Help: How to insert photographs

I've been spoilt by my watch forum where photos are loaded very easily and as they're on the forum server, don't vanish if the image hosting company holds people to ransom (yes, you Photocrapit).

So how do I load pics?

I've tried drag and drop (doesn't work) and Manage Attachments, without success.

Advice greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Jim

I think there are various ways, but the way I do it is when you make a post, you'll see lots of icons at the top of the msg box.
Click the paper clip, a new window will open then you can select your photo from there and click the upload button.
Go back to the msg screen and submit your reply.
This only puts a thumbnail of the pic on the post, not full screen.

Probably Admin can advise you better.

Well that works, but only with Attached Thumbnail format.

Anybody know how to insert pics into the body of a post?

Cheers

I believe to embed it in the post you need to use the "Insert Image" button, little mountain looking icon, and provide a link to a image. For that you would have to use a host of some sorts if its your own pictures.

2017 Honda Rebel 300A
1997 Honda Prelude SH
