How can I insert a little picture or a simple drawing into my posting?

Katinka--Welcome to the forum! Here's a link to the most recent thread that has answers as well as links to other threads about posting pictures (you will need to have an external site to host the pictures). Be warned, this is a somewhat contraversial subject because pictures can slow down how fast Knitters Review loads for people with slow internet connections. I would suggest that you only post links to pictures or very small thumbnails of your images.

Clara (aka Queen Bee[img]http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/icon_star_red.gif[/img][img]http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/icon_star_red.gif[/img][img]http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/icon_star_red.gif[/img][img]http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/icon_star_red.gif[/img][img]http://www.knittersreview.com/forum/icon_star_red.gif[/img])-- I noticed that the question in the FAQ "How can I use smilies and images?" links only to info about smilies. The information about image tags is hidden at the bottom of the section "Can I change the format of my text?". Is this on purpose?

Debbie-- The purple sheep is really cute (and appropriate to your name). I am just a little concerned that it might be a bit large and distracting if you have it in you signature so that it appears on every one of your posts. Is there a way you could shrink it to a smaller version? Maybe a cute little sheep that isn't animated. Just a thought.

Thanks everyone for the gentle admonitions about my prancing purple sheep. She no longer prances and she should be the size of a q-tip. Hope that's acceptable. [blush] -- Debbie

Greengirl, thank you very much for your help. I mean to use some simple drawings for the purposes of explaining my problems. Sometimes one tiny picture saves dozens of words. I hope there won't be any inconveniences for anybody.

Yep, there are still some ofus that have dial-up, no other option available. We appreciate folks thinking about this when considering posting large or moving images.

(I am waiting for the day that DSL or cable modem is available at the farm - but since the road isn't paved yet, I'm not holding my breath about this happening anytime soon!)

I can sympathize Shelia. We still have dial-up too, and it's not looking like DSL or cable will be here anytime soon either. There is satellite, but that is still way too expensive. On the plus side, we can always sit here and knit while we are waiting for pages to load!

Glad to hear I am not the only one living in the dark ages with dial-up access. I agree about the expense of satellite access. The cost to install is rediculous when you consider that they will install receivers for tv for almost nothing. In my opinion, this is a small price to pay to have our own little slice of heaven. I do love the farm.

I should know this so it is embarrassing to ask but here goes. What is required in order to be able to post links to pictures? I don't have any knitting friends in my area. Heck, we don't even have a yarn shop within 60 miles (Michaels and A C Moore don't count). It would be a real treat to be able to show off some of my FO and receive constructive criticism. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

There are lots of free photo hosting services out there, like www.flickr.com which lots of people here use. It's part of Yahoo! and it's easy to use. You can also create a blog on one of the sites like www.blogger.com that allow you to upload your photos for others to see. And www.snapfish.com is another place to put your photos. You can then just include a link to your site to show off your FOs.

In addition to causing GREAT pain to those with dial-up, putting photos in posts on KR takes up LOTS of disk space that Clara has to pay for. It's not nice to dial-up users and it's not nice to Clara either. We are her guests here so we need to be considerate of her storage budget as well.

I use blogger.com, Linda. I can't do half of what other 'bloggers' do on it, but I can upload pictures and post comments on them. If you click on my blog at the bottom of my post (or on Mari's blog at the bottom of hers) it will take you to blogspot.com. and if you click on 'post a comment' it will ask you if you want to register for your own blog. It's pretty easy. If I can do it, you can too!

Mari-- FYI, the issue is consideration for people with dialup. Photos in posts has nothing to do with Clara's disk space and bandwidth. There is no way to host your photos on KR; they are hosted on an external site and the KR server just gives your browser the address where it looks for the picture. The disk space and bandwidth is all managed by the photohosting site (like www.flikr.com or www.photobucket.com ).
