Fine by me

Can you put the last two bits at the bottom of the OP about photobucket above the google bit so this fits with that -thanks



I need to ask here why there does not seem to be a way of uploading from our pc and how do you post a pic that is on a webpage with other pics?..How do you post from Photobucket? It doesn't work for me!


Also to upload an image directly from a website (no need to download to the pc or use photobucket - most times this works unless it is protected):

If you find a website - eg http://www.gerrymccannsblogs.co.uk/index.htm

Go to an image (eg bike pic halfway down on the left)
Right click and go to properties (this will show the photo details)
Highlight the image address /url - in this case it is "http://www.gerrymccannsblogs.co.uk/Madelaine468x397s.jpg"
In your post, click on the "img" button at the top
Again this brings up a flashing cursor -
Press Ctrl and V - to past this in

I can't thank you enough HiDeHo, your instructions are so clear and easy to follow that even I can understand. I am very grateful. Also anyone else who has tips for "Dummies" please post them.

HiDeho

Thanks for the link however could you throw some light on why I cannot copy an avatar- have followed your instructions but I get the response - "The URL you specify is invalid". I have tried 3 different URL addresses and I always get the same response – what am I doing wrong?

I suspect the reason that you cannot upload pictures from your own PC is pretty simple. The forum admin has no storage space for pictures.

If you need to use a picture that is on a web page with other pictures then you will need first of all to save it to your own PC.

Right click on the picture and use the "Save picture as" or "Save image as" (depending on browser) to save the image to a folder on your own PC.

Unfortunately there is no easy way to upload it so you will have to use a hosting site.

The easiest I have found is

http://www.uploadthis.co.uk

You have to register with this site but although you use an email address there is no activation code or anything. You instantly get access to the site. Incidentally, though I have used the site for more than two years I have never received any email from them.

Once you have signed up and set your password you can instantly log in.

After logging in - choose the upload option.

Browse to the location of the picture on your PC and submit it - ticking the box to make the picture public.

Once the picture has been uploaded you will get a message saying the file was successfully uploaded.

Then you should choose the Manage option.

This will give you a list of all your files (only one at the moment of course).

Click on the file name in the list.

A page will open showing your picture.

You can now copy and paste the URL from the address bar at the top of the screen and use it as in the instructions in the main post above where basic picture posting is explained.


Thanks you may have solved my problem

Let's see if this works, knowing my luck it won't.
