HOW-TO: Post Photos in PugVillage
I am going to try and explain this as EASY as I can. Bare with me, as I work with computers all the time, so this is all second nature to me.
Some things to understand first.
1. The photo has to already exist somewhere on the internet. This means, that the photo can be on your own personal website, on a photo sharing website such as Photobucket or Shutterfly, or even a photo you find on Google.
2. Each photo that is stored on the internet, can be refernced by a link (technically called a URL). Simply put, a URL is a shortcut or link to the location of that particular location on the internet.
The usual format is http://www.websitename.com/photoname.jpg
Now the websitename can be anything, and there can be other things in between the websitename and the name of the photo.
The important thing is to find the link to the photo.
If you already have the photo up on your screen, you can usually right-click on the photo with your mouse and choose properties.
Here's an example using a website that already exists. In this case it's front page of the New York Times...
Step 1 - Right click on the photo you want to include in your post
And then click properties. See... here is the URL
Step 2 - Now, go over and highlight and COPY the link (i.e. URL) with your mouse.
You're half-way there!
Step 3 - OK... now click the Picture Insertion Icon on PugVillage
Step 4 - And then Paste the complete URL into the window that pops up
