    Albums and Picture Posting

    We now have a feature called Albums, and instead of having to have your images on an external site, like the former Imagestation, you can load pictures into an album here, and then post them.

    To create an album, go to your profile, and look in the right-hand column. You'll see "MiniStatistics" then "Friends" and then "Albums". Click that, and hit "Show All Albums" and then "Add album." You can then "Add pictures" to your album by hitting the little "Upload pictures" link below the album window. You can add captions as you go, or hit "edit" and add captions at any point afterwards.

    Once you have created your album and put the pictures in it, it it simple to post your pictures to a thread.

    1. Click on the picture you want, so it opens in its own window.

    2. Below the picture, you will see your caption, if any, then two choices for text you can copy. To post pictures somewhere else, like in your own blog, copy the "Picture URL" text and past it into your blog.

    the test will look something like this (but without the spaces):

    htt p://petof theday.c om/talk/pict ure.php?albumid=4&pictureid=20

    To post pictures here on Pet Talk, select, copy and paste the second section, called "BB Code" - it is best to "select all" when you are in that field, then you can paste it into your thread.

    So it will look like this (without the extraneous spaces):

    [IM G]ht tp://petoftheday.com/talk/picture.php?albumid=4&pictur eid=20[/IM G]

    with the IMG tags.
    And your picture will show up like this:





    Hope this helps!

    How cute they are!

    Now, there's no excuses for not posting pictures.

    I'm sorry to be such a pest, Karen, but I still can't figure this out. I found the BB part and did select, copy, paste, and I get the IMG below, but not the picture of my kitty. I thought I followed the instructions but guess I goofed up someplace.








    Added: This is my new kitty Baby when he first came in the house after Thanksgiving. He has grown since then and is all long legs and long body. He is a lovey and purrs a lot. He plays with Buddy, my black cat about five years old and much bigger.

    Okay, now I feel stupid. It did work. I didn't realize it automatically turns into the picture when it is sent to the forum. Duh.

    Karen:
    I'm so elated This is why I have not posted many pictures, because posting from Photobucket or Picassa is so darn slow on my computer that I just gave up.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm going to upload all my pictures now.

    You guys rock!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    This is a great idea. I'll have to remember to try this the next time that I post pictures.

    This is interesting. All the examples are different kinds of animals.

    I am having difficulty using this feature. I don't know if it's because I'm new or there is something not right about my pictures, or if there is something else going on.
