The easiest way is to embed BBCode to an external photo service like FlickR. You will need to reduce the resolution to less than 500 pixel wide.

For example, in FlickR, select an individual photo, then the "share" icon at the bottom left of the screen.

That will take you to the "Share photo to:" screen, where you select the BBCode option. Make sure to select the pull down showing the picture size and select any that are less than 500 x nnn (e.g. 480 x 640)

Select the whole line starting with the bracket-url command and paste into a reply on this forum. Code should look something like this and photo should display (example below).

Code: Select all

The "share" icon did not come up.

I was able to post a link to the photo though.

I would like to put a couple of pictures on my ad for the Gen3. Any other ideas?
