TUTORIAL - How to post a picture : hosting, cropping, resizing, etc.
You need to host a picture that is locally stored on your computer to an online site.
I'm usually using imgur.com that is free (no registration) and reliable.

1- The first step is to host your image stored locally by clicking on "upload images".

2- Click on "browse your computer" that will open a dialog box to navigate through the computer's folders to select the file (your image).

3- Once selected, the window will be refreshed like this. Click on "Start upload".

4- When your image is uploaded, you can crop it to better focus on the subject of the picture. You are going to edit your image. Click on "Edit image".

5- Select the "Crop/Resize" tool. The pointer of your mouse will change to a cross shape. Click on the mouse button and hold it to open a rectangle that will be the new frame of your image.

6- You can adjust each edge of the rectangle for a better fitting. Grab (click and hold) one of a small square.

7- Once reframed as you like, apply the new frame/selection.

8- The size is still a bit too large. It's better when the larger dimension (width or height) is not more 800 pixels. Here I'm changing the larger one (height) to 800 pixels. Mouse -> click in the "height" box -> enter "800" with numeric keypad -> Enter key (or click "Apply").


9- Now you need to "Save" the cropped and resized image. It will save it on IMGUR, not on your computer.

10- Click in the "BBCode (message boards & forums)" frame box to highlight its content.

11- Mouse right click to copy the link, paste it in the window of your message in the Fasttech forum. Done.

One of the best things about imgur is that it strips out metadata such as geo location. There are other sites which do not do that so be careful.
When I was younger I used to go skinny dipping. Now, all I can do is chunky dunking.
