As some of you might have already noticed, if you want to add a picture to a post, and use < img src= “url” > it didn’t exactly work. Reasons? PnP does not allow anyone to post images from other sites. If you want to post an image from another site, you have to download the image first and then upload it to a PnP gallery, AND give credit to the site you got it from.
But why go through all the trouble?
Linking to images from other sites without their permission is illegal. If you link to an image on another site, it’s called bandwidth theft. If you have permission from the site to link to their image, then it’s ok. But since we have no way of knowing if the site really gave the permission or not, all images that are not from PnP are blocked. PnP gets 500 gig of bandwidth per month (same as many other sites), when you link to an image from the PnP galleries, you’re using that bandwidth. But if you link to an image from another site, then it comes out of their bandwidth allotment, not ours. So linking to an image from another site is basically the same as stealing.
If you want to put an image on a work FROM A Sailor Moon GALLERY, type in
< img src="http://www.sailormoonfans.com/galleries/anime/(gallery)/(image #).jpg" >.
And example is < img src="http://www.sailormoonfans.com/galleries/anime/sailor_moon/Sailor_Moon-1.jpg" > *
That’s the first image in the sailor moon gallery. Capitals ARE important!!
< img src="http://www.sailormoonfans.com/galleries/anime/sailor_moon/sailor_moon-1.jpg" > is NOT the same as
< img src="http://www.sailormoonfans.com/galleries/anime/Sailor_moon/Sailor_Moon-1.jpg" >.
So if you want to add an image, it’s best to go to the image you want, right click on the image, select ‘properties’, and copy everything.
* Notice the spaces between the tags () and the ‘img’ and ‘.jpg"’ If you want to add an image, DO NOT put any spaces there. If I were to take out the spaces, the command would be carried out, and it would look like this:
