How to insert photos into a post:
When writing your post, use the Insert Image icon
located under the Italics icon. An opening and closing img tag will appear. Put the URL of the photo between the tags. You'll have code that looks like this--I'm replacing the brackets of the tags with parenthesis here:(img)http://theanticraft.com/images/beltane2008/colororange.png(/img)
will give you:
If the photo is larger than 300px wide or tall, it will be resized in the forums. If it's smaller than 300px wide or tall, it will show at 100% original size.
But what about Flickr?
Go to the Flickr photo page. In this example I'll use the photo that is located here: http://flickr.com/photos/yarnschool-07-1/2273993231/in/set-72157602336614731/
. Note: That url goes to the Flicker Photo Page and CANNOT be used with the Insert Image icon
click on the "Share This" button at the top of the image.
From the menu that drops down, choose "Grab the HTML."
Inside the "Grab the HTML" section you have two options:
• choose the size (We recommend either "Small (240 x 160)" since the Medium or larger sizes will just be resized by the forum.)
• choose the radio button for BBCode, NOT HTML. It won't work if you don't choose BBCode.
Copy the code that appears and paste it into your forum posting. When you preview or post, the image will appear.
So, posting the BBCode (I'm replacing the brackets in the code with parentheses so you can see the code):(url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/yarnschool-07-1/2273993231/)(img)http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2329/2273993231_2674f5de32_m.jpg(/img)(/url)
(url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/yarnschool-07-1/2273993231/)IMGP5319 by knitting_zabet, on Flickr(/url)
Will give you:IMGP5319 by knitting_zabet, on Flickr
What about NSFW images?
NSFW images are those that show boobs/nips, pubes, butts, genitals, and sex toys shaped to look like genitals. If you have a NSFW image you would like to share, please link to it using the Insert Hyperlink icon
