Hi,

I want to post my pics on the site for people to see. I have yet to figure out how to do this and have simply been posting links to my flickr account. I know I need to use the Img above, but then what? Do I simply insert the link after? Could anyone help me with some pretty basic directions? (I am good with technology, but not the lingo)

Thanks!

OK... I am a little confused. I looked under the discussion section at announcements and there are only 2 of them.... LOL, I am thinking I am not looking in the correct spot????

There is some sort of ironic humor... I said above I am pretty good with technology and I can't even find the post to tell me how to do it.... LOL

Here is how you post a pic. You need the URL of the photo which will usually end in .jpg
Code:
[img]http://www.yourhostsite.com/filenameofphoto.jpg[/img]
you can get the URL of the photo by right clicking on it and clicking properties (winxp anyway)



It appears under Address (URL):



The Address (URL) of the fish at the top of this forum is
http://www.cichlid-forum.com/images/ere ... eader4.jpg

so to post the pic you would use
Code:
[img]http://www.cichlid-forum.com/images/eretmodus_header4.jpg[/img]
which would result in


With some photo hosting services, when you right click on the photo it will have extra characters at the end of the URL for example
http://www.cichlid-forum.com/images/ere ... ng.com2341

If this happens, delete everything after .jpg

The biggest rookie mistake is trying to post a URL like
C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Pictures\fish01.jpg

Although your computer may be on the internet, your hard drive is not actually part of the internet.
