Tutorial: how to post pictures

Request to Mods- please make this Sticky so it stays near the top.

Make sure you Resize images first - if they are too big, they won't be accepted here. To Resize, Right-click the image, then select the smallest size available, then Save.


Once resized:
    1. Hit Post Reply
- like this:

2. Having hit Post Reply, scroll down to see Upload Attachment:

3. Now Browse to where you Saved the re-sized picture your camera or computer.

4. Now Add the file

5. Then put the cursor within your Reply exactly where you want the picture to appear and Place inline

Hi Len, in windows 10, open your picture in paint, select the home tab and then select resize. It will offer you % or pixels, depending on the original size of the pic file change the 100 to 50 in the first box, the rest will automatically change to keep the aspect ratio correct. IMPORTANT....Save your resized photo using "Saved as" and name it so that you can track it down when you upload. THEN follow Gavins instructions using your saved photo. If it is still too big you'll have to play with the % until you find the maximum size that will upload without warnings or problems...sometimes bigger photo's are hard to view on the forum layout so try to get them to view in one screen. You can use the EDIT button to delete and resize as many times as you like...Once you've got the hang of it and the right percentage of the original file it's a piece of cake!
