Image Posting Tutorial

Here’s how you post an image on this site:

Step 1. You need a picture.

This is obvious. I won’t be telling you how to do any Photoshop this time around, because I can already feel my hair getting grayer just typing this one. Suffice to say, you have a picture you want to show to people.

Like this one, for example. I’m sure you all have a copy of this album lying around.

Step 2. Hosting the picture.

This means you have to sign up for an online photo hosting site such as photobucket, imageshack, etc.

There are lots of sites out there that serve this function. Pick one and sign up.

Now that you’re signed up, you should see this button or one very much like it.

Click and upload your Philip Michael Thomas album artwork.
Now you’re ready for some serious hosting!

3. Copy the HTML

Once your image is uploaded you will see a page that looks something like this:

Now, see that box on the right-hand side that says “Share this photo?” That’s where the magic happens.

You want the one that says “HTML code”

Click on that line of code to copy it. The line of code should look like this:

See? Pointy brackets, not the other kind.
Everything that’s in between those quotation marks is your link information. That’s the part that will be different for each image. The rest is unchanging.

4. Paste the HTML code

Now that you’ve got that code copied, head on over to WinningAtEverything (or some lesser site) and open up a comment box like this one:

Paste your code into that box.

Click “Post Comment” and everything is done. There will be a picture posted in your comment. We will never again think you’re an idiot.

That’s it. Sorry if I wasn’t clearer last night. Don’t be discouraged, it won’t happen again. And I promise not to write any more educational posts.
