How to put a photo in a message help needed.
Rather than give you a fish.....
I’ll show you how to fish.
Let's say you have an image called name_of_image.jpg.
The basic tag is <IMG SRC="http://wherever_the_image_is_hosted.com/name_of_image.jpg">
You might have to put more of a path in there, depending upon where the image is located on the website.
copy the link or url to the photo and paste this at the end
and this at the beginning
Put the URL of the photo where is says URL.
Keep the quotes and add < and > at the two end of the line.
Line break <br>
Paragraph break <p>
<font size=1>Smallest FR fon</font> Displays as:
Smallest FR font
<font size=7>Largest FR font<font> Displays as:
Largest FR font
Step font size up or down with <big>bigger</big>
"Hidden" text: <font color=white> White font </font>
Drag cursor over blank area to highlight to read...

Clarity is needed - you can't just snag a favorite picture from a desktop folder...it has to be hosted someplace to be transferrable to our posts. ~ ErnBatavia

Tip: control the size with "height=nnn" like so:
This: <img height= 200 src="http://www.notablebiographies.com/images/uewb_09_img0611.jpg">
While This: <img height= 100 src="http://www.notablebiographies.com/images/uewb_09_img0611.jpg">
Thanks to BykrBayb for a tip on using < instead of showing < with a space that needed to be removed and the blockquote command...
bookmarked for dinosaur :)
I use photobucket.com for my photos.
You have to log out first,. No, really, seriously, that’s the quirk of John’s software. Then, follow the instructions from the above posts!
bump to save
I never log out and I have no problem posting images.
Thank you for the question. It was a big help to me, too!
Yeah, I go clear back to CPM days.
Easiest way to do it in 2 steps:
1. Go set up a free Photobucket account and upload your pics to it. http://photobucket.com
2. Once you upload pics, in the photobucket album under the pics it will display the actual http links that you can simply copy and paste directly into the posting window at FR.
It’s absolutely the simplest way. Other FRiends have given you ways also to link to the pictures yourself.
Post a pic to this thread once you figure it out.
Let me know what you find out.
