You have to host them on the web somewhere.Like www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com) Thats the prefered way.

yeah, being a technology have-not, this one took me weeks, lots of white boxes with red crosses, plus tons of community support.

however, this method seems to work just fine.

go to http://imageshack.us/index.php

use the browse buttons as per, to locate your chosen screenshot

press "host it"

the next screen will take you to the URL for your particular piccie.

you can click on "copy url" and then paste it into the body of your message in this forum.

there are plenty of hosting services to choose from including frreeeee ones, but some of these (not the image shack one mentioned previously) put a watermark on your work.

If I'm not mistaken - and i think i probably am - the prefered format for this goodly forum is jpeg. downloads a heck of a lot quicker by all accounts.

there's more than one way to skin a cat of course. at the top of your forum reply page, there's something called Display Image - UBBCODE. i'll leave that to the experten.

Photoshopping? love it to bits!!! See the high resolution screen page at the top.

Finally, have a look around for Irfanview - i believe it's represented in the sturmovik essentials page, up top as well.

Hope it's been of some help. happy print screen Sys Rq-ing and we all look forward to seeing some of your works

As the Toad says, www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com) is almost comically simple to use. I use it to host images and it's very, very easy.
