Default How to Include a Photo in a Message

Here's how to embed a photo in a message in the SkateLog Forum:

When you are posting or replying to a message, one of the icons above the message box is a yellow picture of two mountains and a sun (it's the fifth icon from the right). That's the "Insert Image" tool.
  1. Move the cursor to the point in your message at which you want to insert the photo.

  2. Select the Insert Image tool.

  3. In the box that pops up, type in the full Web site address (URL) of your photo. The URL must begin with "http" and end with either .jpg or .gif

  4. Select "OK"
YOUR PHOTO MUST ALREADY BE ON THE WEB:
Note that the photo you want to insert in a message must already be posted on the Web. If you are not sure how to get your photo on the Web, try using one of the Free Image Hosting Web Sites.

HOW TO RECOGNIZE AN IMAGE FILE:
You must insert the image file itself, not the Web page the image is on, therefore the URL must end with either .jpg or .gif. Inserting the URL of the Web page containing the image will not work, therefore the image file you insert cannot not end in .htm or .html (because those are Web pages, not image files).

LINKING TO A MESSAGE INSTEAD OF EMBEDDING IT:
Some of the free Web sites that let you upload and store your photos will not allow you to hot link to those photos. If that is the case, using the "Insert Image" tool will not work. Instead you can use the "Insert Link" tool - that's the one with the globe and the chain link - the eighth tool from the right. When you use the Insert Link tool, you will only be linking to the image, not displaying it in this forum.

NO HOT-LINKING TO IMAGES ON OTHER PEOPLE'S WEB SITES:
We have a policy in this forum that does not allow hot-linking to third party images to display them in this forum. You can hot-link to images on your own Web site, and to your own images on one of the free image hosting sites, but you cannot display other people's photos in this forum without their permission. You may, however, include a regular link to an image on someone else's Web site. For more information about our forum policies see SkateLog Forum Guidelines.

Hi Kathie,

I went to imageshack and have been trying to get our photo as an avatar and it keeps telling me it is a invalid file. Can you help?

You can also use .PNG graphics files, as demonstrated by the custom forum header I created just for this purpose haha. The image above uses this tag:

PS: Kathie, maybe you should hold a contest for people to design a logo for the site hehe.

I got mine by using paintshop pro and resizing. It seems to have worked too!

Why aren't I able to insert images into my posts? I posted the link to my photo bucket account, and the link appeared in my post preview, but not in my post.

Copy and paste the link that has the image tags at the ends of the link. It will look something like this: [IMG]http://photobucket,com/yourpicture1234[ /IMG]

Thanks Res. It worked. My image was quite large though. I'll learn how to reduce them.

Lately some users have been linking images to album uploads to the forum. This results in unreliable display of the picture.

For everyone to be able to see a picture in your post please refer back to the beginning of this thread:
