    To post a picture find the url like this http://www.floridaame.org/GalleryPages/IMG2005/Brian Konsela Elbow 0219.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.
    [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]

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

    [ IMG ]http://i356.photobucket.com/albums/oo7/ksouers/pb_test.jpg[/IMG]

    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.

    I too have been trying to figure out how to post photos. I have done it adding attachments but not showing the full photo in with the text.

    Please bear with me. This is a test.

    Hot Dog it worked. The <control V> did the trick.
    Thanks for the info.

    Another free site for posting pictures is Google's Picasa web albums: http://picasaweb.google.com/

    You need to have a (free) Google account but that's easy. If you already use gmail, you already have an account.

    Since photo bucket started charging i stopped using them
    You can easily post photos directly to this site.Angie has explained it all fully
    on her post for uploading images Click on attachments above.Click on image to upload and fix a photo up to 10 times.wait until photos are uploaded.Click on the the drop down box next to the attachments and post photos.You dont need
    a separate hosting site

    Let's see if I can explain this properly. You start by uploading your pics via the "Manage Attachments" button, as you've already worked out, but if you do nothing more they all just add on to the end of your post.

    So as you now type your post, wherever you want to add one of your (already uploaded) pics, you click on the little paperclip icon in the toolbar along the top menu and select which image you want to attach :

    IMG_1431.jpg

    You'll see the code place itself in your post and you can then continue typing underneath it.

    IMG_1496.jpg

    A couple of blank lines between pics and text helps with proper layout and spacing.

    IMG_1497.jpg

    And that is all there is to it!
