PIP tutorial [AKA How to post pics without looking like a NOOB]

Apparently some people are still having difficulty inserting pics into their posts. So a little run through of how to do it.

 

When you go to post this screen comes up, and you click on the icon of the tree.

image 

This screen will pop up. You paste the URL in the black highlighted box. If you click Insert and the photo is super huge you can click the tree icon again and adjust the dimensions in the red box.

image 

Or click the photo on the bottom right corner and a tiny box will appear to where you can drag the corner up or down to make it larger or smaller. It will usually fit appropriately in the post if you can make the horizontal bar at the bottom of the post go away.

Any questions please ask.

I do this because I love you.

  • You should hyperlink this thread in your siggy for future reference in case it comes up again...as it inevitably will! 

    Lol, then you can just be like "instructions below!  get it right!"

  • when I put a picture in a post all I do is go to tiny pic.com and upload the photo and choose the picture I want out of my pictures on my computer and pic the size for message board, then copy and paste the url right into the body of the post. the tree does not work for me due to I usually am pulling my photos from mypictures off my desktop and do not have a url for it.

    Instead of using the [img][slashimg] thing you can use the tree icon and then resize. Your photo isn't extremely huge but the message board size doesn't always fit on TB. IDK how you can drag them from your desktop to a post though.

    Actually, the toolbar in it's entirety doesn't work when you use Google Chrome, and I don't know about other ladies, but I'm not willing to give up faster web browsing to use the silly toolbar on a single outdated message board format that doesn't support the top 3 browsers Smile

    I believe this message board doesn't support safari either, fyi Apple users.

    I use Firefox and it is both fast and the silly toolbar works.
