Basically there are 2 ways of doing this,

The 1st option is if you are using a Host like Photobucket, All you do is Copy and Paste the 4th Code beside the photo on Photobucket, It will be the IMG Code, This will upload a Full Size photo to the Forum

If you want to upload a Photo from Google or another source EXCEPT your home computer, The all you need to do is add the URL of the Photo in between this code. , Make sure there are No Spaces so it is a concurrent link..

The 2nd Option to Upload is direct from your Computer, This is done by clicking on the sub-bar above , Click on the Image upload Icon as shown here


From there you will view this screen, which you will show "From Computer" Or "URL", Select "From Computer" and press "Select Files",


Now you can select up to 10 Photos, But try and do 5 at a time, as depending on the size of the Photo it can take a while, Ideally Photos need to be smaller than 300kb .. After this press Upload Files..


Your post should know look like this..


Once you press Post , your Photo,s will show as Thumbnails, (Small PICs)

Now if you want to show these Images Enlarged, Click on the Thumbnail image, You will see the Image Enlarged, Now whilst hovering your curser over the image , RIGHT Click your mouse and scroll down to where it say's " Open Image in New Tab" and select it.

You will now see a New Tab opened on top of your computer screen as Attachment,


Click on this Tab , Now Copy the URL...


Now Paste that URL inside this Command again with No Spaces.. The IMG command is so the forum will open the link automatically and Show the large Photo..

It is easier if you Edit the original Upload Post with the Thumbnails and add the the img with the URL links to it,

Once you have done this a couple times , you will soon find it real easy..

Uploading a Video from Youtube..

Easier but similar to Photo Upload , This time select the Video Upload Icon for the Sub-bar and select.


This opens a Pop Up window ,


From here just Copy the Youtube URL link from the Tab bar on Youtube


and paste it on the the Pop Up screen and press OK..


Now just Post and the YouTube Video will now be Embedded on to the Forum ..

Thankyou Clive for the update!!! a quick note: Sharing pictures from Face Book.... I have found right clicking the FB picture and pasting in the replying box puts the pictures there without any fuss.

I've tried to send some photo's when using PM but it only gives me the URL option. The function of uploading from home computer isn't there when sending a private msg. Is that normal??

Unfortunately Yes it is how the system is set up from Vbulletin Matte, If you have Photo's on photobucket then you can add those using the IMG Code,
I have checked the Data control panel to see if i can switch on the Photo from computer links, but it isnt available mate..
