POSTING PICTURES on Pet Talk; class 101
Pet Talk's "Posting Pictures; 101" created 10/24/2001; revised 1/20/2002;
Further Revised on 1/14/2003.

Please NOTE:
These steps mention http://www.ImageStation.com/index.html and use examples of my photos from ImageStation.com;
but the Basic Steps are valid for any photo stored on any internet server.

AND... My Operating System is Windows 98, Second Edition;
my Browser is NetScape version 4.78.
IF your Op System and/or Browser are different, then the steps you must
take might be slightly different!

That said; remember that the Code Lines shown as examples are what
you must end up with for your pictures to post properly on Pet Talk ~ just
remember that there are NOT to be ANY spaces or {*} in a line of code!
Those spaces and {*} you see were put there to prevent the Pet Talk software from
treating those lines as "valid" instruction codes. Without those extra spaces
or {*} you could not have seen the code ~ the BBS would have made a picture.

Here are the *steps* to follow ~ AFTER you have your pictures uploaded to a site
such as http://www.ImageStation.com.

NetScape 4.7x Users Section:

Start a post here on Pet Talk;

Open your ImageStation.com album in another browser window;
Click on the thumbnail to get the next larger photo;
RIGHT-Click on the larger photo;
* Observe the drop-down box and
* Select and Click "Copy Image Location";

Come back to your post on Pet Talk;
Click on the "IMG" button above the message block;
* a pop-up Image data box will appear
Point the arrow/cursor Inside the pop-up address block;
** RIGHT-click the mouse;
** a drop-down menue with a choice of "Paste" should appear;
Select and Right-click "PASTE";

Now you should see a line in the message block like this:

[IMG}http://www.imagestation.com/picture...cf/fcf7b950.jpg[/IM G]

Finish your message and post it!
Hit the "add Reply" button to finish.
----- End of NetScape Section --------

Internet Explorer Users Section ------
Internet Explorer does it Differently than NetScape!

Here's the steps to post a picture on Pet Talk using the Internet Explorer Browser...

** Open a Pet Talk post in one window; and your Photo Hosting web page in another window.
Display the Thumbnail or next size up photo that you want to post.

* Point you mouse ON TOP of the photo image
* RIGHT-click ON the photo
~~ A drop-down box will appear with the following active choices:
~~~ Save Picture as
~~~ Set as Wallpaper
~~~ Set as Desktop Item
~~~ Copy >> IGNORE THIS / DON'T USE IT!!
~~~ Add to Favorites
~~~ Properties >> This is what we use!!

* Point to Properties
* RIGHT-click on Properties
~~ Another drop-down box titled "Properties" will appear
* Find the line labeled "Address: (URL)"
~~~ It will Start with "ht tp:// and End with ".jpg"
*Put the cursor on the "H" in http
* HOLD DOWN the LEFT-mouse clicker and
* Scroll across the whole address - get it ALL highlighted (it might take up two lines).
* Release the left mouse button
~~ You should now have Highlighted the whole address
* POINT to the highlighted address
* RIGHT-click on the highlighted address
~~ Another drop-down will appear with "Copy" an active item
*POINT to and RIGHT-click on the word "Copy"
~~~ You have now memorized the photo location address

** Come back and Open up the Pet Talk window again
* Find the "IMG" Push Button
* LEFT-click the IMAGE button
~~ A data box should open
* POINT to the empty area inside the box
** RIGHT-click inside the box
~~ Another drop-dow appears with PASTE active
* Point to and RIGHT-click the Paste choice
~~~ You should see the photo address appear inside the box
~~~ It will start with "ht tp:// and end with ".jpg"
* Click on the OK inside the data box

~~ Now you should see the photo address inside the Pet Talk Message window.
It will have an [im g] in front of and an [/im g] behind the address.
The whole image line will look like this...

80b56514748191afcbcf/fcf7b950.jpg[/IM G]
(but that space in the [/IM G] WON'T be there.)

Finish up your post message and you're DONE!
Hit the "Add Reply" button to finish.

Hope this helps the Internet Explorer users.

I just found these instructions and would like to say :

I LOVE delidog and Phred!!

I was wondering if this thread could be put as an "announcing" or something where it would stay at the top? These helped me alot when I was just figuring out how to post pics. and a lot of newbies always have questions. Just an idea...

Delidog posted a good summary of the Picture Posting Tutorial...

THANKS, Delidog! :D

But (there's always a Butt) :rolleyes: ...

For First Timers, or IF you're having trouble...
You might want to read the Original -
and the follow-up posts that list some additional Tips & Tricks...
Here's the Link:

POSTING PICTURES on Pet Talk; class 101... (http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/showthread.php?threadid=7406)

We're glad Dad's "Class" has helped some of you.
The more Pictures the Merrier! :D

As for making it "stick" as an announcement -
You flatter us! :D

But - we don't think that's really necessary...
When someone posts a picture question -
someone usually points them toward the Tutorial.

Folks would get tired of seeing the Tutorial *stuck* at the top of the BBS.

That should be posted somewhere cause almost everyone who just joins asks that lol :rolleyes:

I must just say that I have been here for nearly 200 posts (yes, I am still a novice), and yesterday was the first day I found Phred's instructions.

Karen, could we put them under FAQ?

They are soooooo helpful
