Before you can post a picture here, you will need to make sure that it is uploaded onto a picture hosting website. There are several free sites that you can use, such as Photobucket, Imagehosting123.

Once you have uploaded your picture, you will be able to post it here. When you look at your images, you'll see that there are 3 lines of text associated with each picture. To post a picture on here, you will need to use the one that starts with [IMG]. Simply copy the entire line of text, and paste it into your post.

I copied and pasted the URL into my address window, and the pic came up, but it was really small...

I'm not familiar with that webhosting site, so I can't give you any real pointers... Perhaps someone else can...

KnitKitty....I'm not great at this, and Kathryn may correct me, but you get to the comment box and first click the little box above that says IMG, then paste the address of where your picture is stored, then click the IMG box again.

Practice it.........you can't hurt anything if you do something wrong and you can always preview it before you submit it.
Very Happy

If you'd prefer to post smaller pictures, then click on the "share" option in Photobucket, then the "get link code" and you'll see an option for "clickable thumbnail". If you use that, then your post will show a smaller image that can be clicked to show the full-size version.

Thanks Kathryn. I've seen the share option but didn't realise what it was for.

This is the instruction Kathryn had shared with us....I hope it helps; if not....let us know.

When you look at your images, you'll see that there are 3 lines of text associated with each picture. To post a picture on here, you will need to use the one that starts with [IMG]. Simply copy the entire line of text, and paste it into your post.
