How do you get pics to open in your thread???

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Dreamwave, Mar 7, 2003.

  1. Sorry. I know this has been asked before but I forgot
    which thread it was in. I'd like the pic to just show and not just be a link as explained in the FAQ section.

    P.S. One of you Moderators should put that in the FAQ section. Thanks.

  2. Just open the link up (after you've posted), copy the URL, then go edit your post and use the IMG button to insert the html code for the pic.
  3. Why thank you.:)
  4. Just want to see if this works:) Isn't there a more direct way though?

    Yeah, if the picture is hosted someplace online, you can just insert the url for the picture's location in the img tags.

    This is still difficult for a couple of people on the planet, including me, but how do I get the URL if I post a photo to my desktop and I want to upload it from there? I'm not talking "attach file" but the insertion of the image. I can't find the text to cut and paste under "script prompt," i.e., the text to be formatted.

    Max, you can't link to a file that is on your local machine. It has to be on the web somewhere.

    Many other boards don't have the attach file option so whilst being a minor hassle it's cool to upload stuff from a PC.
