Maybe a redundant question

Postby Mark Doswald » Fri Feb 18, 2011 11:21 pm

How do I add a photo while in the forum? For example, I want to comment back to someone with a photo. Do I first have to upload it to my personal photo's within summitpost first?

All you got to to is paste the URL, then highlight the URL and hit the "Img" button. You don't have to upload the picture to SP first. You can use SP, but Flickr or any other photo hosting site should work.

But the photo does have to be on the web somewhere.

Well as long as it's a photo that is reasonable in size and is appropriate there is the attachment feature here. :)

After you copy and paste the URL and click on IMG, you can see what the picture will look like
(in the forum) by clicking on Preview.

Many images can be found in Photo-bucket or Google Images ...

Mark, it won't work unless "jpg" is the final part of the URL.

You have some html code for image display embedded in your link.

Flickr is not the problem. See?

Get a simple pointer for your image. In flickr, this may require some trickery, as the light box is an application that masks the actual image name. Pick "all sizes," click on a size, then right-click (or mac equivalent, I think ctrl-click) to get the image info. Cut and paste the image name into the message, and use the img button.

BTW, this image
Image

is actually copyrighted. Use TinEye to look it up -- a lot of sites have cloned it.
