I have a screenshot saved as .jpg.
However I still can't figure out how to include that .jpg into my thread because I'm not into HTML and all coding instructions are outside my field of knowledge, sorry for my ignorance...

For example, my thread window is set to Guided Mode and when I want to insert above mentioned .jpg I get a message
"Enter the text to be formatted"
and inside the field:
"img xxx img"

I have no idea what Applenova asks me , so, will be very glad if someone with HTML knowledge tell me what to do to complete this particular task:

I have a picture named "StrangeIcon" saved as .JPG on my desktop and want to include it in my thread in order to illustrate it.

What to do,STEP BY STEP,please?

(I use OS9.)


Thank you all in advance!

Linda

First, you have to host the image somewhere on a server. There are so many options here, it's impossible to really explain it step-by-step. You need to have access to a web site that can host files and serve them publicly. Apple's .Mac is one example of hundreds. Most hosting services are not free.

Once you have the image hosted online, simply get the URL for the file (http://www.something.com/something/something.jpg) and put that URL between the IMG tags in a post here.

Here's an example...

I have a server running at brad.project-think.com. I upload an image to the server and and get the address. for example, http://brad.project-think.com/images-3/TextEditSnap003.png. I click the "insert image" icon above (), give it the address, and voila -- the post will display the image.

So,as I understand , the only way to include my image into my thread is to:
-first upload it in some host sever
- then, when prompted, to insert its URL into my thread, so Applenova will be able to get it from the server and open it in my thread.

Do I understand correctly?
