Adam,

This question has been asked alot lately. Recently in the post titled "Posting a picture on profile or forum question" in the General Feedback forum, Webmaster Bill gave a concise how to, including a link to the directions. All you need are some digital or scanned pictures and a little web space on your ISP server. You will also need an FTP (file transfer protocol) program to upload the pictures to your web space. There are several free shareware FTP's that work fine.

That should get you on your way.

Adam:
Images of your car pictures have to be located somewhere that the internet/world wide web (www) can find them whenever someone wants to look at them. This means that the pictures will have to be copied to a computer/server that is always on and always connected to the web with an "address" that is known (or can be found) by all the other computers in the world that hook up to the WWW .

When you signed up with your service provider (ISP), they probably gave you a free, small space on THEIR computer/server to store pictures, home pages, or other documents that you want the world to see. You will need one of the File Transfer Protocal (FTP) programs to copy your scanned pictures from your computer to the ISP computer/server. Some ISPs will let you transfer files to their server without this FTP program, but most require an FTP "Middleman".

Once it is there, you can "post pictures" here. You aren't really putting the picture here on MercedesShop, just a link/command that says "when I want my signature or picture to be seen in one of my posts at MercedesShop, grab a copy of the picture from my ISP and temporarily reproduce it on the screen of whomever is looking at my post".

Hope this helps.

And to sum it up, that is a great way to save server space for the valuable verbiage which is posted here.

Adam,

There are several ways you can do this, but the most common is to put on a Web Server, do a little research on your part and decide where to store your pictures/information.

If you have DSL or Cable you are can always be connected to the Web, you can skip finding a Web Server because that is what your going to make your home computer. If you have a regular modem connection proceed with the info below.


You may have "Free" Web space available through your local ISP, or you can simply signup at one of the many "free Web Hosting" sites available. I prefer to do the second route as you never now when you maybe switching ISP's (many competetive plans available).

Once you have decided on a Web Host, you can signup and use the provided tools and instructions that are usually available. Geocities is one place, and Homestead as well, I believe you can locate dozens if you try, pick one that has good instructions and tools for you to use.

Try http://www.100best-free-web-space.com/ to start your search.


Just follow the instructions on creating a "web page" once you pick a site, you can make the page you create fancy or just pain boring (my case). Homestead has a tool that makes uploading your pictures easy and then you can paste them on the page anywhere you like.

I suggest you upload pictures from work if (on your own time of course) they are Internet enabled. You are looking for a fast transfer time if you are impatient like me, otherwise a modem is fine.

Thats basically if;
1) Transfer images into a computer (scanner / direct from digital camera / cd - availabel while processing regular film). You can do this at home or work.
2) Upload to Web Server or File Server that you have created space on with your own page.

Figure about a hour to set up your site, once you do you will be glad since you can store family pictures or anything you want on other pages you create. Most importantly all this is available from any computer connected to the Web.

Let us know if you hit any snags along the way.

Yury,

On the post screen near the bottom hit the Browse button and pull them from the location on your comp. Also there is a size limitation I can't remember right off hand what it is ... Hope this helps.
