This little tutorial will help you to better understand the functionality of this service and attempt to answer your questions. Smile

Servimg is an FREE image host as there are others on the Net. It can host images of maximum size 2MB formats, bmp, gif, png, jpg and tif. A tool has been developed to create an account on Servimg from this forum. This tool creates an account using the mail and password you use on the forum. There is no risk with security and you can use this tool without fear.

The best part is that it's FREE with no limit on the amount of photos you upload. Very Happy

Step 1: When creating a new topic or reply to a topic you will see the text editor. This is where you can change your font size, add an image, link, video etc...
Look for this icon and click it >>>>>

Step 2: When the window opens you need to check either File (if the file is on your computer) or URL (if the image is located on a website or another hosting account) You will also see a drop down box so that you can choose which image size you would like. See photo below:

Image - This will add the full size image to your post.
Image URL - This is the location of your image. (You can use this code if you wish to then use BBcode to link your image by other means by using the image icon or link icon).

Choose "Image" to place the full size photo in your post.
*Firefox browsers will need to right click and copy/paste the code*

This what the window should look like:
