Could someone please explain to me how to post pictures. I have only found out how to ATTACH them.
Copy and Pasting (eg a .jpeg file) does not work.

Thank you.

Baobab,

You are very close!

Once you have added the picture, you click in the message box where you want to picture to show and then click on Insert (which is next to the file name in the section below the message)



Note that pictures that are large, eg greater than 1000 pixels or sized above 450K are not permitted. First you will need to make them smaller. There is software available to do this id this is an issue.

Hope that helps
David

Hi David,
Tried this, but all it does is insert a line, saying "Attachment..." with the name of the pic. The one I'm trying to insert in the text body is 21.5KB and 387X240 pixels.
Is that a problem?
Thank you

Baobab,

What you are doing is correct.

The [attach ...] text shows which picture will be inserted and where it will go.

If you go to the final step and click 'Submit' the image will be shown in the post. The [attach ..] text will be converted into the appropriate image.

Good luck!
David
