Pictures

I just put up my first FS thread and tried to add 2 pictures but it's not showing up the way I expected. First, I clicked on something that said insert picture and it asked for a link. I don't have a link, I have them on my computer, so I pecked some more until I found an attachment option. I was able to upload both pictures but they don't just appear in the thread, they are at the bottom and need to be clicked on to see. So I edited the post and tried to do the add picture with the URL option that I saw first, using the URL of the attachments when I clicked on them. I still don't have pictures, just a link to the same pictures that the attachments link to.

I'm lost. Does anyone know the secret here? :=)

Re: Pictures

You might want to go and open a Photobucket account, if you are going to be doing a lot of selling, or just posting pics in general. Its free, and they give you the links to post when you upload the pics.

click on the "image uploader" link at the top of the diaperswappers page & you can upload pictures from your computer there. Once uploaded, copy and paste the "code" that is under the picture to your thread

PM me if you need more help!

If you do that the pictures will be huge unless you resize them with another program.

There is a sticky at the top of this forum that has picture info in it. HTH

Re: Pictures

Thanks so much everyone!

And I did, in fact, use another program to size these images before I uploaded them so it's all worked out.
