Uploading Images To Your Post

Post by Courtney » Mon Aug 31, 2015 4:44 pm

Hi Nicky, I've spent a bit of time looking around the forum to see if this has been answered somewhere, so my apologies if it has--I was going to post an image in this topic, but wasn't sure how to do that? Is there a way to upload and attach one that will show in the thread itself, or does it need to be a url address we post that links to an image?

Hi Courtney,

I have been wondering the same, and when I saw your question I just had to test it :)

If you look below when you are typing a post, you see Options and Attachments - Under Attachments you find Add Files, and from there you can choose an image and add it. Then it shows up like in this post. It also says you can drag and drop the image from a folder on your computer, for example.

(This image was taken by my husband, by the way. He loves nature!)

There is also an "img" button above where you type if you know the url of the image. This is another way to add images if the image is on the net...
like this one:

Don't use it for posting a link to a photo on your computer as that won't be seen by anyone else. I think Anneli's comment is the way to go for that one.

Hi guys

I feel this thread is a great guide for newcomers to the site. I have therefore moved this to the "Announcements" forum category and locked the topic.

Thanks a lot Courtney for raising this and a big thanks to Anneli and Teresa for explaining the various methods of how this can be possible.

Cheers

Nicky
