Buffy Casablanca Poster poppy wreath  RS

Help on DW with posting images, pretty please?

Can anyone tell me how to post images to my DW posts?  Or, add images to DW posts when I begin with LJ?  When I posted on LJ about winning at the SunnyD fanfic awards on Monday, the text transferred to DW but the image/award didn't.  (There is this icon for "image" on the rich text version and it wants a url.  Most of the images I post don't have url's, and I don't see an option for simply downloading from my harddrive.)

I guess the overarching lesson here is - originate posts at DW first?  ( "But Mommy, I like LJ.  I'm used to it and it's pretty!"  I never claimed to be logical.)

To transfer the image over, you need to copy from the html version because that has the code.

Thank you..now how the heck do I do that? (I'm just learning html, so just being able to do is about as sophisticated as I get.)
When you go to the edit your entry page to copy it, you'll see a tab on the right which says "html". Just click that and then copy from that instead of the rich text.

Believe me, I know how tricky all of this is at first.

oook-kay, I'll give that another try. Except - what exactly am I copying? (I don't have a PC btw, I have a Mac, but I have set up my mouse to have some right-click functions, don't know if that helps.)

In this case, the SunnyD award image (Best Angst Gen) is titled "R27angstgen2". I dragged that to my harddrive, downloaded it here to the LJ post no problem. How do you html that?

Copy the code in the < bracket > which begins with the words: "img src"

I have never used a Mac, so I am officially 90% useless here. Sorry!

code being the name of the image? and then how do you end it? "/img sc"? I've seen "img" but not the scr part before.

Thanks again for being so helpful *hugs*
Just copy the brackets and everything in them and then paste them where you want the image to show up. The text might be slightly different on your Mac.

I wish I was more helpful. I hope you can get this all sorted out.

Thanks. I'm still not sure I understand but that's totally my fault, not yours, trust me. (I can read directions on how to do stuff, such as with computers, but once I get it, I get it. I was like that with beadwork and now cooking for a long time.)
