How do I put images in a post. Everyone else seems to be able to do it. In the family album thread I only put a link... :(

It's easy, really. You type the link, but before the link you put img inside [] brackets. and after the link you put /img inside [] brackets.

Give it a try here and I'll see if I can help you out better if it doesn't work.

Or . . . use "insert image" on the toolbar thingy on your "post reply" box (the tool looks like a snapshot of the mountains).

:tongue Sure, use buttons when you could use code.

Some of us non-geeks prefer the easy way.

But I don't have a link....How do I get a link? I have photos on my computer. ETA and it is not my computer, it is the computer on my desk at work. I have a blog, and I use flickr to post photos there, but I can't firgure out how to do it here. And why can't I post attachments. It says at the bottom :

You may post new threads
You may post replies
You may not post attachments
You may edit your posts

Why? was it something I said? Can no one post attachments or is it just me? :(

Thanks, btw.

Okay, I see the problem. In order to show pics here, they have to reside on the Web. So what you can do is link to a photo you have on your blog (the link address appears in your browser bar up top there when you click on the photo) But if this is a photo you don't want on your blog, there's places like PhotoBucket.com that give you public space for uploading pictures for free.

Also if you see an image on the Internet somewhere, you can just put that link location inbetween the img tags.

The rest of us (well at least this toad) can't do attachments in this forum either.

Okay, thanks. I tried the link thing and it didn't work, but maybe it just needs tweaking.

How's about you type out the link address here, or PM me with it, and let's see what's happening ?

That's my hubby, and me peeking out there on the left. We're at Disney at Epcot in the Living Seas. Isn't my hubby cute?

Wow, your hubby has some pretty big teeth ! Nice smile, though :D

No, silly, Hubby is in the shark. The best part is that Shark is Bruce from Finding Nemo, and Hubby's name is Bruce. :D
