How to upload a picture

Post by philhoward » Fri Jul 28, 2017 2:08 pm

V3.2 Post July 2017 instructions:

Drag and Drop

1. Select your picture from (in this case) my Windows Explorer window

2.Drag it over to the box where you normally write your text, then let go of the mouse (Copy and Paste doesn't work - I tried it :))

3.That should then show the filename in the box that will now appear below

4. Click on the "Place inline" button to add it into the reply box - handy if you want to add text around it

If you're unsure at any stage, see what the "Preview" button gives you.

If you miss out step 4, it will still show the pictures - but below any text and with a white border

If you don't want to drag & drop, instead of steps 1 & 2 above - simply press the "add file" button below the text box and find the picture in your files (steps 3 & 4 are the same)

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
