    Pictures

    I wanted to share some pictures. Can anyone explain to me like I am a first grader how to do it?

    Every forum is different and I can't figure it out.


    Thank!

    You can do it two ways.

    One you can go to photobucket as described by LLL. Many here do that.

    I do it this way, I download the picture from the internet onto my computer. When I want to show the picture

    1. Go Advanced (button option to the right of submit reply at bottom of where you post)
    2. click on paperclip icon at top of advanced posting.
    3. A small window will open (called manage attachments) and I hit browse (browses my computer) I select the picture I want to post.
    4. Click upload.
    5. The window will let you know when your upload is complete and I click close the manage attachments window.

    Finish the post and click submit. Your picture will show on your posting.

    I do it this way because I post a lot of pictures for missing people. So, two ways you select which is best for you

    If you do attachments right, it will turn out like this:

    Is there a minimum of posts you need to have before being able to watch pics? When I click on your link, I get the message I don't have the authorisation to watch the pictures.

    Yes Irish, I think the magic number might be 50 posts.

    I remember it's 50 posts to be able to PM.

    If it's not fifty it's between 50-100.

    Not that I know of. If you keep having problems, maybe you could write to one of the mods or Tricia, the owner. Her e-mail is at the top under Notices.

    P.S. I was able to view the picture.

    I only see the advanced button when I hit edit the post. Will the picture show up in the preview?

    I just found the paperclip a couple of days ago...love it! It's so easy.
    You can preview your post to make sure the attachment is there, then submit.

    Holy crap on a cracker, I am just so slow in figuring this out. I can get them posted as thumbnails, but I want to show the entire picture in the post. Does that make sense?
