getting pictures to post
I don't get what I'm doing wrong...
I can help. If you put the link of the picture into the browser field at the top of the screen, does it open a page by itself with the picture?
Basically, you need the code you get if you right click on the picture and select properties. Copy the link with the jpg at the end (the whole thing) and when you try to post it make sure the whole link is between the codes.
I see you're having a bit of trouble Which image hosting site are you using? I admit I am really only familiar with photobucket but regardless though, you *should* be able to copy/paste the image code (denoted by ) and have it work.
If you can let me know which site you're using then we can try to figure out why it's not working for you.
Thank you....I just can't get it to work. I'm right clicking and click on properties. But then it gives me a http://im1.shutterfly.com, ect, and I'm putting it in-between the , but it just isn't working. Guess I"ll just give up for now. oh well.
I"m using shutterfly. I'm just not understanding. Seriously, we'll just blame it on pregnancy brain!
After you upload your image to shutterfly, does it give you a list of codes... ie ones for email/IM, direct link, HTML, and/or IMG code? (I know it does on photobucket so am assuming shutterfly should do the same)
What you need to copy is the IMG code. I don't think you should have to right click on anything.
ETA: I'm going to ask our other hosts to see if they know how to post from shutterfly
Okay, I went ahead and opened a photobucket album and it works!!!!
Now, I'm going to go and see about resizing it!!!!
Thank you sooooooooooo much for your help!
:woohoo: And great belly pic! Let us know if you need any more help!
I sure hope you figured it out because I have been trying for an hour to get an avater to work.
Well, whatever you did worked... because I can see it Welcome to the boards and if you need any help, just ask!!
