Image Posting Tutorial

Here's my image posting tutorial. Hopefully it'll be helpful to someone.

Open up two internet browser windows.
With one browser go to to edit/create your post.
With the other browser go and find the picture (on the web) you want to display in your post and right click on it. Go to properties.
Select the Address: (URL) (Click and drag over it.)
Copy the Address/URL (Right Click --> Copy)

Go back to your post and click the “Insert Image” button

A dialog box will pop up.
Paste the picture Address/URL in here.
Click “Ok” and it should have inserted the code in your message. Notice that this will put the [IMG] code at the bottom of the text you are editing every time. Just cut and paste to put where you want.
Use the “Preview Post” button to see if it worked.
Edit and adjust as needed then post!

If this doesn't make any sense, try these tutorials about image posting.

The html code to make the picture below show looks like this. The real one does not have the * in the first bracket. The asterisk is shown here to allow you to see the code. Otherwise it would just display the picture.


We are not in windowless little cubes staring at little screens; we are on big, motorcycles riding across the desert in the heat and dark. We are happy. We are riding away from the valley of darkness. We are the lucky ones. We pity the fools driving cages pulling trailers, boats and toys. We are riding motorcycles!
