Wednesday, lovely Wednesday  
I am so confused. Or maybe I am just still too new at this so I simply don't know what the hell I am doing. In any event, I wanted to post some pictures here in my journal entry, but I don't understand how. I know, Shonna's a dummy. How do you get your image uploaded to a web space provider that allows remote loading to a livejournal? Please help me if anyone feels particularly sympathetic for my pathetic knowledge and skills.

♥♥ Great amounts of love to anyone who is willing to assist me ♥♥

Well, since you used ♥'s. ;D

Go to a free photo hosting service. (I use http://www.yesalbum.com.) Create an account. Upload the pics from your computer. (I usually save pics to desktop, then "Browse" for them, it's easier that way.)

In Yes Album, if you click on the pic, it takes you to a web page that is nothing BUT that pic. Copy the address of this page. It's the pic's location and will end in the file format of the pic (e.g., ".jpg" or ".tif"). (For example, the address of the page containing the pic of Hugh Jackman I posted yesterday is
http://www.yesalbum.com/v001/tamlane/wet_hugh.jpg
.)

Once you have the address, use the following code to post it to your LJ:

<img src="enter website address here">


And never EVER EVER use the
<img src="...</b>">
tag to link to pics that are not uploaded to YOUR account. This is called "hotlinking," it uses someone else's bandwidth, and is the number-one "no-no" of the internet.

Hope that helps!
