Posting Images

NOTE: Moderator approval is required before posting nude art because we are a public site and have underage viewers. Sharon will make the decision whether a given image is art or crosses over into porn. Please e-mail nude images you wish to workshop to Sharon Passmore at


First, the image must be on the internet somewhere. If it is already on a website, you can use that URL. If not, you will need to upload it from your computer to Erato's server.

You can use the attachment function to upload an image to the Eratosphere server. Details on using the attachment function is available through the FAQ pages here.

The attachment function places a link to the image at the bottom left of your post, labeled 'Attached Thumbnails' where you will find a thumbnail for the uploaded image, and the original file name. Readers may click on the icon to go directly to the full-size image.

However, the image itself will not appear in the body of the post unless you take the following steps:

If the image is on another website, just type the following code (in which "address of the image" is the URL, no spaces) in your post:

[IMG] address of the image [/IMG]

If you've uploaded the image to Erato's server, you'll need to find it's exact URL there. First submit your post as instructed here.

Next, open your post and click the thumbnail to open the image. Then copy the url of the image from the address bar so you can paste it into your code.

Next, edit your post and insert the image code where you want the image to appear in your message, bracketing the image's URL with [img][/img] tags.
