How To Post Photos in your messages! UPDATED!
« on: April 28, 2011, 09:24:53 PM »
UPDATED 02-15-16!

This is a "How To" on how to post photos in your messages here on this website... Also, please post photos no bigger than 800x600 pixels!

I've eliminated the previous instructions for photobucket, as they have redesigned their website since I last typed my step by step instructions on how to use their website. This option is the simplest, and it requires NO account at all....

Go here:

http://picpaste.novarata.net/

- In the middle of the screen should be a button that says: "Choose File." Click on that and select the file you want to upload.

- Then press the "Upload" button. Your image will upload and a new page will load... "Upload Successful" will be on the new page.

- Look for the third text box that says "Direct link." Click in that box, and the entire line will be highlighted. Right click your mouse and click "copy" on the menu.

- Come to your post you want to put on this site. Click the first button on the 2nd row (it says "Insert Image" if you hover over it).

- Paste your link in between the IMG tags that appear.

You are done!!!

In case anyone wants to get fancy, you can embed an image as a thumbnail or just smaller version which can be clicked to show it full size using the following code manually:

Code: [Select]
[img width=x height=x]{url}[/img]
Like for example the following code:
Code: [Select]
[img width=192 height=256]http://domineaux.net/images/KimberEclipseProII.jpg[/img]

FYI - I've redone the "how to" and eliminated the Photobucket instructions. I'm tired of retyping the step by step instructions every time Photobucket redoes their website. The option listed above is really the simplest one - and is very straight forward....

Another option is here (no account needed):

http://tinypic.com/


- Choose the last option after uploading the photo: Direct Link for Layouts

Copy and paste that with the IMG tags around your link.

You will have to put up with annoying ads on their page, though....
