posting photographs
« on: April 12, 2010, 10:58:27 am »
OK, so how do I take a picture from another site and have it appear in my post? I can copy & paste the html, but I don't know how to get the actual picture to appear.

Thanks.

When you are posting you have a little button under the I for the italics button.

 

Or you can type [ img ]http://www.xyz.jpg[ / img]

but with no spaces.  So if you hit Quote and see how my pic is showing, it's how the proper syntax works for the BBCode.

Let me know if you have any further trouble!

So the pictures have to hosted on the web somewhere, and we post a link to the picture? I think I understand... I'll go and give it a try.

After you hit the button below the I you paste the url between the brackets in the middle.

Or you can attach the photo if it's not already on the net, but this will show a smaller picture of it, with a link below to the full-size one.
1. Click "Additional Options" right below the text field to the left.
2. Click "Browse..." and select your file.
3. Post

By clicking "(more attachments)" you can add up to four images. Right now there is a 128 KB size limit, but it might be that we could raise it if this causes a problem.

It might be an MP3 player as Anusaya says. I honestly have no idea. I just picked the first picture I found interesting.
