1. How do I post an image on maxforums?

First of all you need to have a hosting website, if you have your own web space and it allows direct linking then you can use that, all you need to do is type out the URL address of the image such as
and it will appear.

If you do not own any web space you should make an account at this is an image and video hosting website for this specific job. After registering, upload you images then use the 'Direct Link' they give you (the one starting 'http://') then paste it in your post/reply.

2. How large an image can I post here?

Embedded Images:

Maximum Dimensions: 800px x 600px

These limits are in place for two main reasons:

1. Simply for courtesy towards members on dial-up internet and also members with a monthly download limit.

2. To keep the forum layout intact, very wide images stretch the forum beyond the viewable area of most monitor resolutions and navigation is more difficult for the viewer.

Should you feel the need to post a larger image, please have the courtesy of posting either a text link or a thumbnail image link, (mentioned above) gives automatic code for this so you dont need to go to any extra effort. And also just mentioning how big the picture will be once viewed is a nice touch for people willnig to help you out.

Here are a couple of ways to post a linked picture on maxforums,
You should type these out in place of just your image URL

- Text Link:


...this produces the following


- Thumbnail Image Link:

sails = cloth indeed

you can use a simple e-poly object as well, use soft selection and noise so the middle has more deformation than the ends
