If you want to include a picture within a post- (not the persona/profile/avatar image that appears next to the member name on their post each time) you need to have the picture available already uploaded online. So upload those ultrasound pictures and pictures of the cute stuff you are collecting! We want to see them.
Once you have a picture uploaded online -like on Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Picapp, Photobucket, a personal website, etc-then you just use the url for that picture.
Be sure you own the picture or have permission to use it. There are some free use picture sites so if you want a generic shamrock or beach or whatever out there but they will ask you to link back to their site. Please follow any rules the picture hosting site requires.
Once you have located a picture you want to use-find out the URL. You can right click on the image and click "copy image location" if you aren't sure about the url for the image itself. You need the image URL-not the page the image is on. This url will end in .jpg most likely.
For the example, I will use a picture here on WebMD:
To turn a url like that to a picture in a post, click the photo icon at the top of this box. It is the one that looks like a blue square in a Polaroid-sort of. Paste that entire url into the pop up box and here is that picture: View Thread
As of tomorrow, you will have a new moderator on this exchange. I will be working with her while she gets her feet wet-but I would like you to welcome your new moderator: Andie_WebMD Staff.
I have loved helping out on the trimester exchanges. It has been a long time since I had the joys (as well as fears and frustrations) of pregnancy but pregnancy communities were where I started working online many years ago and still a favorite of mine.
When you get ready for losing the baby weight-come look for me over on the Diet exchanges or if you have a craving during pregnancy but need the recipe re-worked to be a bit more nutritious-come over and say hello on the Food and Cooking Exchange .
Wishing you each a happy and healthy pregnancy and beyond.View Thread
Wow-two sets of twins. You need to look into the requirements in your state-some require classes or a degree. Most, if not all, require a home inspection. The trick is that I think all states have a pretty tight limit on number of kids total in the home for one caretaker.View Thread
