Default How to post a pic on another Member's page

If you are new here, or new to posting pictures, or just having trouble with the site icons and instructions, this might help if you are trying to leave a nice picture on another member's home page.

Go to the person's page and work from there.

If the picture is on your hard drive, you will have to load it into an Album on PC, before you can post it. There is a tutorial for this, but briefly, open the New Albums, use Browse, select the picture on your computer, and select Upload, Name and Save.

If the picture is from a web site, you need to know how to Copy and Paste: these are tools accessed with the mouse buttons. (Left click is usually with your first finger, the most common one; Right click is with the middle finger, for hidden menus, generally.)

First you must isolate the web picture from it's home page. Right Click on the picture to see if it goes to a "stand alone" page, with an address in the search bar that ends with .jpg, .gif, .img, or other 3 letter codes. html will NOT work. Sometimes you have to left click and select Copy URL. a URL is the web address. If you see it when you Paste the pic onto PC, it will NOT open.

How to COPY a URL (web address): using the Right Button on the mouse, hold it down and drag it over the WHOLE address of the image you want to use. This will highlight (turn blue) the address. Right Click on that and select COPY from the little drop down menu. (It will be saved in your computer's short term memory.)

Once you have the pic all by itself, and the URL copied, go back to the member page and above the space where you type, you will see a little box with mountains and a moon in it, right above the letterbox with all the other options. How to post a pic on another Member's pagehttp://pcf2.psychcentral.com/images/...nsertimage.gif " />. Click on this box and a long narrow window will open. Inside it will be [http:// ] highlighted in blue. Be sure not to undo the highlight by clicking on it~! With the [http:// ] highlighted in blue, put your mouse cursor in the box and left click, and select PASTE. You should see the URL appear in that box with "http://" at the beginning, and your .jpg, .gif, .img or other .3letter code at the end. Click OK.

Your picture's address with the code How to post a pic on another Member's page (at the end) should appear in the letter box. I cannot type in a picture code to show you as an example of what this should look like, because it will come out as a picture, and not as an example~!

I hope this has been helpful, and you enjoy sending and receiving many pictures from your PC friends~

Gus

Default Re: How to post a pic on another Member's page

more briefly, how to post a picture from Google:

from Google, you have to isolate the pic, so that the URL showing at the top in the search box ends in .jpg or .gif or .jpeg, or one of those picture identifiers.
you can usually get there by clicking on the image and it will come up in a new window. do NOT use "Copy URL" UNTIL you have the image isolated.

once you see a clear address (URL) for the pic, THEN you right click and on the menu select "Copy URL". take that to the place you want to put it. in PC you MUST use the little box at the top of all type windows that is yellow with mountains and a moon in it. click on that, click in the type window that appears (this will highlight the 'http:/' that is already there, so that it disappears when you paste), and right click to PASTE the images address (URL) into that single line box.
click OK

check the address that is now in the place where you want the picture. it should have [IMG] before and after it, and only ONE http:/ in it. watch out for Photobucket, it's images disappear in 24 hrs. and try to avoid addresses that come from any site that ends in .ru (russia), as they love to embed viruses. China's a little trickier.

finally, below the type window, click Submit Reply or Send, and your BB (Bracketed) code will turn into a picture~!

happy Posting ~!
Gus

Default Re: How to post a pic on another Member's page

another way of saying it: i do so love seeing people able to post pics~!

some browsers seem to be a little different than others, but none are so different as Psych Central (PC) ~!

if you look above the large box where you type in messages, (on anyone's profile page or even a forum), you will see a little square box with mountains and a yellow sky and moon/sun? that is where you have to put the picture's address (URL), AND it has to be just right, or it won't post.

you might practice in your own private messages where no one can see mistakes . i use Google. i just type in the search bar: Images, cats; i haz cheeze; or animated dogs; whatever i am looking for. (i'm well known for my flowers.) click GO.

when the web page comes up you might have to select Images again, depends on the phase of the moon or something . if you get a whole roll of pictures you're on the right track. scroll down til you find one you like. pics that say .gif are supposed to be animated or glitter, but they sometimes don't.

you ALWAYS have to isolate the pic you want to a single page of it's own! (use View Image on the main pic page.) when you get it on it's own (check before you do that to see what size it is, things over 1200x800 don't do well on PC) look up in the Search bar to check it's URL (address). it should end in .jpg or .jpeg, or .img, or .gif, etc. ... if it ends in anything else it won't post right, usually.

and there are pits, like Photobucket (disappears after 24 hrs) and fanpop, .ru instead of .com on the main pic page (usually from russia and often loaded with viruses). you may have a steep learning curve with those tricky addresses. one way to get around that is click on the pic and when it's large on the main page, click on "Search by Image". this will give you more sizes and sites. my favorites are Wordpress, Pinterest, GooglePlus, etc. you might like FaceBook,,, any of the big sites that screen for viruses for you. i also use WOT, a site screening program, and my web page virus program has saved me many times.

ok, so let's say you have a main page of images, you have selected one, isolated it, and it says .jpg at the end of the address in the Search bar (YaY). next you Right Click either on the picture or on the address and 'Copy URL'. THEN you go to your PC site page and look for that little box with the mountain in it.

Left Click on that little box, and a Search Box-like narrow window will open. (for some reason, sometimes i get a menu, probably from Right Click-ing.) click INSIDE the typing box, and it will highlight the 'http://' (if that isn't already done). you MUST NOT have 2 'http://'s.! when you click OK.

when you click OK, your URL should transfer to the post page with an image code in front of, and behind it: How to post a pic on another Member's page (actually, if you hate all that clicking, you can just type in the image code around any pic URL~!) chances are real good that my image code is gonna translate, so let me put it WRONG but viewable... [ IMG ].... URL.... [/IMG] (maybe that will stay.)

i know this is all horribly confusing until you get it right a couple of times, and it's so much easier to do with live chat. but do let me know what was the hardest thing to understand and i'll try to put it another way.

EXAMPLE: https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...ts%2C%20images

then: https://www.google.com/search?q=cats...B0QsAQ&dpr=1.5

then: http://www.wired.com/wp-content/uplo.../10/cathug.jpg

then FINALLY to make it a pic, post that last URL into the mountain box:

How to post a pic on another Member's page

and click OK. now you are ready to post. (look over your URL to make sure it doesn't have 2 http://'s.)

i hope that came out understandably. i haven't tried typing in those URL's before. still learning myself

best wishes~
Gus
