Is that your sister or your mom?

Whoa man, you need to pull that down before a mod sees it

Hi,
I am trying to post a photo of a bicycle. What did the photo show? I have no racy photos on any system, so I would be very surprized if anything amiss, but please let me know what just posted. I can see nothing of my photo post on my screen.

I am not sure, but I think it is a picture of you kissing your sister.

jim

p.s., just kidding. no pics have come through

The image address of your picture is

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_xwTQzi-yCg0/SX...2/IMGP3051.JPG

Click the image button which looks like a little postcard and enter that string. I got your image address by right clicking on it and choosing "view image" then simply copy the web address

That's a link to the photo's page, which works. But if you want to embed the image, you need to find a URL that ends in "jpg" or "jpeg". In this case, you can right-click on that photo and select "view image" (or something similar). You'll end up with the following:

http://lh4.ggpht.com/_xwTQzi-yCg0/SXufinl-NvI/AAAAAAAAAy4/j32bDadp7J8/s800/IMGP3051.JPG

Just wrap that URL in [img] and [/img] so that you get the following:

[img]http://lh4.ggpht.com/_xwTQzi-yCg0/SXufinl-NvI/AAAAAAAAAy4/j32bDadp7J8/s800/IMGP3051.JPG[/img]

Result:

(Looks nice, by the way. Long Haul Trucker?)

Yes, it's a Surly Long Haul Trucker. I asked a few questions about the proper bottom-bracket spindle length and some kind folks very nicely replied. Am trying to post a photo of the chain-line. Thanks for your responses to my test-post. I will try the above suggestions.

another try at test photo

This works!
Thanks for the advice and sorry to clutter the board with a test.
Much appreciated.
