Need help in posting some pics I took today?
Thanks! - Cr@p, my screen broke
Are they at a web address?
Do you want them posted here?
There are others.
I have some pics on my computer I want to use in a new post about border security
Write the address on the envelope, put the pictures inside, put a stamp on it, and put it in a mailbox.
You Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar!
If you open the pictures, can you right click on them and “copy image URL”?
Facebook does the job also
Whole thread on it as above. The problem is you can't post exact html code and have it show up as text unless you disguise it as a .jpg which is more than you want to know.
You need to know the URL of the picture to do this. You can see the picture's URL when you put your cursor on the picture and right click the mouse. You see a small box with "properties" at the bottom. Left click on "properties" and you get a dialog box with the image URL and dimensions. It says Address: next to the URL, with (URL) underneath. Copy the URL and paste it after your img src= tag. Make sure you get all of the URL for the picture. There isn't a lot of space for the URL and sometimes they are very long. The image Size and Dimensions are beneath the URL. Free Republic allocates memory for each image, and if it doesn't know the dimensions of the image, it will allocate more memory than needed. It tells you the width, then the height of the picture.
This is called a hotlink. The picture is actually on another computer, but we see it here. This causes the other computer to use it's memory and machinery to provide the image. Some sites prevent it, or object to it. You can't hotlink an image from any of Yahoo's GeoCities pages, for example. Yahoo prevents it.
Do Not Cut And Paste List.
Some websites have forbidden us to copy and paste their material, including images. There have been lawsuits over this. The software will mostly prevent you from using the material that has been blocked, but not always. There are also some image sources that are not allowed on the list. Please don't use them. Lawsuits suck.
Try copying and pasting the above into your browser.
