How to post pictures

If you store your pics at Photobucket, you can just copy the middle line under the picture that begins with the

Then come to where you are posting (here) and paste that code. When you preview your post, the picture will show up.


This is how I learned. It is taken from a thread at Garden Junk.

"How to post pics directly into thread without learning the code.

The absolute easiest and fastest way to post pics in a thread where you don't need to figure out the codes (you can learn them later) is to store your photos free at They post the code under every picture so you would just copy and paste this code into the message. The code to copy starts with

The one thing you should also do is change the pic size so it is not too big. Photobucket gives you an edit button above every pic and your final pic should be around 100k or less. I just hit the REDUCE BY 50% button and that usually does it for me.

To post by typing the HTML code yourself:

...First you must post your pictures in an online album like,, etc.

Then you use the code

with the only space being between "img" and "src" and no quotation marks.

To get the URLofpicture go to your album picture and right click on the full size picture. Left click on properties and copy the ENTIRE URL address from that window. Then go to the above code and take out the words URLofpicture and paste in what you copied. You can practise posting at the test forum test forum

A couple of hints:

Make sure you get the entire URL...some can be quite long and snapfish you need to get all 3 lines so pull your cursor past the first two so that you can copy the hidden 3rd line. Snapfish's URL's usually end in the letters si.

Make sure you type the code correctly..a lot of people mix up src and type scr and it will not work!"


Good luck, and I am hoping to see lots of pictures here this new year.

Your suggestion not to make the pictures too big is a good one. If a picture is too wide (in pixels), it makes the entire message thread too wide, and everyone has to use a horizontal scroll bar repeatedly just to read the messages.

I think you would have to download it to your computer, then store it somewhere. I don't think you can just post it from a CD.

Might ask at the computer forum.
