    Insert Pic

    I would like to add a cut out of a picture from time to time as a way of explanation instead of an attachment.
    I can't find how to do this in help.

    Can any one help me with this.,

    Re: Insert Pic

    Dave,

    If you want to insert a picture in a post, there are basically two ways to do it:

    1. You have an image file (for example .gif, .jpg or .png) of less than 100 KB on your hard disk. You can enter the path and file name in the attachment box. If you create a screen shot by pressing Alt+PrintScreen (or PrintScreen), you can start Paint (or IrfanView), paste the screenshot, cut out the relevant part and paste that into a new image, then save that as .png (my favorite), .jpg or .gif (.bmp files are way too large). For example, I have a screenshot for a reply in the Access forum on my hard disk. I have used Browse... to enter its path in the attachment box. This image will be shown at the bottom of the post, below my signature.

    2. If you have an image on a website available to the general public, you can insert it in the body of a post by using the image tag. for example <!t>[image]<!/t>http://wopr.com/lex/lounger.gif<!t>[/image]<!/t> shows as <IMG SRC=http://wopr.com/lex/lounger.gif> in the post. But you can't use this method for images on your local hard disk since Loungers have no access to it (I hope <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>)

    Re: Insert Pic

    Whilst Hans was giving you a perfectly adequate answer, I took the liberty of searching out my original post on grabbing screenshots from my archives! (The original had been removed during the recent cull.) I hope this information overload won't cause any confusion! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    So little <font color=red>x</font color=red>'s wasn't the object of the test? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    You can use the image tags, <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/graphic1.gif> & <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/graphic2.gif>, on the 1-Click TagPanel to insert inline images. The catch is that the image must exist on a server so they can be referred to with a url, eg "http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/graphic1.gif" for the first of the two here. (A bit slow in responding, it seems)

    Re: Insert Pic

    Why in the world did you post this as a continuation of such an old thread, Lonnie? Well, anyway you seem to have gotten what you were after.

    Re: Insert Pic

    hehehe...I couldn't find how to fix it...so I decided to go to Lounge Matters, set it to goback to 1 year (etc), and then looked for anything with the title of userpic as the subject...and voila!...read it, then after I had posted my question and I left, I came back and saw that the Christmas/Lounge elves fixed it. The other reason for posting to this old thread? <IMG SRC=http://users.adelphia.net/~nanalonnie/images/Gifs/All/iamsobored.gif> <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Not so bad an idea to post to an old thread - particularly as we're now getting Search back.

    One thing for sure! When I can click on the "search" link and see something besides the "404" message, I will definitely know the Lounge has been RESTORED!! yee haw! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Then all of our messages - old and new - can be read - used - enjoyed all over again!! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
