Is that possible for a newbie like me to post photo in the posts?

:lol:
Then the people here would start topics about ID'ing the animals or trees.

Have you tried posting a photo yet? Just put it in this topic, then I can see if or which mistakes you make.
It looks like only the Satara webcam is up, with rain, but posting a boring photo is the same as posting a great one. It's just the technique.

Good luck!

Now all you need to do is go to the forums, reply or create a new topic, and paste the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" into the post. (In the screenshot it's the black line.)
And that's all there is to it. ;)



:doh: :doh: .... Sorry DuQues, that's where you lost me, the rest I followed. Help with the last little bit please. I do see a Img box just below the subject line, do I use that and if so, how? Many thanks!

Hi Sundowner,
let's see if this helps.

When you click on the Img box the small window, Insert Image URL, will open and you have to paste your URL in the space there. Click ok and that should do it.

Once you have inserted your URL it should good like the first image and on clicking OK in will insert the image in the thread and should look like the second picture.

Hi Sundowner

Posted my first pics through tinypic tonight, after a LONG time eventually got it right!

Open 2 browsers, one for your post and one with your pictures on tinypic, click on the IMG Link which will go black, then move your cursor to this black line and clik Ctrl C, now click on your post and then click Ctrl V. The code will now show in your post and if you click Preview you will see your picture.

Remember to downscale when you upload, there is a size for billboards

Hope this helps!

Why are the animals always on the webcams when I'm not?

I'll keep an eye on this thread tomorrow!
Most sites used for picture storage, tinypic, flickr, picasa and so on, usually downscale your picture automatically, or at least Picasa does! and you see your pictures URL simply clicking with your right mouse button on the picture.

Where have you stored your pictures?? flicker, tinypic??

Rumuruti, I have followed the explanation of DuQues. I have set up a Tinypic account and went to the forums and opted to "post a reply" in this thread. Got stuck at the place I quoted above about the Img ....

Anycase, what does IMG and URL stand for? Greek to me.

Ok, I don't have an account on tinypic. I'll open one and make copies of the various action to follow and that should make it easy for you to follow.
I might not manage to do it this evening but will def do it first thing tomorrow morning.

Was uicker than I thought to open an account.
Here it is
Image

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.
