You'll need to get the Image Location (or URL) of the picture. There are a number of ways to do this:
Simply right click over the image and select "Copy Image Location". You can also right click and select "Open Image in a New Window", and when the new window opens you can highlight and copy the URL address.
Right click and select "Properties", then select the URL of the image
The Image Location or URL will look something like this:
Then go to ChitChat and in your new post you'll paste that location in between these two tags (without the spaces):
[ i m g ] [ / i m g ]
So you it looks like (again, without the spaces)
[ i m g ] http://www.fanchitch...smilemonkey.gif [ / i m g ]
And you'll get
TO POST A PICTURE THAT IS CURRENTLY ON YOUR COMPUTER:
This is a bit trickier. You'll need to put the picture file that is on your computer onto a free website so they'll "host" your picture and you can use their URL. The one I use is www.webshots.com - it's totally free. Go to that site and set up your account. Make sure when you set it up you have your pictures "open to public" so the rest of us can see it.
Once you have your webshots account set up:
- From your webshots home page, click on "Add New Album", then fill out the spaces (like name, category, etc.) and click okay.
- After you've clicked "okay", you'll see a button that says "browse". Click it, then find the picture on your computer and click "okay". You'll see the name of your picture in the little text box, click "Upload" button that's to the right of it.
- It will ask you to give your picture a title, call it whatever you want, then click "okay".
- You'll be shown a thumbnail size of your picture (thumbnail = little picture). Click "view" button just underneath it to make it bigger. Once the bigger size comes up, you'll want to right click and select "Copy Image Location". Now follow the same instructions above to past that Image Location in between the [ i m g ] tags!
If anyone has any other image hosting sites they can recommend, feel free to post them below!
