Another Photo Question...

#1 Post by Ms Thrifty » Fri Jan 08, 2010 10:56 am

Does anyone know, please, how to attach a photo to a post (or to embed a photo, or whatever the technical term is)? I know Anjirose has done it, but I don't know how. And if anyone does know, could s/he kindly explain it simply? (Bearing in mind that I haven't even managed to attach an Avatar or create a signature yet!) I can send them with e-mails but the same option isn't available here. Thank you.

You cannot upload photos to a message like this and as far as I am aware nobody has managed it. What you do is upload the image to another site and then tell the server where to look for it.

In simple terms:
1) Click on "Post Reply" or "Quote" depending on what you want to do next. The buttons are easy to find.
2) Above the message window are a number of BBcode tags. Click on the one that says "Img".
3) Between the 2 sets of square brackets type the url of the image you want to display like this. [ img]type url here[/img]
4) There is no 4, just a slightly different way of doing it. Type the url first, highlight it, and then click on "Img".

Thank you, Steve, and sorry for the slow acknowledgement. I've only just seen this but will have a go when I get home from work. Thought I'd illustrate the "Snow" thread...

Apparently my OH has a Facebook page so, abhorrent as the idea is, I may ask him to put my photos there first, and see if that counts as uploading.

If you have webspace attached to your broadband account, you can use that.
