How do I put more than 5 pictures of Images in my OP?

Okay, I want to post more than five images of some in-game screenshots in my opening thread but this website keeps telling me that there is a limit of five attachments per post. However, I clearly see that sumomole and some other community members here have more than 5 images in the opening post of their mod / DLC threads.

Could it be that sumomole and the other members here really control the magic necessary to circumvent this imposed limit or is there a certain image hosting services being used to link the images provided?

sumomole's pictures aren't all attached to the first post, he has them attached to multiple posts and then references them using the [ img ] tag (without spaces). Other members may do something similar or host their images off-site rather than as attachments. thefiremind uses imageshack.us for his images.

So no, I don't think anyone is actually attaching more than 5 items per post.

Thanks Riiak! I'm researching methods now. You're a great help. Speaking of help, I may need more a bit later. I'll let you know.

ImageShack is totally free and generates thumbnails which can be useful sometimes, so I highly recommend it. Even if it says that the direct link to the image is available only to registered users, you can get it from the so-called "Forum link": it's the one without "my-images" and after removing ".th" from the name if present (you can add ".th" before the file extension by yourself if you want the thumbnail).

EDIT: Corrected ".php" to "my-images": I wasn't remembering exactly how links are generated.

I'll try ImageShack that today then. Thanks for the recommendations.
