    Default Inserting Images

    I have always wanted to insert images in my posts. How do you do that? Can anyone help? Thanks!

    To insert an image in a post first click the Img button above where you write your post and it will give you this [img] Next enter the website where the image is located such as http://www.help2go.com/components/co...c29273237b.gif
    Then you would click the Img button again which will give you this [/img].

    Put it together and it will look like this
    Code:
    and when you post your thread it will look like this


    Hope this helps

    Thanks, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Frustating.

    I just tried the link you gave and it said it was not available. Make sure it is not to a image that requires a login to view. Try something else to make sure that it is not something on your end.


    edit: Just went to http://www.spundreams.com/holiday/Christmas/ and it says to not link directly to the images on its site. You would need to download the image to your computer then add it as an attachment on any post.

    one of the easiest ways is to use something such as photobucket you can upload pics from your PC and then copy the image from there it looks like already said at front would be as below
    [IMG]Then the image code like http:// then at the end[/IMG]

    Link for photobucket http://photobucket.com/

    To copy from say google image search or whatever you just do as above

    [IMG]then copy and paste image url in between here [/IMG] so for instance if you copy and paste the line below
    http://cat-photographers.com/search/r-jpg/196.jpg in between [IMG][/IMG] then insert in post it should show up as long as the forum allows you to post images

    I can download it to my picture folder which is in my documents. But then I do not know how to get the URL to the folder. When I click on my documents there is a widow comes up but no URL.

    Another question is how do I pick out one picture from among several on a page?

    I am naive at this, but have been trying to put these pictures in different forum posts and never could figure it out. I see others do it, but maybe it is in the settings somewhere.

    If you have the pic saved to your computer you can add it as an attachment to you post. See the screen shots below. Note the mouse location.

    This is the best I can do. I sure wish I could just put the image in the post by itself.
