    WebMD Halloween Pets Photo Feature
    Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Does your pet have star power? The WebMD Community wants to showcase our members' pets in their best Halloween garb in upcoming Creature Features on the site.

    Have a great photo of Fluffy or Snowball from last Halloween? Or maybe you've already bought the costume for this year? Use the photo upload button when you post to place an image of your pet in costume here in this thread.

    Our staff will select photos to be featured in weekly newsletters, slideshows, WebMD the Magazine and more places across the WebMD site.

    You can submit your photos from now until Monday, September 27th.

    If your pet's photo is selected, we will email you and let you know where to watch for your featured furry, feathered or maybe even scaly baby.

    Can't wait to see all of the frightful and fun photos!

    How do I upload my photo?

    Yours in Health,
    The WebMD Community Staff

    Attention: Posting your pet's photo in this thread grants WebMD permission to use the image as stated above.

    How do you add a picture?

    Hi tiff93722,

    What I did was create a throwaway email address (such as one from hotmail, gmail, or yahoo, then I signed up at to create a photobucket account for my pets. I made the album private, and then I uploaded a .jpg format photo of my cat and dog from my computer to the photobucket album. Once the photo is in the photobucket album, you can simply copy the photo using your mouse and then paste it into a reply edit box and post your reply on this discussion thread.

    Awww...Bindi is adorable! Look at her little tutu. :-)

    Keep the photos coming everyone!

    Hi all!

    While cutting and pasting can work for some it may not work all the time, I'd recommend using the image uploader when you post (looks like a little blue TV screen). Just click that and then it will ask for a URL, you can upload a photo from any public photo site where you've stored photos.

    You may want to be careful using Facebook, though, because when you link to the photo others may be able to see your account and scroll through your other photos. If you're okay with that, then go for it. If not, here are some other places you might use:

    Photobucket, Webshots, Fotki...all free services.

    Most of these sites will provide you with a public URL (link) that you can use to share the photos off their sites. After you post your photo, look for that URL so you can use it with our post editor here to upload your photo.

    We're going to have a document available soon that will walk you all through uploading photos from different sites and browsers. In the meantime if you're having a tough time getting your photo to show up, just yell out, and we'll help you troubleshoot.

    I stole this pirate dog picture from the Pulse Blog and I thought I'd share.

    Wow, I love the pictures of everyone's pets. Maybe I can dress up a horse.

    Olivia_WebMD_Staff replied to clovertine's response:
    Hey clovertine!

    Your photo of Bindi has already been featured! Check it out on the WebMD Pulse blog -- .

    Send to your family and friends. :-)

    I know this sounds stupid but how do you put up a picture? All it says to post the URL, which means website, and the picture of my cat isn't on a website, it's on "My Pictures" offfline
