How to post images and photos in this forum

Postby Winston » March 2nd, 2008, 9:32 pm

Here is how to post images and photos here in the forum.

First, upload your images to your website or a photo sharing site, such as Yahoo Photo Bucket or Picasa Images by Google.

Then, copy the image URL of the image and insert it between these tags:

Code: Select all
[img]image URL[/img]


You can get the Image URL by right clicking on a photo and selecting "Copy Image URL" or something similar.

Make sure to include the "http://" part of the URL.

If you have a website, simply upload the photo to your site and then link the URL of it in the manner described above.

Or you can paste an Image URL and then highlight it and click on the "Img" button in the menu above to wrap the tags around it.

How about photos that are on the hard drive and not on websites?

The videos are not working. The videos are uploaded to YouTube and I'm using the appropriate youtube tag. For example the below video doesn't work. Any suggestions?

1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

You have to upload them to a photo sharing site first. Like picasaweb or Google albums or Flickr. Then embed the image links as described above.
