It is best to embed it - just use the [img] tags like you used to do!
And how do I do that now, because I don't remember it at all.
Get the URL for the picture you want to post in the thread, or wherever - it should start with "http: " and end with ".jpg" - then type [img ] (without the space, paste the URL in, and type [/img ] without the space.
So for example, without the spaces, this:
[i mg]http://Catoft heDay.com/arc hive/2012/August/09b.jpg[/i mg]
Would look like this:
What if it is a picture on my own computer? Do I upload it, and if so how? I remember I used to do it all the time with the old PT software, but it doesn't work the same way now.
When I use the Attach tag, sometimes it comes out full size, but more often than not it comes out as a very small image that you have to click on to see full size, and (on my computer anyway) it takes a little time for the image to come up full size.
Pat, I am running into the same thing! I think I will have to load my photos into Photobucket and do it the old-fashioned way. I have a number of pictures to post and uploading them one at a time is a drag! At least in PB they will have the .img extension!
If you upload them into your album here, once it is there, part of the album, if you click the picture to see that page in your album, it will show you option beneath the picture where you can just copy and use the [img] tags like normal. Does that help?
Once you have uploaded your picture to your album here, remember to SAVE. I forgot to do that to begin with, and of course it didn't work.
Concerning size... do you have something like Photo Editor on your computer? If so, you can do it there.
Karen, my problem is that I can't show a video clip here, neither from my alum here, or Photobucket.
Great info Karen!! Now I understand why my last picture I uploaded was so huge.....:eek::o
I will try again now with a picture of Inka
Crossing my fingers ........
YES!!!!!!!!! Thank Karen!!
Hello, beautiful Inka in the garden! :love:
Oh, Inka, what a great photo of you! It shows off your beauty PURRRFECTLY!!!!!
Inka, you're very pretty -- lovely photo.
Well, I still don't know how to upload pictures so they stay full-size rather than turn into those little teeny things that you have to click to see full-size. Now that I've been reminded, here's the question:

Usually if I want to post a picture in a message, it's just a one-time thing, hardly worth all the trouble of uploading it to the album, figuring out the URL, and including it in a post just that once... and then it's just there taking up space. Is there a speedy, efficient way to get pictures to stay full-size?
I see lots of people's posts with lots of different photos day after day, and it makes me think there must be a good way to do it that I just haven't found out about.
When you have a photo you want to add to an album, go to your profile, and open you existing album.

It brings up a dialog box and you hit "Choose File" and select the file you want. The box closes once you select it, and next to the "choose File" button it will have the file name, and below that a button to Upload." Hit that.
That image will appear in a window below the rest of the pictures, and be selected. Hit "Done."
Now go back to your album, and click "Upload pictures" Drag that new picture into the lower window and hit done.
You'll see "Pending Pictures." with that pictures in a row by itself, with a box for its title pn the left and the name of the album it is going into below it, and an option to "Make this my album cover" which you can ignore Hit "Save Changes"
Now you will be back in your album, where you can click on that image or any of the others, and see options for the picture URL, or the BB code. Copy either, paste it into your thread and you get the actual size image, not the thumbnail, like with attachments. Does that help?
Okay, I found my albums and found the Birthday-Cupcake picture, which I put into George's Birthday thread. I think I at least know where to start from now. And I know where to find these instructions again.
Thank you, Karen!
