Your Image should be seen in the middle of the page.below that are a series of rectangular boxes labeled:
Hotlinks for forums(1)
Hotlinks for forums(2
Hotlinks for websites.

click one time inside the rectangle that says:
Hotlinks for forums(1)
The screen should look like this:


Right click on the highlighted rectangle.
select copy.

Go to www.oldgas.com
and go start to make a post where you'd like to post your image.

Screen will look like this:


Right click where your typing your post and select "PASTE"

The text for the image will appear In the box where you are typeing.

Your image will then be visable on oldgas for the whole world to see.
as soon as you post your message.




I hope this helps everyone.If you have questions feel free to ask me.

That is an excellent tutorial!
Thanks so much for helping out, nochevys.

A couple things to add:

Notice the "Resize Image" check box in the Host It picture? You can check that before your upload to automatically resize your image down to an efficient size. 640x480 is the biggest that most images should be.

"Hotlink for Forums 1" will display a full size image. Or you may choose to display a thumbnail image, linked to a larger image. For that, highlight the "Thumbnail for forums 1" code box to copy/paste.

If you have a link to an image on the Web, you can get that image to appear in your message using the New Topic or Full Reply Screen. Put your cursor where you want the image to appear. Best practice is to hit your "Enter" keyboard key twice to put space between your text and the new image. Then follow the instructions in the image below:

Description: Inserting an image when you have a link to an image already on the Web.

Something should be said about the picture you want to post. It should be saved at 72-100 dpi, and you should learn to resize the image you want to post. You have all seen pictures that are so large you really can't tell what the image is, or too small again to see what it is. Try and find a program to resize the image so that it is no larger than 10" X 10".
Images from a digital camera normally need to be made smaller, and scanned images usually need to be made larger, depending on the original size.

Most all digital cameras will allow you to choose your pic. size prior to shooting. I have had a few and the last 2 have this setting. If you know you are going to e-mail the pic. or host it then set the camera to e-mail size in advance. This just saves you a little more time when you upload. There are also several programs available to help you re-size as well.

Posting several images in one message depends on several things: the traffic on the Oldgas.com server, the ImageShack server, your connection speed to the Internet and the memory size of the image files. The larger the image files and the slower the servers and your connection are, the greater the chance that multiple images will not be assembled into the message before a set time has elapsed.

A sure fire way to post multiple images is to post 3 or less in a message and then add more images as a reply message to that same topic. If you have any problems, post only one per reply.

The key to image efficiency on the Web are the pixel dimensions and file memory size. The pixel size should seldom be more than 640 x 480 and the file memory size should seldom be more than 100k to make it efficient for both the majority of users and those with slower systems.

The dpi setting for images only has an effect if you are working with an image editing program that sizes images by inches or centimeters. The end result is still pixels because that is how they are displayed on the Web.

Many image editing programs can adjust the quality of jpg photo images. A setting of 80% looks about the same as 100%, yet it is only a fraction of the file memory size. setting of 70% loses a little sharpness, but still looks acceptable for all but the most detailed photos.

I have dial-up, so I open a 2nd Browser window. 1 for image shack & the other with oldgas. I can Copy in image shack & Paste on oldgas. This way I don't have to wait for image shack to reload.
