Putting an image into a post at SV.

Permanent Linkby Qray on Sun Jan 10, 2010 4:40 am

To put an image into a post here at SV, you need to have the URL of the image inbetween image tags. Like so...

[img]http://www.compasstower.com/images2/bluesbros001.jpg[/img]

The two most important things to keep an eye out for, and the two mistakes that most people make, is making sure you have the complete URL of the image and that it's inbetween the image tags.

If you don't know what a URL is, it's the address of where the image is on the Web. In the example below, it's highlighted in red...

The Image Tags are simply something that tells your browser that what's inbetween them is an image. In the example below, they're highlighted in red...

[img]http://www.compasstower.com/images2/bluesbros001.jpg[/img]

There's a few different ways for you to put this information in your post. What I'll cover is how I do it.

1. Copy and paste the URL into your post.

2. Highlight the URL.

3. Left Click on the Insert Image tab (circled in black in the following image.)

4. By having the URL highlighted and then clicking on the Insert Image tab,
the Image Tags will be placed on both sides of the URL and it's all ready to post.

Viola!

I'm going to die the way I've lived...poor, screaming, and naked.
