Hello all

My name is Jon and am new to the rebel side. I've been trooping with the badlands as a sandtrooper, and resently added a tie pilot. But I've been wanting to do a chewbacca for quite some time now and have finally started on him.
I've finished my stilts, have a Wookiee workshop skull/mask kit on order along with all that hair!.. but in the mean time I picked up some from a local (Edmonton) sally beauty supply to practice straightening and latch hooking.

My first question is.. won't be the last I'm sure. But, how do I load pics from my gallery to the site?
Any help would be great thanks!

Hey there! Welcome to the Rebels!

I'm excited to have a new Chewbacca in Edmonton, great to see some face characters around here.

The recommended way to display photos on the forums here is to set up a photobucket account and then link it using the "img" forum shortcut above your post.

I can be more detailed if you need it.

Yes please. I set up a photobucket account, but not sure how to transfer the photo/link..
I'm sure I'm totally missing something obvious..

Thanks for the help...

Alright, so once you upload your photo to Photobucket, click into the the individual picture. Just above the photo itself will be a row of coloured icons for sharing. (Facebook, Twitter, etc) To the right of those will be four grey icons, (link, envelope, download, share).

Click the grey link icon (hover over says "Get link codes")

In the the pop up that appears, on the right side, there is a "Photo Links" section labelled 'Email & IM", "Direct", "HTML", and "IMG"

Click the "IMG" box and copy the whole long string and paste it into your post here. The text should start with something like [URL=http://s296.photobucket.com/user/...... etc

That's it. Do that for each picture if you have multiple to share and it should appear normally here.

Looks like a good start. Make sure you also pop into the Chewbacca/Wookiee Forum to create a work in progress thread. The members and judges there can give a lot of great advice on your build for easier approval.
