An addition I've included to make posting you pics even easier ;)

You will now see, at the bottom left of every posting text box, a prompt to "Post a pic".
Just click on this and a window to "Postimage.org" will pop up.
This allows you to browse and select one or more images for placing in your post.
Don't alter the default image size (for message boards) unless you wish to reduce the size of the images.
Once you've selected the image(s) you want, click on "Upload" and the scripts needed will be written into your post.
Make sure you use the Family Friendly option, rather than the Adult one (your fellow forumites with thank you for your consideration!)
You can type your message before, between the individual image scripts, or after them.
Thumbnails will be inserted into your post. When readers click on the thumbnail they will be shown the larger image in Postimage.org.

Thanks to Chris (Nut17) for encouraging me to make this improvement.

I see that PostImage have been tinkering with their image hosting service and I find it more user friendly than ever now. The postage stamp sized images are now larger, making it easier to decide if you want to view the larger version or not. I have had no input with these improvements, but well done PostImage :TU

Cheers

You can also opt to post your photo without the surrounding advertising by making sure that the box titled "Allow sponsored links" is NOT ticked.
