Ok, I said I was stupid, I'm going to try again. Phred told me how to do it, and even by following directions exactly I can't get the stupid thing to post. It may be awhile. Sorry!

10-23-2001, 04:17 PM

NO PROBLEMO!!! I still don't know how to
post pictures here. Liz.

Hey Star*ShIner* ~

Tell yer Mom to read the e-mail that's comming... :D

10-23-2001, 07:04 PM
Mugsy said "Lets try again..."

Then she typed:

Mugsy ~ You did the "paste" OK; but you used the "URL" Button.
You must use the "IMAGE" Button to paste in a Picture Location!

Like this:

"Billy the Beagle"...


"Lazy Dogs on the Bed"...


"Sneaky Sophie"...


"Studly Dudley"...


Mugsy ~ To see what I did (and what it looks like), come to
this post and "Edit" it. Just look, don't change anything.
Then click on the "edit post" grey box to restore the post.

{Phred here - again, at midnight}
I've just edited this post to reduce these 4 photos to the normal
"posting" size. The "jumbo" size photos that were here were
taking too long to load and display.

There IS an example of the "jumbo" sized photo a couple of
posts below this one. /s/ Phred @ 11:55 pm

LOL Someone was a NAWTEEDAWG! Checkout the footboard on the bed of the second pic. Sorry Mugsy, I love catching the NAWTEEDAWG
evidence in pics.

10-23-2001, 07:49 PM
Eee-Yipes :eek: Mugsy ~ How did you get such *huge* pictures
stored on WebShots?? The other pix in your album weren't nearly
so big?

Did you go into that post via "Edit" to see the difference between
what you did and what I did?

Try again, using the "IMAGE" Button :D.

10-23-2001, 08:13 PM
no let's see

10-23-2001, 08:28 PM
Mugsy ~ OK, I figured out where the *jumbo* pictures came from...

WebShots has you pix stored in Three sizes: Thumbnail, Large,
and Jumbo (high resolution, full size).

When you post pictures on Pet Talk, you want to click ONCE on the
Thumbnail size photo and WebShots will display the one size
larger photo. That "one size larger" photo is the one you want
to Right-click on and paste into Pet Talk's "IMAGE" box.
Don't use the "high resolution, full size" - it's way too
big :eek: for the BBS.

Here's an example of all three:

Thumbnail size:

"Posting" size:

The "way too big" high resolution (full) size:

OK; time for you to try it!

Mugsy ~ You're getting REAL close :D!

Look at what you entered ~ The ONLY mistake was you forgot
the "backslash" &gt;&gt; / &lt;&lt; at the END of the image string.
You typed " " at the end.
It should have been " [/IM G] "

Keep trying - you've [i]almost got the hang of this! :D

Oh; and that time you did use the correct size photo!! ;)

10-23-2001, 09:18 PM
Phred, is that pic you just posted in 3 sizes one of mugsy's dogs??????? OMG!!! HE/SHE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!

mugsy -- your babies are so beautiful. I love their expressions. I've always been dying to see their pictures. Thank you so much for posting!!! What is your webshots address? I need to see more pics!!!! They are simply gorgeous!!!!

10-23-2001, 09:24 PM
aly, here it is:

10-23-2001, 09:29 PM

10-23-2001, 09:33 PM
YEAH!!! I did it!!! THANKS PHRED!!!!!! By the way...the picture above is of Sophie...the one we think is a Pharoah Hound/Lab mix. Ok, I'm going to try on another post of pictures and see what happens.

10-23-2001, 09:43 PM
Yippie! She got two out of four! :D
{Phred's comments below...]

Hmmm; somehow you got some {UR L] code in there. What you
needed was ONLY code, like this:
http://wsphotofews.excite.com/009/F7/1P/3n/rI93918.jpg[/IM G]


This is DeeDee

This is Sox

Same problem as above - mixed un [UR L] code...

