Copy and paste the link with IMG in the bar.
Just paste into your listing. That simple!!!
You might have to answer a question, or watch a 5 second video\advertisement to get a code, then enter the code.Its all right in front of you, will tell you where to enter code you will not have to change the page you are looking at.Its all about advertising $$$$$$...
No big deal!

Docs, that is a great looking belt-fed you have there!

Thanks for posting up the info on posting pictures for the one's who struggle with that stuff.

Here is a question for anyone that might have an answer: I have been using Photo Bucket for a long time and it works well, However more recently the site has been running really SLOW. I believe it is due to the ad's? Does anyone know how I can speed up each visit to get the URL link, the picture download goes smoothly, just not navigating thru all my pictures.

Thanks for any help.

I noticed that about year back. 

Not sure? That's why I use tiny pic.

I use tiny pic and photo bucket. I've had the same issues with both of them, more so with photo bucket.

Not sure what size files your uploading, if they're large files that may be an issue with why it takes so long to navigate. I generally resize everything to the size I need prior to uploading.

tiny pic is bare bones image hosting with no extras, that I know of, like the capability to edit your images whereas photo bucket does.

Best thing would be to give it a try and see how it works for you.

G36, you can post pictures that are stored in your computer, that is the good news.

Please take a look at Dave's original Post on this: "How to Post w/Pictures on the New Sturmgewehr.com Site" Here under Site Help and General Info.

it is the link on the bottom left when posting, it is labeled "Drag Files Here" and has a paper clip next to it. OK, now for the other news, the picture size needs to be smaller than a specific size, which can be done pretty quickly. Again, take a look at Dave's post and happy posting!

Dennis

Also note that Seaman / Corporals currently don't have any image hosting ... When the membership based levels are introduced folks with the appropriate level of membership will be able to upload images directly to the site.

Strange, that I see others with the rank of seaman /corporal posting pics but I can't post pics with same rank, 12 years on sturm and only a Corporal?

I am going to disagree with that statement, Dave, Andy and Buddy have done everything possible at No Cost and to keep us as safe as possible from scammers.

The new Sturm site is going to help facilitate their efforts. If you go back and look at the monthly folks that donate, to keep the site up and running, well let's just say it was rather    Pathetic. Most months there were only 10 - 14 of our names on the list, call it "regular donors" and that is no way to keep a quality site up and running.

As it was mentioned in an early post, these guys had many times been flipping the bill to pick up the slack out of their own pocket. 

Pretty much every other site (eBay, G.B, Guns America and the list goes on) it will cost you to place an ad. I am sure the cost to do business here will be Minimal, probably no more than I was sending every month anyway. There are a lot of folks that just visit the site to keep up with what's going on and that is still Free to do, just sign up :)

With that being said, Happy Posting and make some money!
