Same here, CC. Though it looks like just two different ways to skin a cat. :cam:

Morning CC, Stark. You both have it correct anyway.
By using the second one you don't need to use the Img command on the thread. :thumbs_up:

IMG nor URL is Greek. :lol:

IMG is short for Image, so a tag you use for your images, like photos, animated gif and such. It tells the forum software that the thing (see below) between those tags is an image, so the software knows it is to collect and show it.

URL is short for Uniform Resource Locator, or in plainer english, the path to (a page on) a website.
For example www.cnn.com is an url, and posting.php?mode=quote&f=47&p=1069828 is one too. It's the line in the top of your browser.
The URL-tag is used for making links in other words. The two examples above don't have it, but if you want to make a neat link you can't do without that tag.

Once you've done this click on Img and when the "Insert Image URL" window opens press the Ctrl and V buttons on your keyboard, This will paste your URL, which you had copied earlier! into the thread window. Click OK and you should see your picture in the thread.

Hallo everybody, hope you are doing well, I am a new member and been following the webcams for a while! Can anybody please help me, how do you take pictures of the webcams?
Had Zebra's and Wildebeest on a shot, could only capture them by printing the shot!
I love taking pictures in the wild, so would really like to share them with you!

Have a great day to all!
Rooibees :D

Welcome Rooibees! :yaya:

Do a right mouse click on the photo you want to post, and choose the Save as.. option.
Choose a folder you'll easily find back, and upload it to for instance Tinypic. Copy the link the site gives you, new post in the correct topic, paste the link, preview, post. Done!

Here is the uploading bit in a slower pace. ;)

Both are good. The one is just smaller than the other and therefore takes up less space. :lol:

:hmz: I think you would have to upload it thru a hosting site like Flickr or Tinypics to do that. :D
