Default -=FAQ=- Images and Avatars, How, Where and Why -=FAQ=-

Please review our Image Posting Rules before attaching or embedding pictures in your posts:
IMAGE POSTING RULES (READ BEFORE YOU POST!)

If you don't have a hosting service or you want the pictures to stay with the thread for a while (especially for equipment problem posts) and need to know how to do it:
Tutorial: How to attach photos to a post

If you want to put up a gallery outside of POTN, and maybe link to your photos from here:
Tutorial: Where to host my photos?

You'd like one of those really cool avatars, but can't get the picture right (this also tells you how to resize images for regular posting):
Tutorial: Creating An Avatar in Photoshop & Paint Shop Pro

Your picture's too big for POTN (remember, it can't be over 1024 pixels in any dimension) but you want to show it off here anyway;
Tutorial: Thumbnails with link to external image (and inline attachments)

You have a bare-bones computer and need to edit the photo;

Nutshell version of how to post an image, courtesy of Frank (PhotosGuy)

2/ View the 'full size" pic. If there's a (+) in your mouse pointer, click the image again so it's at full size. (Max 800 pixels on either side.)

3/ Rt-click on it & select "Copy Image Location. Come back to your thread, click on the yellow icon at the top of the "Post New Thread" box & paste the link into the dialog box. You'll get something like this:
[IMG]image URL[/IMG]

If you're linking to more than one image, hit once to put some space between the images:
[IMG]image URL 1[/IMG]

[IMG]image URL 2[/IMG]

Thats it.

THANKS for all the great responses!! That works for the main photo on an e-bay auction (the gallery pic). What I want to do is put photo's in the area where I write my description, and using [IMG]image URL[/IMG] will NOT work in that area, this is what a Photobucket photo link looks like:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

How can I make the post a photo for Zenfolio?? The link is below, but will not work in the description area.

Default Re: Calindy HTML

Code for embedding your photo in POTN's posts:

[img]http://debmann.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p523082240-3.jpg[/img]



If you need HTML code to display the image in other site that allows HTML code:
The code below will display your image
HTML Code:
<img src="http://debmann.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p523082240-3.jpg"
 border="0" alt="debmann's photo, zenfolio.com">
The code bellow is equivalent to your example of photobucket.com and will display your image as a link to your gallery in zenfolio.com
(the alt text can be replaced by alt=)
HTML Code:
<a href="http://debmann.zenfolio.com/" target="_blank">
 <img src="http://debmann.zenfolio.com/img/v3/p523082240-3.jpg"
  border="0" alt="debmann's gallery, zenfolio.com"></a>
I hope this will answer your question

1. Go to your pBase image, pick the size you want and copy the URL.




2. On POTN, open a message window and click on the Insert Image icon.




3. That will open a box where you paste what you copied on pBase.





4. After you paste in the URL, type a period and jpg ( .jpg).
