HowTo: Adding images to messages in-game LP:FA

Postby Thyriah » 30 Aug 2014, 23:44

Hi,

since I've got asked this question many times in the past here is a short HowTo on adding pictures to messages:

1. Find an image on the internet as there is no way to upload it into the game. At least not that I know of.
2. Make sure you are entitled to use that image outside of the webpage where you found it.
3. Right click that image and copy its address.
4. Come back to LP:FA and start writing a message, no matter if it's a PM or a comment for another player's profile wall.
5. Use the following 'code' to create a section that later on displays the image with the recipient:
Code: Select all

[img]http://www.imagehost.com/link/to/picture.jpg[/img]

(-> Replace "http://www.imagehost.com/link/to/picture.jpg" with your image's link from clipboard)


6. Add some text to your message if you like. ;)
7. Click send.



Thanks,

Thyriah

This has not worked for me, I have tried it repeatedly. Every time I send the message, all I see is the message i typed.

Let’s start off with choosing a picture you want to insert.
(I’ll be using this “hello .gif” for my example)
Image

Right click on image and then click COPY IMAGE ADDRESS (as high-lighted in blue)
Image

Click the IMAGE BUTTON (which is the 6th button on top of message field)
Image

Right Click and paste your picture address.
Click the IMAGE BUTTON again. (It will close off the address with [/img] )
Image

Voila, and you’re done.
Now send me a nice picture to practice. :D
