We've added a new photograph hosting service for MTI forum users.

It's not got all the features and whizzy geegaws of PhotoBucket or ImageShack (or any of the other services for that matter). It only works within this forum (so it's of no use if you want to post here and, for example, on the GnATTERbox). It only works with JPG photographs. You can't upload a photo of the same name as a photo that someone else has uploaded*

On the otherhand, it's here, it's free and it's easy to use.

The URL you need is http://photos.mtimag.co.uk/.

You log in using your user ID and password from the forum and will see a dialog box to upload a photo. The script will reduce your photo in size if it's larger than 600 x 450 pixels - if you can do the reduction yourself beforehand, things will go a lot quicker for you.

Once you've loaded a photo, you'll be shown the code you need to put in your forum posts.


To post this photo I just wrote:
Code:
[img]http://photos.mtimag.co.uk/img_0864.jpg[/img]

Easy, isn't it?

* so why not put your initials in the filename to make it that little bit more unique?
