It's sort of complicated:

Scroll down to "Manage Attachments"
Click on the first "Browse" button.
Chose a photo on your computer (probably from the "Pictures" area)
After you click "Open" click on "Upload"
Then "close" the upload window
Then I would "Preview Post"
Then "Submit Reply"

I've attached a sample photo that I just uploaded in this fashion

Or, you can embed any image that is hosted on the internet as long as you have the URL that leads to the image only. In fact, this is the preferred method of 'attaching' photos to posts on this forum for several reasons.

1) In the post editor, position cursor where the image should appear in the post
2) Click the 'Insert Image' icon (yellow with gray mountains and moon)
3) In the resulting popup, paste the image URL, then click 'OK'

That's it!

So the method that I use seems to work okay. Go to "Go Advanced" > click on "Attachments" (paperclip icon) > Choose file > Click "Upload" (then close window once uploaded) > Submit. Give that a try and see how it goes!

Cheers,

Erik

I used IMGUR photo hosting. you have to sign up first. it only takes minutes.

upload your picture then open it and copy the link from "BBCode" and paste it into the body of your message. like this.

[img]https://i.imgur.com/ptUOwtd.jpg[/img

note I left off the final ] the end would normally be [/img]

And this puts your image up full size in the post instead of having to click on a little image to open it full size.


Its best to resize the image to 640 or 800 so it fits on the screen or it will screw with the thread

this is the image above.
