I've asked a few members on different postings but never heard anything back so I figured I'd just start a post and ask everyone. I know how to add the product name link but I see many others that add the actual product picture link and wanted to know if someone would please help me out by explaining how to do this exactly.
Thanks,

I know the designers can add pics of their products that you can click on that take you to them but I didn't think us ordinary SG Gals could do that. But you can use the insert image button above to insert any image you like. Not sure if that is what you mean.

Hi Patty, the way I do it in Firefox is to go to the product page and right click on the smaller image on the page, then click on Copy Image Location. Then I go to my post and click on the Insert Image box (the 11th box to the right, between the link and envelope) and press CTRL+V to paste, then click on Insert Image.

If I happen to be using Internet Explorer, I go to the product page and right click on the smaller image on the page, then I go to Properties and copy the address (URL), then go to my post, click on the Insert Image box and press CTRL+V to paste, then click on Insert Image. This is the same method Carla explained in the post that Dot mentioned above. HTH

There is a really detailed explanation in this old boutique thread: #78

The directions are from the previous boutique, but it should still work.

I keep that particular post bookmarked on my computer so I can find it quickly :)

I'm lazy. I just highlight the product and product name from the What's New section. Right click, choose copy (control C works too, but is a bit less reliable for me) then paste it in the forum post. With the new boutique, I have to delete the "Add to Cart" part, but it works for me.

Patty, this is how Carla taught me to do it.

"Find the image you want to import. If you do it from the products page instead of the individual product page, the image will be smaller. Right click on the image you want to copy and click on Properties. Find the address (URL) and copy that. Then in the forums, when you have your Fast Reply open, click on the Insert Image button, right next to the link button. (it's directly under the text color button). Paste the link from the boutique in the box and that's it!"

And it worked! :)

Hi Patty, glad to see you made it through Sandy okay! Let us know if you still need help with posting the product images. :)
