Step 2: Scoll Down

Step 3: Get the Pics

>Click "browse" and go to the file where your "instructables" pictures are

http://something.yahoo.hotmail.aol.googlepages.com/

Step 4: Select Files and Upload

>After selecting all files click "up load"

>you should come to a screen that has a triangle with an ! in the center of it

Let me ask you this... How do people get the cool "mouse over and lightbox sorta script" over their pics. That one has befuddled me for months.

author
westfw (author)_diyMATT2006-10-17

the instructables editor does that. Once you've uploaded an image, you can "edit" it, dragging rectangles and providing text for the mouse-over events.

author
something (author)westfw2006-10-18

how do you do that

author
westfw (author)2006-10-25

Heh. You make a nice instructable, and what happens? They go and move the "upload files" link to a different page!

How do i change my icon picture?

author

If you have a photo in your library already, just go to the top menu, click the triangle next to "You" and click "Update photo"

author
zachninme (author)fungus amungus2006-10-22

They need to allow you to switch back to just the plain image.

Thanks for your help! Not all of our features are obvious, but we're trying to make it easier. PS - new features are due out tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed.

animated GIFs?

author
westfw (author)2006-10-17

Alas, I think most peoples' difficulties lie in TAKING good pictures for instructables, rather than in merely uploading them.

something (author)westfw2006-10-17
