Posting pictures or graphics within a text message:
To do this, the picture or graphic must first be on a website open to public view at all times without requiring membership, signing in, etc.

See Picture Host Information for a list and description of some of those. For one-time posts without creating an album, see Alternate Quick Picture Hosts.

Here are the steps:
1. At the source, enlarge the picture

2. Right click on it and select "Properties"

3. Triple click on the URL, right click again and select Copy

4. Make note of the Pixel size, i.e., 600x300

5. Open a Notepad (Programs/Accessories on your computer) and paste that URL and also enter the pixel size.

6. In a New Topic or a Reply, click on the picture icon that looks like a little postcard. Paste that complete URL in the top box. If the pixels are larger than 640 pixels in width and 480 pixels in height, enter one of those numbers in the appropriate box below the URL.
example: picture Properties indicates Pixels of 767x536 so entering 640 in the Width box will automatically correct the height to 447. Any larger width will force side scrolling for 800x600 resolution viewers and your post may be edited or deleted on that basis.

7. Click Finish and then click on Preview in the tool bar (magnifying glass) to confirm it is as you want it to display.

Some photo hosts provide a series of URL's for either a thumbnail, click to enlarge thumbnail or the enlargement itself. If the one you use has this, look for the one that starts with "[img ]" and ends in "[/img ] without those spaces. Either upper/lower case will work.

Note: the maximum width of pictures posted again should not exceed 640 pixels. This includes the total of multiple pictures per line so please add them up. One thing that forces extra width on posting pictures is not posting them on a line by themselves - always hit your enter key before adding pictures after text so they end up on the next line by themselves.

For more information, see Screen resolution for pictures in text

incomplete URL himarks.
"http://fsjworld.tenmagazines.com/showownerpic.ten-u-3720-n-82707-pos-1"

a proper picture URL should have ".jpg" or ".gif" within it. Often with a long URL, it is necessary to triple click on it in Properties and paste it to a NotePad to make sure you get the whole thing.

Angel In White,

It appears that you have tried to link to a picture on your computer. That will not work. Pictures must be stored on publicly available host sites.

Here are two thread that discuss host sites.

grizzly arts,

the address for a picture will look similar to:

http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d90/tfix/AllieSleepingreduced.jpg

When the above URL is place between the img tags, one gets,



The picture has to be stored on an Internet site that hosts pictures and you must provide the URL to the picture.

See the links I posted above for information on hosting sites.
