  How to Post a Picture in a Message

Website FAQ's and Tutorials
The ability to post images in message is very fun. It can help tell a story, show off a successful hunt as well as be able to convey details not possible through plain text. It can be confusing to new people but in reality, posting pictures is very easy. Be careful posting images that do not belong to you however.

To post an Picture in a message, it must first exist on the internet somewhere. Physical computers that hold the images are called "Hosts". HuntingNut.com is a free image host for hunting, fishing and other related pictures. Some people choose to have their pictures hosted on personal webhosts, paying a monthly fee or choosing any one of the free hosts that exist.

To upload an image to be hosted on HuntingNut.com, see our Hosting Pictures, a Quick Guide

Once the picture is hosted somewhere, it will have an address called an "URL". Url stands for "Uniform Resource Locator" which is a fancy way of saying its an internet address. You can right click most pictures that appear in a web-browser and get Properties and see the URL of the picture. That is its physical address that is used by the browser to get and display the image. The URL of an image is also called a "Link". Posting the address to an image in a message is called "linking" the picture.

From here I will assume the picture you wish to post in a message has been successfully uploaded to HuntingNut. Lets continue.





Step 1: Enter the Photo Albums





Step 2: Select the Category containing the picture





Step 3: Select the Album containing the picture





Step 4: Select the Picture you wish to link to





Step 5: Scroll down to the Picture Information section





Step 6: With your mouse, drag and select the Pictures URL. Copy this url





Step 7: The url or link address to the image should now be in the windows copy buffer. You can now paste this inside of the message you wish to post the image in.

Posting the link however is not enough in most forum softwares. You need to give it a command that tells the website to display the picture itself, and not display the url only. This is done by using two special commands: [img] and [/img]. Note the 2nd command has a "/" within it.

When you post a message to a forum, the software quickly looks through the message for any codes and handles them specially. Bolding, italics, font size changes or font colors are all processed at this point. This includes linked images.

When the software encounters a [img] command it then reads all of the text until it reaches a [/img] at which point it stops. It then takes the text it read between the two commands and uses it as a picture image to display.

To recap, in order to get an image to display in a post it needs a
[img] command before the URL, the URL itself pointing to the image we wish to display, and a ending command of [/img]. Thats it! Very easy!





Step 8: With the image properly added to a post, click the Preview button of the post and see if it displays. If everything was linked properly you will see the image!

Trouble shooting: If you see the standard windows "red X" icon it means one of two things. 1) that the url is incorrect and the web browser cannot find the image or 2) that the image itself is protected from being linked to.

If you dont see a picture but you see the url being displayed, check the [img] and [/img] command tags to make sure they are correct. If everything checks out and it still wont work consult the help of the forum software you are using. Most softwares universally use "[img]" and "[/img]" as image display commands but there are a few forum softwares that use a different standard.





Give it a try! Its easy and fun. Feel free to email us if you cant get it working.
