posting photos, how to:help

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm trying to attach a photo (for the first time) and I think I'm following the dirrections.........

I click on the "browse" button. Find the file I want on my computor. It shows the address in the blank area next to the browse button. BUT then it doesn't come thru in my post.

What am I doing wrong? Do I have to type the address dirrectly into the message portion of the screen?

TIA

It almost positively won't work from your computer unless you are a full time computer nerd. The whys are a bit detailed and unnecessary. The main point is that you are not attaching a photo to your post, but embedding a link to a photo on the web somewhere.

So, you need to first move the photo to some location on the web. You probably have some web space with your internet connection. You use an FTP program to move it there. Talk to your internet service provider. They'll tell you what your web address would be and how to move it there. Details vary from ISP to ISP.

There are also photo hosting sites, some free, that you can use for this. They include special code to move photos to your storage area.

Then, after all that, your photo will have a URL--a web address. That's what you put in the image code pop-up in the posting page here at cheftalk. The button you click to get the popup is IMG.

Oh boy, that is more complicated then I thought it would be. All I was going to post was how I set up my last buffet (cheaply) using boxes and bags (catering topic).


It would be neat if lots of us shared buffet photos. I'm always looking for new ideas and I have many I could share too.

I'll give these other places a look........

Thanks for the help. I'll probably have more questions.

I'll gladly offer up a portion of my Web space to any ChefTalk members for linking to pictures. The idea hit me when I wanted to show how my communion cake turned out. Anyone interested can email me off list at baker@sweetestobsession.com

Thanks for posting those mage!!!! I thought for sure I screwed up mailing them, ha, at least I learned a couple things........mainly that I was doing things right- just didn't know why things didn't work. I get it now.

I couldn't see the photos I picked, the screen was blocking my view. I wish I had picked better ones (they look out of focus to me), my point is a bit lost (it really did look nicer in person, you couldn't see the hat boxes I set trays on as much and everything looks so small in the photos). I had hoped to post these under the catering thread for buffet ideas.......to show another cheap idea for decorating a buffet. I spent about 60.00 on wrapping paper and bags. But this can be re-used for many other buffets. I used cake card boards to line my "trays".

The club I did this buffet at owns NOTHING to serve from, but chafers. I did Easter there and I didn't have one extra tray for back-up, I ran myself in circles trying to refill small platters. They don't own serving knives or any spatulas (only tongs). I had to put a french knive out for cutting cakes (kids....not a good mix).

BUT (one thing I like about this club is) They're cool with serving "pretty" cakes that aren't all pre-sliced. So this buffet was my way to over come most of the obsticles that got the best of me at Easter. They do 2 -250 seatings and it's me alone the whole way in a extremely hot kitchen with very limited space. So I made my own trays out of boxes wrapped in paper. I managed to get enough out that I didn't have to refill until the next seating. It limited what I could make (tongs only and no refilling), but I think they were all happy in the end. I served my own cakes and it was nice to actually relax and cut (even chat) with-out running in circles.

Thanks for letting me share.
