How to attach picture as Thumbnails

I know how to attach a picture to a post but they show up full size , I see other have pictures that show as Thumbnails, then you click on it and it enlarges. How is this done?

Those are uploaded attachments from your computer. The big ones are linked from external hosting sites like Photobucket.

This applies to all except @drewabbs, he links his uploads somehow to show both in same post.

My secret:
Upload the doc like normal.
Click on the link once its been uploaded (or you can right click and select copy URL), and copy the URL in the address bar.

In the message text all you need to do is select the area you want the pictures then type the tags [Img]the link here[/img].

Could we sticky this thread somewhere, probably in the Photos & Videos forum?

Also, wonder if the forum titles should be edited, just notice a bunch include 2015 in the title, we have 2016s hitting the road now. Something more generic perhaps?

2015 Canyon SLT, Copper Red, 2WD, CC, SB, V6, Tow, blk leather, factory spray liner, safety pkg, generic roll up bed cover, Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller.

anyone know how to post a thumbnail from photobucket? When I try and paste the IMG thumbnail code, it displays a smaller version of the picture, but if someone clicks on it they go to my photo bucket library, it doesn't expand the picture within this forum as I see with other thumbnails.

2016 Colorado LT 4WD, Long-Box, Laser Blue/Jet Ash. Convenience & Luxury packages, Factory Spray-in Bed Liner, Safety Package, Trailering Package, Mud Flaps, Quad-fold G4 hard tonneau cover, 3" OEM steps, All-season OEM floor mats

Ordered 5/22/15

For those not knowing how to post up pictures, there are 2 preferred methods. As stated above, you can either [IMG] link a picture from an external source or you can upload as an attachment.

Here is how you upload using the [IMG] links:

1) Go into your photo account, for me I'm using photobucket:


2) Click on the link labeled [IMG], you'll see in this case I get a yellow "Copied" message:


3) Paste the link into your post:


4) Post your comment

Here is how you upload using the attachment method:

1) In your post (make sure you're in advance reply) and click the little paper clip labeled attachments:


2) A new window where you upload your images appears:


3) Click on "Choose File" to choose what pictures you want to upload:


4) Once you have all files chosen, click on "upload"


5) Click on "Close this window" in the upper right corner

6) post your comment

Here are the attachments as described in the 2nd steps:
