      You will need to upload your photos to an outside picture host (photobucket, flickr, etc).

      Then, obtain the "url" for the image, and click the little picture box above the text input box.

      Paste the URL into the 'insert image' field, and away you go.


      You can make a test in our Testing Forum to make sure it works.

      To make it easier, and skip uploading to a photo site, I just upload them to my facebook/myspace which ever one you have. Then go to the pic, right click on it. One of the options that comes up should be a web specific address for that specific pic, highlight it and right click and copy it. I have an apple so it's a little different, mine says "copy image address". Anyway after you have "copied" the image address, paste it into your post. This is just an example:

      It will look something like this

      http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.jpg

      To make it appear as a picture, you need to add this to the front [img], and this to the back [/img]. So it would look like this.

      [img] http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.jpg [/img] (with no spaces)

      That's how you post pics.

      Careful .... sharing pictures from facebook gets funky depending on how you have your permissions settings.

      what site are you trying to post the pic from?

    11. 02-05-2011 12:34 PM #11
      I guess it's not possible to post from Picasa Web? I've tried it a few times but nothing seems to come into my test posts but URL addresses, not actual pictures.

      facebook is not designed as an outside picture host. Better to upload to a real host.

      Hey Folks -

      This is not the place to test post images. We have an entire testing forum for this purpose.
