Use the 'IMG' tag from photo-hosting sites such as Photobucket :)

Idiots guide (the sort I would need...)

1. Create an account on Photobucket.com.

2. Photobucket pop-up websites are occasionally a little dodgy - so don't click on them.

3. Once you're in Photobucket, click the "upload" option.

4. Drag the JPEG or other photos you have on your computer to the dotted area on the website where is says something like "drag and drop your files here"

5. When Photobucket has finished uploading your files, click on the "library" option on the site.

6. Click on the thumbnail of the picture you want to insert into your posts on this website.

7. Photobucket will show the image and on the right hand side, you'll see 4 text boxes - one labelled "direct." Click inside this text box and the word "copied" should flash up - the image link is now in your Windows cut buffer.

8. In the post you're writing for this site, you'll see some boxes at the top of where you're typing into - one says "Img"

9. Click on the "Img" button and you'll get the text string:

Code: Select all

[img][/img]
inserted into your text.

10. With the cursor between the two tags ([img.] CURSOR HERE [/img.]) either press CTRL-V or right click the mouse button and select "Paste". This will insert the Photobucket URL of the image you uploaded and is now being hosted on their site, into our site, between the "Img" tags.

For example, one of mine I've inserted elsewhere reads as follows - yours should look similar:

Code: Select all

[img]http://i1167.photobucket.com/albums/q636/Johnny216GSi/Inside%20the%20arch%20liner_zpsyxbjxi3o.jpg[/img]
11. You're done. You can repeat 1-10 above for as many different photos as you like.

12. You won't see the photo until you've submitted the post onto the site - although you can hit the "preview" button to see if it has worked (but remember you still have to hit the submit button before it can be seen by anyone else - otherwise you'll lose your work).

Made this a sticky thread as the last post is a good guide. Other image programs are available that do the same sort of thing.

I use Flickr but there are many many more.

Trying out the img-img button above to add pictures and pasting the flickr url between the two img tags.

But it's not working, only the url and not the picture is visible on preview and when posting.

I'm following the idiot's guide, I must be an exceptional idiot because clearly missing something?

Can you help? :unsure
