    For Sale ads are about worthless without pictures, so I thought I would put this together to help people out.

    1. Pick a photo hosting site lite www.photobucket.com and upload the photos you want to post.

    2. Selct the photo you want to insert in the ad and RIGHT CLICK on "IMG Code".

    3. PASTE that link into your ad and you are done. Repeat steps 2-3 to post additional photos.

    It really is that easy!!

    Thank you.

    It's not hard, and with a free account @ photobucket it's, well...FREE!
    If you have a slow 'net connection where sending pic's in email form is a pain, this is the way to go as you only need to upload the pics once, then just send them the "direct link".

    IMO, even crappy cell phone pics are better than nothing....

    Can the mods close the thread and make it a sticky?

    OK ... I reached my quota for photos posted with the ads ... How do I delete pictures that I posted with ads that I closed/sold the items? When I go to attachments in my profile, it allows me to delete ONLY pics for the current ads, whereas for past ads, it doesn't allow me to delete those pics.

    Please let me know...

    You have to go back to your ad and re-open it. Then go to your attachments and delete the photos you want. Then go back and reclose the ad. Basically your ad has to be open before you can delete any photos.

    Good idea! I think it should be a sticky for each of the classified sections, not just in the Questions, Ideas, etc.. category! :thumbup:

    While I agree photos are best...
    I drive truck and do everything from my (almost smart) phone.
    I can't seem to upload photos or just use them right off the phone.
    I'm sure it's operator error but, even following the above directions, it's just not working?

    I'm sure it's doable, but I can't puzzle it out. Thanks, though.

    This is what I use:

    You can attach pictures to a post but, you can post much better pictures by following these steps.

    1. Go to TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting (there are other picture hosting services out there that will do this also)
    2. Click on "Choose File", choose your picture. type a tag (It can be anything, not important) choosing to resize to 640x480 (Message Board)
    3. Click Upload Now.
    4. It will give you the results of the upload. Copy the code for the picture. It will be listed as "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards".
    5. Paste that code into your post.
    6. Submit the post.

    That's it!

    I am assuming you want to embed a picture, displayed in the ad without having to click on anything, correct? join photobucket and follow the instructions from the original post. If you're still having trouble then PM and i'll walk you through it. Goodluck
