I want to put more pictures in my topics as well as my reviews. I see others do this all the time, but I have no idea how they do it.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

I really enjoy quilting. I love to play with fabrics, colors and pictures. I recently discovered how much fun applique can be. As I love making pictures, landscape quilting can be challenging, but seeing the picture come to life is so rewarding.

This is for adding photos to Message Board messages:

1. Hit the Reply or Post a New Message button, circled in the photo below.



2. This will open a new pop-up window similar to that shown below. (You do need to allow pop-ups for the PatternReview.com website.)

Type your message/reply. When you reach the spot in your message where you want to insert a photograph, click the Image button (circled below).



3. This will open a prompt into which you type the URL for the photo. (See below.) The photo must already be online somewhere, either in your PR Album, or another online album or webpage. Use the URL for the image itself, not the webpage that the image is on.

In Windows Explorer (and maybe other browsers?), to get the URL for the photo embedded into a webpage, right-click on the photo and choose "Properties." The URL will be shown on the resulting pop-up. Use your mouse to swipe/highlight the URL, and copy the URL to the clipboard.



4. Paste or type the exact URL for the photograph. My example is highlighted in yellow below. Make sure there are no typos. If there are typos or the URL is incorrect, the photograph will not show.



5. Click OK, after you've made sure the URL is correct. See below.



6. When the URL prompt window closes, the HTML code will be pasted into your message at the end of the message, as shown below. If you want the photo HTML code to sit between text you've already typed, you will need to cut it from the end and paste it where you want it to be.



7. The completed example process yields this photo. (Hi Carol!).

Wow! You continually impress me! I am so amazed at you. Thank you.

I copied this and I will have to 'fill in the blanks' as the screen cut off about 20% of it on the right side of the screen.

I should be able to figure this out. I would love some feedback on the knit pants I am working on, and I wanted to show the 'clown butt' pictures, as well as sides and front. when I figure this out, I will be able to do so.

Carol, thank you so much for asking this question! I've been absolutely baffled & defeated by this particular function!



Debbie, bless your lovely, wonderful & so generous heart! This is exactly the kind of step-by-step illustration I need for this to work for me!

Debbie, one more deep bow of gratitude and look of awe from the ranks of the computer impaired.

This puts me one step closer to a review. Can't thank you enough.

What do I do if I don't have a location that has a URL? In other words, most of my pictures are in My Pictures and we no longer are using our own website (yursoftware.org). I have no clear idea why DH is not using it, but I do not have access anymore. We are trying to set up one on Verizon. I am not sure when he will get it done for me.

If he gets it set up, then I can continue. I guess, until we get something like that, I can't add more pictures or show views in my posts for help?

Carol, check out an image hosting site like Photobucket. After registering (it's free!) you can go into your account and upload pictures to your heart's content. There's a "browse" button that if you click on it, you can get into your "My Pictures" folder and pick what you want. Then under the uploaded picture you highlight everything in the box labeled "URL" and do the rest as above. I'm not as cool as Debbie, so no nifty diagrams, but it's fairly simple.

Other posters here use different hosting sites of course, but I've found photobucket to be fairly intuitive. Hope this helps some.

If an image is on the internet, it has a URL.
If you can't see it on the web page, you can right-click then chose properties. You'll see a pop-up window that will list the URL of the image in the center of that window.
copy and paste the URL in the appropriate place.

To put photo links in pattern reviews, you use basically this same method. On top of the box where you type your review there is a link that says "insert clickable link". Click on it, paste the URL from your photo in that window, give the photo a name, click the button next to it, then copy and paste the html coding in the place where you want your link.

The only important computer skills you need to post a photo are the ability to copy and paste as well as knowing how to find the URL. Deepika has made it so simple for us, once we figure these two things out.
