I want to post a picture from my pictures in a reply. I would also like to post pics to my profile. As it just so happens, though, I don't know how. Can someone please talk me through it? Thanks.
Mash here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1569737/posts for the HTML Sandbox
Still want to do it?
Hang on. You will be humiliated beyond belief.
I'm waiting. LOL.
First you have to upload the pictures to a host site. There are many available for free (try tripod's site.) Then you post your reply here and to include the picure in question you use html code: e.g., < img src="mypicture.jpg" > which includes the url for the picture within the quotes and brackets, as I have above--except that you do not put an extra space (as I have) between the brackets and the text.
Are you logged on?
I use www.imageshack.us to upload my images and then bookmark the imageshack link on my personal computer.
The sandbox is very helpful.
although, I think when you want to insert an image, you have to use the html stuff throughout your post.
good luck, it isn't difficult
Good Luck Sarge.
<img src="http://www.fairpress.org/graphics/CRAP%20copy.jpg" width="150">
The above is the html code for posting the graphic "CRAP copy.jpg" located in the /graphics file on fairpress.org server it has a width of 150 pixels.
I wanted to post pictures from "my pictures" also... but didn't know how.. my BF told me you can only post pictures from a website and there are many steps involved in doing that... so screw it...hehe
Whatchoogotodo, to post pictures, is sign up for a free image hosting account, PHOTOBUCKET comes to mind. If you host your images there, all you have to do is swipe and past the "tag" URL, to here.
It isn't a big deal, there are a lot of folks around here to help you.
There isn't, from my perspective, any "wasted" space, so long as we are hanging close together.
If I can help you, give a shout, via Freepmail!

1. Go to photobucket.com and sign up.
2. Once signed up, log into to it. There will be a menu allowing you to upload picture files.
3. Once uploaded, they will come with the (basic) tag that, in your profile (or an FR posting) allows them to be displayed.
Here is an example of my photobucket page (before I uploaded the image you see):
The rabbit picture tag looks like:
<a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c236/sionnsar/bunny.jpg" border="0" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"></a>
Put that in your posting or profile page, and see the picture.

We all had to ask the first time. I post mine on Photobucket, which is free. Then you just transfer the link to the photo into your text.
