If you ATTACH an image, it becomes part of the archive of this site.

If you LiNK to an image on a site like Flickr or PhotoBucket, it will vanish if/when the account on Flickr or PhotoBucket is closed (or if the external site to which you link ever goes away - which is frequently the case when folks link to their own site).

Yes, you can LiNK in a PM, but you can't ATTACH in a PM.

Either way, a (posted) photo displays in the short term. It's not part of our archive, however, unless it's ATTACHED.

For private messages, which presumably are not archived, linking is actually the best way to go. (Thus the forum software doesn't allow attaching.)

Clear as mud? Happy New Year, y'all!!

Mary, I would agree with all you say, except for one little detail. The PM feature has a button that says, "attach image" when the mouse hovers over it, doesn't it? (edit: Oops, I remembered wrong, it says "insert image." Mary is spot on.)

Anyway, Perry's original question was simply how to add an image, not how to attach one. I think we sort of got into 'left field' with the answer.

Mike, not sure what you are looking at, maybe attach an image, but there is no 'Attach' button in PM's. You would have to have this button available, and unless you are special, I doubt you do.

And Perry's question was very much addressed, in that you can't attach an imagine in a PM, so the only way to add an image from your computer would be to first put it on a hosting site, then insert the URL of the image in the PM.

I'm looking at the yellow button that has what looks like a mountain on it. When I hover the cursor over it, a little dialog box springs up that says, "insert image." My bad, I remembered wrong, I thought it used the word "attach" but really it's "insert."

As you say, Jim, one can add an image. The way to add an image to a PM is to click the little yellow button that looks like a mountain. This will result in the recipient seeing the image in the PM, even though the image is not resident on the FGRV website.

This whole thing started with Perry wanting to use a URL to attach an image from his computer in a PM

Dona, your first sentence on your first reply was good enough. It was a simple question that John asked. Sometimes you get to deep in explaining something. You also stated “Nor can you add an image to a PM” which is a bad statement because you can.

John is probably more confused now than what he was when he asked the question. Maybe what he should have asked was: How do I post an img to a PM from my computer?

As I just MENTIONED to someone by PM, there's a huge difference between ADD and ATTACH.

Had I been able to edit my post, I would have changed that ONE word...

Cute! Or.. at least as long as FiberglassRV archives last, because.. they're attached, not linked.

Talking Photos on the internet

Just to make it more complicated,

Some genealogy websites caution about posting pictures that you don't own.

If you post a picture of a relative from his wedding and it was taken by XYZ Photos, the website and you would be open for copyright infringement as I understand it.
