Using the Gallery/linking pictures hosted elsewhere

Postby Carolyn » Wed Jul 05, 2006 10:08 pm

To show a picture on the forum it can be hosted on your blog, a fotopic, photobucket, picasa or similar hosting site. Or you can add it by linking as an attachment...

so firstly if you want to use the gallery:
You will need to join the gallery before submitting pictures or comments to the gallery, it is not linked to the forum, although you can use the same details.

File Size
Make sure your pic is below this size: 200Kb, 750x750px

I suggest cards are good at around 400 pxs wide (portrait) and Scrapbook pages will need to be bigger around 600pxs is good and always add another pic for the journaling, Any bigger and they are difficult to view. It is always best to crop off all the

So if you have already added your picture elsewhere on the internet......

To link any other image - you must get the properties of the image by right clicking the mouse whilst you are hovering over the image. Highlight - all the way to the end, it should end with a .jpg or .gif - and then click copy and then paste into the post on the forum. Highlight it and then click the img tag as shown below:

Always scroll on the properties box right to the end to get the link

someone posted this a while back for linking from fotopic - I am afraid I don;t have one so am not sure if it still works:

You can link from a fotopic image... you have to log into your fotopic account and edit the collection your image is in. Then click on the thumbnail of the image that you want to link, this brings up a dialogue box, click on the info tab at the far right and this gives you the address for direct linking.

Hope this helps

This was posted elsewhere - so I thought I would add it to this thread:

You can do something amazing here...you can show the little image but when people click on it they can see the big image. You will need both of the addresses and then copy this and replace the bold writing with each of the addresses:

[url=Put the big image page address here starting with the HTTP][img]Put%20your%20small%20image%20property%20address%20here%20starting%20with%20the%20HTTP[/img][/url]
Make sure there are no spaces, and just add to your post. Don't forget to remind people that they can click through.

This should work with blogs; fotopic sites etc.

Here is an example:
Image

click on it!

Don't forget you can preview it before you submit to make sure it is working. BUT submit after you have previewed

To link a photo from Blogger - hover your mouse over the picture and then right click the mouse - then select properties.

Now you should see the img source - it will be the one with .jpg on the end. You need to take your mouse and then highlight the whole of this address, from HTTP to .jpg - it sometimes wraps around in the little box - but it will be all there. Whilst it is highlighted right click the mouse and choose copy.

You then need to paste this in your post and select the img tags as described in a previous post.

You can always go back and edit your posts and change them...and to test you can see your post in preview first.
