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:

Screen shot 2013-04-28 at 1.18.43 PM by Astrikos
Copy and paste the thumb code. 
:thumb367944988:
:thumb367944988:

And if you want it bigger: 
:bigthumb367944988:
Silver River by dekorAdum

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

Good luck and happy embedding!

Have you tried adding media? (sta.sh tool bar thing?)

Or you can use thumbcodes!

How do you put thumbs in a comment? I know you can cuz I saw someone who did it with their deviation.

You can copy the thumbcode and it should work.. However, I'm not positive, but dA might have made that premium only for some reason! D:

I have all of the dimensions and such set up already, and I've tried a few things to make the image show, but nothing I've tried has worked.

:iconastrikos:
Astrikos Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2015   General Artist
I don't think so, actually. :c

I think it may have to do with how journals & thumbs are rendered.. Perhaps try screenshotting when scaled up and then inserting so then you have more flexibility resizing within the journal?

// yes ! Hello ! If you don't mind me asking , I see people who have images on their deviantart featured box , I have been trying to put one there but I just can't seem to figure it out , can you help ?

I'd love to! 
However, what featured box? You mean the ID? Or featured deviations? 
You can edit the description and then put thumbnails or external img src links in there.

can i ask an information?
i see some users who put stamps and icons in to the deviation's info.
but i can't put any kind of image or stamp.
do you know how to do it?
Reply
:iconastrikos:
Astrikos Featured By Owner May 23, 2015   General Artist
Go edit your deviantID and then go find a stamp you like. Now scroll down and look at the right side of the page until you find the thumbcode, it should look like :thumb00000000: with the 00s actually being numbers.. Now copy and paste that in (you need the : :s)
And click save.
It should work. If it doesn't, it's because dA makes you need a premium membership to use thumbcodes.. :noes:

Is there any way to get image links into deviation descriptions? Such as < a href="sitelinkhere">< img src="imagelinkhere"/></a>
< a href> works, obviously, but < img src> doesn't.

You can add it in using the sta.sh toolbar when editing deviation descriptions. And you can use thumbcodes as well

It hasn't worked for me before, It just takes whoever clicks it to the image itself, not the link I put in the < a > tags. .
