How do I put pictures on the front of my cache pages?

When writing up a cache page how do I post a picture on the page?

I'm note talking about "spoiler" pics., but pictures I have taken with my didital camera. Or downnloaded from a friend. Mostly ones I took myself. Also how do you accomplish this without loosing all that resolution. The ones you download with a log find always look scritchy!

AND can I post a picture I have gotten off the internet? Like a picture of something referring to the cache. A theme item for example.

 

I have seen EraSeeks pages with photos and pictures of paintings.

 

I don't know how to do this. Any input would be great

 

Thanks,

Donna (WD)

Upload an image to the page. In the upper right of the page. The image will be a link in the middle of the page. Click the link. Right click on the image, and select properties. Highlight the image address and right click, select copy.

Type the following on your cache page.

<img src="">

Place your cursor in between the quotes. Right click and select paste.

Now the image in the link will appear on the cache page.

Type the following on your cache page.

I also like to add the alt tag in case people have images turned off in their browsers. The page will display the alt text that you wrote so they know what should be there. Here's how you do that:

 

<img src="picture.jpg" alt="Pic of Cloe the Wienerdog">

I am having a problem... I have inserted the HTML code in the Long Description box but it still shows the green background. It showed the new background once or twice but that was it... Yes the "I am supplying my own HTML" box is checked...

Here is the code:

<body background="http://www.geocities.com/CollegePark/Grounds/2446/bluemarble-bk.gif">

My guess is that the picture isn't always available form the website that it's stored at. You might try uploading the picture into your profile or the cache page, then linking to it's new address here at geocaching.com for example: <body background="http://img.Groundspeak.com/cache/75166_300.JPG">

The easist thing to do is find a web page you like, right-button on it, and select View Source. The HTML code can then be found, though you may have to search a bit for it.

Something else that I always like to add to a link just as a courtesy is the following:

 

<a href="http://www.website.com" target="_blank">Link text</a>

 

By adding target="_blank", the link will open in a new browser window and the person won't have to leave the Geocaching website.
