Hola Phillip, Any chance of getting a photo gallery here? Even if only for very low res pics it would be good for technical stuff

Thanks
Frank

On other forums it is usual practice for photos to be hosted either by a users own web site or they are used from a photo-hosting site such as photobucket. The user then adds links to the photo from the forum.

Not quite so, many let you upload photos of up to 200k from your computer directly to the forum website.

I've had a look in Admin configuration, and there does not appear to be a way for this site to host photos.

Others who have had a photo on the site, have, as Richard said, used another site like Photobucket to host it.

On the http://westerly-owners.co.uk/ site, there are two places for photos - tech pics and the photo gallery.

This topic http://westerly-owners.co.uk/woabb/viewtopic.php?t=491 shows some photos and explains how and where they can be posted to show on this site.
regards,
Philip.

I'll just add a few extra comments about the tutor that the link in Philips post will direct you to.

If you have a photo editing program that will do the resizing use it. You may have got something with a scanner or a camera.

If you are only going to post a small number of pictures then use the resizing option when uploading to Photobucket (It's too slow if you have many to do!)

Microsoft Office Picture Manager has a resizing facility but I have not experimented with it yet.

If you have a lot of photos to post look into using the facility on photobucket for posting them as clickable thumbnails.
