How do you add links to pics in your sig?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I notice a lot of people have links to pictures in their signatures. How do you do that? I looked at the explanation in the thread under that topic... but I'm not too computer friendly and it totally confused me. If anyone could explain this to me in *very* simple terms, I would super appreciate it.

Thanks a bunch!

I too would also like to know, so if anyone has any suggestions, thanks.

Thank you,

Hope This Helps!

Hi there ladies! I'm learning how to interpret all this computer jargon myself. I'm in the May '06 DDC and had this very question not too long ago. Look at the post about photobucket that Naughty Dingo so nicely provided for me on page 2. I hope this is some useful info for you. Much love,mamacatsbaby

Yeah... it's a gibberish to me...

I thought about just putting the link to my snapfish album in my sig, but what I'm not undersanding is how so many ppl have, say, their child's name highlighted and when you click on it you can view photos of them. Makes about as much sense to me as calculus (and I never really even understood basic division!).

There is an icon that you click on in the message box that looks like a globe with a piece of chain on it. When you hold your curser over it it says Insert Hyperlink. You click on that and it will have you put in the address for your picture and your text.
HTH,
Heather

I just finally got around to doing this, but that's a good explanation there.
You first type in what you want the link to say, and then input the actual address.

Now that I know how to do it and I spent like 2 hours finding pics and putting them on shutterfly, and shutterfly won't let me share them like this... no matter how I do it when I click on the link in my sig it just goes to the shutterfly sign in page. I heard shutterfly worked for this which is why I went for it.

What's the best website to use for this?

Thanks everyone.

I like www.picturetrail.com. They will give you the url for the picture to post. Very easy and cool and it is great for ebay auctions too

I'm on winkflash, and I realize now that everytime I add to a folder, I may be f@#ing up the link. :

I finally got mine to work. I use photobucket and it shows just the picture I want, not all others in my album.
