  • I feel dumb asking this, but how do you insert a picture into a forum post. I know that you click the "image" button and get "[img]/[img]" but do you just type in the path for the pic's location?

  • If you right click on the image, you should be able to select something like "copy picture location". I did this to your avatar and got this link: http://comicbookrealm.com/images/avatars/e8225e1df2412fc7387eb97a36093f8d.jpg

    One way to know you have a good link is that the link should end in a graphics file extension like jpg, gif, tiff, etc.

    I hope this helps!

  • The problem is that i'm trying to insert pictures that I have on my harddrive. There is no "copy picture location" option. I tried typing in the path, like G:\comic covers, but that didn't work. Does the picture need to be hosted online?

  • Oh yeah, that would be the problem right there! You can upload your pics to your CBR profile and get the links there.

    AH! Don't. It took me a while to figure out how the bells and whistles on this internet thingy works. It's not something they teach in kindergarten or grad school! You don't always know until you ask. Welcome to the realm! We're always glad to help people who appreciate it.

  • It wouldn't be so bad except that i'm in school for computer systems, graduating soon, and I can't figure out how post a stupid picture. Oh well, I should stop beating myself up.

  • Meh - computers are variable things. I'm GREAT with excel, but for some reason that means people expect me to know everything about computer systems.

    I like your avatar by the way. Ministry of Silly Walks rules.
