I was wondering how do you get pictures to go onto the side of your story so people can get a better idea of what your characters actually look like.
While on your story, to the right is an 'add pictures' button. click it and insert a direct url for an image into it. (That means the image has to already be on the internet).
But if you ask me, I don't like characters of pictures. I'd rather the author does their best to describe their characters rather than have a picture. But that's just me =)
how do you add actor names to play your characters?
First you go to your actual story and then on the right hand side if you scroll down there will be a 'Cast' header underneath that it says 'add a character' just click on that and ur golden ^^
i still dont get it.
Still dont get it

Refer to this guide if you want to know how to add picture to your story or if you're having difficulties.
1.) OPEN YOUR STORY
2.) ON THE RIGHT SIDE, THERE'S A BIG PICTURE THAT YOU WANT TO CHANGE
3.) PUT YOUR MOUSE IN THE PICTURE (DONT'T CLICK)
4.) SOMETHING WILL POP OUT
5.) CLICK CHANGE COVER :)

how do I add multiple photos?
Go to 'My Works'. Click on 'Edit' beside the chapter you want to put a picture on. On the right hand side, below the squares that say 'Draft' 'Published 'Saved' or "Unsaved', there's a box titled 'Options'. Below that, there's a part called 'Catagories'. To the right of that, there are two options. 'Basic' and 'Advanced'. Click 'Advanced'. For boxes will come up. The last one, and the one titled 'Photos' is where you would put the image link. You can only put in one photo per chapter.
I've included a photo to help.
Hope that helped! :)
To add picture and Characters to your story, SAVE AND PUBLISH it first. Then you'll see at the right side the VOTE and MANAGE button, below those buttons, you'll se WRITERS TOOLS. you'll see PICTURE button and click it to put picture.
After putting picture you want, scroll down and you'll see ADD CAST. click it and you will be able to add your characters:)
I don't get it
hey friends.. i was also troubled on how to add pictures on my story. and here's how it works for me. for example I searched a picture on google.. if I want that to be in my story, click the picture and it will gets bigger.. there are 3 options on how you will view the picture written on the right side. click the second one which says view the original photo then copy the link and paste it to the multimedia. hope I helped you. :)
How can I add picture to the right? :( Other writers put a cover on the right side of their story every chapter, how can I do this? I pasted a link of my photo from facebook but it says error and it requires http not https :( Oh c'mon! :(
Click on the picture you want with the right mouse button. Then click on the thing that says copy image URL. Go back to your story and click on the photo adder tool. Then click the box with the right mouse button again and hit paste. Wallah you now have a picture
Ok so I looked around a whole lot and finally got myself an answer to this question! I will explain step by step how to add a picture befire you publish a chapter, after you publish it, and how to get those links to work, or upload a picture from your desktop! this can also make editing pictures a lot easier, or even adding multiple pictures! NOTE: IF YOU WANT TO ADD MULTIPLE PICTURES SKIP DOWN TO STEP 18 TO FIND OUT HOW TO GET THE PICTURES TOGETHER!!!
Ok lets start.
1 are you starting out in create a story or have you already published the chapter/story? If you have not published the chapter or whatever yet, then go to step two. If you have published it already, skip down to step 5
2 ok so you have yet to hit the publish button, right? well this is really really easy. all you need to do is go to the right where it says options. in the options selection, you have a choice between basic and advanced. click on advanced.
3 look down till you find the Photos option with a little box for you to write in (its under the video option). in that box, all you need to do is add a link. now, if it says that your link doesn't work because it is https or you want to upoload a picture from ur desktop, skip down to step 10
4 all you have to do now, if your link works, is press save and you are ready to publish with a picture attached!
5 for all of you out there who already published the chapter you want to add the picture to, its really easy! you could either edit that chapter ad follow steps 2-4 or do the following...(which i find easier)
6 go to either your profile or your created work page. click on the story you want to add the picture too. then, navigate yourself to the chapter you want to add a photo to.
7 underneath the vote/add buttons on the top right corner, there will be a little writers tool section. click on PHOTO to add a photo
8 a little box will open for you to add a link. add the link of the image you want. if it says the link cannot be https or you want to upload from your computer, skip to step 10
9 after that you are done. just hit ok and the picture will immedietly pop up as you scroll down!
10 ok there fellow wattpaders! this was the biggest question of mine, and i think what most people are struggling with... the link they post is not working because it is not http, or they want to upload a picture from their desktop... well do not fear!!! i shall help!
11 ok so lets say your link isnt working or you want to upload from your desktop, its easy! or maybe you just want to edit your photo before you add it, well i got ur back! ok all you need to do is copy the image, and save it to your desktop. you need to do this too if the link isnt working. we are going to make it work!
12 if you want to edit your picture before you start, you can go to any editing sight. i prefer to use befunky.com. it is easy to use and free! but i might end up switching to photobucket because we need it to make the links work... i didnt know how to do this before so thats why i wasnt editing of photobucket before... dont know how well their editing is, but ya... im blabbing here lol just edit your pic if you want to lol and then save it to ur desktop again if you are not editing on photobucket lol ill explalin below why we need photobucket (ITS FREE BTW)
13 ok blabbing all done with, here we go! what you need to do is go onto photobucket. if you dont have an account, sign up for free! if you already have one, sing in.
14 you need to upload your picture that u saved on the desktop onto photobucket. just click the big upload button and find that pic! once you have uploaded, you can edit it if you havent already, or want to. its really easy just click the little edit button on the top left corner and do whatever to it! then save it
15 anyways, once you are satisfied with your photo, click the GET LINK CODES button in the top left corner of your photo next to the edit button. its this grey button that kinda looks like two gray oblong ovals attached to one another aka linked together.... lol anyways CLICK THAT BUTTON lol
16 a little pop up will appear. on it will be tons of different links. click on DIRECT LINK. it will say COPIED. that means the http link is now copied. all that is left to do is paste it to ur story using the directions above (step 1-4 if it is not published yet, and step 5-9 if it is already published)
17 VOILA!!! YOU HAVE ADDED A PICTURE!!!
18 here is a little bit extra information for those of you who want multiple pictures... its really easy!!! all you need is paint on your computer and you are set to go!
19 ok so find your first picture, weather it is on google or ur desktop. you can also edit it before hand on befunky.com or photobucket or any other photo editing website. anyways so you have your first picture, right? so just copy the image, and paste it into PAINT application on ur computer.
20 ok so you got ur first photo there. you can crop it or change the size or whatever you want. anyways, once your ready to add ur second picture, go copy it from wherever you are getting it, and paste it to the same PAINT page you are one that contains ur first picture. so now there are two pictures on ur open PAINT page. so you can crop it or change the size or move it around however you want.
21 ok so keep adding as many pictures as you want, and manipulating them however you want so the pictures are how you want them to look. happy with your outcome? save it to the desktop!
22 ok now all you need to do is upload it to photobucket, and if you dont know what to do from their or why you need photobucket, refer to steps 10-17.
23 TADA!!!!!!!! have fun with all those pictures and hope i helped!!!
oh ipiccy.com is also a good editing website if you want to edit those pictures before you add them :)
You have to copy the image URL, just right click on the picture, and a option to copy the image URL comes up and you use that to put the picture into the Writer Tools section, or Advanced options if you're still writing the chapter. Usually, it works better if you have published it first.
Everyone, I was reading these, and awsome4eva 's suggestion worked, follow his/her guide:
Hope that helped! :)
