Pictures: How do I put one in a post?

Okay, I would like to know how to put a picture in a post. I know the HTML command for an image, but in order for it to show (in my limited knowledge), it has to be uploaded to a publishing site. Apparently, there is a trick to getting them here–unless some of y’all know the secret upload site.

Share! How is it done?

I used to think the world was against me. Now I know better. Some of the smaller countries are neutral.

Before I tell you how to do it, let’s make sure I know how. This is me at almost four years old:

<img src=“” alt=“Me”>

OK, here’s how I did it. I went to the picture that I wanted to post (which was on my webpage), right clicked, and selected “Copy Image Location”. Then I typed:

img src=“” alt=“cool”

The bolded part is what I got from the “Copy Image Location” step. (Also, don’t forget to put those arrow thingies in, or it won’t be read as HTML.)

Hope this works for you, and next time, post in About This Message Board. :slight_smile:

Also, if you right click on any picture, then scroll down to properties, it display’s that picture’s address.
Right click also allows you to copy pictures from the internet to your clipboard.Then paste into another application, like Word etc.

I think LauraRae is asking about free image hosting services, such as The Photo Loft, where you can store images that can be accessed from other sites (like SDMB). Try it; it’s free and easy to use.

I try.

img src=“

Oh, that didn’t do it…ah someone can’t even post the correct instructions…but About This Message Board is the right place to read/ask. lets see:

<img scr=“”>

Oh no that didn’t do it ack. Shoot, one more time, then I give up.

[IMG SCR=“”]

Enclose the code in angle-brackets, also known as greater-than/less-than signs, or shift-comma and shift-period.

Without the anglebrackets:
img src=“

With the anglebrackets:


You are far younger than I expected…

Yer pal,

<img src=>

trying handy’s image…

handy: use the <> brackets and lose the " "

Oh, dear. That’s me and Brian, just so you know. :slight_smile:

I need to practice and try placing an image myself…after work today.

Thanks gang! (And yeah, it should have been in “About The Message Board.” Sorry 'bout that!)

Whoop, let’s fix that UBB coding in the sig line…

…and my grammar in the post. That’s Brian and I.

Laura’s Stuff and Things

Don’t quote me on this, but I think you had it right the first time. Someone once taught me that if you’re confused, just get rid of the other person and see if it makes sense. Since you’d say “That’s me,” the correct usage is “me” and not “I”.

Of course, I could be wrong.

Nothing like a nitpicker who didn’t even SPEAK the language for the first 12 years of his life…

I think, grammar-wise, one should say, “It is I”. I remember an old joke by my English teacher:

An English teacher dies and goes to heaven. Upon arrival, he knocks at the gate.
“Who is it ?”, St. Peter demands from the other side of the door.
“It is I”, the English teacher responds.
“Oh, great. Just what we need: another ENGLISH TEACHER !”

Find me one person who will point at a picture of themselves and say “That’s I,” and I’ll give that one to you, Coldfire. :wink:

My old English teacher will. Definately. So, drinks are on you tonight ?


“You know how complex women are”

  • Neil Peart, Rush (1993)

“Me” is the objective case, “I” is the subjective case. If the word is the subject of the sentence, use “I”: “Brian and I look purty in that there pitcher.” If the word is the object (just about anytime it’s not the subject), use “me”. “It [subject] is [verb] me [object].” Similarly, “That’s me.” or “That’s Brian and me in that there purty pitcher.”

The problem is we kinda lose track of what case we’re using when the sentence gets even a little complicated. After all, we’re not really consciously thinking about rules of grammar – we’re just talking and if it sounds right we go with it. So nobody gets too alarmed if we say “That’s Brian and I” – using a simple noun phrase rather than a pronoun caused us to lose track. Notice the difference if you said “That’s I and Brian.” That one is much more noticeable just because the pronoun comes first.

So although “That’s Brian and I” is technically incorrect, you hear that particular “error” a lot. And it’s what you get used to hearing that eventually determines correct usage. Someday there may even be a new “rule” that says “Use ‘me’ in the objective case unless the sentence contains the word ‘Brian’.”

Ok, I’ll be the first to say it.

You’re as purty as a sunset, LauraRae. :slight_smile:

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.
