The following article explains how to add pictures to MySpace. The process itself is not overly complicated and everyone should be able to follow the steps. Please leave a comment if you have any questions about the process.

There are basically two possibilities to add pictures to MySpace. The first is to upload pictures from a computer to MySpace. If you do it this way, you use the code that is displayed after the uploading finishes to add these to your MySpace profile or blog posts.The second option is to embed images directly that are hosted on other websites.

If you want to upload pictures directly to MySpace you need to know the requirements. Pictures may not contain nudity, violence, copyrighted material or other offensive imagery. The picture can have a maximum size of 5 Megabytes and has to be a jpg, gif, bmp, png or tiff.

The process to add pictures to MySpace is the following. You click on Profile > My Photos to load the photo album. The photo album displays pictures that have already been added to MySpace. It contains a link at the top to Upload Photos. A click on that link opens the form where you can add pictures to MySpace.

This is done by browsing the computer of the user for pictures. Holding the CTRL key makes it possible to add multiple pictures at once to the upload form.

A click on Next opens the next options window which gives the user the choice to upload the pictures to an existing photo album or to create a new one for those images.

A click on Upload uploads the pictures to MySpace. A progress bar is shown during upload. The next button leads to another optional menu where the pictures can be tagged. Tagging makes it easier to find the images later on but is not required at all.

All pictures are then shown in the MySpace My Albums menu.

A click on an image loads that image in higher resolution and displays two links to the image on the right side. The important link is entitled "Photo code: copy it to your profile". A click on Copy copies the code to the clipboard. This code can be pasted into the profile or blog post easily. Simply right-click the text area where you want to add the picture and select Paste.

The second option is to add pictures to MySpace that are hosted externally. Users can use image hosts like Imageshack to upload their images and paste them from there to MySpace. This has the advantage that the images can have a greater size than those posted at MySpace.

Imageshack posts all sorts of links to the image after uploading it to their service. A good choice are the thumbnail links at the top or the direct link at the bottom. Just click in the line that you want to use, right-click it and select copy. Then go to Myspace to add the picture and paste it there.

Make sure to test your page before publishing it to be able to correct errors that might have occurred.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
