to your album.
6. To add any of your pics to a thread just right click on the "IMG Code" under the thumbnail image, select copy.
7. Go to your BCUK post and click paste, job done.

Choose a sensible size to upload to a forum ("more options" under the "Upload" button), I use 1024 x 768 which seems to suit most machines including laptops. Once you pick this setting it stays like that until you change it. You can only reduce the size of your pics in Photobucket, you can't increase them any larger than that which they were uploaded at.

It's pretty easy when you get the jist of it, and it only takes a few clicks to upload any new pics.
