I need help, please.

I need someone to explain, in very non-technical terms, how I can put pictures into my LJ. I checked the FAQs and it’s not working for me.

Until then, click here to go to Flickr and see my trip pictures. The best way is to click on the Camping 2006 set and watch it as a slideshow because then they are in the correct order. Otherwise it’s backwards.

To give a small amount of background, my Dad and I were on Malcolm Island which is reached by a small ferry that runs from Port McNeil. This is about two hours north of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. We stayed for three nights at a campground called Bere Point and made some forays into the town which is called Sointula, which means “harmony.” Then we spent our last night at a small campground by a lake just outside of Campbell River but I have unfortunately forgotten the name of it.

Malcolm Island is a fabulous little place with two hikes, a 3 hour and a 5 hour. The town boasts a large co-op, a pub, a bakery with restaurant that serves wonderful food, and of course the artisans who congregate in small places like that. I plan on going to the website of the wood carver because there were no prices on any of the work and I thought the Easter Island heads were great. Not sure if they would look as great outside my front door, but whatever.

    Oh wait…

    I CAN help you.

    You can’t post pictures, not ones that you want to upload from your hardrive. You have to have them on a webpage, then put the URL (copy the address) into the little space that asks for the URL after you click on the little IMAGE icon when you’re posting.

    That’s why I upgraded to the page with advertising, so I could post pics.

    I think a lot of people do the flickr thing. I believe you can use the URL from the flickr page.

    HOpe that helps…otherwise, wait for rescue from a more learned LJ user.

    Good luck!

    I forgot to change some pointy brackets to round ones, so you got two pics of me.

    I’m trying again:

    Open http://www.flickr.com/

    Log in, or if you have “remember me on this site” checked, it’ll already be logged in. The page will say “Hi Twilight”.

    Click “Your Photos” (It’s on the right hand side of the page, right in your line of vision.

    Find the pic you want.

    Click right on the pic you want.

    At the top of the photo you’ll see a bunch of icons. Click “All Sizes”.

    Select the size you want. (I prefer small or medium for blog posts.)

    Below the pic, you will find:

    Here is a pic of me in a tiara to celebrate.
