Please take a few minutes to read our "Rules & Regulations", including those for "Image Posting". When you finish, or if you've already read them, click here to go directly to the forum index.
Posting photos is acceptable, and helpful, if it is related to helping someone build or upgrade their motor. However, many users are on dial up so we need to be mindful of using large photos, as this makes the pages load slow for them. Therefore we ask that you keep all images within the limitations listed below. This also helps to reduce the required disc space and transfer rates, allowing us to maintain the limitations set by our host. Not only does this help keep cost down, it allows us to provide this site free of charge, advertisements, and/or pop-ups. Thank you for your cooperation.
Since we are a family orientated website, no nudity, pornography, or suggestive poses of girls with cars is permitted.
TOPIC IMAGES: 600x450 pixels, with a maximum size of 100K. Please keep the number of pictures posted to no more than 6 photos per topic unless you have advance permission from the forum administrator.
SIGNATURES: 400x150 pixels, with a maximum size of 60K. No video or animations.
* Text will not exceed a font size of two (2).
* With Signature Image - two (2) lines of text are allowed.
* Without Signature Image - four (4) lines of text are allowed.
AVATARS: 160x80 pixels, with a maximum size of 15K. No video or animations.
We prefer our members use Image Shack or Photo Bucket for image posting. Both of these are free services and provide thumbnail links for posting within a forum topic. You may also link to larger images or video's using HTML or BB code.
Images, signatures, and/or avatars over the maximum size restrictions may be deleted without warning. A private message is normally sent to the forum member, requesting that they reduce the image(s) to an acceptable size, prior to re-posting. If the image(s) have not been reduced as requested, they will be deleted and the member may be suspended or ban from the forum.
You may link to video’s providing they are within the acceptable size limitations and non-offensive in nature. However, they are not permitted for avatars or signatures. Again, you may link to larger images or video's using HTML or BB code.
COMMENT: This policy is in effect to keep the site loading fast for dial up users, to keep cost down, and to prevent offensive images. All it takes in one girly picture to turn someone off and have them leave the site. If you think you have a questionable photo to share, ask a moderator or the forum admin for approval.
First, you have to host the pics someplace. That means they have to be on a server that can be accessed thru the web, such as Photobucket, Imageshack, or a personal website. Not all hosts allow linking, so you need to make sure you select one that does.
Once hosted, each picture will have it's own individual address, which is called the URL, and looks something like this: (see example).
There are several ways to post a photo. If you are posting images which are hosted on a personal website, just page down. If posting images which are hosted on Imageshack, page down to "Posting Images using Imageshack" or click here. Since I don't use Photobucket, I won't cover it, however it should be pretty similar to Imageshack.
Please keep your images to a maximum of 600 x 450 pixels.
Remember that some folks are on dial-up, therefore please limit your post to six images. While you might think it's OK, inserting dozens of pictures may crash someone else's computer, or it can take forever to load the topic. Please be kind, by keeping others in mind.
Posting an Image Hosted on a Personal Website
You can just type in the address, also called a URL (like we did in the example above) and leave it like that. Then when we click on the link, we'll see the image. Or if you want to actually display the image in your post, you'll need to add "image tags". These are the tags used before [img] and after [/img] the image address (URL). There are two ways to add them. First you can just type them in, at the beginning and end, or you can highlight the URL and click the Image Button at the top of the posting screen. This will automatically add the tags to each end of the URL. Remember not to leave any spaces between the URL and the image tags, or to put any periods or commas at the end of the URL addy. When your finished, you'll end up with this.
Posting an Image Hosted on ImageShack
First,you need to log on to Imageshack at
Next you need to find the picture you want to post. Use the button marked "BROWSE", find the file (pic) on your computer, and hit enter. Once selected, you'll automatically go back to the first screen on Imageshack.
Next, click on the button marked "START UPLOAD" After the file has been uploaded, you will go to a new screen on Imageshack.
Here you will see three boxes. To the right of the boxes you will see "thumbnail for website's", "thumbnail for forums 1", and "thumbnails for forums 2".
Select "THUMBNAILS FOR FORUMS 1" . Make sure the entire addy is highlighted, then copy it.
Now go to the posting screen in the forum, and "PASTE" the URL you just copied, where you want the image posted.
Finally, hit the "SUBMIT" button when you are finished with your post. Your post will then have a thumbnail which links to the image on Imageshack, which will look like this:
