Picture help

I really need help on how to insert pictures in a post. I don't have any problem in other forums except here. I have url address also but seem cannot work also. What do you have to click? Insert image or link or what? I don't think size is the issue here.

Oh, I tried using search also but can't get anything there.

Thanks in advance

The tag is [img] then the url, and then the close tag (which I can't type here or else you won't see the code at all but I'm sure you can figure the rest out...)

Uhm, I can't find the img tag. Is it insert image tag? When I clicked on that, it asked me the url address and somehow didn't show any img wrapping. Look at the pic. album. I just test to post my tank set up and I think only the url address shows up.

Ninoboy, you can just type the tags in.

To see what I mean, find a post that has images (you can check one of my photo albums) and hit "quote". You'll see the code show up in the quoted text....

Try again. I'll be online for awhile yet...

I still can't do it. So I typed img in the bracket and then followed by the url address and then closed with /img in the bracket correct? And it still shows the address only and not the picture.

That should work...

Did you edit your original post (in the photo album)? I just checked it and it's the same as it was before. Do you want to try posting a small pic here so I can see what you're doing?

Ahh, I think it's because you're linking to a web PAGE and not just a specific image. When I post a pic, it's just an image that's sitting on my website (i.e. http://wannacomewith.com/cw/aq/20g_otto_070504.jpg), not a specific page on my website.

Does that make sense?

The problem is that link is not a picture but it is a html document.

The link to your picutre is:
http://www.msnusers.com/_Secure/0QgCz*48S*Ek4aJZYFppvVykH5QTMJcIw9fa5tgCjTvqgPOMYY xGw4WTOre!KZmKNZAWG*m6MksV6!rx151E7GDAKR3wer5iOnlp 76WBpfuc/DSCN0011.JPG

The problem is that it is a little big.

Yeap, you both are right. Thanks Amanda and Mpb. I know what the problem was. I have to get the specific pic. address. I found it in the property. They are bit too large to post.

Thanks for being patience. I'm really from stone age
I'll resize all of them first then

ninoboy,
try out www.tinyurl.com. It'll turn your big url into a little one. And if you use Mozilla Firefox for your browser, you can actually get an extension that adds this to your right click!

There are other sites like sony's imagestation and photobucket that you can use for hosting that will allow linking.
