Posting Pictures From A Mac

Postby papermaker » Sat Dec 11, 2010 10:44 pm

I use a Mac IBook G4 that has been handed down through four kids! It does pretty much what I want it to do. The only thing I seem to be having trouble with is trying to post pictures on this forum. Does anyone have patience enough to do a "Mac picture for dummies"?

I have used a Mac for going on three yrs, and its easy now. There are other folks who are more tech savey than I am and I am sure they will be of more help. I use photobucket, I simply download my pictures from my camera to I photo. Then I open photobucket and download the pictures I select from I Photo. Once the download is complete you are given options for sharing the photos. I select the one that says for message boards and copy the link you are given. I then prepare the post I want to make and paste the photos. I then check myself with preveiw. Sorry I can't be a better help but believe me it is very easy.

I'm also a mac user and Joe's advice is very good. Just to limit confusion, when when files are on your computer and you send them somewhere else you're uploading.

No matter what platform you use the process is basically the same...import the pictures from your camera to your computer, resize or edit them (if needed), upload to a website/host, and obtain the URL for the picture, then insert the picture's URl between IMG tags like this:

And you'll get this:

Good luck!
