Is there a way to post a picture of a completed project? I don't have a blog or a websit.
Thanks,
Cindy

I'm new here so I don't know all the ins and outs of what this board is capable of, but for most places I would suggest getting a free image hosting account somewhere like www.flickr.com or www.photobucket.com . Once you upload your image, you can right click on the image itself, say 'copy image location' or 'view image' and then select the URL, be sure to get the full thing with the http:// and paste it between the img brackets... if you click the little yellow button with the mountains on it that's up with the font control buttons on the post box it will give the image brackets, put the URL between those, or type [ img ] paste image location here [ /img ] (but without the spaces).

Does any of that make any sense? I hope this helps.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

It is not possible to upload any pictures onto the KR servers and display them here in the forums. It can only be done by linking to a picture hosted elsewhere. We had to eliminate this option because of a) security (we couldn't control what people would upload) and b) costs of server storage for the images.

Here's another discussion we had about this:

One way to do it is to set up a flickr or other free account like Dandelion suggested, then modify your KR profilr to include the link in your signature. Set it so your signature is included in every post, and we can link from there. Looking forward to seeing your FO's!

For people with dial up it takes forever for pages full of pictures to load, so it's best to just link to your photo site. An occasional picture is OK, but pages fullof pictures will drive people with dial up crazy. Of course they could get some knitting done while waiting for the pages to load....

You know, maybe I should go back to dial-up, just for that purpose.

Yes, Cindy, links are actually better for all. I use Photobucket as an image hosting service. I use other software to reduce the size of the photo first, but you can reduce your photos using Irfanview (free), then upload them to Photobucket.

You may also want to check out Webshots.com. You can upload pictures there free as well.

Cindy, your son looks so cute in the things you made.

Just a thought - on flickr when you make the photos "public" anyone can see them and when you put "tags" on them strangers can pull them up which means that the pictures of your son will be on the open internet. I'm not sure whether or not that concerns you (no last name or address obviously). If you prefer, on flickr, you can mark pictures "private" and only the people you designate can view them - good for family albums, etc. A lot of people just photograph the knitted item and make that "public."

To see what I mean go to the site map and click on "everyone's tags" and put in jaywalker and see what comes up. You will see a lot of socks and also a family by the name of Jaywalker.

Thanks for the advice. If I make them "private" KR people won't be able to see them? Are you suggesting that I just photograph the knitting, not on a person?

It's totally up to you whether you want to post pictures of just the knitted items, which some people do, or actual pictures of the people wearing them, which other people do. I just wanted to point out the options because, like you, I just started using flikr so I noticed all the different ways of doing it. I have a cute picture of my niece wearing a sweater I made but I'm not comfortable putting her on face on the internet. Again, everyone has a different view of this.

Shruti, you can go into "Profile" at the top of this page (right under Knitter's Review Forums) and set up a signature. In that signature, you can put the URL to your photobucket address...it will then look just like the link to my blog in my signature. Every time you post, you can automatically include your signature and that will show everyone the address to your photobucket URL.
