I placed img after a bit of text.
I was then never given an opportunity to place any file or folder, so I typed my url and then img again at the end.

Help

Devonwoody, to link to a picture, the file extension would normally be .jpg or .gif or similar, looking at the URL you have typeed above, it ends with john.jt - I think you must have missed a bit of the link.

I've been to your page, and if you put the cursor over the image, right click the mouse to get properties, and then highlight and copy the URL you get this url

Code:
http://homepages.tesco.net/john.jt/gardencoffeetable.gif
which if you put between image quotes like this

Code:
[img]http://homepages.tesco.net/john.jt/gardencoffeetable.gif[/img]
gives this

DW,

You've got the page URL instead of the piccy one. :( If using Windoze, right click on the piccy, then "properties" then copy the given address. It'll probably end in ".jpg"

Cheers, Alf

Doh. (to us all posting at the same time) not to you having trouble with the links system.

Your message squeezed in before mine, and I was replying to ALF's post!

Does the piccy title always come up as no gaps, I am sure when I saved the picture I would have tyuped the spaces?

Anyway, I am a verry happy bunny after all that.

Gots lots of pics !!!!!

When you upload it, many pictures are stored without any spaces etc, in teh titles, often as the server is a unix machine (not that you see any difference from a user perspective). No matter what you call it on your home PC, you should always get the URL by getting the picture on the internet, and then rightclicking to get properties. Like This...

From your website put the cursor over the image and right click brings up this menu...



This brings up a properties box like this...



highlight the URL which will have the exact name of the image, as a computer sees it



then right click whilst over the highlighted text



then click copy, and then paste between your "img" tags....
