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.
