  • Help an idiot

    I have a picture stored in my macbook's IPhoto file that I want to put up here in the newbie section.

    A new guy is going to the Chiefs game dress up, and if it's cold enough, Mugo's gonna go also. He's gonna need to see what Mugo looks like if we are gonna connect.

    Can I just link it somehow? Maybe there's a place to host it that I can link to? I just never figured this stuff out. it's easy to put stuff INTO IPhoto, but it takes brains to share them. Something I lack.

    How do people just put pics into posts? This might be just way too complicated for me, lol.

    A way to show a pic in a link would be good enough.

    Yeah, yeah, I'll hit you up for the help.


    Edit, Ya know, somewhere in here is a really cool pic of Mugo in a tropical setting. Extra credit for anyone who can find that one....

    If you have the image file on your computer, go to imageshack.us or photobucket.com and either site you can host your picture on. Then copy the image location and put it in image tags here.

    You might need to make an account for either one if you want a direct link though. Both are free, so it isn't too much of a hassle.

                It works, but if you put the IMG tags instead of the url ones, it will just show the pic.

                      When you post the link to the image put [=IMG]Image link here[/IMG=], except remove the = signs. It also is the little button on the control bar above that looks like two mountains and a stamp.

                      Quote my post and it should look like this:

                        I still have to link it though, right?

                        I changed it on the teeth pic, but I don't see any difference. I'll try another one.

                        I really appreciate this guys!

                          OK, clearly I am not getting this.

                          I am cutting the addy, pasting it here, and adding these [IMG] things.

                          Doesn't seem any different to me. It's ok, though I am not putting any pics up I dont want anyone to see. lol Just Bronco stuff.

                          Control bar? 2 Mountain things?

                            In photobucket, go to your album and under each picture when you roll your mouse over it it will have:
                            Email & IM
                            Direct Link
                            HTML Code
                            IMG Code

                            Click on any of them and it copies the code without having to press control C or command C.

                            Put the Direct link code into the tags you just did OR just click the IMG code button and post that without anything else.

                              THATS IT!!!


                              I used Cinny's tip about rolling it over, selecting direct link, and pasting it here. let me go try it on the Mugo pic in the other thread. Back in a minute.

                              Jeez guys, I just gave you points. Looks like care packages are in order here........
