ARE YOU PIX POST TRAINED?



"What are you waiting for, the TOTAL polar cap  meltdown???"


 


  From time to time, PL members ask me how to post images here.  I usually handle it in PM.  So here's one for everybody.  Feel free to add any info you find helpful.  Please post a picture here when you are successful! 


 


POSTING IMAGES IN PL




1.  Your image must have a url!  You can can google/bing etc. an image then right-click / copy 'image location.' Or you can copy your image url off Photobucket or another such service that attaches url to images you import - personal photos, etc.


2.  Open a Post a Reply window in your thread. Locate the Insert/Edit Image Option.  It's the post-card icon in the Post a Reply tool bar.  Next to the smiley face. Left Click on it.


3.  A window will open showing you where to paste-in your image url.


4. Right Click / Paste in your url.


5.  Click OK.


6.  Your image will appear in your Reply post.  Submit as usual.


You might want to type in your remarks before you paste in an image.  That way, your photo won't bury your comment, so to speak.  You can use the left/right/center option to re-position your photo.


HAPPY POSTING!

QUOTE VERBATIM 101


Now let's talk about how to post quotes from your internet references directly into your reply without running into the big red quote-kill message - "Prohibited HTML"


I know a LOT of LEOs in here have been frustrated because they CANNOT quote references to support their observations, opinions and arguments!  YES YOU CAN!!


Sooo...You know about Quick Diff Online Tool, right?  It removes unwanted HTML so you can post articles, etc. in threads.  Or even refer to other's quotes. 


FOLLOW SIMPLE DIRECTIONS HERE:


http://www.quickdiff.com


Example of quickdiff use -


From:  http://www.aei.org/files/2006/04/20/20060421_DelattrePressRelease.pdf


In Character and Cops, Delattre considers:

• excellence of character in police

• the mission of police

• public trust and probity

• leadership and the character of a police department

• fundamental tenets of character and training

• deliberation and issues of morality in training

• the O. J. Simpson trial and race

• the spirit of public service and individual conscience

• terrorism and policing

TAKING CONTROL





 


EXAMPLE:  Use of PL Insert/Edit Image Option AND Quick Diff Online Tool:



"David Gergen, editor-at-large of "U.S. News & World Report," engages Richard Brookhiser, senior editor of "National Review," author of Founding Father: Rediscovering George Washington.  


RICHARD BROOKHISER ON GEORGE WASHINGTON

MARCH 28, 1996

TRANSCRIPT


RICHARD BROOKHISER: Well, we, you know, we don't realize that a lot of the rules that we live under were precedents established by him. You know, we assume that when the President or, or any high official, when their term ends, when they're voted out of office, or, you know, after a certain number of years, they will just step down. They will give up power, you know, commanders in chief will give up power at the ends of wars. We just assume that. And, and that was, indeed, the political theory of Washington's day. You know, all the intellectuals of his time in America believed that that should be the case. But it had to be established in reality. It couldn't just be ideas or theories. And so it was very important that we had the leader of both the revolution and also the first President willing at the end of those two tours of duty to step down and give the power back. And this, this made real the principles that everybody believed and espoused."

SIZE MATTERS!


Sorry to bust anyone's bubble, but it does.  Sometimes it's just too big to fit.  What to do?  


tinypic lets you resize.  It also attaches a url to images.


http://tinypic.com/?t=postupload 


 




 


 WAIT!  DID I GO OVERBOARD HERE??



 


SNIP TIP


You'll have to snip a little off the code.  Just snip off the [img] portion at the head and tail of your image url after you paste it into


PL's Insert/Edit Image option window

SOUND OFF!!


Example:


Combination of PL Insert/Edit Image Option and the Quick Diff Online tool to create a post containing a poem and an image of the poet herself.



"Bury Me in a Free Land" is a poem by Frances Harper, an African American abolitionist and poet.


    Make me a grave where'er you will,

    In a lowly plain, or a lofty hill;

    Make it among earth's humblest graves,

    But not in a land where men are slaves.


    I could not rest if around my grave

    I heard the steps of a trembling slave;

    His shadow above my silent tomb

    Would make it a place of fearful gloom.


