How do I insert an image directly into my Post? Not a link

If you want to upload your photo to your post - you cannot. You have to have hosting site that hosts your photos.
However, if you have a direct link to the JPEG (ends with .jpg) you have the picture shown in your post (and not only link). You can follow the instructions on this thread to learn how to get such link from your hosting service.



Not sure why, but that seems like a contradiction. You start out by saying I cannot upload pictures to a post, then state if I have a direct link to a .jpeg file it will be shown in the post. That is quite confusing and contratictory. Shouldn't be this complicated and drawn out, as I have seen in a few of the instructions attempting to explain the procedure. I DO NOT want to insert a link, I want to insert a picture as I have seen in countless posts here. Thank you for the reply all the same..

regards...

Unfortunately you can not insert a picture directly into your post from your computer. It needs to be uploaded to another hosting site (such as Flickr, smugmug etc) first then inserted into your post.

The pictures you see in posts here have been done this way.

If you upload say from Flickr, isn't that a link, which you then have to click on, which will take you to the picture?

With Flickr it can work either way, it depends on the HTML/BBCode provided in the link as to whether the image posted is clickable or not. The important bit is that the image must have a home on the internet somewhere with an address that ends in the .jpeg/.jpg format, and not reside only in your computer, in order to be viewable here on Dyxum.

Ron, are you thinking of a link as a highlighted line of text that you click on that takes you to another site? I think what they're trying to say is that the pictures you see on Dyxum are a linked image, meaning that they have to be uploaded and stored on the internet somewhere in order to show up here as a picture. Am I getting what you are saying right?

This is a link

This is a linked image


Both are held on Photobucket - Dyxum does not store your image (unless it has won a DPC).

See below for how the codes above look in a posting

Ron, I must admit I wasn't sure about what exactly you are asking, and I am still not sure...
If you got your answer, that's great! If not, please try to rephrase your question and be more specific (do you want to upload a photo to Dyxum, or just want to see it in the post?) and I will try to give you more specific answer.

Bob,

I did not know that. It would make sense that you don't want DPC winning photos to disappear over time (or be altered), but how do you capture them? My Flickr account does not allow download of the photo, or so I thought.

Farid, as you know each DPC is accompanied by a set of rules, among other things you can find following (almost at the bottom):

The photos entered remain copyrighted by the original photographer, and by entering you are giving permission for the pic/s to be used on this site only. The winning shot may be used on the front page of the Dyxum.com website and in the DPC Hall of Fame. You will be contacted about any proposed subsequent promotional use on this site of your pic/s.

BTW, once a photo is published (in the sense: displayed in a browser) it can be downloaded. You can try protecting it by obscuring access to it but in the end - it is there in the served content.

Quick info for new flickr layout:

Looking at your own photostream click the photo you want to publish:



Having the photo displayed, click the 'link' icon (nr 1 on the s-shot below)



Then click BBCode (nr 2), then select appropriate size (nr 3; do not select anything larger than 1024 pixels horizontal because Dyxum will re-scale the photo to 1024 pixels anyway - save your Dyxum colleagues some bandwidth), finally select the BBCode (nr 4) copy it to the clipboard and just paste in your post on Dyxum. Please note that this BBCode is a bit 'Baroque' - if you are after the photo only then strip any excessive tags leaving the part starting with [IMG] and ending with [/IMG].

Ahoy!

Using BB code, I can't seem to post external URL's as my Dyxum signature even though the 200 character limit isn't exceeded.

Is this option unavailable on Dyxum or if it is allowed, what's the format type (HTML or other code type)?

Anyone . . please

Plenty of other people have links to their Flickr or whatever in their sig, so it is possible, at least within certain limits.

I've no idea what those limits are.

EDIT: It appears you've fixed whatever the problem was.

Yeah, I found out it's BB code but it doesn't allow for colour, just the basic BB code URL format, so that's what wasn't allowing me to post the URL's as I was including the BB colour codes, thus URL's in signature are all the same colour (seems daft to me but what do I know)?
