This tutorial is for posting photos using the site vgy.me   There is now an option to directly post photos by attaching them from this site, but it requires them to be under 30kb, which is a pain to get and not big enough for most purposes.  Here is how I used vgy.me as a hosting site, much like how many of us used to use PhotoBucket.

Step 1:  Go to vgy.me  It will look like this, and you will need to create an account here





Step 2:  Enter all of the information here to create your account.  Once you are finished with that, sign in.





Step 3:  After creating the account you will sign in by clicking here, and it will take you to this screen to sign in.




Step 4:  Click anywhere in the big flowery background photo here to add photos.




Step 5:  Select all photos you would like to add and click "choose" here.




Step 6:  After choosing your photos, it will take you directly into the album and bypass this screen, but if you should want to go back into an album later, you can find them by clicking the dropdown menu on the top right where your screen name is and select "My Albums".  Select an album here to enter and choose photos if you are revisiting the photo later.




Step 7:  Click the little clipboard next to the [IMG] file under the BB Coded Direct URL.  This will automatically copy the link.  




Step 8:  Go back to WVAngler.com wherever you would like to post and paste this link.  It will show up as an [img] file while you are typing, but if you preview your post, post new topic, or add the post to another member's post, your photo should appear.


If you have any questions, just ask, and I will do my best to help you out.  I think we all miss seeing more photos in our forums, so hopefully this will help get everyone back to sharing those fish, flies, and all other great images we have always had here.

I am so used to using the old photobucket that I kept trying to paste the link into the image tool. 

This step is unnecessary, fyi.
