If you wonder how to post the pictures to the board, read throug these "instructions", which should help you to get familiar with this simple process!

In order for your image to show up in your post, you must first have that image uploaded to an Image Hosting Site (IHS). Most IHSs will give you a personal web space of your own where you can upload your images to. If you currently do not have an IHS that gives you some web space, you can look at the following links below: , ,
or other similar image hosting websites.

A few simple steps of how to do it:

1. Register to the website. Once you are registered you can start to upload pictures.

2. Click browse and find the image you want to upload from your personal computer, then choose the appropriate image size (800x600 or less) and push the Host it button!

3. After you have clicked Host it, you were taken to the next page (see below). Now, click the image (new page will open)!

4. You were taken to next page. Move your mouse cursor on the picture and click right mouse button. Then click (image) properties and coppy the (image) Location link address.

5. Now you need to return to Kia Soul Forums and paste the link to the address bar and submit your post!


Please do not post bigger pictures than 800x600!

Anything bigger than 800X600 will automatically push the window further to the right and if one does not have a big monitor, they will have to scroll over to see all of the image.

Plus if the viewer does not have broadband and are only on a dialup conncetion it would take a long time to download the image into the browser. Therefore its advisable to resize your image in any photo editing program to 800x600 size or less!

The "upload" from my computer will see the picture on my computer but it does not have butons/links to actually upload with. That does not let me insert a picture from my computer to this text insert.

If I select to insert a URL from a off site location it has the buttons to post here. That leads me to think the answer to my question was "no". We are not allowed to store pictures in our garage, use the link to insert pictures for viewing here. I even directly entered the URL for a picture on this site into the box and get the popup that this site would not allow me to do that.

Maybe stopping pics from being inserted into these posts is to save bandwidth, or something. Might overload the hardware.

My thought was that since I see so many pizza boxes from failed picture URLs if the pics were on this site they would be good at least as long as the site is up. Thanks anyway.

After you select the file to upload, click the 'Upload file(s)' text under the <Choose File> button. There is no button and this text link does not look like a text link but it works. Make sure that the cursor is located in the body of the post where you would like it embeded.
