    Adding An Image To Your Post

    Should you want to add an image to the post that you are making then this easy to follow tutorial will help you do just that by using the text editor here where the post is been made ...


    1. Click on the "Insert Image" button on the toolbar of the editor.


    2. Click on the "From Computer" link, then "Select Files" button to display the "File Upload" dialogue box.


    [B]3. Use the "Select Files" dialogue box to locate the picture or pictures from your computer that you want to show in your post. To select more than one file, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and choose each picture in turn.


    4. Click the "Open" button to return to the "Add an Image" dialogue box or click on the picture that you wish to upload.


    5. Click the "Upload File(s)" button. The picture(s) will be uploaded in a few seconds and a place-holder will be inserted in your post at the current cursor location.


    6. You can now click the "Submit New Thread" button to publish your post or click the "Preview Post" button to check that your post looks OK before publishing. Once your post is published, the image will be displayed.



    If you have issues using this tutorial, look at the posts further down in this thread ... Also take a look at this way of adding an image ...

    Click on the paper clip highlighted in the image below .. Go through the same process of browsing your computer or the image, then click "Upload" This hopefully will add the image ..


    For this to work in a post or you will need to click on "Go Advanced" first ... Starting a new thread you will see the Paper clip is already there ...

    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 ...

    Can you do me a favour nimrod and start a thread and try to add a picture, don't worry if you don't see anything in your post, just click on the "Submit New Thread" once you have gone through the process of adding a picture ..
