How to add a picture in your post
« on: March 25, 2010, 01:13:15 PM »
Paul, how do you insert the images directly into your post? Can't figure it out. I just know how to attach an image, but that's not what I want...

Just use the 'Insert Image' button (that's the little Mona Lisa icon in the posting page) and then stick the URL to the image in there.

Here's an example:



Just "Quote" this post to see how it's written.

For more details on what all them crazy buttons do, see the help page for BBCode here.

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Thanks! So, if I just have the image on my computer I can only attach it, but if I have the blog post up I can link back to the pictures and thus insert them?

i'm confused. I don't have a blog so how do i attach or insert a picture?
i found the mona lisa icon, but i'm assuming that's for images from a website.

Rookiebaker - you don't need a site.  You can upload a picture from your computer or camera, or, you can link to them from sites like photobucket.com, flicker.com, etc.

It is easiest just to upload them!  Click on 'Media'.

When you are writing a post, there's a red link below the box called "Additional Options" that you want to click on. It will let you browse your computer for images and attach them to the post as small thumbnails below the entry.

You can get lots of helpful tips if you click "HELP" on the main task bar at top.
