    Hello Ladies,

    How do you post actual pictures (not the link) inside a thread?

    TIA.

    First you have to sign up to a site that converts the photos you upload on it into image codes. Photobucket is a good one. Then you just upload all of your photos on that site and copy the image code and paste it into your thread post.

    Thanks for asking because most times I won't click on a fotki link ina thread. Call me lazy but it is what it is. I like seeing pics in the thread.:giggle:

    Use an image hosting site such as Picturetrail or Photobucket, upload your pics, and then copy the image code into your post on LHCF.

    Thanks, ccmuffingirl,

    WhipEffectz1, I'm the same way and I started a 3 month comparision thread and I don't want anyone having to click on the thread AND then the link. We can be lazy together. :grin:

    I GOTCHA! This happened to me two days ago, i thought i was crazy, lol.
    Basicly i had to open the pictures with the paint program and resize them there. After that i uploaded them to photobucket.

    *Go to your PICTURES (windows photo gallery)in the computer (not photobucket).
    *Click on the pic you want.
    *Click OPEN - PAINT
    *Click IMAGE- RESIZE/SKEW
    Just enter in the first two boxes HORIZONTAL and VERTICAL
    ENTER 50 in each box then click OK or press enter.
    You will have to do this many times. The pic will reduce in size each time.
    *Then click FILE- SAVE AS... (You need to rename the file, i just add an additional number behind it).
    *Then you can upload it to photobucket........when you post it in a thread it will be that size you resized it to.
    HTH. It's really simple, trust me. If you get confused just let me know.

    **If the pic you want is not in your pics on the computer just go to photobucket and Right CLick on the pic and SAVE PICTURE AS

    for some reason resizing on photobucket takes like a day to kick in. i resized my siggy pic and thought i was doin something wrong cuz it was still huge, but then i tried again a day or two later and it was fine. it's pretty weird.

    Thank you for this info. I didn't like the way I was doing it...copyin pics from my myspace page. So, this is perfect. The site was so easy to use. Wow, I learn something new everyday.

    Thanks again.
