Hey everybody,
For starters Happy Holidays and all that stuff.

I've had a couple of requests to help people post pictures either in messages or as their avatar, the little pic off to the left.

So, I thought it might be nice to have a thread just for that?

I'm also going to edit this to include a set of instructions and list of different image hosters. *I personally like photobucket because they also have the img and you can just cut and paste it without having to mess with the img buttons here.

The first thing your going to need before you can post a picture is a place to host them online. Most website providers like Angelfire & Tripod will not let you link to your files on their servers so this type of thing won't work. You need to find a host that specializes in pictures & there are many that are free.

Once you are ready to post your pics. go to

http://www.backwoodshome.com/forum/y...insertpic.html

to learn how to put put the picture on the Forum.

I learned by using the "test" board. First, you upload the picture to a website. I use "Tinypic.com" - its free, and they tell you how to do it. Note the link, or have them email it to you - their links are only five letters long, so you want to make sure you don't mistake an "O" for a zero, or a "One" for an "L" - in lower case, sometimes it's hard to tell!

THEN - when it's posted, you start your post here and use the picture icon (fourth from the left, bottom row of BBC tags above your entry box.)

Here's my best portrait - back in 1952, before I got old fat and ugly. (Note that I was a couch tomato even back then!) ;D



This will insert this: img]URL[/img *(I removed the start and end brackets - *[ ] - so it would print the type rather than paste in the image icon!)

You take out the "URL" part and type or paste in the link to your picture. If all goes well, you'll see the picture when you click the post button on the "Post Reply" box.

If it works in "TEST" it'll work up here too. Be sure to delete the test when you're done!

hello everyone,

First of all I want to wish you a Happy New Year and hope all your wishes come true. *Well here is my picture.

I'm in the woods most days but I always take the time to find out what's the latest in the homesteading world at backwoodshome. If I can ever be of any help in finding you a homesteading property in New Brunswick, Canada, please let me know and again, the best of the season to one and all.

This is, Suzy, or "BamaSuzy" the day I went to the Cumberland General Store in Tennessee to get my spinning wheel. The cat lived under their porch.

Pretty darn good instructions if it worked. I am now an official Photobucketeer! Anyway, this is what you look like when you have been on the desert way too long.

These are somewhat older pictures. I've lost a little more size since my pictures was taken. Actually, my avatar is also my picture. LOL

Yes, I did a silly thing. For fun, I bleached my hair out, and dyed it funny colors. Everyone loved it. It was just so fun to do. Although, Spooky has more than his fair share of hair in this picture, he usually shaves his head, both for the military, and for comfort. I just love this pic of him though, because he looks like a "Deranged Keebler Elf". LMAO!!!! The postoffice ladies decided Spooky and I had the town hairdo awards all to ourselves. Hehehehehehehe
