Default PLEASE, post your photos on the Lugerforum

Sometimes new members post photos in their posts that are linked to one of the "free" photo storage sites.

It is requested that you post your photos that are inserted into your messages on the Lugerforum by using the "upload photo" link in the upper right hand corner of every forum web page.

There are two reasons to do this. Many members view this forum from where they work and my be behind a firewall that precludes visits to "public web storage locations"... so if you are looking to find answers from experts who happen to be at work, they may not be able to see what you are trying to show them.

The second reason why you should post your photos here on the lugerforum and not on a public photo storage site is that these websites are in a constant state of evolution and very frequently change the URL to the location where you photos are stored. Some even purge your photos if your account is not active for a specific period of time. You might get a notice that your photo storage has "moved", but it will do no good to possibly hundreds or thousands of folks who are reading something you posted on the forum.

There is nothing more discouraging that finding a thread that addresses exactly what you are trying to find out about Lugers ---only to find this type of symbol in the place where the photos that would have shown you what you wanted:



So - PLEASE upload your photos to be displayed HERE, and do not link photos that are stored outside of the Lugerforum.

If you need help sizing a photo for display in your posts, there is another sticky with help on that subject.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

John, I've been back and forth over this web site and can't find the written instructions on how to actually post the photo. Found things on resizing but I want just the directions on how to take a picture from my computer and attach it to a posting that I want to send in.
