if you're posting a whole bunch of pictures the best way for people to look at them is all in full size, one under the other. imagebam.com
allows us to do just that. so here's a quick rundown on how you go about posting a whole bunch of full size images directly in your thread.
updated October 21st, an even easier way thanks to the ImabeBam widget!
step 1: click on "New Thread" (or "New Post" if you're adding pictures to an existing thread).
step 2: underneath the message area and just below the "manage attachments" button, you'll see an ImageBam widget. simply click "select files", select your files, select content type (adult/sfw) and click "upload"!
step 3: the bb code for the thumbnails linking to full images should be inserted in your post. to convert this code to display the full sized images you'll need to copy it (select it all, right click, copy). in case the code isn't automatically inserted in your post, click on the "copy BB-code" button in the ImageBam widget.
step 4: click on the link under the ImageBam widget code, which will open this page in a new window: http://www.imagebam.com/free-hotlinking
step 5: paste the code you just copied in step (3) into the textbox (right click, paste). click the "convert" button.
step 6: copy and paste the converted code into your new thread message box and click submit new thread/submit reply. that's it, you're done!
