Thanks in advance for the help..
First of all you need to register (don't worry its free) with a site that stores you pics and then allows you to copy and paste the HTML codes provided and imbed it into whatever posting you want.
There are many out there and a search will bring them up.
I like FLIKR and have been using them for years.
You simply sign up like you would for email
Once you have an account, you open the section which instructs you to upload you first pic and and then you proceed to do so (you can usually upload 6 or 7 pics at a time) and you can also make these private or avaible for public viewing.
Then once you have done that, you click the pic and follow the instructions (usually by clicking the share button) which brings up the HTML code and choose the different sizes; copy it and then paste it in you posting.
You can then adjust the size of your pic by changing the "width" and "height" numbers you will see in the code, either increasing it to make it larger and vice versa.
Hope this helps.
If the image’s URL is
http://www.foo.com/bar.jpg, you can embed the image like
Formatting Messages with Outlook Express (HTML Bootcamp)
Try this, but delete the space after the < and before the >.
This is the only photo FR will allow me to post
56newblog, in order to get an image's internet address, try right-clicking on it and, if you're using Mozilla FireFox, look for the option: "Copy Image Location". If you're using MS Internet Explorer, right click and look for Properties. Click Properties and highlight, copy and paste "Address (URL)" to a posting here.
Those tags are for a forum that uses BB tags like vBulletin. Those do not work here. At all.
FR uses straight-up HTML. Instead of [IMG], use the HTML tag like in post #3.
You can go to just about any HTML primer on the Internet, and most of what you learn there will work on FR.
Yes....I know I can type this stuff in myself, but it would be nice if I could find a way to cut & paste more quickly...
An additional benefit is that the pictures stay at Tinypic. If you link to a random website, they might take the image away, or worse, replace it with a g@y pr0n picture or something ;-)
Hisssssssss. Images like that are forbidden on FR.(just kidding)
I believe you posted the wrong picture. The image you posted is the Assistant Director of the Harvard Democrats for the Re-Election of Obama Debating Team.
Yes....I used TinyPic for Post 12. The only problem is that I can’t write above or below the picture, it always shows up either to the left or to the right, as in Post 12...???
In Firefox, you can highlight the picture, right click, and choose “Copy Image Location”. Type your < img src=” (without the space between the left bracket and img), then hit ctrl-c to paste the image URL. Finish with “>, and post.
Correction - no need to highlight. Just point at the pic and right click.
Exactly...but what I was hoping to do was avoid having to type the < img src= stuff. But I guess there’s no getting around it. But mega-Thanks !!
"Your Words"< p > < img src="picture url" >
for after you do this:
< img src="picture url" >< p >"Your Words"
<p>) before and after the image. BTW, if you want to show people HTML code, you can do it like this:
Happy now !!!
Another way to approach it is to highlight a pic, right click, choose “View Selection Source” (again, this is Firefox, not sure of choices in other browsers), then adjust the selection as needed/if needed to get the pic.
Well, if you’re only allowed one...
Secret formula. Don't tell anyone, OK?
FYI, 56newblog has posted 4 threads since April and hasn’t posted a single reply. How can someone ask a question, get so many helpful, time-consuming responses and not even reply with a simple thank you. Strange world we live in.
Excellent job of posting. What was this thread about again?
1. Locate the pic I'm looking for, right click on it, and copy the properties link.
2. Type in the "img src=", then add my quotation marks.
Paste the link, and add the quotation marks and close the string with an ">"
For example: <
Add the ">
