Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Big Green Egg headquarters has moved - come visit our new showroom and check out the museum and culinary center too! 3786 DeKalb Technology Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30340

    click the "Attach a File" link under "leave a comment".  Pick your pic, then when it shows as an icon, click the "insert image" if you want it embedded in your text (otherwise it's just a link to a pic with a small thumbnail).

  • on your iPad or Iphone, download photobucket. open photobucket and either take a picture or upload images from your library

    Once the photo you want is uploaded to photbucket, click on it. There will be a small "i" in the bottom right corner. Click that and a box will pop up with 4 different types of files. Click on the HTML file (3RD file down from the top) and it will copy the link. Paste that directly in your comment box (this box for example) on the forum and the image will be imbedded in your post.

    You need to click on full site at the bottom of the page if you are on the mobile site. If you are already on the full site there is a <> icon right above where you type. Click on that then click on the grayed out icon on the right hand side that looks like a picture. Make sure you erase the http: that is already in the link when it appears

    I use Picasa, a Google program, for pictures.  I can post the thumbnails, but I can't get them in text.  Is anyone familiar with Picasa that could help?

    TIA

    Yes, keep clicking the picture so you just have the picture on the screen.

    1.  Right click when you get the picture in picasa and select view image (windows/firefox)
    2. When the new broswer window opens copy this link and past it using the insert image button on the top of the post section.  The link should end in .jpg.

    Let me know if i should do a webshot tutorial.

    It should be similar, I don't have google chrome installed on this machine.  The point is you want to view just the picture... the URL or web address should end in .jpg

    OK thanks airwolf.  I will play with it a little.  May send you a PM if I have other questions.  Don't won't to hijack the thread just for me.

    Airwolf, you are teacher of the year.  I guess this is right?image

    Looks like it is working to me... after you post the picture, you can also resize it if you want by dragging the corners of the pictures.

    @Airwolf  again thanks.  I will fool with it when I have more time. 

     Things like this are why this board is so helpful.  I've got many, many more hours on the BGE than I do at the keyboard. I would never have figured out how to do it.
