How to add photo links

How to add photo links.

The best way to add photos to a post is external linking with the IMG tag. Hereís how it works.

First, prepare your photos for web display. Using photo editing software, lower the picture resolution to 48 dpi and resize to 800x600. Do that on a copy of the photo, donít want to damage the original, full-resolution one.

Once the photos are resized, upload them to an image hosting website that allows direct IMG linking. www.photobucket.com is a good site, there are others. After uploading, copy the IMG code and insert it into your forum post, wherever you want a picture.

Hereís an example.
PHP Code:
[IMG]http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c313/Galanity/P1070076.jpg[/IMG] 
The result?


Beautiful pictures, zero board photo space. Let's see your ride photos too!

The journey is the destination.

Great post, I edited your post slightly and enclosed the code in tags so you did have to show it with the spaces in the tags (makes a little more sense for those reading).

Thanks again!

One way to find out if the photo hosting site has direct image linking capability, is to navigate to the photo you want to link to and "right click" on the image. If you get a drop down menu that includes "view image" and you click on that, it should go to a blank page that only has the image on it. You can then copy that address in the address bar and use it to past the code in your post here. If you click on the little yellow square


with mountains in the lower half and what looks like a postage stamp in the upper right, it will open a little popup window



with part of an address in it. Delete the address and paste the address you copied previously in there and click on OK.



It will load the code into your post to display the image. Its what I did to paste all three images in this post!
