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!

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.

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.

I replied to your other thread here in Q&S, but as for this question...your pic needs to have a URL if you're wanting to link to a picture in a post or your signature. You can host the picture somewhere like www.picturetrail.com (this is what I use) or another free hosting site of your choice. Then you can get the URL off the picture once you've uploaded it. Feel free to PM me if you need help.

It worked but I was concerned that anyone could edit my photoalbum if I gave a direct link into it. Does anyone know? I am using Shutterfly. I opened User CP - Edit signature and after postioning the cursor in my signature clicked on the globe w/ chain ( hyperlink). In another window I opened up my shutterfly account to the page I wanted, copied the URL and then clicked back to Mothering.com window w/my signature page and pasted it then saved.

frannyfresh ~ I don't believe by directly linking to your Shutterfly page that anyone can tamper w/your pictures (although you may want to right-click protect it so nobody can take your pictures). I'm looking at a friend's Shutterfly album right now and I can't do anything but look at the whole album or the slideshow. There is a spot where you can check if you want to order a print, but I believe that can be disabled too.

BTW, I don't see a link in your sig, but from what you wrote, it sounds like you did it correctly. In Shutterfly, make sure you are copying the link that you would share w/your friends and not the link that is in your address bar at the top of your screen. It will end with .jpg or something like that.