You needed this:
http://wsphotofews.excite.com/037/MW/R7/iB/rp85910.jpg[/IM G]


Well there's 4 of them...I'm going to wait until tomorrow when
I'm not ready to fall asleep at the keyboard. Thanks for everyone's
interest in the poochies.
Aly, Sox is a female...I know that goes against all reason
that she is interested in the remote! lol

[Editing NOTE:] Where I've shown lines of code above ~ I have
Very Intentionally [i]Inserted Spaces when I typed the
"IMG" or "/IMG" codes so you follks can SEE them. To make them
WORK - you NEVER put spaces anywhere within a line of code - NEVER!!!

Good Job, Mugsy - You're getting the hang of this picture posting game!

MUGSY!!!!!!!! Can I move into your house?!?! I'm dying here! I LOVE your pics. All your babies look soooooooooooo sweet. Sox, Jazzy, George, Dudley, Billy, DeeDee, Serenity (LOVE that name.. its on my list of fav names), Tigger, Vonney, and Sophie have all stolen my heart!!!!!!

10-24-2001, 12:06 AM
In an attempt to make this tutorial on Pet Talk Picture Posting
a little more complete; I'll copy a set of steps I posted on
another of Mugsy's topics.

Please NOTE:
These steps mention WebShots and use an example
of Mugsy's photo from WebShots; 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 in a line of code! Those spaces
you see were put there to prevent the Pet Talk software from
treating those lines as "valid" instruction codes. Without those
extra spaces 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 WebShots.com (http://www.webshots.com/homepage.html).

Start a post here on Pet Talk;

Open WebShots in another browser window;
Click on the thumbnail to get the next larger photo;
RIGHT-Click on the larger photo;
Select and Click "Copy Image Location";

Come back to your post on Pet Talk;
Click on the "IMAGE" button below the message block;
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:
http://wsphotofews.excite.com/037/9J/J2/cS/qJ96474.jpg[/IM G]

Finish your message and post it!

Now for the real thing:
"Mugsy's Vonney napping on the coffee table"...


"ZZzzz...Oh I'm sorry, was I snoring?"

WebShots Thumbnail sized photos make great signature photos.
The steps to code a photo into you signature file (located on
your profile page) are exactly the same as outlined above.

If you want to display a photo in the body of a post, use the
next size larger photo - the one you'll get
by clicking on
the Thumbnail photo.

OK, Folks; Picture Posting 101 class is over for
tonight! If I've managed to totally confuse you ~ send me an
e-mail at: [email protected]
and I'll try to un-confuse you!

Updates above on the Picture Posting Tutorial.

10-24-2001, 06:11 AM
What adorable dogs! I love them! The pic of Vonnie sleeping on the coffee table is a trip :) They really are beautiful dogs. I am really drawn to Dudley. He has such soulfull eyes and such a dear, loving expression.

Will you give them all a hug for me, please?

Thanks for the pictures, we were all anxious to see your furkids. It's nice to finally be able to see what a lovely pack you have :)

10-24-2001, 07:52 AM
Mugsy - they are all so adorable! Give them all a hug from me!
My question is, how on earth do you keep that fishtank from getting crashed into by crazy poochies!!??? That is the main reason I don't have any fish - I'd be afraid to have the tank and the dogs in the same room!

Congratulations Mugsy on learning how to post the pictures. It took us all some learning to do it but being able to see everyone's furbabies makes it worth while! Thanks for sharing your kids with us! They are georgeous! :D

10-24-2001, 10:11 AM
Ok, I'm feeling brave....I'm trying again. I'm going to start with Tigger this time. Not the best picture of him, but it's the only one on that CD. Oh yes, The BED, we think the culprit was Vonnie. He is such a butthead...but we love him!! lol Naughty is one word to describe it!!! hehehe


[ October 24, 2001: Message edited by: mugsy ]

10-24-2001, 10:22 AM
YEAH!!! I did it again!!! Ok, let's try again!!! Let's go with Jazzy and Serenity this time.


Next will be George (just for ilovehounds!)


