How to add a picture to a posting

Postby Erik » 09 Nov 2007, 08:09

Hey all,

Here a short explanation on placing a picture in your posting.

In order to put a picture in your posting this picture has to be online somewhere. When you see a picture you would like you can put it into your message by using the [img] tag.

Simply put [img]in%20front%20of%20the%20link%20and[/img] behind it.

For example: When you go the SOC website and rightclick the picture on the startpage you can find the URL under "Properties". When you copy and paste this between the IMG tags like this (but then without the space before word "img") you get this result:

[ img]http://www.scottownersclub.org/Images/great_scott_1923.jpg[/img]

Below the result after removing the space:

Image

Instead of typing the IMG tag you can also use the IMG button above. Click on it, add the URL and click on it again.

If you would like to post your own picture it has to be on line somewhere. When you do not have webspace of your own you could use one of the online photo albums like http://www.photobucket.com (free). By the way, this site provides the URL to use in messageboards etc. below the picture, ready for use.

Some other picture sites
http://flickr.com
http://picasa.google.com
http://imageschack.us

Cheers,
Erik

For some reason I cannot edit my post in this section of the forum....

I wanted to add that when you add a picture to a posting it is best to keep the size down to 800x600 pixels max. That way the message board stays nice and clean and postings will not go "of the screen" in width.

If you only want to post a picture occasionally and do not have webspace, photobucket account etc. you could also mail the picture to info at flyingsquirrel.nl.
I will then put it online for you asap in the appropiate topic.

Cheers,
Erik
