I have activated the "File Manager" direct image upload feature to the forums. Try out the new system on the "Testing Area" forum. You may still use ImageShack or Photobucket and the [img] tags to display pictures in all forums.

Images need to be sized to 640 x 480 or smaller and 150k in memory size or smaller. We recommend using the software that came with your digital camera to resize. A good practice is to reset the resolution on your camera temporarily to 640 x 480 to save time to upload.
Or use - Online free image resizing instructions:
http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=199328

Instructions:
* Click on "New Topic" or "New Reply"
* Then click on "File Manager"
* Click on "Browse" and select your image. Images should be 640 x 480 or less and 100k or less.
* Add text in caption box
* Click the "Add File" button
* Click the "Done Adding Files" button.
* Fill out the Subject and Post message box (no image code is needed) Preview button will not show image
* Click "Submit"

Pictures of the computer screen during the process can be found here:

Resize smart phone pics with an app for quick and easy upload with both Android and iPhones:

A "Resize" tip from member Bruzer75:

"What I did last night to resize the picture I wanted before I tried posting it. I resized by right clicking on the picture itself. One of the choices is "Send To" when you put the pointer on it you get more choices. Left click on "Email Recipient". A little "Attach Files" screen comes up with "Picture Size" I left click and one of the choices is "Smaller:640X480". Click on that and then "Attach". Now your picture is smaller and an attachment to email. Double left click on your "Attach" Picture in the email and that brings the picture full screen. Left click on "File" and "Make a copy". That copy should be saved under pictures. So with all that when you go to post a picture on oldgas and click on "Browse" your smaller picture should be one of the choices. (I hope there is a better way, that I do not know yet) Good luck.
Mike"

Try it!

Also if you just try to post an image without text, you need to at least add a letter or character like * in your post (not as a caption) for the image to come up.

This works for me,send the picture in question to YOUR email,when you receive it right click on the picture,click save and it in my case goes to "my pictures".It is now the correct size.Simple!

Easy to embed a YouTube video to display right in your forum post.

Upload the video to YouTube
Copy the URL link to your video, such as:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4JvXpyu-lU

Paste that link in the pop-up box for the media:Youtube option as shown below.
Submit your post and it should display right there.

New member here and have typically not had any problems posting pics to other sites before. logged on to main site, then went to the Shop Talk Forum area to post pics and got new log in. Then the log in would not work anymore and prompted me to enter a number in a picture but could not see anything in picture on computer or smartphone. Did however download three photos to an album though but could not post one to my profile. Very frustrating. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Update: Somehow I have succeeded in getting a photo posted and resized I guess. I think I may have a couple others in an album too. Great site and looking forward to learning and contributing with y'all. Thanks!!
