    I have had a few people message me about wanting me to put up a guide on how to add photos to your posts. So here it is:

    1. Host your picture online. If you have a free hosting site that you already use that's fine. Make sure that they allow direct linking. Most should but some don't. http://www.photobucket.com http://www.servimg.com are two that a lot of people use. Even though I have my own web hosting (I made a post about where I host on the selling online discussion-it's the cheapest I've found by far.) I sometimes use the servimg.

    2. Once you have your pictures hosted online find out the url of your picture. The url usually is given to you when you host an image with the above companies. Once you have found it, highlight the url, right click and select copy. (Or you can hold down ctrl-c)

    3. Come to the discussion post that you want to post the picture on and put in the code <img src="websiteaddresshere"/> Copy that code exactly except put in the website address where I put websiteaddresshere. Leave the quotation marks.

    4. Under your post you have the option "Format comment as Text Html" with little selectable bullets next to text and html. You have to have html selected.

    5. Hit post and see your photo if you did above steps correctly.


    As an example I will list the code for a image I have on my servimg account.

    <img src="http://i67.servimg.com/u/f67/16/27/77/84/th/neckea10.jpg"/>

    This shows as the code because I am in the TEXT mode on the post. I will do another post next where I put it in html so you see the same code but done with html selected.

    Here is it with html selected



    So make sure you don't forget to select html.

    Hope this helps. If you have questions just ask.

    You can also just insert the URL for the image in the post. We have the forum set up to recognize URLs and automatically make them links or use the photos.



    This is the URL for the image above. I've added spaces for you to be able to see both.

    So I guess no picasa. This picture of the berry parfait is from photobucket.
    Thanks for all the instructions, it only took me 4 attempts.....

    By the way, the layers and swirls are brick red oxides, it is scented with banana leaf/acai and mulberry FO.

    one more test to see if it's not so big when resized.
    so, no. guess this will have to satify my need to show you all pics when I am really excited about a new soap.

    If you right click on the image, you can select the option that says "Copy Link Location". This will copy the image URL and allow you to share it here by pasting the text you just copied.

    This is Susan's Peppermint Patty Soap. Yumm!

    Awwwwwwwww shucks. Thank you :)

    I used MMS Green Oxide and Mad Oils Olive Martini and Sister Golden Hair for color along with some Kaolin clay. Scent is MMS Green Tea FO and a little Mad Oils Golden Embargo FO to soften/ssweeten the crisp tea smell. Rose petals on top that I got as a sample. There was no actual tea in this one.

    Looking at your Soap Scrub Truffles, Shelly, I have to tell you, I made a bunch of those one Christmas Season. I called them Bath BonBons. One particular kind was a coffee/sugar scrub one. I had one lady call me frantically, asking if her husband was going to die, because he ate one. She had bought some and left them sitting out on the kitchen counter, looking all pretty, wrapped in candy foil and her husband thought this was candy. I managed to calm her down and told her that no, they were completely harmless, there was nothing in them that could hurt him. I realized her fear was real, and I needed to treat it as such. But in the end, when she had calmed down, I did have to ask, I just couldn't help it. I said: "This couldn't have possibly tasted good, why did he keep eating after the first bite and not spit it out?"

    OH NO CHRIMA!!!!!!

    My hubby and I were talking about that answer....the question being why did he keep eating it and how could he when it should of tasted bad and of soap....well, we talked.

    We have concluded that WOMAN eat a truffle in a certain way over how men eat.

    Woman eat by taking a truffle, and taking a small BITE of it, we want to see with our eyes exactly what it looks like inside, and then we weill eat it in sections letting it melt in our mouth like a Dream and it is our escape time.(tell me this isn't so ladies :-)

    Where MEN...they say..."oh, Candy"...and POP it right into their mouth and its gone!!

    A Woman, who might be watching this Man eat a Gourmet Truffle would then say outloude this:

    "Did you even taste it???"

    HA HA HA
