When I try to put a banner from "Newie Cub" on my website it comes up as ".art" or .jpg. Can anyone tell me how to change these into .gif so I can upload them to my site.

Before saving the file, you'll see it listed in the Save As dialog box. At that time, type the .gif extension on it. Then save it. You can also save it as a .jpg if you want, since gifs and jpegs are equally recognized on the Net.

Hope this helps...

To the Sysop;

OK, I'm having a problem with this board.
I read all about how to put a picture in here and all I get out of this thing is "image" formatting does not exist or cannot be used in this context.

What am I doing wrong? Or is there something just turned off in here?

Catchup,
I think that the answer is that "image" is turned off, I get the same thing. A while back Tom told me that there were a limited number of "cliparts" that were available. Maybe the site is limited to how much space can be used and pictures count up pretty fast.

I copied and paste one of the newbie banners (images).
When I checked my web page..Only a square and another square with an X in it.

I click it and it did bring me to newbie website.
Its a "gif" like my other banners/images.

How can get the image desplayed? instead of a sq.

Thank you

RE: banners on you web site;

The best way to accomplish this task is to:
1) Save the banner to your computer.
2) Upload same to your web site.
3) Place the link in your web page that includes the link to "The newbie Club" and also contains the "IMG SRC tag that will display the banner on your page.

Example:


The above link will display the banner on the webpage that it is installed on and when clicked, will transport you to The Newbie Club.

But,,,, first you have to upload the banner to you web site. The "img src" in the link is geek speek for "Image Search". Change "yourdomain.com" to represent you web site, what ever that may be. Also, when you upload the banner, depending on what you have to upload it to, if you use the syntax in the above link, you will be placing (uploading to) a folder named "images".

If you need more help just ask...

Woops!!!!

Here's the Example link:

<a href="http:www.newbieclub.com"><img src="http;//www.yourdomain.com/images/newbie_banner.jpg"></a>

<=

This message board won't allow me to write out the whole link so I have to use the long way.

Hi - join Power Promotions & maybe I do this stuff too early in the morning, but I can't get images to come up even with the *easy* *dummie* page. I just get the X also. One thing I was trying to put on the page was a pic we have saved as .gif
Thanks

Hi

Have you uploaded (copied) the pic onto your web space ok?

Is the file name the same on your web space as in your code? eg have you called the file myfile.gif but typed my-file.gif in your html code?

Is your browser set not to display pictures? (You can turn off pictures to make pages load more quickly). Check the "options" and your browser help to check out how to turn them on.

Is the path to your pic right - if you've uploaded it into a sub-directory on your web space like "/pics" or "/images" but your html code is looking in the root directory it won't find the file.

I guess it will take me a while to understand uploading I still don't understand it:(
Judi (DUHHHH)
Can somebody explain it a little more clearer. I can try to download it but some how I lose it:(

Hi Judi
"Uploading" files is just a fancy name for copying them from your computer to the computer where your website is stored (the "server"), using your modem.

There are quite a few programs that do this, some free, some you pay for. Which program are you using for uploading?

CJ:
Sometimes animations are animated with a JAVA script, if you copied an animated .gif and opened it with a browser, IE: internet explore, it would be animated. If however it is a Java applet you need the script in order to make it work.

View the source code to determine if it is an applet. you will see <APPLET somewhere near where the picture is supposed to be.

To view source code, right click on the page, select and click "View Source" and look see whats there.

Catchup,
Applet is no where in it. Java script is.
Soooo, now what?

CJ:
If the animi is java powered then go back to where you found the picture and capture the java script that goes with it. This can usually be found in the HEAD tag.

You can send me an e-mail with your site URL or post it here and I'll take a look see.

If it is what I think it is you need to place the script in the HEAD tag. then the actual picture or background in your case goes in the BODY tag.

Does this thing have a solid background color that changes to different colors?

I am publishing an enhanced email ezine with GetResponsePro -- one problem: I cannot get the image for my logo to display when I send it out --it appears as a white rectangle with a red "X" in one corner. How can I overcome this?

Mary:

Evidently, it is not calling the image properly. This is probably due to using a local directory call instead of calling it globally. I know, that makes no sense, but let me explain.

Let's pretend your image is foo.gif, and it is inside your image directory.

This is a local call: <img src="images/foo.gif">

This is a global call:
<img src=http://www.somewhere.com/images/foo.gif">

The local call will work when you are within your own website, but once you leave it, you need to use a global call to make it work. I believe that is what is going wrong.

Try pasting or typing your banner URL in to the address bar of your web browser and hitting ENTER. If the image does not display, it will not display on your website either and there is a problem with your banner's url.

A tip: If you wish to promote a site and they have a banner but you don't have the correct code for the banner, go to the site and right click on their banner; click PROPERTIES. In many cases you will see a URL in the PROPERTIES box beginning with "http://" which will allow you to display the banner on your My WildFire Portal site and still click to the correct website. This works perfect,I had tried for weeks to get this simple ansewer.I am realy not trying to promote my site but the realy do have some good ansewers there. members area: http://mywfportal.com/?70054845 its free plus you can see "WINDOWS FOR NEWBIES BANNER" I placed there today FINILY!!!

Ok all. I see that a lot of you are having problems with downloading then uploading the image. I have created a *crude* script that does the work for you. Visit the following:
