View Full Version : How do I post a screenie or picture?

03-05-2007, 03:47 AM
<p>I seen both links and actual pictures so my question is how do I post a picture in a forum thread? Do I have to send it to photobucket or something like that first or do I copy and paste somehow?</p><p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Yes; you've got the jist of it.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>First, you have to upload your image to a webserver somewhere, whether it's PhotoBucket (or another image host) or your own website.</p><p>Then, when creating a post, you can insert an image one of two ways:</p><p>1. Click the little picture of a tree in the button section above where you type your text.  A dialog window will open, then you can paste your image URL (just the URL, beginning with "http://&quot<img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> into the field.  Click "Insert," and you'll return to your post and your image will appear.</p><p>...or...</p><p>2.  On your website, right-click on the image you want to use and click "Copy" in the context menu that pops up.  Back here in the post window, right-click and choose "Paste," or just place your cursor where you want your image to appear and press Ctrl+V.</p><p>Just make sure you're only doing this with images that belong to you, from a website or a hosting account that belongs to you.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  Nobody wants to be branded a bandwidth thief!</p>

<p>Huh,</p><p>See what above I get when I try and post an image . I uploaded the image to my guild website and tried to link it from there. I get "no remote linking" . The url I am trying to use is </p><p><a href="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/152652/muraha-weapon.jpg" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/152...raha-weapon.jpg</a></p><p> If you look at my signature it has the same problem</p><p>Can anyone advise please?</p>

Guess I sorted that one myself, SOE dont like axiomfiles for some reason

<p>It's much more likely that Axiomfiles has disallowed hotlinking.  I have something similar set up for my EQ2 Graphics website for repeat offenders.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  It's really easy to do, and only takes a minute.</p><p>When I try to go to the Axiomfiles home page, I get this:</p><hr /><p><b>The website declined to show this webpage.</b>                                  HTTP 403</p><p>Most likely causes:</p><ul><li>This website requires you to log in.</li></ul><hr /><p>So yes, it's not SOE...it's the other site.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  SOE's not "logged in," and it's a remote system, so Axiomfiles is blocking it.</p>

I have uploaded  2 pictures to photobucket and did as you said in the earlier post,, clicked on tree and inserted  url,, but nothing shows up on my post,, no pics.. what am I doing wrong???this is my url for one of them     <img src="file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Deb/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-3.jpg" alt="" border="0" /> <img src="file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Deb/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-2.jpg" alt="" border="0" />

Ok that did not work either,,, I used paste then tried ctrl v... grrrrr.

<p>Looks like you're not using the Photobucket URL; this is what I see in your message HTML:</p><p><b><img src="file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Deb/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-3.jpg" alt="" border="0" /><img src="file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/Deb/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-2.jpg" alt="" border="0" /></b></p><p>That's the file path to an image on your computer's hard drive, not to an image hosted on a remote website.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>The URL you paste into the Insert Image popup window should look more like this:<b><a href="http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s62/eq2graphics/seagoats-target-ring_classes/shadowknight_target.jpg" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/...ight_target.jpg</a></b></p><p>When I copy & paste that URL into the Insert Image window, this is what happens:<img src="http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s62/eq2graphics/seagoats-target-ring_classes/shadowknight_target.jpg" alt="" width="720" height="410" border="0" /></p><p>Hope this helps!  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>
