It is not that difficult once you get the hang of it.

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.

First you need the picture’s internet address (URL). If it is only on your hardisk and not on the internet, you need to upload it first somewhere. Tinypic is a good site where you can upload pictures for free. Once you have uploaded a picture there, you can simply use the HTML code they provide, or write it yourself into your posting like this:

If the image’s URL is http://www.foo.com/bar.jpg, you can embed the image like

<img src="http://www.foo.com/bar.jpg">

Try this, but delete the space after the < and before the >.

<
img src=”type_the_web_address_of_the_image.com”
>

First you need the picture’s internet address (URL).

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.

Often you might get a idea to post an image, do a google image search that suits you best then post the url as it appears in the google search results bar as directed. You also might want to post an image related to a story you're posting. If you're using Firefox, you can get the image url to appear instantly by clicking the mouse on the left side.
Bear in mind often the images accompanied in a news article are forbidden being posted due to copyright restrictions when if spotted will be removed by the Moderator.

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...

The fastest way if via Tinypic: You can upload from your harddisk there, or “transload” from other websites! You simply paste the image URL into Tinypic, then paste their HTML code into your FR posting. No typing required at all.

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 ;-)

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 !!

You need to use < P > (Its a paragraph break.) If you want your words to appear above the pic you do this:

"Your Words"< p > < img src="picture url" >

for after you do this:

< img src="picture url" >< p >"Your Words"

Yes, insert a paragraph (<p>) before and after the image. BTW, if you want to show people HTML code, you can do it like this:

<code>&lt;img src="http://foo.com/bar.jpg"&gt;</code>

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.

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.

The easiest way I've found is to:

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: <

img src="http://www.marcofolio.net/images/stories/fun/imagedump/demotivational_posters/teamwork.jpg

Add the ">

End result:

How do you post a picture pertaining to topic in the comments section here at FR?
Well, it's a bit tricky. All that HTML Code stuff and all.

But his guy may know...

Sorry, couldn't help it.

What you need to do is visit the FR HTML Sandbox. HTML Sandbox You can learn and practice here.
