if it's online already you just copy the image location and



(no spaces though)

if its not online you need to upload it on a site like www.imageshack.us, then copy the image location it gives you.

I dont know what you guys are doing to your pics to make them look that good. The way the blacks are really dark and the colours so vibrant.

sol, bloody great pics.

homer and mob, it's partly the camera and partly the editing. digital slrs give you total freedom with lighting settings, colour balance, apeture and exposure etc… but even a good point and shoot camera and a bit of photoshop will do a lot to the colours in your images.

The picture of the girraffe is basically untouched, but the Red Arrows has some post-processing on it.

Learning how to use the manual controls on your camera is one of the most important skills, because that allows to you to get the image correctly exposed the way you want it too. I always use manual filters too, such as a Circular Polarizer to give the sky a deeper shade of blue and a nice gradient to it.

The lens also is really important, you get what you pay for. If you are using anything other than an SLR (be it digital, or film) it doesn't matter how many megapixels it may have, it is limited by it's lens and in the case of most digital compact cameras, it's tiny.

(That's partly one of the reasons I think it's lame that people get so hyped up about buying camera phones with more than a megapixel or to… what's the point?)

you're right about megapixels sol. my d70 has 6.1 mp, more than i need currently. biggest i've printed to yet is roughly a4. maybe i'll print larger in the future, but i definately have no need for the 8mp, 10mp etc which are all over the compact cameras.
