    Talking How to add pictures to your post (WITH PICTURES!)

    I've noticed a few people asking how to add pictures to their posts, so I thought I'd take some screen caps and show everyone how to do it Hopefully the diagrams will help other visual learners like me! Click on any of these pictures to see a larger version.

    1) Click on the Insert Image button:
    Click image for larger version.

    2) Choose "Select Files:
    Click image for larger version.

    3) Choose files from your computer (you can choose more than one! And if your screen looks slightly different, don't worry. I'm using Windows 7 and Mozilla Firefox, if you use a different operating system or a different browser then it will differ slightly) and when you are finished choose "Open". You can repeat this step if necessary:
    Click image for larger version.

    Click image for larger version.

    Ta-da! Simple, right? Hopefully that helps some of my fellow forum buddies And yes, I used pink arrows. I like pink. Deal with it

    Thanks for the post Dee. I am sure there a plenty of newbies out there that need the help. Also they will probably have to resize their pictures to a smaller size, but that is different with every computer.

    Thank you, my daughter usually does this for me and she doesn't get home very often. Meant to work on this some over T'giving but we didn't have time.

    I've had to do that on other forums, but here they seem to resize all on their own. Maybe that smartiepants Al has it all built in to do it automatically

    I posted a picture the other day just as you described and it was there and now it is gone. I'm not sure why and it is not important but I would like to know what I did wrong. BTW, it was in one of the groups if that makes a difference. Thanks!

    This isn't working for me, I am on a Mac, I took the picture with my iPhone and the photo is in my photo stream so can normally upload to other sites from there. I keep getting a message back saying it failed to upload. Can anyone with a Mac advise please.

    it may be your files are too big. Can you resize to a smaller size file.
