    Posting Pictures on the Forums

    Hello all,

    I've written a little how-to that I would eventually like to add to our FAQ.

    If interested, please take a look and let me know if you would have anything to add to my instructions. Thank you!

    Attach a photo:
    - Initiate a new post/thread by clicking the "post reply" button within
    a thread, or clicking on the "new thread" button.
    -Click on the paperclip within the tools on the "reply to thread" area.
    -A little drop-down menu will open, with a menu item that says "manage
    attachments". Click on "manage attachments".
    -Click the "browse" button.
    - Another dialog box will open called "choose file". Navigate to the
    location of the photo on your computer, select it, and click the "open"
    button. This dialog box will now close.
    -You're back on the "manage attachments" dialog box. Click the button
    that says "upload". You'll see it appear in a new area called "current
    attachments". Go up to the upper-right and click on the link that says
    "Close this window".
    -Back in your message area, click the paperclip again. You'll see your
    new file available in the drop-down menu. Click the photo file name. A
    link to the photo will appear in your message area. Do not alter this
    inserted text or the link will not work properly. Once you submit your
    message, the link will appear differently.

    If you have your photo on a Web site, you can also attach a photo's URL
    (Web address) and upload it from your server. (this can either be
    accomplished through the "manage attachments" area or by clicking on the
    "picture" icon in the tool bar, the yellow picture of mountains and a
    sun.) You also have the ability to upload a photo from your computer by
    typing the path to the photo, such as C:\desktop\images\photo.jpg Note:
    If you delete or move the photo, I believe the photo will no longer
    display on the fourm.

    Canox C-150 AC/DC-HF / manual, parts

    I've recently acquired this older welder, a Canox C-150 AC/DC-HF stick and tig welder. I am looking for information on a manual and parts source. Right now I think the transformer in the tig section may be broken, but am just trying to check it out now. This only has a simple plug to run the tig. The remote switch works, but there is no power at the plug end. I'd appreciate any information anyone may have. Thanks

    Here's another free image hosting website with fewer ads than most, and a MUCH easier user interface. It provides copy/pastable links beside each pic, and each pic in 3 sizes: thumbnail, standard (resized), and original (full-size). It also allows captions directly below each pic, several ways to view each album, and unlimited albums/pics/vids. Only the size of each is limited, but I've never hit that limit on any of my media. Here are a few examples:

    Copy the Link address
    Click on the Postcard icon and paste the address there.
    Can you use Flickr?

    My wife says give this guy a huge THUMBS UP! There's no sense in trying to upload an original 8 or 10 MB shot direct from the camera to any online forum (that level of detail is seldom ever needed); but there's a lot of folks out there who do just that, especially in forwarded email.
    Testing (plz ignore):

    [...Ok, so that apparently didn't work....]

    Posting pics from your iPhone

    If you'd like to post a picture directly from your iPhone (or any smartphone), there's no automated way to do this yet. But you're welcome to send the pics as attachments to Just let us know the title of your post and we should be able to attach. Being a manual process, please allow us some time make that happen. An iPhone lets you group up to five photos in a single email. Newer models even resize the photos as you send, select the Medium size.

    As an option, you may want to sync your phone with a desktop or laptop computer to transfer the photos and post on your own. Pretty easy -- just Google that. Either way, we want to see those pictures.
