[Guide] How to add/upload an image to a post.
« on: April 17, 2009, 03:27:19 pm »
Forum Url: http://Gablilg.smfforfree.com
To post an image from the internet:

1. Find a picture you want to post.

2. Right click on the picture.


3. At the very bottom of the options when you right click, you should see "Properties".

4. Click on that and a new little window opens.

5. Then, copy the URL. It should say "Address (URL)".


6. After you copy it, go into your original post that you want to add the picture to.

7. Paste the URL in the post. Example: http://www.smfsupport.com/support/themes/default/images/bbc/bold.gif

8. Finally, highlight the URL of the picture on you post and click the "Insert Image" button above the smilies. It should be right under "Italicized" and to the right of "Insert Flash".


Final Product:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://www.smfsupport.com/support/themes/default/images/bbc/bold.gif[/img]
*Note, if this doesnt work, make sure that
Code: [Select]
[img] [/img] is around the URL of the picture.*







How to Upload a Picture from your computer



1. Go to Tiny Pic

2. Click on "Browse...". (A page opens up with all your documents and pictures)

3. Pick the image you want to upload, and press "Open"

4. Click "Upload now!" and wait for it to load.

5. It will give you a whole bunch of codes. The one to use on the forum post is the one that has
Code: [Select]
[img] [/img] around it...

6. Copy that code and paste it in the post... and there ya go!

Try it yourself! Try uploading a picture. Here... if you want to try, Post this Image:

Your Welcome Everyone,

Thanks for the  Guide.    Be sure that it is okay with the person who is hosting the images that you use their urls though.    Not everyone appreciates their bandwidth being used ;)

Eh. Now a days you can put in codes so that the URL is uncopyable. Like, some images when you try to copy then say that the Owner doesn't allow it...

So yea... But I guess do what Siybl said, just in case...

I am trying to paste an image in a post.  I get to the part "Click on Properties" then highlight the URL, but I cannot copy it.   :-\  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks

If you are using Mozilla Firefox there is a selection when you right click that says "Copy Image Location" you can click that.

If you are in IE and can't copy, try using CTRL + C

Thanks Seldom Fail.  Unfortunately it didn't work (Control + C) .. I am in IE, btw.  When I highlight the URL, I basically cannot do anything else.  Maybe I could just copy the URL by hand and then type it into the post (very tedious).  I just can't understand why everyone else can do this simple thing, but I can't.  :'(

Thanks SF.  I've used those geeks before, or ones like them and found they were spot on.  Btw, after highlighting the URL, what do you do to copy it?  I can copy anything else but not that image URL.  I'll ask the geeks asap.  Many thanks.

hmm that's strange. you use IE 6 right?

I used that and could copy everything just fine.

I use Google Chrome so all I need to do is right click > copy image URL

After I highlight the URL, I right click and nothing happens.  :'(  I'm not sure what IE this is, maybe I should update?  Anyway, I put my question to the Geeks, so hopefully something will eventuate.  I'll let you know the results.  Thanks.
