Hello,

In order to add a picture to your blog, first find the image you would like to use. Typically images are either on your computer already or within another web page.

If the image is on you computer then you need to host it (see Hosting). If the image is already being displayed on another webpage then you need to identify that images address. To do this, Right-Click the image you wish to add to your post, then choose “Copy Image URL”. It should look like the address to a website with a image file extension at the end

Example image URL http://i.imgur.com/qtcmq7m.jpg

Common image file extensions (.jpg, .gif, .png)

Now that you have your URL you can add your image to a post (see Posting)

“Hosting”

There are countless ways to host an image, most involve a service (many of which are free). You could try one of the following

www.imgur.com

www.flickr.com

www.photobucket.com

Once you choose a service you will want to make an account, then follow that services process for adding a photo to your library. Once you have the photo added you will have access to a URL It should look like the address to a website with a image file extension at the end

Example image URL http://i.imgur.com/qtcmq7m.jpg

Common image file extensions (.jpg, .gif, .png)

Now that you have your URL you can add your image to a post (see Posting)

“Posting”

Now that you have your image URL, go ahead and make your post and add the following bits of code

[img][/img]

These tell MyFitnessPal where your image address starts and stops, so to add the example image above you would place the image URL between the [img] and [/img]

It should look like this: [img]http://i.imgur.com/qtcmq7m.jpg[/img]

We hope these instructions help. Please also remember, all images on the site, including all profile pictures and images posted in the forums, should be work-place friendly. While we reserve the right to remove any photo we feel is inappropriate, here are some partial guidelines as to what is not acceptable:

- no nudity

- no underwear, thongs, or g-strings

- no pants or shorts worn mid-hip or below

- no photos in which hands or objects are the only bodily covering

- no excessive cleavage (if you would wear it to work, it’s probably OK)

- no close-up shots of cleavage, butt, breasts or crotch in any state of dress

- no hateful or violent imagery

- no images containing profanity

If you are photographing yourself to demonstrate successful weight loss, tight fitting spandex is a great way to show the change in your shape, while still abiding by these guidelines.

Thanks!
