Skip to comments.Question: How does one make a picture viewable on free republic?

I have a tech question: how does one make a jpeg picture link viewable as a picture on free republic? For example, if I want to show this jpeg photo of President Reagan and Mrs. Thatcher:
How can I show the photo itself and not just the link?
Many thanks in advance to whoever can show me how to do this.

(img src= “image url”) replace these ( ) with these <>. Dont forget the quotes around the url.

Yay!! First time to post a pic on FR :)
What a great 1st pic to post! Thanks, RF!
Then you're ready to begin putting up pictures.
JK. It's very simple. Take a gander at W3Schools - Images. Store your image at a site like TinyPic, grab the URL, and paste it into the "img" code.
There is a distinction as to whether the image is located on your computer or somewhere on the net.
Go to photobucket.com (there are other free storage sites)
Sign up, usual username and password deal.
Click on “upload”. If the pix is on your computer, hit “browse” and select the image you wish to upload. Progress bar shows up and completes.
Select “home” or “go to my album”.
Once you see the uploaded image, click on it. On the right side of the screen will be four boxes. Those boxes have the various html prefixes necessary for posting said image on different sites. Some sites (most bulletin boards and fora) use [img]-————[/img] FR uses the code that begins <a=href-——————
Click on that one. The full URL, surrounded by the appropriate html tags, will be copied to your clipboard (on a PC) just by clicking on it.
Now in your FR “posting” sequence, paste (eg; ctrl-V) the clipboard contents into your post. Hit preview to see if it all works. If it does, post away.
I like to add a few blank returns BEFORE and AFTER the pix so it is not shoved all the way to the bottom of your post.
Any time you use *ANY* html code posting on FR, you have to specify line breaks/paragraphs manually. If you have a three sentence intro to your pix you’ll have to give line-feed or paragraph or carriage return codes (any of which will work) or all the text will run together.
Also if the picture is really big you can reduce the demensions or really small add equally. The first number is the width and the second is the height.
< img width407 src="put jpg here"height=393>
Confucius Say.....You have good suggestion; take class on html and related matter. Little by little, make use of this new ‘Forbiden Knowledge’.
Now that can’t be faked. I actually saw him do that. More than once.
Line break <br>
Paragraph break <p>
<font size=1>Smallest FR font</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...

Posting an image:
<img src="[web server location]">
You can't just snag a favorite picture from a desktop folder...it has to be hosted someplace on line to be posted here.
Best bet is to save the image to an image hosting service, I use Photobucket. In Firefox right click and select "Copy image location", in Safari right click and select "Open image in new tab" and copy the address in the address bar. Other browsers have similar tricks.
This: <img src="http://www.notablebiographies.com/images/uewb_09_img0611.jpg">
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">
< sigh > Amen to that.
Thank you. Yes, don’t forget the quotes!
...if you only use height OR width the image scales without distortion.
Now have fun.
For the photo as you posted it here, dimensions are listed as 700 x 800 pixels.
Dividing those numbers in half will produce the same image but half as wide and half as tall.
So do what you did to post the image. To re-size, following the first equals sign = , the url of the image MUST be bracketed by quotation marks " " , as do the pixel numbers following their own = sign(s) which specifies what dimension. After the " close quotation mark skip a space if desired, then if half width & height of the image your are sourcing from is wanted, in this instance put height="400" width="350" followed by the closing > bracket command, leaving that part of the equation appearing something as
So give it a try? If more folks are going to post images, we all may as well know how to make them a bit smaller. Remember to use the review function. Switching the dimensions around can give yield some strangeness. Done on purpose for effect is another trick...
Dividing the width/height by 4, yields
loads faster, making it easier on smart-phone users and remote location dial-up dinosaurs. So if the image not needed to be big to maintain effect, something smaller is many times better. In the Thatcher/Reagan photo, the fuller size brings some detail and effect...so I'm not complaining, just talking about images in general.
One thing I've noticed is that in "properties" the width seems to be given before the height...but when resizing it's somehow either traditional (or maybe necessary?) to first enter height="", then width="">.
Notice too, that a url following the opening command sequence bracket < img src= need not be put within quotation marks to simply bring the image in the same size as is listed at the original location. But we've been told that it loads faster if we do add the quotation marks, even if not resizing, which is good to know.
Just to get < img src= to appear (and not get lost as an opened-but-not-finished-and-closed > command, I had to skip a space between the opening command bracket < and that which followed.
There is another way to code, bringing what is apparently keystroke results as substitionary images themselves, resulting in a coder being able to present a replica of the code without needing skip a space at crucial junctures to invalidate the html coding execution itself (thus leaving the apparant keystrokes to appear rather than not). But I'm not ambitious enough to go look up the tables, and am years away from original bookmarks for that stuff. It can take some digging, using the just right search terms to find the stuff in the first place, but it's out there...simulated code which does not execute as html command, can be done...
Thanks! A very straightforward piece of instruction..
Ampersand lt semicolon will give you a <
Strangely enough it only works with a lower case LT...
Oh wait, that’s a raccoon!
reaction time is a factor
whats a tortoise?
The high point of America. But, as likely always happens, the good people (the vast majority) are unable to comprehend, and there accept, just how evil their opponents are.
(consider the following, as seen from the perspective of a German Jew)
“Did us Jews in Germany really think they we be gassed? No, why should we have? It had never happened before (and no, Stalin doesn’t count, as no one knew about it, and it was regarding a backwards enemy, Russia). Us Germans were the most civilized, advanced society, in the world, with no history of mass killings.”
“Then Hitler comes along. Sure he says mean things, but the real problem this Nazi bunch had was that us Jews were still making money, while other Germans suffered greatly. So it was understandable that that this Hitler guy would try to equalize things somewhat, and we supported that goal. We thought he said things that were a bit strong, but he was trying to motivate the people and we all needed motivation back then. We knew he never really meant it, not in Germany.”
“Yes, we did wonder what happened to our relatives after they got on the trains. They were told they were going to better places, and as life became rough for us, we fought each other for those opportunities. But when we didn’t hear back from our relatives, we worried a bit. When we heard rumors of trains going to strange factories with acrid smoke coming out, and leaving empty, we were confused. But we knew nothing terrible could happen, here, in Germany. So we didn’t worry.”
If people wonder why many of us support the Second Amendment, what you see above is exactly why.
The tortoise is represented in delays on the bottom of the chart. Notice the coy smile.
