How to post your photos

There are four ways to include pictures in your post or attach a file.

1  Attachments

This is the fastest method and quite easy, providing you are able to reduce the file size of your image to 500kb or less. At the bottom of the posting window you'll see an Attach window like this



For full details, please see - How to add Photos and other files to your message in the Help section.


2  Email

This is the easiest, but may take up to 12 hours to be added to your post. Email your photo to photos@douglasmotorcycles.net and we will post it for you. Photos can be any file size.

You can send the photos right now by clicking here - Send photos to douglasmotorcycles.net


3  Uploading to your own webspace or server

If you have your own webspace with your ISP, or access to a server, this takes a bit more time but gives you more control over how your photos are displayed. It requires FTP software and some technical expertise. Please see - How to add Photos and other files to your message in the Help section.


4  Displaying a photo from another web site

Use right click > Properties to get the URL of the photo as it appears on the other site. You can highlight the Address (URL) with your mouse and use control+c to copy it. Please see - How to add Photos and other files to your message in the Help section for details on how to add it to your post.

Please be sure to acknowledge the source of the photo with a clickable link to the website.
