So Your a Subscriber and you now are able to use pictures in your journal but they dont seem to work.
Well heres the quick lowdown on how to do it

Important Rules with Pictures on the Journals
1. File Sizes (remember people on DA use 56k Dial Up Connections)
2. Pornography Will not be tollerated
3. Illeagal Linking to Copyrighted Materials and Images Within :devart:

Breaking any of these rules will not be tollerated and can result in a ban

Now the Disclamer is out of the way to buisness:

1. Have your Webserver ready with a picture on it to link to
2. The Code, You May Copy this: <img src="Link" alt="Alt Text" /> . Easy

Ok that was easilly done but hey i wanted the pic in the center, for this you will need to use Div Tags

1. To Use Div Tages you need to put Code 2a before your Picture and 2b at the End
2a. <div align="Alignment">
2b. </div>
3. Replace Alignment With either of your choice: left, center, right

So you want to push it one step further and link your Image well heres how to do that too

1. Code for linking: <a href="Link Location" > <img src="Image" alt="Alt Text" /> </a>

Learning HTML Formatting
Start of your selected area you type
Bold: <b>
Underline: <u>
Italic: <i>
Strike: <strike>
Code Text: <code>
Subscript: <sub>
Superscript: <sup>

At the end of your formatted area you type
Bold: </b>
Underline: </u>
Italic: </i>
Strike: </strike>
Code Text: </code>
Subscript: </sub>
Superscript: </sup>

Hey i'm wondering if anyone can help me with something.
I'm experimenting with something, and basically what I aim to do is have a banner of pictures (with equal dimensions so they line up hopefully) that each link to a seperate thing, and this would be added to image descriptions to link people to my other galleries and sites.

I was just experimenting to see if I can add an image with a hyperlink just as a test but the annoying part it, Instead of making the code work as normal, the link to the image under the "src=" attribute becomes an actual hyperlink and so the code doesn't work and it ends up looking like this…
is there anything I can do to make it work? or is it just not possible to post pictures into descriptions using html?

(Other than of course adding the pictures from within deviantart with thumbnail codes or the adding media box. that's not what I need)

This is really helpful! Thanks!
But when I try to make a picture link, the picture is on the far right of the wiget and is almost cut off. Even when I put the < div align="center(or left)"> in front of it, it just stays in the same place. Do you know why?
Broken-Tcup Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2012
Errr... so I feel rather unintelligent... I've got everything but "Alt Text". What goes in the quotations?
flameturret Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
You can put whatever you want there, its actually not needed, but a good idea to have, its for when images don't load properly you can see what was meant to be there, it displays the text instead. So if you have an image of an apple, write apple.
Broken-Tcup Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
Ah I see. Thanks much.
lumaeya Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Student General Artist
I dont get it, like if I want to put a picture thats NOT on dA or another website, like saved as a jpg file on my coputer, how do I do that?
flameturret Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
If you want to link to an image on an external site you need code like the following;
<img src="http://locationOFimage.jpg">

If the image is on your computer you will need some online storage and upload it to that storage, then use the above code to link.

how do you put an animated *gif* on your journal?? ( kind of like your webcam) .. im sooo confused !!!
flameturret Featured By Owner May 24, 2012
HTML code is;
With a Hyperlink: <a href="Link Location" > <img src="Image" alt="Alt Text" />
Without a Hyperlink <img src="Image" alt="Alt Text" />

Example: <img src="smiley.gif" alt="Smiley face" />

As we the webcam thing. You click edit page at the top right
Add the webcam widget
Edit the widget and just add the URL for your gif. Easy as that.

If you want pictures from DA can you only use the thumbnail option? I've tried linking it but it doesn't work and I want a larger sized image then just a mini thumbnail, are there any ways to do this for journal pics? :?

How do I put a picture without a link? I've used the correct code, but lately deviantART is making the coding glitch because of the "alt" tags. Removing them worked, but this no longer works. Any help would be appreciated.
Dayu Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009
thanks for the info.
Btw, I wanted to include a .swf animation in my journal.
Does it work?
Cause in the FAQ I didn't find any information about it =(

Excellent! But how do you write code so that it displays as code?
Like writing < acronym title="Acronym" > Text < / acronym > without the spaces and without turning it into Text
HaiyakuCK Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2004
By saying it's illegal to link things from DA to put onto your journal, does that mean we can't submit journal images into our own account and post them on our journals?
flameturret Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004
Correct, you cant submit pictures to DA for the sould purpose of putting it in your journal

wowo! well then thank you much for this!!! :smooch:

but hey , below said that I CANNOT put pictures that are already copygrighted, but for example, if Iwant to put a picture from a superrmodel , just to say the "prettiest of them all" (dumb example) ,, cant I do THAT? I meant , im not saying that I took this picture, im just using it to show it to all.... can I ? :hmm:

Another question:
How do I make those fancy picture banners , like the one you have below the journal tittle" Journal Help" ?

well , hopefuly Iwill not be such a bother :S...
