Default Uploading images to The Scream

Several new people posting have asked how to include images in their posts.

There are several old threads on the Photo forum but not all relate to the current facilities but here is a test image of our Jack Russell puppy.



I will now try to remember how I did this - please forgive any errors in this midnight candle burning venture!
  1. Find the image you want to use on your computer and if necessary reduce it in size (say 800 x 600 pixels) You will not be able to upload an image of several megabytes"
  2. If you want to upload an image on a website right click to get its properties and then highlight and copy the details
  3. Go to your profile on The Scream and on the right hand side beneath "Friends" there is a box headed "Albums"
  4. Create you first album - my test one was "Uploads to The Scream"
  5. Upload the image from your computer location or copy the web link (think the web link option is available here)
  6. You should at all times be aware of picture size limits for upload
  7. Once your image is uploaded it will appear as your album cover if it is the first one. Click on the thumbnail to get the full size image. Right click and highlight and copy the properties of this image
  8. Your can now put this image in your post by clicking on the add image icon above the text box (you can also use this add image icon to link directly to the image property details of a picture on a website
  9. Paste the properties of your uploaded image into the small box that will appear from using the icon. If you have http copied already you may have to delete the one that is provided automatically

Good luck - have fun!!!

Clicked on the small icon above this reply box to insert a link. Removed "http" from the drop down box as a copy of the web address from the top of the web page included "http"

Here's the pasted text of the link and it will work!

http://www.youpet.com/pet/photos/pho...photoid=170038

You can overtype the repeat of the website details with something simple and here is the result

You Pet photos

Then right click on the Jack Russell picture to get properties and then right click, highlight and copy the "jpg" info

Use the insert image icon at the top of the message box and delete the "http" from the drop down box. Paste your copied image text and lo and behold



Then post and hope all goes well -or be prepared to edit!

Have done a right click to get the properties of the image you tried to post, It comes up with:-

http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rct...92835485034283

I think I am right in that this is not a valid link to an url and it does not seem to include or an image file format

I did a search on your topic and found an image here that I thought might be appropriate

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1...KidMatters.jpg

Hope it posts correctly using the image icon above the text box in which I am writing. The above above information will end up with an [url] start and a slash url stop



The above ends up with an [IMG] statement of location followed by a slash IMG ending.

You will need to delete the http start in the image drop down box as you will probably have included it in the highlight and copy.

Here is the web page from which I pulled the above image

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=managing+the+OMG+moments+of+special+needs &source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=ZS0EU8XYL-nY7AaDoYCgAQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1920&bih=1024#q=s pecial+needs+children&tbm=isch&facrc=_&imgdii=_&im grc=qRovuDJ227NuZM%253A%3BVcrtjUkfZnaWLM%3Bhttps%2 53A%252F%252Flh5.googleusercontent.com%252F-17OO5pYXJRg%252FTXEwFShaJLI%252FAAAAAAAAAqg%252FV5 OVUjOmSDk%252Fs1600%252FEveryKINDERGARTENKidMatter s.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fbloom-parentingkidswithdisabilities.blogspot.com%252F201 1%252F03%252Fevery-kindergarten-kid-matters.html%3B1600%3B1118

Let's see if it works surrounded by a link statement from the icon above this text box and the second highlighted copy changed to something shorter! Again I deleted the http// already in the box before I posted the above link

Images and graphics relating to special needs children

Well it all seems to have worked for me sweetie.......... RUNS

Have bumped this up in response to recent enquiry by jenonnet

Agree we should have an easier facility but it can be done if you follow my explicit instructions

Pity, there's a lot of nice animated pics in gifs.

As you were with that one... ignore my last post, I've just sussed it!!!

It does accept gifs... and animated ones too!! I just hadn't followed it to the original soure pic that's all. Now I know you have to find the original picture/photo, not links to it, once you have done that you can copy the image location and paste it into the URL window after removing the http:// bit first..... result!!!!
