I feel pretty dumb for asking this, And seeing what I have seen in the Forums lately I know this will go the wrong direction and I might not get any help at all but I will try.

I want to add a picture to a thread that isn't on line so I dont have an HTTP. So the little yellow box with the mountain in it doesnt help. I thought that I could just copy and paste but for some reason that isnt working. Like for example I posted a deer today that was in my front yard. I took a pic. and wanted to just post it in the thread but it wouldnt copy and paste. Help, If you can.

Thanks

Dave

OK - I'll be nice...

When you post your message, you've got the "task bar" above the text space. Among those little icons is a "paper clip". Click on that and you'll have the option of adding an attachment.

Like so:

(Not sure if this is the best way - but it works...) :D :D

Just use a service like Photobucket (http://www.photobucket.com/), upload your picture to that and use the URL link it gives you and use the "little yellow box with the mountain in it".
It's that simple! :cool:

Actually... to make it REAL SIMPLE.... once you uploaded your pic on any host on the web, for instance: Freeimagehosting.com and you want to ad it to a forum, type then the link to the picture (no spaces) then type and the picture will show up like how I post it. Thats http format.

Here is a simple whay to do it. Go to the image you want to display viewing it online with your browser. Not put your curser over the image and right click you mouse nad them click on properties.

Where it says ADDRESS you may see something like this: http://www.geocachingmaine.org/logos/GM-large.gif.

Using you mouse left click in front of that and holding down the left click drag it accross the http://www.geocachingmaine.org/logos/GM-large.gif and when you get to the end let the left click go. The phrase should be highlighted.

With the phrase highlighted right click on the pharse and then click copy.

Now when you go to make a post click on the picture image in on the top and it will ask you for the URL now paste the url into this window.

Well, I don't know... "Mouse 'nads". Hmmm... Is that a Maine equivalant to Rocky Mountain Oysters? Or an ingredient in a Litchfield turkey stuffing? :eek: :eek:

I kinda liked the old way, it gives each person their own character and we all know pretty much what we are talking about anyway. Besides we don't have to use it if we don't want to.....lol :rolleyes:

Rick - I was just teasing. It's fun to decipher the code languages that are spoken.

Yes, there are many dialects used in Maine. We in central Maine joke about the funny accent "y'all" have in the south. And, SHEESH!, those guys in "The County" can't write 2 sentences without mentioning potatoes!

But we like you anyway... :D :D :D
