Depending on what browser you use you may get these boxes instead of the ones above ...

Click on the image icon, then this box (below) will pop up, then click on Browse ...

Find the image from your computer that you want to add in a post, double click on it, then click on Upload File(s) This will now add the image ...


If you want to add another image, click on the image icon again, but the box will look different, you now need to click on From Computer (circled below) then its the same as above ...

Hope this helps ...

Hi, you are almost there - dont click on the number click on 'upload' and then click on 'close this window'. This should take you back to your post - look for and click on 'Preview Post' (below right)
and hopefully you should see the picture in the post. Then Post away my friend


Hope this helps....:ciggrin:

I recently could not post 2 pics out of 4. The problematic twos had a name with 26 characters. I tried a few things, and eventually changed its name to 5 characters and it worked. It seems there is a limitation in the name's length, at least for me.
