I tried to put up a photo but don't seem to be able to make it work.

This is what I have  - what am I not doing?


I see your picture!  Looks good to me.  You won't see it when you put the code in, until you hit the "Preview" or "Post" button.  I always preview before I post, so I can see if I have what I want!

I'm so glad you've decided to post and show us your jackets! :)

Well that doesn't tell you much, does it?

I clicked on the image icon and got <img> </img> and put the URL in between those two but nothing shows up.

The URL is
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aJyzMgdwax8/TVGU8z7tixI/AAAAAAAABRo/6z3zYa6BLSE/s320/coat%2B%

Thanks for your help in advance.

Ok, I think I've got it.  The url you've posted isn't the whole url for your image (which ends in .jpg).  It looks like it got cut off...

Here's the whole image url (which I got from your blog):
Code: [Select]
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aJyzMgdwax8/TVGU8z7tixI/AAAAAAAABRo/6z3zYa6BLSE/s320/coat%2B%25232%2B003.jpg
Yours lost "25232%2B003.jpg" from the end.  Sounds like it may be a mechanical problem in copying the url.  I'm guessing, but if you're right-clicking then choosing "properties" and copying from the "URL (address) link in IE, you need to make sure that you highlight the entire address before you copy.  With a long address, the only way t o make sure you have it all is to put your cursor on the address, then hold down the Ctrl key and hit the "A" key.  That will give you the whole URL.

When you get the whole image url, put it between the img tags like so:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_aJyzMgdwax8/TVGU8z7tixI/AAAAAAAABRo/6z3zYa6BLSE/s320/coat%2B%25232%2B003.jpg[/img] which will get you:


Please give it another try!  :pinkpom:

It does!

If you like, you could change it to a clickable words link like this:

Very cool recumbent tandem! :)

Hi SunnyElle!  You've almost got it. :)  You just need to do less! ;) ;D

You've added "http://" to the front of the code you got from Flickr and then put img tags aroung the entire thing.  Flickr includes all of the tags and code you need. so if you delete that, You'll have this:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewsunny/5395687527/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5133/5395687527_97cd73573d.jpg[/img][/url]
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewsunny/5395687527/]More quilting on the Buggy Baby Quilt[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/sewsunny/]SewVintage[/url], on Flickr

which will get you this:

More quilting on the Buggy Baby Quilt by SewVintage, on Flickr

So get the code from Flickr and paste it here.  Don't add anything else or use the buttons above the edit window to add any tags.  You don't need them! ;) ;D

Please give it another try. :pinkpom:

Hi Karen, I see that you have clickable words down (linking either to a website or a picture). :applause2:  Want to try clickable pictures now?  :)  Not so much different than what you've been doing!  And just like a clickable word, it can link to either a web page or another picture! ;) ;D

You can build on what you've done. As you know, here's the format for a clickable word:
Code: [Select]
[url=URL YOU'RE LINKING TO]CLICKABLE WORD[/url]
A clickable picture can be build off of the same format.  You'll replace the "CLICKABLE WORD" with the code  needed to present an image in your post.  For a picture that isn't clickable, the format is as follows:
Code: [Select]
[img]URL FOR THE IMAGE[/img]You get the img tags from the 2nd button in the 2nd row over the editing window--if you highlight your URL FOR THE IMAGE and then click the button, they'll be properly placed.
Remembering that the URL FOR THE IMAGE must always end in ".jpg" or ".gif" will help make sure that you've got the right url for the picture--instead of the page that the picture is on.

So the final step is to replace the CLICKABLE WORD in the format you've been using with the code needed for your picture.  When you do that, you'll get this:
Code: [Select]
[url=URL YOU'RE LINKING TO][img]URL FOR THE IMAGE[/img][/url]
If I use the first picture in your blog and link it to the same larger image you linked the word "photo" to, I get this :


BTW, for the images you have hosted on blogspot you can adjust the size by changing the number in the part of the code that reads "/s200/" for the image above.  Here's the same photo, with that number changed to 300, 400 & 500.  Each of these is linked to the blog you linked the word "blog" to ;) ;D



Very handing coding by blogspot to allow you to adjust your image sizes so easily!

Please give pictures as links a try ! (and let me know if you have questions.)  :pinkpom: :pinkpom:

Hi Karen,

You asked me to go ahead and post w/ respect to what went wrong w/ your earlier post, so here you go!  First, your post, so you don't have to scroll so far back & forth: :)
ok, here goes

]

obviously not.  will go back and read this again  :P

Three separate things went wrong, :o :( but they're all easy fixes!  :)   Here's what your code looks like:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.acorgihouse.blogspot.com]][img]http://www.blogger.com/profile/11570407072060958620/[/img][/url]
1.  You misspelled your blog's url  :o as "acorgihouse" (instead of "corgihouse"), so that when the software tried to resolve the url, it couldn't.

2.  In choosing the url for the picture to be posted (your corgi from your blog's profile page?) you used the url for the page your profile is on, instead of the separate url for the picture on that page.  :(  It happens a lot, but is easy to fix.  You don't want the url that's in your browser's address bar.  Instead, you want the url for the picture.  In IE, you'd put your cursor on the picture, right click, choose properties, then copy the "URL (address)" from the pop-up window.  In Chrome, you right click and choose "copy image url." I don't recall Firefox or Safari, but it will be similar.  If you have a problem w/ this, tell me which browser you're using and I'll try to help.  You'll know you have the right one when the url you get ends in ".jpg" or ".gif"

3.  This one is trivial.  It just produces an extra "]" which you don't need.  Your code shows two square brackets after the target url (your blog address).  The first one ends the ending url tag.  The 2nd one is just extra and can be deleted. 

If I do all three of those things, the code looks like this:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.corgihouse.blogspot.com][img]http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_BCvbvJSpf7A/R4FlM1VbP7I/AAAAAAAAAAM/9rT1KnDKOqs/S269/May06_06.JPG[/img][/url]which yields this:



HTH, :)
