It worked a little while ago.  I promise.  Grumble, grumble, cuss, rant, cuss.

In case any one is curious this is the picture I was so valiantly trying to post.[:D]

No thanks on the mamogram, but you obviously have the answer to my question. How do you include a picture with a post? I have some pictures I would like to post.
Link Posted: 4/7/2001 3:48:32 PM EDT
First open an account with photopoint.com--it's free for now anyway and upload your pics.  Make sure you transfer the pics out of your inbox into an album.  

Place the url between the board code for posting pics.  It will look like this except change the "q" to "g"


to get the url just click on the picture in your photopoint album then copy and paste the url into your thread.  Don't use the "http://" part of the address.

Hope this makes sense.

What?  How is this going to work now?  Will I have to pay a Photopoint fee?  Or do current account holders go w/o the fee?  SOMEONE HELP MEEE!

I got an email from them saying that they want $9.95 a year which is pretty cool. Only problem is when going to the pay up page. They want your phone # etc. and the "Verisign" page does not look quite right. Untill they get it together I will find other ways to get photos on a server.

This may or may not work.

TESTING: If this works, I'm deleting all my Photopoint images and hosting them here...


Link Posted: 4/7/2001 7:54:18 PM EDT
Then again, maybe not... the photo quality sucks. That is on "ofoto"... not happy with the results, so back to the drawing board.

Link Posted: 4/7/2001 7:58:39 PM EDT
Just for comparison, this is the same photo at Photopoint...


Link Posted: 4/7/2001 10:51:37 PM EDT
Both Yahoo and MSN offer online photo albums I think.  I'm cancelling my photopoint account.
This is not to say that I have any moral problem with them charging a fee, hey it's capitalism, but I just put all my pictures on MSN for free.  It is not quite as convinient as photopoint but does have some advantages.

Now a test: [img]http://content.communities.msn.com/isapi/fetch.dll?action=view_photo&ID_Community=SchatzisFamily&ID_Topic=2&ID_Message=5[/img]

Is it just me, or is photopoint looking like the only dependable game in town?

Link Posted: 4/8/2001 7:13:08 AM EDT
Well I guess time to tfr all my crap to Yahoo briefcase.
Link Posted: 4/8/2001 3:38:59 PM EDT
Well I decided to go with [url]http://www.webshots.com/homepage.html[/url] instead.

Kinda nice not to have that silly ad on top of your pics

Link Posted: 4/8/2001 5:33:43 PM EDT
Well, lets just give this Webshot stuff a whirl.

Don't you two have something better to do?  Thanks to both of you I had to do extra work today.

Hey Aggie1, that can't be true because you never work.  ;)

I ain't paying no fee.  I'm using tripod.  50MB free space...make it look like a web page.  Not as convenient as photopoint but what the hell, it's still free.  

There are tons of free web space providers.  Most of your ISP's give you some space on their server when you open your account.

TITLE: "AMERICA"S MOST WANTED". Is this a picture of those Texas Cons that Escaped Several Months Ago[?]
Link Posted: 4/8/2001 6:53:00 PM EDT
That pic was taken @ one of our SoCal shoots at Burro Canyon. And yes since those are considered contra band weapons in Kali we were Kali's most wanted. [@:D]

But wait the gang get bigger

I set up a free photo album on [url]www.excite.com[/url], and it seems to work well. Photos are loaded the same way as photopoint, and there's no advertisement at the top of the picture:

Ok, there are two ways to do this, the right easy way, and the poor man's easy way.

The right way is to start a website say at homestead or some such.  You download your pics and then link to them, for example, from my homepage:


You go to the pic on the homepage, right click and then copy shortcut, address, or link.  If that option is not available, click on properties.  On properties, it will show you the address, copy and paste.

Then, there is the poor man's pic save.  I must have 3 or 4 yahoo email addresses.  Why not 30 or 40?  Save a pic, email it to yourself, and then leave it in your inbox.  When you open that piece of mail, right click, copy the link.  Everyone can view it right out of your mailbox (see example below).

and then from Yahoo:

Well, you can see, that McDonalds pic is saved only in my yahoo email inbox.  I think I will open 3 or 4 yahoo email boxes just to save pics in.  I doubt they'll ever notice.
