View Full Version : Possible to post photographs?
05-09-2005, 6:48 PM
I have an old photograph of soldiers of the Queens Own Lancashire Regiment in India, one of whom is a relative. Can I post it on a forum to see whether anyone can identify others in the photograph and something about the regiment and their posting in India c. 1895?

these are the instructions that the forum administrator gave for putting pictures into messages - just trying to attach them to messages doesn't work.
Upload a picture file to your own web space or web page.
Use your browser to go to that page.
Hover over the picture, and right click the mouse
On the drop down list, click on "Properties"
A window pops up on screen
Drag your mouse over the Address (URL)
hold down CTRL key and tap C (that's the same as "copy"
(it will look something like this: http://www.rod-neep.co.uk/graphics/group3-t250.gif
Then when posting a message... select the "Insert Image" icon (It looks like a little mountain with a sun - a picture)
A window pops up asking for that URL
Hold down the CTRL key and tap the "v" key (that's the same as "paste")
and then this happens... the picture appears in your message.
hope this helps

Just a couple of points to add to what Ladkyis has posted.
1) To see that little icon, you need to be in at least the Standard Editor. If you cannot see the icon, go to User CP, then to Edit Options, scroll to the bottom panel, and change the box to (at least) Standard Editor.
2) We have just found out in the Essex Forum that if you are using an MSN storage facility to store your pictures online, you will be the only one that can see them. Try something like Photobucket, or Flickr, or your own ISP's space to store the pics.
(I like old pics - check out my photobucket from the link in my profile, feel free to wander around.)
