HOW DO I UPLOAD A PICTURE TO THESE FORUMS?
As of August 2006, please use the conceptart.org attachment manager to post your artwork. This ensures that your art will always be hosted by the conceptart.org servers. Unlike using Photobucket or Imageshack, your artwork will A) Show up as a thumbnail, and B) Never disappear from your thread. (If you want to update or change your art eventually, you may edit your actual post at any time to do so.)
To post your art:
Click "Post New Thread."
Click the small Paperclip icon that appears in the New Thread editing window. It should be near the top center of your editing box. Or, scroll down until you see a button, "Manage Attachments."
This button (or the Paperclip button) will open a pop-up window where you may then use the Browse funtion to find your art on your own computer.
Once you have filled in the field that points to your art, click Upload. (Follow the Artwork Manager's chart recommendations for acceptable artwork sizes and acceptable file types.)
Once your art is uploaded, click "Close" to close the Attachment Manager.
You may now click "Submit New Thread," if you are ready, and your New Post will show your attached artwork.
To remotely host a photo of yourself or other non-artwork related item, or to link to a picture that you don't need to archive here, you can use the image tags found in the New Thread editor. Click the button that looks like a mountain with a yellow sky and little sun to link to an image. Or, if you're a more advanced forum user, wrap image tags around the link to the artwork manually by using brackets.
