Here is a thorough walk-through of how to post a picture:
If anyone has any qustions feel free to PM me and I can help clarify
The images that have black bars under them are thumbnails. So you can click the image for a bigger view.
How to post a picture
A)You need to get a place that will host your images. You can use the more popular Photobucket
B)To take a picture from your computer and upload it. You need to do the following steps:
I'll start with an example from Frozentears.org
First we have the website splash page, we want to save and upload the splash picture. First thing we do is right click on the image and an option will come up and we want the choose "save image..."
Once we click save image you should get a dialog box that looks something like this. In our example I'm going to save it to the desktop.
Once the image is saved all we have to do now is upload it. So.. first thing we do is long into our Photobucket account. After doing so, we can either upload images to an album or just the front page. For this example I'm going to upload the image on the fron page.
So.. once we get to the front page I want to upload the splash image that we saved before hand.
1. Click on the choose button and select your image
Once you have the image selected select "open" and the image address from your computer is then placed into the upload field. Once you reach this point, press submit.
It will then upload your image online, and you can now post it.
C)Now that we have our image uploaded, we can now post it. I would recommend posting thumbnails on the boards. As not everyone has higher speed internet connections. You have the ability to post Thumbnails from both Imageshack and Photobucket.
Here is what you want to copy in Imageshack:
Once you paste that into a message box it should look like this:
This is what it looks liked posted:
Here is the code you want to put into the message box
This is what the thumbnail looks like posted:
C.2) Using those img Tags:
Now, we've all heard this crazy talk of "putting the url inbetween the img tags", but we don't understand what that is suppost to mean. What a is a url? And where does one aquire these img tags?
The url of an image is the address of the picture when it's uploaded to the internet. (ie. " http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v616/Romanov/th_Temp-Flash.jpg
" is a img url)
What you want to do with that url is stick it between IMG tags to get image tags you press this button:
Once you get the IMG tags in your message box, you just stick the url of you uploaded image in between them.
So it would look like this:
UNLESS.... you have used a thumbnail code, where the IMG tags already are there. If you are using thumbnail code then you don't have to worry about img tags, because Imageshack, or Photobucket includes them already for you.
