    Photos in topics? Huh?

    I have seen a lot of photos added to many threads and as of yet have no idea how it is done. I realize I can't upload them straight from my computer, but I have no idea how one can link them as the picture icon requests if one does not have his own website. Does everyone here that posts pictures have their own websites or what am I missing?

    Hi Rich, The pictures just have to be on a webpage somewhere, then you copy an IMG code to paste into your post here. I just use one of the photo
    hosting websites to store my pictures. John

    Hi Rich,

    Yes, I have a web page where I keep all my files for uploading here in posts.

    You can see examples of how to use the codes here:

    Scroll down to IMG.

    Yep, Rich - I've had a Tripod account for years, and one of my uses for it is to store images which I can hot-link to wherever I want online.

    You don't need to know any code to get them in a post though. You just get the URL from copying what's in your browser while the picture is open, ie: "http://myname.host.com/name-of-picture.jpg" and when you're writing a post here in the Forum, click on the "Insert Image" photo icon in the menu right above your text, and paste that URL into the pop-up that come up.

    I generally use the centering menu command so the picture shows up centered in my post.

    I use www.tinypic.com

    You upload your pic to there. It gives you the code and url to copy/paste into your email, website, etc.
