Hello,

I very rarely use it: adding pictures to my topics in the forums; but if technical matters become too complex, an image says 1000 words... It would also be the first time since my membership in 2005...

The Tutorial from Gianfranco Manca (Profile section) doesn't seem to work anymore, as I get an adress error when I try to access the folder
http://www.proz.com/home/xxxxxxx/pics/

I need to add a descriptive Print Screen in my topic and would highly appreciate any help about how to achieve this!

Thanks very much for an answer!

Greets,
Mike

Upload your pictures to your Dropbox public folder. When you right-click on them you will get the option to ''copy public address link''. Include the link in the html code. This is what I have for the picture in my profile:

img src="include link here" width=''10'' height=''20'' (with < and > at the beginning and at the end)

Hope this helps.

Thank you, Diana, Aug 18, 2011

with "Dropbox public folder" do you mean the "About Me" window in the Personalization section of your profile?

Mike

ProZ FAQ explains how to add a picture to a forum post here:
http://www.proz.com/faq/forums.html#what_is_bbcode_and_how_can_i_use_it_in_the_forums_

So first you have to upload your picture somewhere public (i.e. to a public Dropbox account, as Diana suggests, or to ImageShack).

Then you enclose your direct link inside [img]...[/img] in the post itself.

Go to www.dropbox.com and create an account. Once created you will have in your account a public folder by default. Upload your picture to that folder and then right-click for the link that you can include in the html code.
