Default How to post a picture.

To post a picture find the url like this http://www.floridaame.org/GalleryPag...bow%200219.JPG

highlight the url and hit the button that says Img, you will end up with a code that looks like this..
Code:
[img]http://www.floridaame.org/GalleryPages/IMG2005/Brian%20Konsela%20%20Elbow%200219.JPG[/img]
when you post that code it will show as a picture.


So all there is to it is the
Code:
[img]web address goes here[/img]
If you need a place to host pictures on the web you can do it free at...

If the url is highlighted when you click the IMG button it could put the tags on the image and it should work.

I'll add another free site.

www.freeimagehosting.net

Edit: This site only allows images smaller than 1024 x 768 and often the image will be removed within the month. Excellent for sites like Ebay, but not here. Here you want the image to stay longer than one month. Ignore my free site for posting images that you intend to remain indefinately

I'm sorry, but i don't get it!
i would like to post some of my shop pic's. and when i click on insert image. there is 2 img's that appear in the post with parentheses around them and it does not offer any way to insert the pic or the code as you sat it.
so could somebody please give me a step by step to get a private pic off of the hd and into a post on this forum.

bmuss,
First, you have to upload your pictures to a server. Photobucket is a good one, and it's free. There are instructions on their web pages to assist in uploading to them.

You will need to keep two browser windows open, one to photobucket and one for your post at HMEM.

Once you have your pictures uploaded, put the mouse over the picture you want to show in your post, a small menu will display underneath it. Move the mouse down to the Img code window and left click once.


The link is now saved. Go back to your post and type <ctrl> V, the link will be pasted into your post.

Let us know if you are still having problems.

One caveat with Photobucket and probably similar websites: Once you hit a certain number of uploaded pics, somewhere around 400 I think, they lock your account and all the links you've made to those pics stop working until you send them money. This happened to Metal Butcher right as he was in the thick of a very heavily-watched build log.

I have 930 pictures on my Photobucket account and have never had a problem.

It's the bandwidth they limit.
If you exceed 10GB in any one month they will lock your account until the following month.
Photobucket is a great free photo hosting site.

For videos, YouTube is much better.
Mostly, because it is driven by greed.

I contribute to that because I have several "partnered" videos on YouTube.
If you have videos that are getting enough hits for YouTube to notice, they will offer to"partner" them.
With your permission they attach related Google ads your videos they are interested in.
As people click on those ads, Google makes money and they give you a tiny cut.

It averages about $120 ever other month for me.

Use Photobucket for pictures and YouTube for videos.
If your videos are popular enough you may end up getting money for nothing as well.

Rick
