Since we're on it, here's how I upload images from my computer.
I'm pretty IT challenged and there's most probably an easier way. And I'd be very happy to hear it!
This is for my photos and stuff, stored on my pc. There's a different process, and potential copyright issues, for online images.
I save images to my computer, upload them to photobucket, then hit the 'IMG' option, copy and paste into the permies reply box and get:

I have mysterious red dotted lines around my images. Ideas?

Leila, I don't see any red lines (I'm colorblind so...) but I use imgur most of the time for photos, quick and easy, don't need an account. You doing the same process I use though. I think you can upload photos directly to the forums by clicking the Attachments tab, next to Options beneath the text field. I don't think you can control where in your post the photo will show up though, always at the end, and limited to three photos per post.

You are correct, you can attach a picture to a post but it will be at the end of the post. However, it is possible to use that picture in other thread using the "img" tag.

Adrien just explained to me that the red lines are part of the safe links download I have, where links that admin people haven't okd as 'safe' are highlighted.
Actually, handy add-ons etc could be another thread in the new tinkering series

Success! It does work!

Thanks guys for having this discussion. Took me a while to find it doing a search, but I see pics everywhere and was like, "why can't I?" As it turned out, the image wont show until you actually save the post. Not seeing it in the preview, I thought I was doing something wrong.

There's actually a bunch of ways to post pictures on permies. Here's ONE way of posting inline pictures to your posts (as opposed to attaching them to the bottom of the post). For some folks, using some browsers, there are easier ways to do this. But this is the "in case all else fails" method.

************************

Ever wonder how to get images to show up in the body of your post at permies.com and not at the end of the post? Here's how to do that.

Preliminary preparation:

1. The image you want to insert MUST ALREADY BE ON THE INTERNET SOMEPLACE, it cannot be stored on your personal computer. This is because the "Img" tag refers back to the web address of that image.

2. If the image you want to post is NOT on the internet, you can open a free account at one of the many photo-sharing websites. See a list of sites here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_photo-sharing_websites.

To Copy the Image Location:

1. Start a new post on Permies.com. Note: you must start a new post in order to see the "Img" button at the top of the screen.

2. Locate the image on the internet that you want to insert into your post. Right click on it to bring up the shortcut menu. For this example, I'll be using the image of my outdoor shower which I posted on my blog.



3. On the shortcut menu, left click on the "Properties" option at the bottom of the list.



4. The "Properties" window will open. This is where you will find the URL (web address) for the image.



5. Many URL names are quite long and often don't display fully in the "Properties" window. To make sure you copy the full URL, use the left mouse button to triple click on the URL. This will highlight the whole URL. Then press Ctrl + C to copy the URL.



5. Once you've copied the URL, close the "Properties" window by clicking on the red X in the upper right corner.

Inserting the Image into your Permies.com post:

1. Now that the URL for the image you want to display is copied, go back to your post where you want to insert it. Put the cursor in the location you want the image to appear and click the "Img" button at the top of the screen.



2. The Image box will appear.



3. Select Ctrl + V to paste the URL into the white box. This will replace the http:// (which is already highlighted).



4. Click "OK". The Image box will disappear and the image code will appear in your post. (Notice the

Preview your image

1. To ensure you've copied and pasted the correct URL and that the image displays the way you would like it to; you can Preview your post to see what the image will look like prior to submitting.

2. Scroll to be bottom of your post and select the "Preview" button.



3. A preview of your post will appear ABOVE the area where you were typing (if you scroll down, you’ll see your original post is still there – it hasn’t been submitted yet).



Yep, that's the image I wanted!

4. To go back and add more information to your post, more pictures, or to make changes, simply scroll down to your original message and make the changes and additions.

5. You can keep editing and previewing until you're happy with the way your post looks. Once you're satisfied, select the "Submit" button.

Pssst. It's the internet. We can't see where the spandex is bulging. You could even be a dog fond of permaculture.

I posted a bunch of pictures with links from drop box. None of them work. ;(

I opened a flickr account and posted them there, and can't figure out how to get the URL from flickr photos. Any tips?

For Flickr. Click on the photo. Click on the share (curvy arrow). Make sure HTML is selected. Copy the link. Post it in the text box of the Reply.
Looks like this


Preview to see if it shows up.

I never heard of the triple click before May be why some of my pictures failed to link.
I was going back and forth with edit on my last post I will try staying in preview next time.
I was posting from Picasa and right clicking on the thumbnail which resulted in posting the thumbnail. [to small] I finally got one full size; now I have to figure how I did it.
