For everyone's viewing and posting pleasure we now have Imageshack image hosting integrated into the forums when posting new threads.

When posting you will see this below the ADDITIONAL OPTIONS section

Then choose the browse section to locate your file. Once you have chosen your file you can press the HOST IT! button

Once your image is uploaded you can copy the img code from one of the two fields and post it to your message.

IF you want to add more images to your post click on the HOST ANOTHER IMAGE ICON

Now you don't need to worry about uploading pictures to your own file space! ENJOY!

To keep the forums as tidy as possible we suggest you stick with the CLICKABLE THUMB image url when posting. Thanks!

One thing that needs to be stressed, especially to newcomers, is that ImageShack is not affiliated with this forum.  When you upload an image to ImageShack, you are putting your image on a third party hosting site.  The forum software does not know where to find the image, so you need to copy and paste the image location (or "URL") into your post.

If you merely upload the image and then click "Post" to post your message to the forum, the image you uploaded will not be seen.  It will be somewhere on ImageShack's website, but nobody will know where to find it, meaning it is essentially lost.

I think duplicate posts made by users trying to use the ImageShack tool unsuccessfully need to be removed since the forum already has rules in place regarding post counts to access certain forum services.

Generally speaking, these situations do get cleaned up by myself or other moderators.  As with all things however, exceptions exist and some things get missed.  Feel free to use the "report to moderator" feature should you encounter threads like this in the future.

I just signed up with Image Shack in order to post on this site.  I think it is very important to advise new users that are going to be posting photos of currency to change their settings in their Image Shack profile to private as soon as they register, instead of the "public" default setting that allows all IS users to see the photos you upload.  You can do this here:
