4. Technical Jargon Part. 2

How to embed an image into your post

If you want to embed an image into your post, rather than add as an attachment, do the following:

The first step is to upload an image from your computer to an online image hosting site, such as Imageshack or Tinypic. When you have done this, retrieve the link or direct link to the image.

When adding a reply, click on the icon circled in the image below, entitled 'INSERT IMAGE.' Then a box will appear: here is where you will paste the direct link to your image.



This will then appear as, for example:

CODE
[img]http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/2640/26218782.png[img]

(Typing the above manually will also achieve the same result.)

and it should appear like this when you submit or preview the post:



For further information about your account and how to hotlink in your posts, see FAQ.

For a great explanation on other things you will come across while adding a reply to a thread, visit Popogeejo's fantastic guidelines to 'add reply' for beginners and veterans alike. This goes through the different functions you will find- such as what you can insert within a post and information regarding fonts, and previewing your post.
