RPD Images is an image gallery to which forum members may upload images, which can then be incorporated into their posts.

Images must first be uploaded to a server somewhere, in this case our image gallery, then a URL inserted into the post - easy when you know how. If the image is already on a server, simply right click on it as below.

To include an image in a post:

images should be a maximum of 400x400 pixels and 200kb in size. If required, they can be resized at www.cranno.com which is provided free by our Webhosts.

upload the image to the image gallery at www.RPDimages.net

Once uploaded, right click on the fullsize image - not the small (thumbnail) version.

in "Firefox" click Copy Image Location. In "Explorer" click Copy Shortcut. Or, in "properties" highlight and copy the URL - Ctrl+C to copy & then paste the resulting URL into the post - Ctrl+V to paste.

insert [img] and [/img] on either side of the URL to read

There are other ways of doing it, but the advice above should work.
