Topic: pictures

how do I post a picture when I reply to a topic? I see that most everyone here has it mastered so i'm feeling a little left out and/or dumb asking this.

Never dumb to ask for help, quite the opposite really. big_smile

Do [*img*]your picture's address here[/*img*] without the asterix and you're on your way. smile

Re: pictures

Although this HAS NOTHING TO DO IN THE MORGUE SPACE THREAD so can any of you mod close it down please???

Thank you. Problem solved like LoudLon says so well. big_smile

Re: pictures

BAM.  You just got Punk-ucated.




Okay, that's supposed to be a portmanteau of "Punk" and "educated" but as I read it, it just sounds dirty...

Re: pictures

How about Punkucation?  Punkology.  Punkadelic.  PunkMonkey.  PunkPocalypse.  Sister Christian?  (bazinga!)
Monkey's on fire today, baby!

Re: pictures

I always load pics into Tinypic, and then get a code to paste them here.  Not that this is horrible, just takes a couple minutes.  Multiples are really irritating though.  Sometimes I have to watch a quick video to get a verification code. 

Are you saying there's a quicker way?  Just change the file name?  Please dumb it down a bit more for me to understand.

Re: pictures

@Ghosty-
If it's one of your pics, you can load it up to any of the image hosting websites (tinypic, flickr, photobucket) and use this-

[img]www.photobucket.com/ghostypic.jpg[/img]

If you're copying something off the 'net, use this-

[img]www.google.com/funkypic.jpg[/img]

When I post stuff off my website, I use-

[img]https://sites.google.com/site/vervemonkeyproject/Home/images/web-images/man-riding-shark.png[/img]

(.png is just another format like .jpg)

Does that help?

Re: pictures

Thanks Az.

Here is where I'm confused.  When I post a pic off the net, first I have to save it to my pics, then upload it to Tinypic, then post it.  So, seems what you're suggesting below is a quicker way.  I just don't get how that works.  Does the link for the pic go into a link somehow?

Just so you know, I don't expect anyone to try to explain this to me.  smile

The simpler way is not to download and re-upload it. Just copy the image URL and put it like you'd do with your tiny pict ones.

ALTHOUGHT lots of sites have a no image sharing code so it won't work. That's why I use only Tumblr, Pinterest or anything coming from Blogger or WordPress. Oh DeviantArt too works. So yes, it'd take you less time because you won't have to download them and re-upload. smile

Punkmare. Punkno, Punkror, Punkalization, Punkrash, Punkstroy, I'm on fire too azathoth. lol

Re: pictures

Posting a pic on the net doesn't require saving it; if you right click an image online you should get the option to copy the link's URL/location.  Post it here, bookended with the image tag, and voila -- the pic is posted.  Check it out:

All I did was right click on your avatar, select "open image," copied the URL and pasted it here with the image tag.  No saving involved.  In 'net slang that's called "hotlinking." smile

EDIT -- Punk beat me to it. lol

Ok, not sure what happened with the first one in this post.  Thanks for the help...wow, that saves time!  That's how you all throw them up so quick.  Yeah, I don't think some sites allow this right?  You have to go into some other site (like Tinypic) to create the link?  I think that's what Punk was saying? I'll need to check and see what Punk means with his last post.

AND HERE you go!!!

Welcome to easiness. lol

Re: pictures

Yes, there are some sites which prohibit hotlinking.  As for the link above not working, it's not an image link, it's a link to a topic.  Has to be an image link (which will end with .jpg, .gif, .bmp, etc).

Re: pictures

Yeah, not sure how I effed up the link.  Must have went to the wrong tab.  Thanks again.  smile
