How do I put a picture into a caption of a picture I’ve uploaded to myspace.com? I see others doing it, but I can’t figure out how.
While it might sound funny to put a picture as a caption on another picture,
it makes a lot of sense if you’re trying to add an emoticon or other icon.
I’ve already covered How
to put a picture in a comment on MySpace, and while this seems different,
it’s really very, very similar.

The only real “trick” to know for both this, and for comments as well, is
that you can use HTML. That means in your caption you can reference an image
stored anywhere else on the internet, or in your own uploaded pictures.
Start by following the instructions in How
do I put a picture in a comment on myspace.com? to upload a picture, and
locate that picture’s URL.
fact it can be anywhere on the internet, as long as it’s accessible by some
Now, go to Add/Edit photos on your MySpace home page and
click on Add Caption.
Now, in that caption, where you want that picture to be, enter
IMPORTANT replace the URL (the
“http://myspace-355.vo.llnwd.net/00573/55/34/573024355_l.jpg”) in this example
with the URL to your own picture.
The picture doesn’t actually have to be on MySpace, in fact it can be
anywhere on the internet, as long as it’s accessible by some URL.
That’s all there is to it.
Now, that whole “<img…” thing, that’s just HTML – the language of web
pages. You can use other HTML as well. For example, if you just want to place
text, and have some of it be bold, enter something like this:
The word bold will be bold. You like color? Try this:
The word “red” will be red.
As with a picture in a comment, if this doesn’t work the most common cause
is not doing it exactly right. HTML can be picky. Make sure that
you’ve copied everything you see here exactly the same way, and that you’ve
copied the URL to any pictures you’re using exactly. It all has to be right, or
things cannot work, or look really, really messy.
If you really want to experiment, pick up a book on some basic HTML. You can
get quite creative.
