Get a free Photobucket account. Upload the image to it. Photobucket will provide 4 code formats. Copy the 3rd one down and paste it into your post.

[img src=”url”]

Use angle brackets instead of the square ones.

Remove the spaces after the "<" and before the ">"

You can NOT do it directly from your computer. It has to be hosted or on a web site. Then it is:

<img src="http://my.url/my.jpg">

For example <img src="http://www.gii.in/wallpapers/data/media/524/Catherine-Zeta-Jones-25.JPG">

Results in:

<u> underline </u>
<i> italics </i>
<b> bold </b>
<s> strikethrough </s>
<tt> typewriter text </tt>

<blink> blink </blink> Use blink sparingly. People HATE blink

<font size=1>Smallest FR font</font> Displays as:
Smallest FR font

<font size=7>Largest FR font<font> Displays as:
Largest FR font

Or

Step font size up or down with <big>bigger</big>

and <small>smaller</small>

"Hidden" text: <font color=white> White font </font>
Drag cursor over blank area to highlight to read...

First your photo must be hosted on a web site like Photobucket - it is free to open an account. You upload your photo to your account. Photobucket supplies the html code you will need to post to FR.

Since you have good answers already... I'll just snark. ;)

First.... you log in.

BTW, you are obligated to post your first jpeg here on this thread and ping everybody on the thread.

< img src=”” >

Oh, a couple of other points.
Post your jpeg between the quotation marks. And your jpeg must be a photo on the web, not your computer (open an account and post on Photobucket or Flicker, for example).

To put in angle brackets, use the HTML psuedo-variables &lt and &gt (use a semicolon after the &lt)

For example, <this is in angle brackets> is

&lt;this is in angle brackets&gt

CedarDave, some time back Jim Rob asked that people put the dimensions in so it will load faster. When you click on properties it will show the URL and the dimensions. The first number is the width the second is the height.

So this is how it should be.

< img width=635 src="http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e68/Karma29/patriots/coastguard.jpg"height=433 >

Now mindbender26 when you close the gap between < img and at the end > you get this.

If you’re feeling adventurous, here’s the FR HTML sandbox. A certain nice person on this thread, who shall remain nameless, showed it to me when I was a newbie.

In addition to all of the other advice, the syntax has to be EXACT. A missing “ or < or> will deem the link to be unreadable and, hence, won’t work. Spelling has to be EXACT, too.

In Firefox I put my width (or height) at the end of the URL after the " " and it works just fine to reduce the size of a picture and keep it in proportion; as far as loading goes, a smaller size certainly will help:

<img src="http://www.gii.in/wallpapers/data/media/524/Catherine-Zeta-Jones-25.JPG" width=500>

Dimensions: 1,024px × 768px (scaled to 500px × 375px)

Would it be too much to ask if you could post about 20-30 more pictures? And could you make it full body shots as well as head shots. And oh yeah, could you mix it up with blondes as well as redheads? And bathing suits, bikinis?

I have posted pictures for years on FR and the past few months the posts don’t work. I got a couple posted today. But it stopped working again and the pictures won’t post. The format I am using is as described by others, < img src=”url” > but I get nothing. (If I take out the spaces between the angle marks, nothing shows up) And the same has been happening when I have been trying to post links to articles.
