Mike you have a couple of choices to post pictures.

First, this program has an option where it will let you post a picture directly from your computer.  Click the 'button' below the text screen that is labeled 'Attachments and other options'.

That will give you a few more options for your post, one of them is the 'Attach:'.  Under that you will see a "Browse" button that accesses your computer and allows you to attach a picture to the post.  I usually copy pictures I want to post to my desktop ahead of time, makes them easier to find.

Second you can use a picture hosting website like Photobucket.  There you upload your pictures to your album, then get a link which you can insert into your post for them to appear. 

The far left button just above the  :)  that looks like a picture in a frame allows you to copy a web-address of a picture and insert it into a post.

I hope this helps, if not call me on the phone and I will walk you through it.

I posted this in another thread, thought I would post it up here to help others who might be looking for the same answer.



If you want to use pictures saved on your computer, click on the 'Attachments and other options' button below.

That will bring up a drop down menu where you can then select the pictures you want to post up, total of 4 in single posting.  Click the 'Browse' feature and it open a window on your computer to make selections from.
(Note: The preview function may not work with pictures.)

Thanks Mike.  I tried this with pictures from my picture file (Windows computer) that were taken with a Samsung digital and others taken with my IPAD.  All were too big to load.  Isnít there a resizing app that is effective?

I am also using Windows and a Samsung.

I know that there is probably a lot better way, and some may chime in with it, but I am pretty simplistic and like to use Windows Paint for that.

My operating system came with it standard and it's a fairly basic and easy to use program.  Those photos I posted above were edited with it, arrows added, etc.

I just right click on the picture icon, that brings up a drop down menu, click on the 'Open with........" button and select Paint.

Once I pull up the photo in Paint, I then use the resize tool to shrink it down to what I need.  I've never tried the 3D Paint.


A quick way to check the size of the picture, right click on it, then select the "Properties" button at the bottom of the menu.  The size information is contained in the report it pulls up.  You can also easily change the file name there as well.


I hope this helps (or doesn't and I will try and correct it.)
