Can't seem to get photos in.

Try as i might, I can't seem to get my photos on. I think I might have to join 'Photo Bucket' and transport my photos to this site? I hate to go thur all this just to put photos on this message board. I think i am going to give up for now. Why can't someone make it simple for us? I guess I'm too dum. I figured out how to copy and paste all my photos into a Excel Spreedsheet and I keep it for my records. Added to each photo is all the info on each supject.

Yes, join PB and put your pictures there. Then get the HTML code (the 'a href...' code) of the picture and put it in a message here. It is simple once you've done it a few times.

You can also search Garden Web for more instructions if you like - look for 'how to post pictures'.

RE: Can't seem to get photos in.

Don't feel bad I have had problems posting pictures as well. I even got help and they couldn't do it either.

All I can say is that the help you got must not have been skilled enough - I and others can post photos with no problem. Follow the directions above and Bob's your uncle.

RE: Posting photos here at GW

Hi Norma,

On another thread here, I've just left the basic instructions for posting pix via Photobucket. I taught myself to do it, takes some reading, time, patience & sometimes multiple attempts, but it IS doable.

Here's what I wrote on the other thread.

Hi Stush,

The way to post your pix is to use a photohosting site & then upload from there to here.

I use Photobucket (free) so I can speak about that. The short version, put your pix there & then copy & paste into here the THIRD Line of code which will appear under the pic at Photobucket into a message you've started here.

At first it will look like Gibberish, but the Image should be visible when you hit 'Preview'. If not, try again, it might take a couple of tries to get it.

RE: Can't seem to get photos in.

Thanks all, I have some computer problems. I think that is my biggest problem. As soon I get the bugs out I will get going.
