Posting pictures?
Hello
I am planning on joining a game, but I can't seem to figure out how to post a picture of my character
Could anyone help me and explain? :)

Thanks!

<img src="http://www.somesite.com/the-image.jpg"> (the quotes are optional (necessary if the path has a space in it)).

The image can be aligned to the left or right of accompanying text by including either align="right" or align="left" in them (these quotes are also optional). No height, width or any other information is allowed.

Once you join a game, you will also be able to select a picture for your character from the existing gallery, if you would like -- that's the picture that appears to the left of posts near the character name in games.

However, you can't do this until you have been added to the game.

As part of your RTJ, you can only post a picture using the code that badpenny mentioned, or you can also simply copy the picture's URL as a link that the GM can click on to follow.

In reply to Shannara (msg # 3):

Okay, so I should use links to "show" the picture?

Aswell as the gallery after I've joined a game.

If the picture is very large, I tend to use a link myself because depending on how the other user is viewing the sight, a very wide or tall image can be disruptive.

I generally tend to resize pictures if I really want to display them.

If you want to use an image from elsewhere, it's generally good practice to first copy it into a third-party image-hosting site like Imgur. Making a direct link is called 'hot-linking', which can use up bandwidth a site would rather spend on actual page-views. Also, if the image turns out to be too large, you can go back to your copy and resize it.
