I don't have a photo hosting site, I was trying to paste a picture from 'my pictures' in 'my documents' folder.
I was just trying to review the newbie info on this but was unable to find it.

That would be in the Forum Decorum & Handbook (FAQ) thread that I referred you to earlier.  Here's another link to it: :clickhere: 

While you can upload an image here, it's not a good way to include your photos here.  As you'll read in the FAQ thread, when you upload, you're limited in the number of photos you can include in a post, all of the images will be at the end of your post, instead of where you'd like them in your text, the size of images is limited, and they're subject to deletion in periodic board clean-ups (if one occurs just after you post, your image may not be up for more than minutes! :o).  If you've posted more than 1 image w/ a post (because you made the post during the swap contest), the 2nd & 3rd photos will be deleted when the maximum goes back down to one after the swap contest.  We strongly encourage you to direct link (method #2 in the FAQ thread) to show us your work!

HTH, :) :)

Thank-you Lisa and SewRusty,
I knew I read something about this before I got to the sandbox, but didn't manage to absorb all the info and kinda got it backwards.

Thank-you Lisa for the link, sorry I don't see where you posted it before,  I'll read up on this more tomorrow.
A good first day!

I am totally confused about what to do on Flickr now. The share this is no longer available to me nor is there a BBcode. Help!

Thanks, Susan

Hi Susan!

Post a link to one of your pictures on Flickr.  Just grab the page url from the address bar in your browser and post it here.  Then I'll see what I can do!

Ah.  Flickr just made another change.  They got rid of the "share this" button.  Now you need to click the little "down arrow" (to the right of "Favorite, Actions" and the e-mail, facebook & twitter icons), then choose "grab the HTML/BBCode" and proceed as before.

I'm off to edit my directions in the FAQ... ::) :)

Joy, you are selecting the thumbnail views of your photos on your photosite. Go to the site and select a larger view to import here. In your photo's URL, when you see "thumb" or "thu.jpg", that usually means you have the URL of the thumbnail and not the full sized photo.

Hi Joy!

The procedure you used (right-click, etc. from our instruction page) is exactly right for images from most of the web.  And what Kathryn suggested will work, however it looks as though Webshots (like another photo hosting site) wants you to link back to your photo on their site, so is providing the code you need here. :)  Here's how to get it:

1.  When you're on your image's page, click on the icon that looks like a computer screen with a blue band at the top (if you put your cursor on it, it will say "copy this code to post this photo in a forum"), which will take you to another page that says "post this photo" and shows a window with code info.

2.  On that page, the default is the thumbnail size you posted.  At the top of the window are other choices, labeled in pixel size.  Clicking another size choice changes the code, but not the picture you see.  To check and see if it's the size you want, click the aqua-colored "preview this size" link which will pop-up a window showing the size.  If not, close the window and repeat with a different size choice.

3.  When you have the size you want, copy the code in the window labeled "post in a forum", bring the code back here and paste it in your reply window where you want it without using any of the buttons above the reply window.  That's it!

Give it a try! :pinkpom:

Mary, instead of highlighting your link and clicking on the world icon, click on the picture icon instead:



Also, remove the last / after .jpg in your URL so that it looks like this:

Code: [Select]
[img]http://ny-image0.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.223842576.jpg[/img]
Then it will work.

Gosh, Kathryn, that was fast!  Thanks so much for your help.

You will probably see a bit more of me today, muddling around.  I'm taking a personal day today, and trying to get caught up on some sewing stuff.

Jane, you are posting a thumbnail photo from Flickr. 

1. Go back to Flickr
2. Double click on that thumbnail to open up the photo size
3. In the right side of the menu box above that photo, you will see a downward - pointing arrow. Click it.
4. Select the "BB Code" radio button at the bottom of that window. When you do that, the code you need to post the photo here automatically appears in the window. Click in that window and the code will be highlighted. Copy that code and come back here and paste it into your post. When you then click "post" or "preview", the photo will appear.

Give it a try! 

HTH,
Kathryn

Zalin, try following the instructions I wrote for Jane. If you can't  get the BB code that way, then here's another way: to post a photo from Flickr

1. Click on the thumbnail photo in your photostream page on Flickr
2. Above the photo that opens, click "Actions"
3. Select "view all sizes"
4. Select the "medium" size
5. Right-click on the resulting photo
6. From the drop-down menu box, select "Properties"
7. In the small window that opens, highlight. The URL that appears in the middle of that box. Copy it.
8. Come back here and paste it into your post. Highlight it and click on the little picture icon that is above the message box where you are writing your post.
9. When  you click "Post" or "Preview", the photo will appear.

HTH,
Kathryn
