Uploading a picture for display:
I use Image Shack:
http://www.imageshack.us/

Notice, there is a resize option on this page. If your picture is a standard size (taken with your digital camera) this will automatically size it down.

1. Browse your computer and locate the picture
2. Click HOST IT
3. In a minute several links appear . You can choose the bottom one, LINK DIRECTLY TO IMAGE, if your picture is 450 pixels or smaller in width.
4. You can choose a thumbnail version if your picture is larger and a small clickable picture will appear in the forum.


to use LINK DIRECTLTY TO IMAGE, copy the code and place it between
[img]copied%20code[/img] tags.

easy peasy

To use the thumbnail option, copy the entire code displayed and just paste it where you want it.
even easier
no tags needed, as they are already included in the code Image Shack has given you..
:D

Other good (free) image viewing programs that let you crop/rotate/resize images include XnView and IrfanView. These are pretty easy to use, much better than MS Paint, and (as mentioned) free-as-in-beer.

Heck with the thumnail thing (I'll find out what that is later), I'm still trying to figure out'm how to keep the camera from shutting off too soon.

I'm trying to take pictures of my rocks and don't even get enough time to position the rock and then look into the digital camera when the camera turns off!...I havn't found a program yet to transfer the picture from my digital 3.1 megapixil camera however I did find the correct USB cord to use! :lol:

I thought I would practice tonight taking pictures but actually try tomorrow, outside, during daylight hours for best results. I wanted to share with you guys what I have. It looks as though it's going to be a long night. You guys are really great, thank you for sharing your knowledge. I hope one day I might be able to give to you help in a area that I may posess the expertise and give back to you. If nothing else, I am learning so much :D Gems, rocks, cameras. Thanks, your friend acushia

For gems, jewels and general closeups, it really is almost essential to have a macro focus on the camera.
That the little flower setting on most cameras:

Also I've taken some reasonable closeups by putting something on the scanner and then sizing down to post.
Good luck.

O.k., I'm feeling silly here -- I've designed full-scale websites, but can't seem to get this forum's software to cooperate with me.

I use flickr to host my images & they request a link-back. Well and good. I can get an image to work fine on this forum if I exclude flickr's linking html code. For example:

This works:

Code:
[img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2312/2273778529_f2fea9aa20_m.jpg[/img]


Image



but this doesn't:

[img]<img%20src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2312/2273778529_f2fea9aa20_m.jpg"%20width="240"%20height="192"%20alt="52_praisolitelrg.jpg"%20/>[/img]

and neither does this (which is what Flickr asks that I use):

[img]<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/22314586@N00/2273778529/" title="52_praisolitelrg.jpg by ptorraca, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2312/2273778529_f2fea9aa20_m.jpg" width="240" height="192" alt="52_praisolitelrg.jpg" /></a>
[/img]

nor

[url]<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/22314586@N00/2273778529/" title="52_praisolitelrg.jpg by ptorraca, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2312/2273778529_f2fea9aa20_m.jpg" width="240" height="192" alt="52_praisolitelrg.jpg" /></a>
[/url]


Any clues?

You are trying to use html coding and that won't work.
Simply use the format that does work. :)

Thanks, Barbara... guess I left myself open for that. ;-)

But the trouble is Flickr wants the picture to link back to their website. A small consideration for hosting. How do I do that without html?

Nevermind -- I think I figured it out while composing this message. I didn't noticed those little pop-up help notes that show up when you hover over the buttons in the composition window. Here's the solution for anyone who needs to know:

Code:
[url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/22314586@N00/2273778529/]
[img]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2312/2273778529_f2fea9aa20_m.jpg[/img]
[/url]


produces this:

Image

The picture is now linked back to Flickr.

And if you remove everything EXCEPT what is between the tags you get this:

No link.

Have any one of you try to post picture from Picassa?

What is have shown us how to post pictures in here is great -- It will increase sharing and also traffic -- with more participants

Once again, thanks

The easier way will be the copy and paste steps no ? Any one ? :)

I am all for the fastest or the most convenient possible :)

Maybe Gemology on line can find a copy and paste drop pocket for us all ?

Haha, I am trying hard -- :)

The only way I could make it easier is to format the picture myself, upload it and email you when it's done. :wink:

Photo Bucket is EZ to use..

Just down load the picture to photo bucket.
Double click on the photo.
Choose resize right above the photo.
Pick web site (320x240). And yes when it asks if you want to resize.
Then go back one page, or to my album.
Right below the photo is the IMG code click on it and it will say copied.
Come back here get the cursor where you want it and right click on that place.
Then paste.

Even I can do it! Hope this helps anouther new B. Jim
