How to Post Photos
« on: October 05, 2008, 06:57:51 PM »
Many thanks to Toclafane for the clear, concise instructions for PC users.

Is the picture on a website, like a blog or photobucket or flickr?  It needs to be.

Go to the page where the picture is displayed.

If you're using Internet Explorer:
 - right click on the picture
 - choose "Properties"
 - select and copy the URL that appears as "Address" - it may be quite long, so make sure to get all of it...

If you're using Firefox:
 - right click on the picture
 - select "Copy Image Location"...

...and then:
 - come back to where you want to post here, and in the Posting box where you type your message, click the little image of a picture which is under the I in the list at the top of the box.  That will bring up a little bit of code - paste your URL in there, between the ] and the [

...and thanks to hup for helping out Mac folks

in Safari, right click on image, choose Copy Image Address

with love,

Yabut, what about those with Macs, who have no "right click" button?  :(

I don't know anything about Macs, but I would think your browser gives you some way to find the URL of an image.  That's all you need.

I believe someone answered this in the original thread (the one with the instructions Toclafane so helpfully provided).  You can either search for it, or maybe a Mac person will respond here.

Gumshoe, did you do that just so we wouldn't have to be saddened every time we saw Toc's name?

No, but you're welcome! I did it because I am not terribly tech-savvy and was trying to learn how to post my photo in someplace other than the 'show yourself' thread.
