how do you post pictures on this site?

Instructions are here:

TMP link

Basically you store you pictures somewhere, your blog or a picture posting site and you place the image location properties in your TMP post.

It takes a bit of practice but the instructions are good.

1. Join flickr or photobucket or other current online photo repository.

2. Upload photo(s).

3. Go to desired photo. Click on (or find) the "Share" button. You will get many choices, one will say BBCode. Copy the code.

4. Go to TMP message thread. Paste the BBCode into the dialog box. BUT…strip out everything in the BBCode except the image, i.e. code contained between the "(bracket)img(bracket)" and "(bracket)/img(bracket)" (keep the brackets!).

5. That should do it, but Preview first just in case.

Much simpler if you post your pictures on your own blog, extract the image properties, insert into a TMP post unmodified.

I even have a spare blog just to put pictures on so I can show them on TMP!

@ The Hound:

Here are some notes I made from a post on TMP previously:

Open the Tiny Pics website and you can use your own photos.

For instance, let's say you want to post a picture located on your PC, mobile phone, etc.
Go to an online image hosting site like this one:
tinypic.com
Select the option to browse your files and select the photo you want to post. It asks what size you want, so choose a thumbnail size. It will come out fine and not really a thumbnail size.
It offers several formats. For sites like TMP, Left click on forums and message boards' (not 'websites' for TMP). Follow the instructions, copy and paste the url directly into TMP and Bobs your uncle. You can enter your narrative and Submit.

I use Dropbox, but I'm considering using another service.
