How to post photos

Posted by rwest (My Page) on

Here are three methods to post photos in either the Gallery or Discussion area. I see enough people asking I thought I would post it.

Ok, you have two easy ways to do it and one hard way

1) For quick posting: Go to www.tinypic.com.

  • Click the "Browse" button to find the picture you want to post from your computer.
  • Select the picture then click "Host It". After a few moments (depending on connection speed and size of the image) a few tags will appear at the bottom.
  • Simply copy and paste the entire contents of the "Tag" entry into your forum post.

    Viola, you have posted a picture.

    2) Recommended:Start a photobucket album (www.photobucket.com). Every time you post a picture, you will have a "Tag" entry to cut and paste into your forum posts. This is the benefit over the other online photo album sites.

    3) Most difficult: Go to a picture you have posted in your Webshots or other album.

  • Right click on the photo and choose "Properties".
  • You will see the image url. Copy this URL and paste it into your forum post.
  • In front of the url add (img src=" including the quote but change the ( to a <
  • At the end of the pasted url add "> including the quote.
  • This process will work to link to any photo on the internet.

    This will link back to your Webshots or other hosted photo.

    That is photo posting 101. Good Luck.

    A word of caution. Do not post a link back to tinypic in the "Optional URL Link". At times, people post undesirable pictures on tinypic.com. You do not want anyone to accidently browse to the next anonymous post to find an undesired photo.

    RE: How to post photos

    To add to Rwest's instruction on step 3, once you know the URL of the picture you want to post, say...

    http://graphics.thathomesite.com/graphics/clip/pool.gif

    write it like this:

    <img src="http://graphics.thathomesite.com/graphics/clip/pool.gif">

    and you'll post a pic like this:

    Really excited to get started and get posting pics.

    EXCELLENT ... Thanks for the useful post.

    I think it's worth mentioning that the link to be copied and pasted is the HTML FOR WESITES one ... I had a bit of difficulty figuring out which of the 4 alternatives I should have copied.

    Ok, I am going to try this. I also noticed one panel that is wrinkled a bit. I tried to get this to come up in a picture. Not sure how good you will be able to see it. Ok, lets see if this works.

    Thanks for the instructions but I'm still confused. I was able to attach a photo but it could only be viewed by using the "Here is a link that might be useful". I wanted my picture to appear along with my message but I couldn't figure it out, what did I do wrong?
