    Reposting Phreds' Instructions!!!!!!!!

    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 and use examples of my photos from;
    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

    NetScape 4.7x Users Section:

    Start a post here on Pet Talk;

    Open your 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}[/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!

    Hope this helps the Internet Explorer users.

    I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running
    from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you.
    I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

    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...

    Link to the Original...

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

    THANKS, Delidog!

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

    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...

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

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

    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.

    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
