    ImageShack Uploader installed

    A new feature has been installed on SA for everyone to use, check it out.

    All of us enjoy posting up pictures into our threads periodically so in an effort to make things as convenient as possible we've installed a tool that you'll see whenever you reply to a thread or start a new thread.



    You simply scroll down to the bottom of the page when you make a new post and you'll see the feature. Simply hit the "browse" button and find the image on your computer that you want to upload, then click on "host it" and a new window or browser tab will open up and the file will be autotmatically uploaded to www.imageshack.us and provide you with links to put the image right into your thread. You can then use IMG button (see screenshot below) shown in every post box when you make a post, to insert the "direct link to image" url that imageshack gives you, or you can use the "hotlink" for forums url they give you as well if you like.



    Ive always been a big fan of imageshack, and have been using them for years. They are as reliable as it gets and very easy to use. Plus this also helps save space on the website itself by using a free hosting service like ImageShack to host your files.
    If anyone has any questions on how to use it, don't hesitate to ask. Enjoy

    There are various options you can use and implement, including your own forum software, but we choose imageshack because it's an external free hosting site, they're reliable, and it doesn't each up bandwidth or board space.

    I use photobucket as well, but for ease and convenience of just posting up a random pic for a thread; ya can't beat imageshack. No need to log in or even create an account if you don't want to. No limits on bandwidth either

    You can't resize through this option we just installed, but you can if you go to www.imageshack.us . You can hotlink any image into pager, pm's or posts here on the site using Imageshack or any other hosting service.

    Right now the mod only allows you to upload 1 pic at a time. If you go to the site itself and sign up for an account you can use the imageshack toolbar or get an account for free and upload mult images at a time.

    Mainly this mod is just to help out when someone maybe wants to upload a random picture from the computer that's an average size for forums, like 600x400 or so. Just a nice feature to have around since I know I upload alot of stuff and especially during the season, alot of pictures that I download to my comp.
