I Downloaded a cute little graphic & got a BB Code & a HTML Code with it.

Through trial & error I found out that to post it on a forum I have to use the BB Code.

I then tried both the BB Code & the HTML Code to post it on an e-mail but no luck.

Where exactly am I supposed to use the HTML Code if not on an e-mail?

Here is the little image I am trying to post on my e-mail...

You would use the HTML code, to add the image to a web page, or to use it on a board that supports HTML
There are other message boards that support HTML, but Bleeping Computer doesn't.

To add it to your E-mail, save the image to your harddrive.
Open your E-mail client, and use the "Insert" dialog, to insert the image into the body of the E-mail.

Hey tg1911 -

While you are correct - the technique you mention works to get images into email - in this case it may not work.

Why?

the www.smileytime.com folks appear to require that you link to their website for these "time smilies".

According to the email software being used, bgorrah could put the link in the email and as long as the recipient is loading images from the Internet, it may work.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Correct, JohnWho.
I didn't realize it was a dynamic image.
My bad. :thumbsup: :flowers:

No problem.

I had to right click and choose "properties" on bgorrah's image to figure out why she was having the difficulty, 'cause it seemed to me that it should work easily the way you were implying, too.

[b]I tried to save HTML Code to my hard drive but when I right clicked on it the only choice listed was "Select All." Copy, Save Picture As & Save Background were listed but they were greyed out.

That's because of what JohnWho alluded to, in post #3.
It's a dynamic image, meaning it needs to be in contact with the site of origin, so it can be constantly updated.
If you were able to save the image to your harddrive, the time would remain the same, as when it was saved.
It would just be a plain image, no longer dynamic, because the link to the site was severed (changed from HTML to .jpeg, .gif, etc.), so it would be unable to receive updates from the site.

tq1911.....thank you for explaining what a dynamic image is. I had never heard that term before. I guess I'll just have to be satisfied using the little image on forums using the BB Code.
