Response to I like a man who marks his boxes!

Hi Mike(and all other interested parties)

Posting images to discussion/chat groups is usually done by first uploading the images onto a “host” website. You then post a link, within your text to your images by cutting and pasting the information in the “tag” box that’s created when you upload to the host. It should however be mentioned that some forums use the “url” or “img” information rather than the “tag” for posting. There are a number of host sites available, most are quite cheep and better yet many are free some take donations (please give!).

So when you post your post will look like this,

“Bla Bla what I have to say is yada yada and whoop de do see image below

img src="htttp://img.youhostcompanysnamehere/albumname/imadenamehere/etc.jpg"

Bobs your uncle and fanny’s your aunt unless you live in America.”

Where I have put
img rc="htttp://img.youhostcompanysnamehere/albumname/imadenamehere/etc.jpg"
your image will appear-just like magic.

Note I have removed <> symbols that enclose the "image to jpeg" part above and added an extra t to the http portion as if these had been included you would be looking at an image window with no image something like this

We are very lucky at missing-lynks as you can test the link by clicking on “preview” if the image doesn’t show up then you’ve done something wrong, most likely failed to copy and past the complete image "tag".

In spite of how convoluted it may appear above its easy –heck even I can do it! Once you have registered with a host its usually quite simple to upload your images using a process similar to doing “attachments” for email.

If you right click on any of my images (or most of the other posted images) go to the bottom of the box and click on “properties” this shows where the image came from. If you do it to a few different posts you’ll find the names of a variety of hosts, just “Google” the names and pick a host you like!

I use http://photobucket.com as my host, The price is right (donation via PayPal!) and their “up time” is very good. If you want to see more of my models click on the Photobucket link above.
In the box marked “Go to Albums” type in tomsime this will let you view a small selection of my models-more to follow soon.

I hope this helps if not let me know and I'll try to clear up any confusion
