How to insert an image?

133 posts in this topic

This code will not work on the General Discussions forum, but it will work on other forums:

 

To make photos smaller, use this resizing code:

 

<img src= height =400 width =300>

 

Put the photo URL address just after the first equal sign =

 

Leave no space after = and leave one space before the word "height". Like this:

 

<img src=http://i30.tinypic.com/14vh5bb.jpg height =400 width =300>

 

Change the numbers to make your photo more or less high and more or less wide.

 

Go here to test your photos. It might take two or three tries to get your size numbers right:

At 400 height and 300 width, the result is this:

This small one is 100 high and 75 wide:

Yes, they need to already be uploaded to the web. I use tinypic myself.

 

Remember that in General Discussions, due to some strange glitch, the usual code doesn't work, so you just use exclamation marks on each end.

1. How do I insert my picture on my profile? Where?

2. How do I insert a picture of a star where there is only the icon now?

3. Am I able to use Photobucket?

On the message boards, images are not allowed in profiles such as avatars or signatures. The Classic Film Union allows for them and you can upload all kinds of images there quite easily. At the top of the page on black tool bar is Fan Community. The first one underneath is Classic Film Union. As long as you're a member here, you don't have to sign up, you're already registered!

 

As for here, you don't reall need to place the image into photobucket, but just remember not to place images that will stretch the page (600x600 pixels is the limit).

 

While you are posting, to the right of where you type is a table called Plain Text Help. It will help you with the coding for putting up images. Basically you place an "!" (w/o the parenthesis) in front of and after (w/o spacing) to the link of the image and it should appear.

 

Hope this helps!

You need to reduce the size of your photo in order to post it here. Use this code and use the PLAIN TEXT format.

 

<img src=http://i55.tinypic.com/106wmq0.jpg height =275 width =500>
