SAHOTSPOTS would like to encourage people to share their experiences with one another and part of that is by showing others photo's. Be it as simple as that photo of a Cape Sparrow you took in the garden this morning!

Here is an explanation of how to go about posting your photo's:

First you need to sign up at one of the many free photo hosting sites. One that I use is called Photobucket. The web address is http://www.photobucket.com

Go to their site and register, then follow their instructions on how to upload.

Once you have the photo's uploaded to their site you can add a link from this site to your photo. Once you submit your post, the BBCode will take care of the link (make sure that the "Disable BBCode in this post" is unchecked).

To add a link simply use the BBCode Img button when posting. When you click it you will see [img]appear%20in%20the%20message%20body.%20Now%20paste%20the%20link%20from%20photobucket,%20then%20click%20the%20"Close%20Tags"%20option%20and%20you%20will%20see to complete the BBCode.

For a visual representation of the above see below:

First register at the site:



Now you are ready to upload a photo: either select to upload one photo...



or multiple photo's:



each time using the file selector to choose a photo from your hard drive:

[img:zkohdh47] i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/audi5e/fileselect.jpg [/img:zkohdh47]

Now find the photo you would like to include in your post. Highlight the text marked URL and press cntrl-c to copy it:



Go back to SAHOTSPOTS and use cntrl-v to paste the link after the [img] tag, then close the BBCode to complete: [img]http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d55/audi5e/photobucket5.jpg

If you have any problems, you are welcome to contact one of the moderators or site admins!
