Default Adding Pictures to Your Fic on the Archive

I don't know why it's taken me so long, but it's a really fun way to add a little something extra to your story

The question, of course, is "How?"

To start with, you'll need a picture hosting account on someplace like Photobucket. Once you upload your image, you'll have a selection of sharing codes. Now, when you post an image, here in the forum, you'd copy/paste the "IMG" option. HOWEVER, to add an image into you fic in the archive, you copy/paste the "HTML" code:



Posting Rules: please do not add pictures to the summary area of your story (with the exception of Awards Pineapples). Also, try to keep the images smallish - no bigger than, say, a banner (600 x 200 pixels max).

Here is a sample of how I used an image as a spacer in one of my stories: Click for sample

Finally, after the image appears in the fic, you will need to go BACK into the edit area and select the placed image. Be sure to turn off the "link" - otherwise the image will remain an active link to your photobucket.



Tip: If using a stock image, look for ".png" files with a transparent background.

It makes the difference between looking like this-->

And looking like this --->

Thanks for the information! So, when it comes to award banners, are we responsible for adding them on to our own winning stories, or does admin do that? I only just discovered that one of my stories was a winner in a few categories last year, and would like to add the banners to my story notes.

Sorry for my ignorance!

Thanks!

Pretty sure that award banners & pineapple icons have to be added yourself, but I could be wrong about that.
Belated congratulations, by the way!

Yup and yup! It used to be that Awards Pineapples were added by Admin staff but it has become a very large job done only by, usually, one person. So now we just tell you how to do it should you want banners and pineapples included haha!

If you want to save it and use it for yourself somewhere, I don't mind. The pic's from the Internet and I did the rest in Microsoft Paint.
