espressojoe -> RE: New to EBSQ? Say hello! (12/18/2009 7:49:08 PM)
First of all, WELCOME TO EBSQ!!!
Second, I LOVE your jewelry!! We have many many great jewelry artists on here, so you will be in great company!
For posting pics to the forum, you can’t directly upload a picture to the forum, it has to already be on the web somewhere, like in your EBSQ profile.
I’ll use one of yours as an example.
From your profile, I opened the item page here:
On the main picture (the top picture), there is a little maginifying glass icon in the lower right corner, I clicked on that to enlarge the photo:
Next, I use my mouse to right click on the photo and “drag” it into the web address bar at the top of the page (the place you type in www.etc....)
That gives you an address for a large copy of your pic:
In the forums, when you “Post a thread” or “Post a reply”, there is a little yellow icon on the line above of the box you type in. It is on the far right hand side. The actuall icon is different depending on what browser your computer uses, so it may or may not be yellow, bur if you position your mouse over it, it should say “add image”.
Click on that image and it will bring up a pop up window that reads “Enter Image URL:”
Here, type in (or copy and paste in), the address above (http://www.ebsqart.com/Art/36446/622588.jpg)
And it should show your image like this:
If you want a smaller pic, follow the same steps, but don’t click on the magnifying glass icon on your image, just drag the small pic to your web address bar. You will end up with an image like this:
Sorry if I have over-simplified this, but when I was new to the forums, I needed things over simplified and became frustrated when people didn’t give me step-by-step instructions, so I want to make sure if you are web-naïve as I am, you can still do it!
I used the EBSQ portfolio as an example, but you can get pic addresses from any website and use this method!
Hope this helps and again, welcome to EBSQ!!!
