A quick how to embed a photo from OneDrive

Post by Alan_M »

I know some can struggle with embedding photos on this site, so I have made a quick video showing how this is done. It assumes you already have a OneDrive account and have uploaded your photos to it.

This video is how to do it using a pc/laptop, but will work on an ipad or tablet as long as it's done using the web browser and NOT the OneDrive app.

I realise the video isn't the best quality, but my laptop is pretty old :oops:

and

the longer, slightly more detailed version here - https://youtu.be/T-tT37TbFd0

What a great idea Alan. We'll done. That should help many who have struggled with this for ages. 👍👍👍

Ironically, I use Onedrive to post my pictures, but very differently to you. Maybe it's because I started using one drive just as a common directory path I could have on my work PC and home PC to make life easier when I wanted to work on large files at home. As a result its only on my desk PC, not tablet.
My method involves right mouse click and selecting 'share' on the picture in the Onedrive directory, but AFAIK, I can't resize within the drive, so I have to resize picture before putting in Onedrive.

Alan, thanks for the Video. I have been struggling to get there and have been helped by several forum members.
As a comment on the video, for us non-experts every little move is needed to be explained. We are not used to knowing that RIGHT click is needed sometimes,and the copy/paste also requires a right click, otherwise we are left blank. Notice I have said We.
This happens twice following your video.

Again many thanks

Dave the cog.

Fair comment. I had assumed as copy and paste are basic operations when using a computer everyone would know how to do this :oops:

When I get a little spare time I will redo the video adding the extra bits. It only takes about 20 mins to set up and record, but takes a further couple of hours for my steam driven laptop to render the video and upload to YouTube.

Thanks on behalf of all members, Alan. Once you have the revised video I'll make it a sticky!

Cheers, Richard

Ok, here's a longer more detailed video on inserting an image into a forum post.

Hopefully this covers everything needed. I haven't covered how to open and upload photos to One Drive account as that is well covered on the internet. Happy for any comments.
