The facility of uploading pictures directly to Team-BHP has been enabled. Please do not use imgur or any other external photo hosting websites.
HOW TO UPLOAD PICTURES:
Step One : Click on the paperclip icon to open the Manage Attachments pop-up window.
Step Two : Select the pictures you wish to upload from your computer. Then click the "Upload" button.
Step Three : Your attachments are now uploaded and will be included in your post. You can close the pop-up window.
*NOTE* : Please be sure to "submit" your post within 30 minutes of uploading attachments. Else, your attachments will expire. If you need more time to prepare your content, preview the post ("go advanced" -> "preview post") every <30 minutes to prevent your attachments from expiring.

How to resize images:
Several BHPians have written in asking for a guide on resizing large pictures down to 4 MB (or less). Here are the simplest ways of going about it:
Option ONE : Download one of the many photo resizing tools available (google 'image resizer for Windows'). Click here to view an excellent tutorial on using resizing software.
OPTION TWO : Open the picture in Microsoft Paint (standard on your Windows OS), then press "Ctrl" & "W". Under "Stretch", enter 50-75% (as needed) for the horizontal and vertical fields. Click Save.
*NOTE* : If you're a power user, check out the FastStone Photo Resizer. A lot of us use this one.

Update! To make things more convenient for BHPians, we've just increased the max image file size to 4 MB :D.
