FAQ: How to post a picture...

Stashing a copy here, so I can grab it and post to picture groups when the question comes around again...

Greetings all,

Just a short little tutorial on how to post a picture.

Upload your photos to web site that allows direct serving of images.
Many freebees like GeoCites do not allow this.
A popular service is
MSN and FOTKI also allow direct image references.
There are others that I'm sure will get posted to the comments.

Create a LJ posting with the following elements (admittedly some of this style and manners):

Write something about what you are posting.

Add LJ-Cut tag, before the big images, so folks on slow connections can choose to download the pictures.

<lj-cut text="Pithy little comment">

Follow it with the IMG SRC tag wrapping the pics URL:

<img src="URL">

Tip for printroom: You can remove the &courtesy=1 portion of the URL.

Remember: You can have multiple pics per post.

For full details of the tags used, see the LJ FAQs at:

Hope this helps.
