    Posting pics in-line with your text

    A common question that comes up on these forums is how to post pics in with the text.

    What you really need is a place on the web where you can host your pics - the inportant thing is that the host must allow direct linking of your pics.

    Here are a few:

    http://www.villagephotos.com/
    http://photobucket.com/
    http://www.snapfish.com/
    http://www.iphotohost.com/
    http://www.cardomain.com/
    http://www.webshots.com/ (no direct linking though)

    After you have your pics hosted, you are ready to get them in your post.

    I've found it easiest to open another browser wind and get the picture displayed. Then I highlight the entire URL (web address) of the pic and copy it to the clipboard (right click - copy).

    In your response, you will click on the icon above the reponse window that looks like . It will prompt you for the address to be formatted [ img ] xxx [ /img ]

    There you have it.

    Most sites on the web allow you to do direct linking. If you are looking for a picture of something out on the web, usually you can right click the item and select "Properties". In the window that pops up, you can highlight and copy image location info to the clipboard as listed above and repeat the steps to insert it in your post.

    So - If I upload a piccy to this site, this tip will work, right? Seems like it would, but this method doesn't work.

    Scott this site isn't a photodump like a Monty Pics, et al. I think there is a work around using the attached images, but I need to figure it out. HDD size isn't a problem with the package I'm using, so let me see if I can figure it out...

    Man - I don't mean to make more work for you, Cebby! It's no big deal to me as long as the thumbs work!

    Thanks for the attention to detail!

    I know it works, because it works that way over at Pirate4x4. It may be a setting in vBulletin I need to discover. Let me see what I can dig up...
