1. You can't get here from there...

You need a photo hosting site like imgur or photobucket to post on DU.

2. You can also use an FTP program if you have your own web space

through your Internet service provider or Web hosting account.

5. Here's my post from a previous thread on using imgur to incude your pics in a post:

[br][div class="excerpt" style="margin-left:1em; border:1px solid #bfbfbf; border-radius:0.4615em; box-shadow:-1px -1px 3px #999999 inset;"]Imgur.com is one of the easier image hosting sites. You don't even need an account to upload images. Start at this link:

    http://imgur.com

In the Upload images section click the Computer button. A dialog box should open to let you navigate to the image file location on your computer. After selecting it, a new section on the main imgur page should appear with a Start Upload button - click it.

Once uploaded a new page should appear with the image on the left and a list of links on the right[sup]1[/sup]. For DU3 use the Direct Link - click the little page icon by the image address to copy it to your clipboard and then when you are composing your DU3 post hit Ctrl+V to paste the image address where you would like the image to appear. No special html tags are required - when the DU3 software sees a link to an image ([font style="font-size:0.8462em;"].jpg, .gif, .png[/font]) it should automatically display that image in your post.

The address that goes in your post should look something like this:

    [font style="color:#000099;"]http://i.imgur.com/k1sDT.jpg[/font]


[sup]1[/sup] [font style="font-size:0.8462em;"]There is also a deletion link below all the other image links on the right hand side of the page - be sure to copy and save that if you might ever want to delete the image from their servers.[/font]

9. Ok I'm way late to the game but I just found your post.

Make7 - Thank you, thank you, thank you. I could never figure out how to do this but I just tried your instructions above and it worked. Now I owe you BIG TIME. Like maybe a kidney or something?

4. Simply stated...

You can't directly upload a pic to DU. You must FIRST upload it to an internet site that does photo storing (as mentioned, imgur and photobucket are two of many) They are free. Once you get an account on one of them, upload your pic to the site and they will give you the 'url' or internet address of that photo. THEN you can paste that into a DU message, and the photo will display.

Does that make sense?
