METHOD #2:
USING "IMG" TABS TO LINK THE PICTURE'S ADDRESS FROM A HOSTING SITE TO YOUR POST


If you use a photo-hosting site, typically, you won't have to resize the pics, like the first method I posted. The hosting site may reduce them automatically (at least the one I use does).
You'll have to load your photos onto the hosting site according to their directions. Directions vary, but you will be able to navigate through them pretty easily.

I use cardomain.com to host my photos. It's free and you can create a neat "garage" of your cars and what-not on there to keep track of it.

Here's a screen shot of my Cardomain page that shows all my rides in my "garage". If you use this site to host your pics, you can follow my directions.
If you use another hosting site, the process may be similar.

The idea is to get the photo address from the hosting site to the H-body.org site ..... IN BETWEEN the "Img" tabs on the forum.

Once again, the 6 major mouse clicks or keystrokes are in RED.
1. Select Picture
2. Copy picture's ADDRESS
3. Paste picture's ADDRESS to your post
4. Highlight picture's address in your post and then click "IMG" tab to place the address in between the image code.
5. Preview
6. Submit

1. SELECT YOUR PHOTO FROM THE HOST SITE:

GET THE PHOTO'S ADDRESS FROM THE HOSTING SITE (however the site allows you):

2. COPY THE ADDRESS (some sites have a "share" or "link" button):

3. PASTE THE PHOTO'S ADDRESS TO YOUR POST ON H-BODY.ORG (between the IMG tabs):

4. NOTE: THE PICTURE'S ADDRESS MUST BE PERFECTLY BETWEEN THE TWO "IMG" BRACKETS. THE ONE WITH THE FORWARD SLASH (/) IS THE END BRACKET....
THE ADDRESS MUST BE BETWEEN THE BRACKETS EXACTLY OR IT WILL NOT WORK.

UPDATE:
I like to highlight the picture's address, once pasted into the post, .... FIRST.... and then hit the "IMG" tab... it automatically puts the address between the image codes.

5. Hit "PREVIEW" to check if photo looks ok.


IF everything worked, and looks to your satisfaction, then hit
6. "Submit" and it's posted........

Now, I have my phone automatically sync my cam pictures with my google plus account. Then I download the thumbnail (smaller pic) from there, it's usually under 250 kb. Set your G+ account to upload pics at 2mb and it doesn't count against your account total either. If you're on an apple device, please disregard this. :lol:

PhotoShop Batch Processing
Great info above, but for the Do-It-Yourselfer, and having extensive background in PhotoShop by Adobe since version7, there is a batch processing function within the software which when set properly for one photo, you may then drag and drop the entire picture folder to have the batch processed. The only advantages I see would have to do with not connecting with another server to process your photos. I was about to upload all of my Vega pics when I discovered that I had shot them in RAW format which included all of the GPS info that I did not care to share. Now I must go into PhotoShop and try to re-save them without the GPS header on the .jpg then upload them to a project folder within my garage.
