Photos Here or Gallery

I'm curious... there doesn't seem to be a lot of traffic at the gallery - is it OK to post photos here instead? (With a little bit of discussion - lol.) Or, should photos be strictly for the gallery? Thanks.

What some people do is post the picture in the gallery with a short message and then post a message here (with their question) saying that the picture is in the gallery.

I don't think you can post a picture here except if you are just posting a link to a picture stored on photobucket or something like that.

That is right. If you don't have access to photobucket or something like that you can then use the gallery. Most people want a direct link to a photo or the actual photo itself in the posting. They don't want to have to go over to the gallery to see a photo. I doubt if many people would do that.

In case you don't know how to include a photo:

Say the photo is at http://www.me.net/~me/images/myphoto.jpg

the by using the following script without the space betwee the < sign and 'img', the following script would include that photo:

< img src="http://www.me.net/~me/images/myphoto.jpg">

Please reduce the size of any photos to less than 1000 wide by 800 high. That is all that will fit on most screens.

Thank you esh, and Rhodyman, for the information, and the instructions. I opened up a photobucket account, so Ill just post my photos directly from there, whenever I have questions. Very much appreciated.
