    thumbs up How to use the attachments function here on the forum

    For those of you who are having trouble posting pics, below is a short tutorial that will hopefully guide you in adding images to your posts.

    There are basically two ways of doing this.

    The first thing needed is to either start a new post thread or select reply to post. It does not work with the quick reply option.

    Once you have the new window open for posting, you can use the paperclip option below



    or scroll down the page until you see the attachments option.



    Both will bring you to the same new window.

    Once the attachment window is open, you can upload your pics and then select the pics you want to use by clicking on and dragging the pic to the area below



    Once done, select done.

    Once back in the post window, you can go to preview and see what your post will look like with the pics in it.

    Submit the post once finished

    Yes it does. It's unfortunate, but, downsizing isn't much of a problem in most programs.

    I take all my photo's in one size; I can get one photo to the attachment; all the next photos are to big;; that why I gave up on posting photos.

    There are cheap (some free) programs that you can use to resize photos.

    Re: How to use the attachments function here on the forum

    It's like anything else, once you do it a few times, it's easy !



    If anyone really wants to know how to post pictures, PM me and I will walk you thru it by phone.

    But first you must load either Photobucket (that's what I use) or another online storage site like:

    SmugMug.
    Picasa Web Albums. ...
    Phanfare. ...
    Zenfolio. ...
    Divvyshot. ...
    Photoshop.com. ...
    Photobucket
    Flickr.

    Also for editing and special effects, another free program is Paint.net
