Posting Pictures

posted by: buehl on 02.11.2011 at 01:48 pm in Kitchens Forum

This thread will describe how to post pictures from a photohosting site, from a PDF file, or from some other location on the web.

First, though, where are your pictures? If they are on your computer only, you will need to upload them to somewhere on the web for the rest of us to see them. I upload pictures to PhotoBucket, but there are other photo-hosting sites available. For example: Picasa, Filckr, Webshots, Snapfish.

  1. Open an account w/PhotoBucket or other photo hosting site.

  2. Take a picture using a digital camera (or film camera, but get your pictures on a disk when they're developed & download them to your computer)

  3. Resize your pictures so they're not too big, generally no more than 400x300 (or 300x400)

    Resize keeping the same proportions so they don't get distorted...i.e., don't specify a specific size, use %-ages or similar

    [You can also often resize pictures at your photohosting site, but it's faster to do it on your computer]

  4. Upload your pictures to your photo account

  5. Find the label that contains the HTML Code link to the picture and copy it

  6. Paste it into the thread's "Message" box (< Ctrl >< V>)

  7. Click the "Preview" button.

  8. You will now see the picture.

Posting a Link

posted by: buehl on 01.03.2011 at 04:37 am in Kitchens Forum

There are two ways to post a link:

To insert a link using the provided boxes below the "Message" box:

  1. Insert the link in the "Optional Link URL:" box

  2. Type in the description or name of the item being linked in the "Name of the Link:" box

  3. If this is a new Post, you won't see these two boxes until you "preview" your message. So, compose your message and "preview" it. You will now see the link boxes and can now enter your link information.

To insert a link inside the "Message" box,

  1. Copy the following into the "Message" box where you want it:
    &lt;a href= http://www.XXX/&gt;Description&lt;/a&gt;
  2. Next, replace the http://www.XXX/ with your link

  3. Now, replace the Description with the description (words) you want displayed with your link.

With either method, you will see your link when you next "preview" your message

[Please, do not bump this thread!]

Here is the link to the ones I bought. I found that Lowes carried this brand both in the store and online. It matched perfectly to our backsplash.

sorry about the grainy pics.
Things are still moving along...slower than i thought it would be. They work all day doing a detailed installation and then at the end of the day it's kinda hard to see anything diferent.
The counter guy comes today!
a final spray painting will be in a few days still to come.
here we go!

island without legs still..




still agonizing over some thins like lights and faucet placement, but getting close! :o)

And Breezy - i will get you seeded glass pics as soon as i use a better camera - they are looking good with this one!
