    You need to just click the IMG button and copy the link. Upload a picture to IMGUR and get the DIRECT LINK code

    You'll need to "view source" on the page and then look for the jpg link down around line 87 or so of the source code....that's link you want.

    Upload it to Walmart to have it printed, then use some Scotch tape and tape it to your screen.

    Bettar way is to paste the link to the image in your message, then highlight it all and click the img button.

    yourname2000 saidIf it's an image you've already stored on RJ, then the photos on here are a bit more difficult to link to (right click has been disabled.) You'll need to "view source" on the page and then look for the jpg link down around line 87 or so of the source code....that's the link you want.

    Thanks, I didn't know that trick! To help me find the jpg link I looked for id="previous" which is the code for the button that appears directly below the pic (after you open and enlarge it from your RJ profile). A few lines above that is the jpg file in parens that you copy. Here's a pic from my RJ profile:

    It also works with the pics from other members' profiles, for example yours:

    Yes, they could force you to do everything in ASCII.

    For a pic from your computer go to tinypic.com http://tinypic.com/

    Click on 'browse' to view images from your computer and select the image you want to upload. If it is too large for the forum, click on 'resize' to choose a smaller size (or a larger size if too small). Next click on 'upload'. Fill in the captcha words and then you will get four choices of codes. Copy the code for 'Direct Link for Layouts' (tinypic's 'IMG Code for Forums and Message Boards' will not work here because they use a capitalized IMG instead of lowercase img). Paste it your post and you get something like this:

    http://i39.tinypic.com/ojm78g.jpg


    Highlight the code and then click on the 'img' box that appears above when you are making a new post and the correct tags will added for you. You can click on 'preview message' to make sure you did it correctly and then if you are happy, click on submit. Your pic will then appear in the post:

    It's actually not nearly as complicated as it sounds.

    Lol. I taught myself how to read this stuff when I was new to myspace back in 2005. It's not too difficult. Just look for patterns, consistencies and us logic to determine what makes the most sense from the least amount of data.

    Quote it from someone else's posts in the forum? Unless, you've figured it out for yourself by now.

    I was going to do a screencast that visually explains how to post images.
    But it's more entertaining to read all these replies so far. icon_lol.gif

    congrats, richx!


    It so isn't complicated.

    Use the Realjock Banner for example at the top of this page.

    In Firefox,
    1. Right click on the image and click Copy Image Location.
    2. When you are writing your message, right click where you want the image to be placed and choose Paste.
    3. Highlight the URL you just pasted (left-click and drag so the whole thing is selected).
    4. Click on the "img" button above.

    In Internet Explorer,
    1. Right click on the image and click Properties.
    2. In the window that pops up, look next to "URL", highlight the whole thing from http to the end (left-click and drag to highlight text).
    3. Right-click on the URL you just highlighted and click Copy.
    4. When you are writing your message, right click where you want the image to be placed and choose Paste.
    3. Highlight the URL you just pasted within the message.
    4. Click on the "img" button above.


    Try it out and post here!
