Help! How do I post a picture?
« on: December 14, 2009, 04:05:26 PM »
Ok.  Have jpeg picture.  Must upload, or the toy does not exist.

Pressed the "Insert Image" button.  Go the "img" "/img" (in brackets).  Coppied and placed the physical path for the jpg file, and no go!

If you use Photobucket, it might be easier to cut-n-paste the link from Photobucket to your thread.

No photobucket..

Tried from Paint, no go.  Tried as a BMP file, no go.  Tried as a JPG file, no go.

THere must be a simple way that I can identify a file and bring it in!  Argh!

Hi John,
I guess you tried to insert a pic which is stored on your computer.

You have to upload it first to a webspace. As Tim said for examble Photobucket

Hey John,

You can't actually upload the picture off your computer to this board.  The board uses web addresses to pull up the picture.  So, you can't reference the hard drive on your computer.  There's no way for a web browser to come look on your C: drive and follow your file path.  You have to have it in a location that the web browser can access.  Basically the address of it needs to be something like: "www.yourwebserver.com/images/yourpicturefile.jpg."  

Insert the name of where your picture is hosted and then the file path to fine it with the name of the image at the end. The C: drive of your computer is not a published address (and you don't want it to be), so no one can see the pictures you have stored there.

Right click on my icon and choose properties from the bottom of the menu that appears, and you'll see where my picture is stored.  I do all the web stuff for my wife, so I just stuck it in with her web site.  Anyone on the web can get to it because it is a "published" (web accessable) address.  

Like others suggested.  Go to http://www.photobucket.com/ join up - it's free, and upload your pictures there (they actually store a copy of your picture).  Now it's in a web accessible location.  They make it real easy for you to post pictures.  Under your picture they give you the code to  put in between the img tags.  Just copy and paste that code in between the img tags and your "Golden"...(Sorry for the Eden pun...couldn't resist).

Once you do it, you'll wonder why you thought it was so difficult.

Hope this helps,
   Dan
