How can you put a pic on a message board...

  cham 11:25 21 Apr 2004

I go on a few message boards and would like to know how you can put a pic for others to see on the board?
The message board does say HTML only but others have managed to put pics on. I have tried the copy/paste route but to no avail.

If your ISP allows you some free webspace, you can upload images using FTP software from your PC.

Then using the same FTP program, download your image to your forum or message board.

I think that you will need to create a link with html code pointing to the picture; one way to find out is to right click on anothers image to get the properties and then from there you can see how it was done.

You can use this site, upload your pictures there and then copy and paste the code into the relevant forums.
click here
I have used them in the past, and it is quite easy to do. I think you are allowed to upload 10 for free. Might be worth a visit.

I've done it on one message board. The picture had to be on an internet site (in my case my personal web page) then it was just a case of copying and pasting the link in a similar way to the "click here" which appears on this board.

If you want to post one of your own pictures/photos or anything created by yourself on a forum or message board you will need an html address for the Pic. There are many Photo hosting sites which offer this service and describe in detail how this is done, click here for instance, but you will have to subscribe for the service.
