A New Tutorial for Linking to Photos in the Forum

We have a new method for adding images to your messages. We are working on a method where the images will be stored on our servers, but in the mean time this should work fine. We are currently recommending postimages.org for photo hosting. Postimage works much like photobucket did. You are not required to have an account, but if you create one, you can organize and manage your photos. Go to postimages.org - https://postimages.org. under "Post your images here", select "640x480 (for message boards)" or "320x240 (for websites and email)" and be sure "No expiration" is selected. 640x480 will have a scroll bar but has better detail. The images below are 320x240. Click on "Choose images" and select the image on your device.





Once the image upload is completed, you will see a new page with a list of links. Select the second link labeled "Direct link". The button on the right side will copy the link to your clipboard. The URL will look something like: https://www.somephotowebsite.com/usserdirectory/image.jpg





Return to the Quilt in a Day web site when you have copied the URL. Click on the "Insert Image Code" button. A popup will open and you can paste the code in the box (ctrl-v, cmd-v or edit paste). Click OK and the image will be added to the end of your message. You can cut and paste the link around if needed. Just be sure to include the img tags.

The How to link above the message area has been updated with this information.
