PE: How to embed things

Wed May 8, 2013, 4:25 AM


Written by Astrikos for projecteducate's community week. 
You may have noticed GIFS and hot things in people's journals and profiles. 
With HTML and CSS, you can add some hotness to your journals and profile.

Pretty neat, yes? 



Embedding Images and GIFs

DeviantART Images
    Images on dA can easily be linked with thumbcodes. 
While on a deviation page, all you have to do is scroll down and look right until you see:

Copy and paste the thumb code. 
:thumb367944988:
:thumb367944988:

And if you want it bigger: 
:bigthumb367944988:

And bam. There you are.
If that's not good enough, you can play around with the size like this.. .
<da:deviation width="Number"  id="deviationID">
It's the thumbcode number without thumb in it... 
Trying it out... 
<da:deviation width="380"  id="367944988">
Gives us:
<da:deviation wytiwyg="1" width="380"  id="367944988">

If you want to play with height of dA deviations (with HTML) , you will need to use the method explained below. 



All kinds of images, not just deviantART ones


With this method, you can link any image you want from the internet(including dA images) , however,  HTML is involved. 

And now.... 
Go find your adorable/sexy  GIF/Image on wherever. Tumblr is especially useful. So is google. Express yourself.

The code is... 

<img src="Direct Image URL">

That's it! Easy. 
Right click, then select Copy Image URL to get the direct image URL.

And then you're done!



Resizing: 

You can resize things the HTML way.

(Width: 310) (height: 430) 
(Code: <img src="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyhnrtNYq41r7e6yco1_250.gif" width="310" height="430">

Default sizing

Or for deviantART images, sta.sh, all you need to do is drag and drop and resize that way. (in Journals) 
You can resize the HTML Way.. 
However, you need to have images that link to the deviation. 

Linking Images


Perhaps you want to create a graphic for your profile page that links to something else. 
First, find your image and upload it to st.ash or any other hosting program. Like flickr, tinypic, etc. 
I find sta.sh to be much quicker. 

I'll use project educate's header image:
 

I the image URL so  I right click on the image,
and select copy image URL
:bulletgreen:  fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/o/2013/024/0/0/350289350_646745_322748439_464988_header2.png

Not : http:/communityrelations.deviantart.com/journal/Project-Educate-Continues-261205783  (this is from the address bar, not from right clicking and getting 'copy image URL'.) 

I take the image URL and paste it into this code format: 

<a href="whatyouwanttheimagetolinkto.com"><img src="directimageURL.png/jpg/gif"></a>
For your direct image URL, you can find by right clicking and selecting copy image URL. It will end in an image file extension. (.jpg,..png,.gif,etc.)

In our example, this gives us the code: 

<a href="projecteducate.deviantart.com"> <img src="http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/o/2013/024/0/0/350289350_646745_322748439_464988_header2.png"><a>


In turn gives us:
 
Click it! It will redirect you to project educate! 


You can also apply the resizing methods shown above. 

Embedding Video

You can also embed snazzy youtube videos into your journals! 


Take a look at this code:
<da:embed profile="video type" id="ID of the video" />

Note: The ID means this....
ht<i>tp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_profilepage&v=CIx0P1KDkVk


An example would be 
<da:embed profile="youtube" id="CIx0P1KDkVk" />

And that gives us: 
<da:embed profile="youtube" id="CIx0P1KDkVk"/> 
:la:
Compatible video types: 
:bulletpink:Youtube
:bulletpink: Vimeo
:bulletpink: Film 

Embedding a music player

I really want to image link one deviation to another in the description but the thumbs aren't working. Are they really just a premium thing..? Is there any way to do it other than .stash because I would like for the link to go directly to the deviation and not the .stash page

I think that in a description thumblinking is for premium only, which I find extremely weird! D:

Not working for me. I tried embedding that cat gif up there and it worked immediately, but for some reason when I try to embed:  

 <img scr="38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ly0…" width="500" height="281">

it doesn't work. Any ideas? I'll be your best friend if you can help! I'll even throw in a free hug!
