Posting Photos on the Forum
Posted by SW Erdnase on Sunday, September 16, 2018 8:22 AM

Hello all,

I am fairly new to the forum and wanted to see if anyone can help me include a photo on the forum. I tried using the help link instructions but they are not clear and just add to my confusion. When I click on the insert link it asked for  URL and Target. ??? I tried to copy and paste with no luck either.

I just want to post a few photos in JPEG format from my computer. 

Any help is greatly appriciated.

Currently, you cannot post pictures directly from your computer.  You will need a photohosting site like IMGUR or Fotki or one of many others.  Do a Google search for "photo hosting web sites" and select the one that suits you the most.  There are still many sites that allow for 3rd party photo hosting for free like IMGUR, which is what I use.  Upload your pictures to the hosting site via their instructions, select and copy the IMG code and then paste the code in your reply.  Click on "SUBMIT YOUR REPLY" and your picture will show.