    I could not rest if I heard the tread

    Of a coffle gang to the shambles led,

    And the mother's shriek of wild despair

    Rise like a curse on the trembling air.


    I could not sleep if I saw the lash

    Drinking her blood at each fearful gash,

    And I saw her babes torn from her breast,

    Like trembling doves from their parent nest.


    I'd shudder and start if I heard the bay

    Of bloodhounds seizing their human prey,

    And I heard the captive plead in vain

    As they bound afresh his galling chain.


    If I saw young girls from their mother's arms

    Bartered and sold for their youthful charms,

    My eye would flash with a mournful flame,

    My death-paled cheek grow red with shame.


    I would sleep, dear friends, where bloated might

    Can rob no man of his dearest right;

    My rest shall be calm in any grave

    Where none can call his brother a slave.


    I ask no monument, proud and high,

    To arrest the gaze of the passers-by;

    All that my yearning spirit craves,

    Is bury me not in a land of slaves.

I have been able to post pics in forum threads...... What I want to know how to do is post a pic in the comments section of a submitted news article.  Marly, I've seen you do this.  School me.

MarlyB this is great stuff! 


My brudder is a Genius at these kinds of things, but when I ask him something he either refuses to put it laymans terms, gets frustrated, laughs or it costs me a lunch. 


My NETpertise is just a notch above these two.

CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE


Crediting the artist is a good idea.  It is often hard to tell where an image originated. 


Depending upon your computer, you can get a little clue -


Hover/Right Click View Image Info over this image to get an idea if YOU feel safe visiting the webpage(s) it is found on.


This one lead me to a business site:  http://www.redandbluegraphics.com/home.php


Was the graphic generated by the firm?  That's a phone call/email question.  It's advertised for $150.

URL is short for Uniform (or Universal--oh, how ironic that the name itself isn't "uniformly" agreed upon) Resource Locator, which is really a fancy way of saying "web address" (e.g. http://policelink.monster.com is a URL).

For what it's worth: I think MarlyB is doing a great job with this bit of performance art meets seminar. An interesting presenter always helps with comprehension, don't you all agree?

Thanks, mz66!  Good question, MIKIESPLACE!


SURF THE WORLD WIDE WEB


URL IN DA CURL!


 


 


Basically,  you get around the internet by means of URLs.  They are web addresses.  For instance, look at the address bar at the top of your page (or where-ever you set it up.) 


Do you see this: http://policelink.monster.com/topics/86000/posts/new?quote_id=1171435    ???


That's the web address for this page.  Also called the "link"  to this page.  But you used a short-cut to get here.   You logged on to PL,  clicked Forums, found the Topic title, clicked on it, then clicked to this page.


If you want to navigate here again, by just using your address bar....open a fresh window.  Cut and paste the link in, then click the 'go' icon next to your address bar or just tap "Enter" on your keyboard.


Presto.  You're back. But now there's 2 windows open for PL!  Now WHY, you ask, would you want to have more than one window open for PL?  So you can edit one of YOUR  fine stories while listening to your playlist you posted in your Comment wall.  Or MY playlist.  PM a friend, etc.


URL


"A uniform resource locator, abbreviated URL, also known as web address, is a specific character string that constitutes a reference to an internet resource. In most web browsers, the URL of a web page is displayed on top inside an address bar. An example of a typical URL would be "http://en.example.org/wiki/Main_Page". A URL is technically a type of uniform resource identifier (URI), but in many technical documents and verbal discussions, URL is often used as a synonym for URI.[1]"

Is this the kind of head-ache it's giving you, TNDEPUTY?


 



 


THE TNDEPUTY CAKE POST PRACTICAL


1.  Look at the listed Photobucket URLs to identify the typical URL code that starts with http//:  


2. Choose  [IMG]http://i1290.photobucket.com/albums/b521/PRIVATE2013/14341_1274580112888_3428236_n_zps7317518e.jpg[/IMG]


3.  Delete the [img] at the head and tail of the url. (Because the PL Insert/Edit Image option won't recognize it!)


4.  Paste the URL into the URL bar in  PL Insert/Edit Image option


5.  Proceed as usual.


ET VOILA!!
