Skip to comments.Question: How does one make a picture viewable on free republic?

I have a tech question: how does one make a jpeg picture link viewable as a picture on free republic? For example, if I want to show this jpeg photo of President Reagan and Mrs. Thatcher:
How can I show the photo itself and not just the link?
Many thanks in advance to whoever can show me how to do this.

(img src= “image url”) replace these ( ) with these <>. Dont forget the quotes around the url.

Yay!! First time to post a pic on FR :)
What a great 1st pic to post! Thanks, RF!
Then you're ready to begin putting up pictures.
JK. It's very simple. Take a gander at W3Schools - Images. Store your image at a site like TinyPic, grab the URL, and paste it into the "img" code.
There is a distinction as to whether the image is located on your computer or somewhere on the net.
Go to photobucket.com (there are other free storage sites)
Sign up, usual username and password deal.
Click on “upload”. If the pix is on your computer, hit “browse” and select the image you wish to upload. Progress bar shows up and completes.
Select “home” or “go to my album”.
Once you see the uploaded image, click on it. On the right side of the screen will be four boxes. Those boxes have the various html prefixes necessary for posting said image on different sites. Some sites (most bulletin boards and fora) use [img]-————[/img] FR uses the code that begins <a=href-——————
Click on that one. The full URL, surrounded by the appropriate html tags, will be copied to your clipboard (on a PC) just by clicking on it.
Now in your FR “posting” sequence, paste (eg; ctrl-V) the clipboard contents into your post. Hit preview to see if it all works. If it does, post away.
I like to add a few blank returns BEFORE and AFTER the pix so it is not shoved all the way to the bottom of your post.
Any time you use *ANY* html code posting on FR, you have to specify line breaks/paragraphs manually. If you have a three sentence intro to your pix you’ll have to give line-feed or paragraph or carriage return codes (any of which will work) or all the text will run together.
Also if the picture is really big you can reduce the demensions or really small add equally. The first number is the width and the second is the height.
< img width407 src="put jpg here"height=393>
Confucius Say.....You have good suggestion; take class on html and related matter. Little by little, make use of this new ‘Forbiden Knowledge’.
