Default How-To post a photo

To post a photo here:

1. Your photo MUST already be out on the Internet somewhere.
2. You MUST know the direct URL to access it.

Inside of the message editor is a row of button icons - the fourth one from the right is used to insert your photo. Just click on it and then enter the URL (internet address) of your photo. To be sure that it shows up click on the "Preview Post" button before you save the message with the "Post New Topic" button.

Here's a sample photo - best to keep it 640x480 or smaller and save it as JPG with quality of 75 or 80.

Default What am I doing wrong, Steve?

I'm getting very frustrated. I followed your instructions on how to post a photo exactly, but when I tried to do it the 'preview' post only showed the address and not the photo, and the text for the URL wasn't even highlighted. I know I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what. For example, when I clicked on the 'insert photo" button and the prompt to insert the URL address pops up, I put in: www.pbase.com/image/(and then the image #). What the heck am I doing wrong? Sorry to sound like a dummy. Also, how does one go about posting their own photo under their IDs as I have seen here? BTW, the new look of your site is gorgeous. Thanks for your dedication and input!

Regards,

Willa D.

I'm with Willa.

I can't post a photo properly using a photo from my website, but I think I can re-post the photo Steve already has posted above. Lets' See:

Yep. What's up with that? My Link on the other post is a valid link if pasted to my browser.

Some of those photo hosting sites have IP blocking that keeps another site from displaying images stored on their servers. This allows you to see the images in your browser but when called from another site like the forums here, it is blocked.

If you have personal web space available then I would suggest you put the picture there and then try and see if it shows up here. If it does work you'll be able to see it when you hit the "Preview Post" button before actually posting the message.

Default That makes sense to me..

Oh well, thanks for the explanation, Steve. That is surely what's happening with me, I suspect.

Willa

I don't think my site has IP blocking enabled. I can link to the same photo from another site that I webmaster for and view the photo just fine. I'm not the smartest webmaster around so there may be something I'm overlooking...

Well, it works for me. I just went to your page and cut-n-pasted the image URL here using the Insert a Picture button (forth one over from the right) on the toolbar.

Ok. It magically started working. Maybe I wasn't holding my mouth right. Wonder if Willa can post now?
