Images

First of all, the image must be somewhere on the net. Many people use Photobucket ( http://photobucket.com/). The image must be in a format the site can read. I know that .png images will not work. If the image is in a .png format, you can use an image manipulation program (MS Paint, Photoshop, etc.) to change the image to a .gif or .jpg format.

Images can be taken from existing websites. You may need to save the image to your computer and upload it somewhere on the web because some webmasters don’t allow hotlinking (direct linking to images) or the website may be changed and your image may disappear.

Getting Images From The Web

Let’s post the picture of Joss from the FireFoxFans.net home page.






In Firefox, Right-click on the image, go to “Copy Image Location” and click. This puts the address of the image in your clipboard.






In Internet Explorer, right-click on the image and take your curser to “Properties” and left-click.



A “Properties” box will pop up.



With your curser, highlight the Address: (URL) and right-click (or right click on the address and go to Select All).



Take the curser to “Copy” and left-click.



This puts the address of the image in your clipboard.


Posting the Image

Now that you have the image address, go to the thread where you want to place the image. Right-click inside the “Your Response” box. A pop-up box will appear.



Take the curser down to “Paste,” left-click, and the image address should appear.



A note…this method only works at Fireflyfans.net. On most web sites, the use of “image tags” is required.


Posting an Image From Photobucket

Note...Photobucket has recently changed so all you need to do is left click the URL LINK you want and the link will be copied to your clipboard. Then follow the instructions in Posting the Image.

If you have a Photobucket account (or are “borrowing” an image), go to the image.



Left-click on the “Url” address to highlight…



Right-click to bring up the pop-up box and left-click on copy.



Then follow the instructions in Posting the Image.


Avatars

Recently a couple of our members discovered a way to allow us to have our own avatars!



Avatar images are different from other images you can post on FFF.net because they require the use of image tags. Image tags are characters around the image link that allow the image to be seen.

The image tags that are needed for avatars are before the image link (no spaces) and after the image link (again, no spaces).

Posting the Avatar

Go to “MY FIREFLY” and then to “EDIT PROFILE” under “MEMBER OPTIONS.” In the “Tag:” box, enter the image link with the image tag. You can also add text.



You also need to choose the “None” option under the “Avatar” section. The original avatar you chose may still show up until you clear your browser cache.

Excellent tutorial! Kudos to the Pen-guin (sorry I was channeling Pauly Shore there for a minuto).

I think this will be great for those that are a little "less than comfortable" with all things techie!

Some of you're tags example tags are disappearing, try surrounding the brackets in open close brackets and it should appear properly

This is me trying to test this out. Does it work the same way with signatures? Do we need the IMG tag to post pictures in thread and/or signatures? It seems we don't according to the tutorial but I'm just making sure, 'cause I'm easily confused. :)

Let's see how this posting image in sig thing works. A River-inspired collection of icons I made...

Hey just thought i'd let you know; if you want to save time, rather than go to the properties and so forth you can right click and go to copy image location then paste that in your comment. This may only be with Firefox though, i'm not sure.

Yes, I do that with Firefox. I don't actually go to an image's properties to see its url.

And thanks, Penguin. So we actually don't need the tags. I've tested and it all seems fine. Great tutorial!
