Ok, I type, can find Internet porn, can Bing. But that's about it with me and the "how-to" of the computer.
I can master lurking DL. I know to highlight lines I want and type a left bracket and type the word quote and type a right bracket and click to put copy in a shadow box.
Of course I've photos on the desktop. But I never got into the how to put photos up on DataLounge where my favorite hot guy is posted from time to time.
How do you guys put photos and links to sites up?
Crash course please?
Gramps, the fact that you are proud that you "can bing" means you are a hopeless cause.
Um, you put the url of the image in the url box just below the message box.
OP Eldergay, just try.
I would say try harder, but that would be impossible, as you're not trying at all.
I'm guessing that if R1 and R3 were asked to take a junior high school algebra test, they'd fail miserably unless they had their trusty PC/MAC with them.
And just so you two know, a PC/MAC won't wipe your ass after you've taken a dump. For the love of humanity, wipe.
Keep trying R4.
If you are trying to argue that basic - and we're talking basic - computer skills aren't useful, you have a serious problem.
Multiple r1 personalities in this thread. Sheesh!
OP, in order to post your pics on Datalounge, they have to be online somewhere, not just on your computer. Upload your picture to a photo sharing site (google "photo sharing sites"). There will be instructions on how to upload your pictures. After you do that, the site will create a link for you. Copy that link, and paste it into the box that says "Url:" underneath the box where you type your message here in DL. They click [save post] and your pic will be posted as a link in your message. People will have to click on the link to see the picture.
And, OP? Do yourself a favor and stop using Bing. Google is so much better for everything Bing does. Bing sucks.
But the Google can see and profile all my onliney activities!!
Oh, r7, you clueless moron.
what photosharing sites are good for x-rated images?
Ms. R8, it's pretty clear R7 is joking.
All photos posted in this site are hosted elsewhere... they're uploaded to tumblr, flikr, instagram, or are found using Bing or Google image searches.
If you have a picture on your own hard-drive, you can't "link" to it directly. You must first put it up on the internet somewhere, so it has a URL, that you can copy and paste into the "URL" box.
Tumblr works well for this. But any photo sharing site will work... some better than others, as some don't allow direct hot-linking.
Also, if you want it to be visible embedded in the thread, then it must be a jpeg or gif file (not an animated gif or png file)... and it must have the "jpg" or "gif" extension (some jpeg files have .jpeg extensions, and so won't show up inline).
If you don't know what 'inline' photos are or look like, hit "settings" in the left side-bar, and check the "inline photos" and "inline youtube videos" check-boxes, then close the settings box.
Yeah, instead of candy-assed quips like R1 & R3, let's have an answer for R9.
OP here. Not the phony of R7.
This was a test.
I asked a simple question, how do I post porn, something that hasn't been my prime focus regarding use of the Internet.
I figured I'd get some flack, but possibly would find out what I wanted to know.
Of course the smart-asses jumped in right away. . R1 called me "Gramps," R3 "Eldergay"."
But best, R2 and R6 (R6, yeah, Google is it, but me and Bing is just a thing) and R11came through. I thank you.
These "good guys" are why I like to read DL. The candy-assed old freaks throwing out barbs can just stuff it, the only stuffing they've probably had in years. A year ago I read DL a lot. When I posted calling some just too gay and tiresome, the freaks flew in calling me tiresome for finding anyone else tiresome. Now that I'm stupid, where are all you other stupid people too stupid to know how to use a photo sharing site? Wouldn't my question help you, too?
I said "I can Bing." Was attacked immediately! Three simple words, rather than say I'm familiar with, have used, have gone through, Ask Jeeves (when I started, but I was a kid), Lycos, Excite, DuckDuckGo, Dogpile, Yahoo and of course Google. I prefer Bing. Simple matter of knowledge, taste and the way I work. Why waste words explaining something to a site like this? Within minutes some less-than-sharp basement-dweller would type in "Get a Blog," or be pissy as were R1and R3 in the anonymity of their basements throwing out "ElderGay," not having a clue who they were talking to. Honey, or in this case, honies, I grew up with the Internet, my first toy was a red "computer" Speak 'n Spell. Trust me, I know far more than you two. But I have never needed to use a photo sharing site, nor knew how to. I asked, and now I do. Thanks to "the good guys."
How old are you? The Internet has been around almost 20 years by now.
Born '86. There has always been Internet in our house. My first memory is dad's Macintosh Plus. It ran OS 7. Now he has OS 10.8.2. He teases me I'm lagging behind on OS 10.6.8.
But back to something at hand: "what photosharing sites are good for x-rated images?"
You were born in '86 and use the phrase 'candy-assed'? You mean 1886, yes?
Google Chrome does indeed monitor your activities, so use another browser or setup another account.
Some of our posters like to act Republican now and then-- I suggest you just ignore.
No, R16, good descriptions are good, no matter the eon they come from. Like "lame" for you. Why do you need to chime in?
Can you see inside my room when you read my posts?
Is Edga a newly authenticated user?
Why am I having flashbacks of D-A-V-IDA-[...] and PPSM?
David would know how to use a PC.
New question (not OP here): I know how to link to sites, but is there a way to make just the picture you want to link to on a webpage show up rather than forcing people to click on the link? I know that some images show up inline for me, but not when I link to a page that has text and multiple images, obviously. How do you get just one photo off of a page to link by itself?
[quote]This was a test.
And you failed.
No, you are 86.
