How to post pics??
« on: April 11, 2010, 02:02:19 AM »
Sorry if this is the wrong section.....please feel free to move it if it is.  But how in the world do you post pics to this site?????  I have a photobucket acct....but can't seem to make any of them work here.  Any tips/tricks to making this happen would be great.

Thanks,
Angie

There is a button above called "insert image" that will allow you to link to pictures.  [ img ] your http:/link here [/img]  - use that, but without the spaces.

It is in the row between the text controls and the smiley faces, right below the Italic button, between the kaleidoscope looking button and the planet. It is a tiny picture frame.

Nate answered that already, [ img]http://www.website.com/blahblah.jpg][ /img] but no spaces between the [ and img] or [ and /img]
[ img]http://co108w.col108.mail.live.com/mail/clear.gif[ /img] that without the spaces equals:




Hmmmm.... I did it correctly but the picture does not show up. Try this instead:  You should be able to just attach a 600-700 pixel wide image with your post by clicking on "Additional Options..." and then uploading your photo where it says "Attach:".  The picture you included was a link to the thumbnail on the image hosting site.  You will have to link to the larger photo or upload it here.

ok...lets try again.





ok....I've added attachment, but when looking at preview...nothing shows up.  So I'll post it and see if that makes a difference.  This is the only site I can't seem to attach pics to.  I hope this works....fingers crossed!!!
