To Upload photos directly from your computer follow these steps...

1. First click to start a new topic or reply to a post.

2. Click on this icon in the header above the text area.


3. A box will pop up and you can click on Browse to select a jpg or a gif (only jpg or gif)

4. When you open your selection the photo location will appear in the box.

5. Now click Upload and the code will appear in the box.

6. Copy and Close the code box Window. (You will not be able to upload another photo until you close this box)

7. Paste the code directly into your message.

That’s all there is to it! If you have an issue, let us know. In the meantime, you may also use our old photo loading procedure listed below. It sounds like a lot of steps, but once you’ve posted a couple of photos you can do it in no time! You can go here to practice! http://www.sidexsideworld.com/viewforum.php?f=467


To upload photos from Photobucket follow these procedures. You must first save them to photobucket, which is free. You will find that there are several others to choose from I just prefer photobucket, www.photobucket.com.

Step .1

Save your pictures on your computer.

Step .2

Go ahead and register with photobucket if you haven't already (remember it's free).

Step .3

After you are logged in to Photobucket Click UPLOAD NOW. It’s a green icon in the top blue strip.

Step .4

Now click on Select Photos and Videos with the green button.

Step .5

This will bring up your computer index. Locate the photo that you want to Upload to PRC and highlight it and click OPEN.

Step .6

You will now see your photo displayed in a small size. Click SAVE CONTINUE TO MY ALBUM. This is a blue button.

Step .7

Run your mouse over your photo and you will then see four boxes below it. Click on the one that says IMAGE CODE. It will say “COPIED”.

Step .8

Go to your message and right click and paste into your post where you want the phot to appear.

Step .9 Click Submit

You can go here to practice! http://www.sidexsideworld.com/viewforum.php?f=467

You need at the beginning of that and [/img ] at the back. No space between the g and the ]

Curt's right, if you copy and paste over the img link from your photobucket picture it already has the brackets and the img in front and behind, no extra work adding anything. I'm trying to remember but I think theres like 4 different links right underneath all your pics on photobucket and you want the img one.

In order to post pictures on the internet you must first save them to a photo hosting web site like photobucket or onfinite which are both free. You will find that there are several others to choose from I just prefer photobucket, www.photobucket.com.

Step .1

Save your pictures on your computer.

Step .2

Go ahead and register with photobucket if you haven't already (remember it's free). Once you've logged in you should see three windows to the right of the screen with buttons that say "Browse" at the end of each window. Select the LARGE size for posting on the PRC Forum and the MEDIUM size for posting in your signature.

Step .3

Click the browse button, a window will open and in the top pull down menu you should select your photo from your computer and double click on it. Then click UPLOAD. You follow the same steps if you wish to add more, just click on the browse button, find the picture and double click on it.

Step .4

Once you've got your pictures this far all you have to do is click the big blue "Dowload" button. After the download is completed you may see your picture and be asked to "Add titles, descriptions and tags to images below", this is your choice but I always choose "skip this step now".

Step .5

Your almost there, don't give up yet. You should see the original photobucket screen now with the windows and browse button, directly below those you should see the picture/pictures you just downloaded in your library, hold your mouse over the picture, underneath each picture is four address links in seperate windows that should pop up, go the very bottom one (the IMG link) left click over the link (it'll highlight blue) right click on it and select "Copy", then go over to your PRC reply your typing and right click there, select "Paste" and the picture link should appear in your post window. You will not see the picture, just the link at this point, at the bottom of each reply page next to the "Submit" button is a "Review" button, click on the "Review" button to view your post and your picture, if everything looks good then submit your reply.

Thanks to Brian Morton for putting this photo guide together for us!

Sorry for being a big dummy but I am not computer literate. If there isn't an add attachment selection I'm dead in the water. I have a picture of my buggy posted on the Buggy News or Forum site. The buggies in this post are awesome
