RE: Iam having the time of my life thank you all so much

I just wish I could figure out how to get my Pictures, on here, to share with everyone.
I can help with that. I use the free account at Photobucket so I can most easily explain how to do it from there. First you will need to get signed up for an account at Photobucket (see link at the bottom) and upload your pics to their site.

You can post a link to an entire album at Photobucket if you have the album set to Public

Album of my NO ID irises

You can post a clickable thumbnail sized pic by copying the HTML Thumb code found below the pic at P-bucket, if you have your settings set up to show it.
NO ID #12-White w orange beard-ppb
Note, if you right click on the pic and choose Properties you will see that the size of the file is 4.06 KB which will load quickly even for those who are still on dial-up service.
If you click on the pic to make it bigger, and then click on properties, you will see the size of the file is 59.91 KB, which will take a bit longer to load, particilarly for those on dial-up.

You can also post the full size pic by copying the HTML code and pasting it here in the message box.
NO ID #12-White w orange beard-ppb

If you click on the bigger pic just above you will see that the size of the file is 59.91 KB.

If posting pics in the message box, if it best to keep them under 60 KB.

If posting several pics, it might be best (for the dial-up folks anyway) if the clickable thumbnails are used.

Photo bucket try/RE: Iam having the time of my life thank you al

Iam gonna try and put a pic on here ,It took 2 hours to up load a few pic but will see if I can make them arrive from my photo bucket account, one of my pic here goes who knows what size I got it to be, I tried to down size it. Trial and error here

RE: Iam having the time of my life thank you all so much

HeyCemo. I did make a Photo bucket account today and got some on there
YAY...If I can do it, so can you. Just try to remember that.

I got so frustrated I had to take a break sweating from over load on the brain
Been there, but didn't sweat, but just got real nervous and had to get away from it and then try again later.

so putter dummie books just dont help me.
Ha! That's me. I bought a book "Cleaning Windows XP for Dummies" back when I first got my computer and had it all goofed up (beyond cleaning or repair) so bad because the free antivirus that came with it wouldn't acknowledge me and allow me to get updates. Anywho, just to make a short story long, Dell tech support had to work with me to totally remove the operating system (Windows XP)and then helped me reload it all. It's about a 24 hour ordeal to then get all the updates and programs loaded from discs or from the net. I was on dial-up at the time.

I love my P.black color one I know it is labled out in the snow.
I'd love to know what it is and see a pic...maybe we could do a trade.

I love number 14 would die for that
The one below? It has always been one of my least favorites and as a result has had to fight weeds just to barely survive. I found out the name last year and if it survived the winter, would be glad to share a rhizome or two.

NO ID #14-pp cream with gold

I think I can I think I can, keep trying like my first WS.
I know you can. I know you can. I know you can.

Is this YOUR shade bed?

It's stunning! I love all of the tasteful well placed garden accouterments that add so much to the beautiful plants.
Now you are wondering how I did that...well I right clicked on the page here and chose View Page Source. Then I found what looked like the code you had tried to post and then I added some HTML code to it to get it to show up as a link like that above.

Anywho, you are almost there since you have some pics loaded into P-bucket. Do you see some boxes below the pic? What are they labeled out to the left side?
I suspect the code you need is not being shown below the pic because of your settings.

Do you see code below the pic that says HTML Code?
If you copy that it will give a full sized pic here, which may be slow to load for dial-up users like yourself.

Do you see code below the pic that says HTML Thumb? If you copy and paste that code, it will make a small clickable thumbnail size pic that will load quickly and that members can then click to open and see it bigger.

If you don't have either, or both of those codes, just lmk and I'll help you with your P-bucket account settings.

Is this your bee pic?...bee on Lamb's Ear? Cool.

Here is a pic of Buddy. He just showed up here Mon and decided to stay after I fed him and he played with my other 3 furbabies and I gave him a warm comfortable place to sleep.

I 'think/hope BF will like him and take him. I won't know until Sat. Gotta go let Buddy in. He's learned how to whine and scratch on the door and tug at my heart strings.
