Can you tell me the bet way to put an image oONI take it its <Img src=””> with URL in the speech marks but where is best place to gt this URL fromOctober 3, 2012 at 10:04 am #1099
You can use various places to store your image – upload it to your gallery on this site, or put it on a media-storing web site like Image Shack or Flickr.
To get the URL for a photo in your gallery:
1) Open your gallery from the menu bar (Galleries > Members’ Galleries > click on your own name > click ‘Gallery’)
2) At the bottom of the box for your gallery, click [Edit]
3) Click the ‘Edit Media’ tab
4) double click the photo you want – it opens full size
5) right-click on it, and select ‘Copy Image URL’ from the context menu. (Your computer may have a slightly different wording for this.)
To get the image from Image Shack:
Use only the URL in ‘Direct Link‘ or in the ‘HTML code‘ options – the others won’t work here.
To get the image from Flickr:
1) Open the image in Flickr and click ‘Share’ (just above the photo)
2) Copy the HTML code for Medium 640, paste the lot into your post here, but remove everything except the URL from there. Then put it in quotes in the ‘img src’ tag in the usual way.
Hope this helps.
There’s now a much simpler way to put the URL into your posts. Just switch to the HTML screen (by clicking its tab above the Editor window). Then click the button marked ‘img’ and put the URL into the form you get. Switch back to Visual to see your image in the post.

You have to use the URL (i.e. the link) to the image itself, not to the page on Flickr that’s displaying it.
On Flickr, you get the correct URL by clicking ‘Share’ above the photo. Then use Grab the HTML/BBCode and extract the link to the image file. It ends .jpg
The one you need for your image is
When you write your post, switch to the HTML screen, and click the button marked ‘img’ and put the URL in when asked. (Copying and pasting is easiest.)
Switch back to Visual. It will then look like this:

(I’ve moved a reply by Meg across to Critique Requests, where she had intended it to be. Its new topic there is ‘Portrait’.)October 29, 2012 at 1:06 pm #1651
Miss d that is reslly really niceOctober 29, 2012 at 1:42 pm #1655
Agree with you there Paul it really is a soft nicely captured image.October 30, 2012 at 4:04 pm #1663
Thank you kindly Meg and Paul. I have actually desaturated in a sort of vignette way the outer edges just as an experiment but think that I would be better cutting out the girl and balloons and layering on top of a softer image. I am my own worst critic as are we all I suspect.October 30, 2012 at 5:31 pm #1667
Yes I know you are I think if we believe in our capibilites we’d do so much better. But then we are Brtish. So your doing well girl.November 3, 2012 at 11:54 am #1775
Many thanks for the PDF document Ian. It makes everything a lot clearer in one place. I will now upload photos into my CPS gallery and then use the link to there in the critic section.