10-24-2001, 10:28 AM
Oh, Mugsy!! I don't care how many tries it took, it was worth it!! :D I especially enjoyed Vonney on the coffee table!! And that Jazzy is HUGE, but looks like a real love. They are all wonderful!! :D :D :D

10-24-2001, 11:21 AM
George and Jazzy are stealing my heart just like Sox did. Your household must be heaven :)

10-24-2001, 11:44 AM
Most of the time it is! lol Jazzy is actually pretty petite for a Dane, she's only 115 pounds. She is tall though...all legs!! Everyone loves George, he is so sweet. Right now he's sleeping on the couch while Sophie, Daisy, Serenity, DeeDee, and Tobey all roughhouse and bark around him...what a riot!

Oh yes, I had to tell you guys this, I figured of all people you would get a laugh out of this. I was in the bedroom this morning and heard paper rustling out in the living room, so I gimped my out to the living room on my crutches and was greeted by Serenity with no head...it was totally submersed in a Doritos bag. You could see the bag suck in and out when she would breath and hear her crunch crunch on the chips. I was mad at her for getting them off the table, but I was laughing so hard I couldn't punish her!

10-24-2001, 11:51 AM
I am in LOVE!!!! The pictures are great! My goodness - your vet and dog food bills must be enormous! How wonderful to have a house full of beautiful faces like all of theirs. Each picture you took says soooo much! They are great!

Thanks for sharing them all!

10-24-2001, 07:32 PM
What a beautiful fur family! I love them all! More pictures! :)

What a lovely family you have!

10-25-2001, 01:04 PM
Thanks guys. I will be getting another CD on Friday and I'll start another topic with their pictures. Aren't you guys getting bored with my poochies?? And anyone who wants to move in, you're welcome, but you have to fight the dogs for bed space!

10-25-2001, 01:13 PM
Nooooooooooooooo, we'll NEVER get sick of your pics!!!!!!

Mugsy, you are my kind of girl. Still wish I lived next door to you. No wait, I better rethink that...your *the more the merrier* philosphy would definitely rub off on me.

10-25-2001, 03:40 PM
What a wonderful, beautiful, furry family you have Mlugsy! I have to admit that Jazzy really stole my heart with that expression. Each and everyone is a treasure! What a fun house, filled with SO much love, I'm sure!! And good work on getting the pic. posting thing down! Now you're hooked :)

10-25-2001, 03:49 PM
Mugsy, I love your family but I am in love with Dudley. Look at that face, so sweet and loving. Please, more pictures we all love them

Daisy's Mom
10-25-2001, 04:38 PM
Sick of pictures? Us? NO WAY!

10-26-2001, 08:48 AM
Loved the pics, mugsy! I can't have too many dog pics to look at.
Thanks for the tutorial Phred. I followed along the whole thing. But...dang!...I've got a Mackintosh operating system . Macs use different words & formats from PCs. And...dang the second!...my browser is Internet Explorer.
But I got the principles of how things work from your great tutorial. Now to translate it to a Mac! Thanks, thanks, thanks.

Okee-dokey..where in the world have I been? :confused: How in tarnation did I miss this?? :rolleyes: :mad: :(
Well, Mugs, 'ole girl..leave the candle burnin' in the window cause I think a whole lot of PetTalkers are a-headen you way! :D
Sleeping quarters is no problem..on the bed, off the bed..as long as I'm surrounded by your family of fur, I have no qualms! You are awesome, how do you do it? And I'll bet each one is totally trained and sweet, huh? Lucky, lucky lucky!! ;)

10-26-2001, 06:16 PM
Well, let's not get crazed here. Most of them are pretty well trained, but the jumping thing is a problem. Sox and Serenity are our wild children. And BARKING!!! Sheesh, all of ours have got a set of lungs. Edwina's Secretary is going to visit tomorrow, you can ask her!

10-26-2001, 11:34 PM
What kind of dog is Serenity? Does she have any Pit Bull in her? She kinda looks like

10-27-2001, 08:41 AM
Serenity is Pit/Boxer mix and Tigger is Pit/Husky mix. They are both great dogs.

11-02-2001, 01:33 PM
OMG Billy the beagle how cute is he :)

More pics of Billy PLEASE !

And George how gorgeous is he, WOW :)

More Pics Of George PLEASE !

Thanks for posting the houndies, I enjoyed them very much.
