    Hi,

    I can post a photo from my desktop into a post as an attachment, using the "Additional Options" box.

    I would like to know how to post a photo so that it appears directly in the post. (Not as an attachment).

    A lot seem to do it this way. Seems better if two or three photo's are posted.

    Thank you

    Dave

    Resize your picture to 800 x 600 pixels or smaller then upload to Photoshop.

    Right click on your picture which will offer some options. Click on the IMG option near bottom to copy the image HTML code to the scratchpad. In your post press Ctrl-V to paste the image code into your text.

    Use the Preview function to check that you've done what you intended to do.

    Marv,

    I have the photo in Photoshop, I've rt clicked and I do get a lot of options but not IMG. What does IMG stand for?

    I did more luck than anything end up with the photo's web address.

    Sorry Marv I'm lost.

    Aah,

    I think I may have caused some confusion - appologies all round.

    I don't want the image code, I want the image, or in my case the photo.

    Dave,
    To insert a photo, the photo must be able to be accessed at a web site on the internet.

    Marv said to upload it to Photoshop but I think he meant to type Photo Bucket, which is an image hosting site that many of us use. Some of the sites restrict the use by people that are not in the US. I think Photobucket can be used worldwide. You have to sign up and create an account, but everything is free.

    Here is the link to Photobucket home page.
    http://photobucket.com

    This a link to my account.
    http://s338.photobucket.com/albums/n404/NMSteam/

    And here is an example of what gets pasted into your message.


    Code:
    [IMG]http://i338.photobucket.com/albums/n404/NMSteam/Air%20Cooled%20Tiny/OilCup-1.jpg[/img]
    And the result is

    Hi Gail,

    I did open account in Photoshop but could not find IMG.

    Not a problem I will try Photobucket.

    Click - drag - click would be nice especially for old sods like me - born in the dark ages.

    Thank you -I'll give it a go ;D

    Dave,
    Here is a screen shot within an album in Photobucket.

    I have rolled over the Heisler photo and that has produced the share/copy pull down menu below the thumbnail photo. The bottom item in the menu is the IMG code. Click that and it should flash briefly "copied".

    With that information on your clipboard, in your message on HMEM paste it in using control V where you want the photo.

    One thing to be aware of. Since this is a link to a photo that is not stored on HMEM, if the photo is removed from the external site, in this case Photobucket, it will no longer show in your post. Attached photos, as you have been doing, are stored on the HMEM server so that is not a concern.

    Hi Gail,

    Ah you don't get that IMG code in Photoshop - well I didn't :D

    Well that is interesting, I wondered why the photos had to be uploaded first. To me it is still a strange thing to do, but there again my computer knowledge is very limited.
    I did so like my slide rule ;D

    Thanks Gail
