Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
Hi all ,

Would anybody be able to tell me how I could get a banner that has a link enbedded , so when the image is clicked it would link to my personal website.

I'm after something like Battou has in this thead
http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=98851

Ive already got a banner to use , but Im not sure how I can make it a link.

Hope someone can help

Thanks in advance

Richard
 
It's pretty simple.. Just host the banner on a website somewhere (Imageshack, photobucket..) and use this code in your sig: (Replace <'s and >'s with ['s and ]'s)

<url="http://link.to.where/you/want/to/go"><img>http://url.to.your/image.jpg</img></url>
 
Thanks for the reply , but Im struggling to get it to work.

The site that I would the image to link to is http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/

And the URL of the image I would like to use is http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg[/IMG***]

- *without the stars

Can anyone get the image with the hyperlink?

It would be appreciated if you could show me how its done.

Thanks

Richard.
 



so what you type is

<url="http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/"><img>http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg</img></url>


and replace all the > or < with [ or ] facing the same direction
 
that works in the forum...but on a regular website would not work.

the proper code would be

<a href="http://sharp-shootin-photography.smugmug.com/"><img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa58/richardpinnock/Headersmall.jpg></a>
 
right, I assume he meant to put it in his signature
 
Thanks for you're replies!

it is for my signature ,

there's a couple of other things....

is there an easy way to center the image?

also , I thought that the image is slightly too large, so I deleted the image that is hosted on photobucket , made the image smaller in photoshop , and uploaded it back up to photobucket (with the same name).

but the image in my signature is still the larger image I have before.

Any ideas what I have done wrong?

Thanks again.
 
use the url for the smaller/resized image? if you are it should not work that way
 
btw is smugmug a free site? I really like the way yours is set up
 
No its not free , Im paying £30 / $60 a year for the power account.

It also takes a lot of messing around with html and css.
The site would look a lot different by default, without any changes by html and css.

I spent hours trying to get it looking the way it is now, especially the front page.

Once its set up as you like it , adding photos or extra galleries is easy.

I would recommend SmugMug, if youre any good at html or dont mind learning, you can get it looking pretty professional (slideshows etc)
