other than using a website terdnthepoolggb i'm not sure, I've always used image shack to upload any pics to here,it's really straight forward to use,i mean dead easy,the only downside is it now costs 3.99 us dollars a month (it used to be free Many moons ago in the days before the rewind spam wars) for i think more or less unlimited uploads.
You can more or less upload any image as long as it's not copy right protected.

I just chose the pay for a month at a time option which for 2.66 UK pounds (3.99 dollars) is not terrible value for money but it would have been better still if it was free.

I used to use imageshack until they started charging so now I use tinypic. Once you upload the picture it will give you a link to post that will show your picture.

I'm giving this a bump.

There seems to be quite a few people still struggling to upload photos to the site.

Anyone with any useful tips would be much appreciated.

I use imageshack which is not ideal for everyone,there is a small surcharge involved.

There are other image hosting sites out there like jcwbobc mentioned such as tinypic which are still free of use for anyone who doesn't want to use there credit card online or who wants to give out as little personal information as possible.

Are there ways round using a image hosting site to upload pics to the rewind?

Yeah any useful info would be great,when I get chance I might do a little photo guided tour of how I use imageshack as I would imagine a lot these image hosting sites work on the same principle.

You need to use an image hosting site. It's not possible -- on this site -- to post directly from your computer.

1) Sign up to Imgur. There are alternatives, but I'm currently using that site, so that's where my example pics are from.

www.imgur.com


There are also iOS and Android apps:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.imgur.mobile&hl=en_GB
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imgur/id639881495?mt=8


2) Once you have an account, scroll over to your username, and left click on images.

 -

3) You'll see the following page:

 -

4) You have a number of choices now. You can press the button 'Computer' -- this will allow you to search for the file on your computer. Ex:

 -


Or, you can just do what I do, which is to drag the image file directly onto the webpage. Ex:

 -


The file will be uploaded to the site. You'll now see the following page(with your own image):

 -

Left click on the image. You'll see the following:

 -


The relevant code is identified as 1 or 2. Left click on the pieces of paper to the right of the numbers. This will copy the code into your clipboard. Press CTRL+V to copy this back into the fast-rewind messagebox

1) This code will simply display the image. Ex:

 -


2) This code will allow you to create a clickable image. You click the image and it goes to the URL you provided. Ex:

 -


Ok, so that's the very basics. Hopefully this is helpful.

BTW, it's almost 3 in the morning, so if I've made any silly mistakes...forgive me..lol

Also, I should be working....

I made a few assumptions in the above post.

1) You're posting images that you've taken, and are only found on your computer or camera.

2) You don't have a website.

If the picture you want to post already exists on the web, whether it's on you own website, or a random one -- you can directly link to it.

-- Unless the website has .htaccess configured. http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/.htaccess --

Bear in mind, linking to an image on a random website(Hotlinking), is considered a big no-no.

Find the full location of the image:

http://www.inspirefirst.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Free-Stock-Images-for-Commercial-Use1.gif

insert the location within two image tags: [img] location [/img]
