How do I post a pic from my hard drive?
« on: September 24, 2002, 01:04:20 am »
Just wanting to know if it is possible to post a picture that I have of a Mustang on my hard drive. A previous post mentions how to post a URL from a website. Is there a different procedure to follow for this or is it the same and I got it wrong?
Any ideas? Please let me know.

The short answer is, you can't post a picture from your hard drive.

You don't truely post the picture here. The mechanics behind this process is you put in an HTML tag in your post here that references a picture located (saved) on a server (hard drive) somewhere on the Internet. The picture appears "magically" in your post here thanks to the linking process that makes up the world wide web.

Now, if your hard drive is connected to the Internet full time and you have an URL for the pic on your hard drive, you can put a link in a post that references the pic on your hard drive.
