Linking to an image

When using this method you must link to an image stored on a publicly accessible web server, e.g. You cannot link to pictures stored on your own PC (unless it is a publicly accessible server) nor to images stored behind authentication mechanisms such as Hotmail or Yahoo mailboxes, password-protected sites, etc. To display the image use either the BBCode [img] tag or appropriate HTML.

An example of an image on my Blog

Here's an image that resides on my Blog.


Right Click on the image and you will get this menu. Select properties.


You will get this screen


Select/highlight the "complete" Address: (URL). Make sure that you select it up to the end which includes the .jpg extension in this case.


Right click. Select copy.


Return to your post on the forum. Select "Image" Icon.


Right Click in the image link box.


Select Paste


Select Ok
If the WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) button is off and looks like this you will see this.


If the WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) button is on and looks like this you will see this.



Please note that the image tool adds the image tags for you but if you prefer you can add them yourself. Like in this example of the image above.

Code:
[img]your URL[/img]

Code:

<<< Got this by dragging/dropping from a website - You can also (in Firefox) right-click the image and select "copy image location", then control+V to paste it into the image icon box (see above) and hit OK. I noticed Internet Explorer does not have that option

On a Mac -single button mouse you use (?) command+click to get the same right-click functions. Maybe someone with a Mac could confirm which key it is for sure - And, can you drag/drop images?

Thank you Callie! I'm downloading Modzilla Firefox. I like the idea of drag and drop.

Here's where you can download it from a reliable site for Windows: http://download.cnet.com/mozilla-firefox/?tag=mncol

Firefox is available for Mac as well here: http://download.cnet.com/Mozilla-Firefox/3000-2356_4-10208569.html?tag=mncol

Here's some information on how to right click on a Macintosh. Notice that their are several ways and it depends what type of mouse or whether you're using a laptop:

For Mac Users: Donna, was kind enough to provide us with the steps to add an image to your post:

POSTING IMAGES USING A MAC

With a Mac, it's really very easy to upload an image!

1. Open a website where you have your image posted already (I used my own website).
2.
Hold down the CONTROL KEY, and click on the image you want to post. A
little window will open which will have several choices. The choice you
want is COPY IMAGE ADDRESS. Click on that to highlight it.
3. Now,
come to the forum or area on this WSO site where you want to post this
image (the one you just copied) It will say "Post a new topic."
4. While you are there, go ahead and enter your Title on the first line.
5.
Just below that are many icons. Scan the icons until one of them says
IMAGE. Click that. When the little box comes up, put your cursor in
there and click. Now, point your cursor to the top tool bar and click
EDIT. Under EDIT, you can click PASTE. Bingo, it will appear, live and
in color!! (whoo-hoo!)
6. In the bigger box below that (where all
the fun emoticons are jumping on the left), you can enter your
description, questions, comments, etc.

Now, that wasn't so painful, was it? Gotta love these MACS!!
