I will be in DC this weekend attending the Support Our Troops Rally. I have a digital camera and a lap top. If someone can please tell me how to get a pic from my lap top to this site I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your help.
Simple. Open a FREE account at www.photobucket.com
Upload your photo's there, then use HTML to link to photobucket.com.
You have to have a host server somewhere.
You copy the pic to that site, then post the address here.
There are lots of hosting sites for doing that.
Or email them to me or somebody trustworthy and have them post them to any article you care to post.
Thanks. Will that post the actual pic or a link to the pic. Is it similiar to tiny pic.com? I really want to post the actual pic.
Two of the upload sites I use are imageshack and uploadyourimages.com.
This thread should give you all the info you need to learn how to post pics....
As long as we're helping out on this subject....
If photobucket is free to use, how do they make $$$...???
Some upload sites are pay to play.
Why would one pay when free is available?
That doesn't sound quite right.
Stop by Walter Reed Friday. I'll give you all the help you need.
I've used photobucket for a long time.
ping to self for later
"I've used photobucket for a long time."
That's good enough for me.
BUMP! Thanks to ALL who are attending THIS rally.
HA HA HA.
see you in DC! good luck with your pics.
I was going on what you meant, not what you said anyway:)
Thank you all for your help. I registered at photobucket and did a test pic in the sandbox and it WORKED! Now I had better figure out how to shrink it down some! LOL
Once you hit that post button it's permanent.
I've done worse. When my grand daughter used my computer to post at F.R. she would frequently not sign off when she left the computer. I'd come along thinking I was still signed in and make a reply to someone with grand daughter's decidedly female screen name. I even mentioned my wife once while posting from grand daughter's account.
Now that's confusion!
You upload the file (I know there is an upload file size limit; but cann't tell you what it is), and from there you do this
< img src="insert the full address of your web picture here" >
The quote marks MUST be around the full address of your website, whether it's a news story, or your pictures. Now, just don't use ANY spaces in the above instruction, and that should get you where you want to go.
I'll go out on a limb here and say that they somehow get some advertizing dollars. If enough people use their site to post family pictures, family members will visit the site and see some ads.
Does it work? Do they make any significant money? I would think they wouldn't be in business if there weren't some money in it. People don't pay for bandwidth out of goodwill.
I want to try that.
What did I do wrong?
Dang, it isn't working. I give up.
I won't be arriving until Sat. just before noon. Hope to see you!
You need a space between img and src
At the very end, a >
Then it'll work!
Hey, it works.
You forgot the right hand >
Thanks for the offer Graybeard. I think I have it figured out now but filed your name just in case! If a woman is spotted this weekend in DC with some cool equipment with barely a clue how to use it, chances are it's me! Don't be too shy to approach 'this woman' and offer your assistance. LOL.
Looking forward to meeting some of you. This is the first event of this sort I will be attending since joining FR and I am grateful to have found it.
May God Bless and protect our troops.
