Hi

I have searched using keywords like 'post', 'image' and 'photo' but couldn't find anythng related to my question here.

I know that j2 has posted helpful instructions about posting images from the internet in the "Faces behind the Post" Community forum topic but I am still confused about how to post an image from my own computer and whether this is actually possible.

I have noticed that in some posts the pictures cannot be seen and this has just happened to me in a recent post. I'm not sure what is affecting the link but I would have thought that copying an image from my computer or linking to an image on my computer would be more stable. Is this a fair assumption?

What I would really like to do is create a montage like vader_76 did here, though not as a link but directly into the forum post.

I only want to use 5 or 6 pictures, but I fear that if I insert 5 or 6 links, any one of them may not work which would ruin the effect of the post.

Basically I would like to get a bit more creative in my posts but need some advise on posting images.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Snowy

Hi Snowy,

You can't link a picture (or any file) directly from your computer to SST. You need to post these images somewhere on the web.

What you can do is create an account on a free web hosting site, such as http://photobucket.com/ (don't know it myself, but remarked that some ppl here at SST use it!), then upload your photos on it.

Last (easy) step is to create a link to it in your post:

- either as an image
Code:
[img]http://image_url[/img]

Example:

- or as a link
Code:
[url=http://image_url]My link[/url]

Example: Bigger image

- you can also create a clickable picture
Code:
[url=http://image_url1][img]image_url2[/img][/url]
Example

Hint: by clicking the Quote button, you'll see the original text of this post and thus all the codes used.

Hope this helps! Smile

Thank you so much Alchemist for your response. It has helped me and I am sure it will help others and the many newbies to come.
