How To Add Pictures in your Posts and PMs

2. Click on the "Full Editor" button :

3. Click on the "Choose Files" button :

 

pics3.jpg

 

This will open a Dialog Box to your Computer Files. Select the picture file you want to add and click "Save" (or "Open") to upload the picture.

 

4. Place the Cursor where you want the picture added. You can use the Icons (circled) to position it on the line :

 

pics5.jpg

 

5. Click on the "Add to Post" text under the Thumbnail of the picture. This adds the Attachment Code into the message at the position you selected :

 

pics4.jpg

 

6. You can add more Text after the picture if you want, or add more pictures (limit of 8 per Post).

7. Click on the "Submit" button. You can use the "Preview" button to make sure your layout is OK before clicking Submit. If you need to Edit your Post again simply restart the process by clicking on "Edit" again. You MUST use the "Full Editor" to post extra Pictures.

Thanks Dan. I tried this and it works. I was getting nowhere before. Of course I was able to add pictures with the Attach File but did not realize that you can than also insert this in the text section.

 

Note to Ray. You have to type text first, then insert the picture as Dan showed. Then you can add text underneath the picture you just inserted and continue with more text after (perhaps) hitting the enter key.

continue with more text after (perhaps) hitting the enter key.

 

Hitting the Enter key while you are in the Edit Box will send the Cursor down one line - it's a good idea to leave at least one blank line between your Text and the Picture, otherwise the Text can look "crowded" with the picture.

 

Play around a bit with the Formatting Icons until you are happy with the way it looks.
Using the "Preview" button shows how the Post will look before it's Submitted, but some of the Text may be Justified slightly differently.

 

Your Post can be Edited at any time if you find you've made a mistake (spelling, layout or other) - Just use the Edit button at the bottom, as shown in the 1st pic of the main Post above.

 

Cheers, Danny

Just to try this let me do the following:

Our hero

 

Then there are some of us who were confused:

 

hero 2.jpg

Hero number two.

 

End of try.

Thanks for providing this, Danny.  I'm sure it will help a lot of folks.

 

In step 3, in the dialog box that pops up, it is possible to select multiple pictures for uploading in one pass, either a list of sequential files by clicking the first file in the list, them pressing the Shift key while clicking on the last file in the list, or by holding the Ctrl button and clicking on individual files in the list.  I don't know what the limit is, I have done as many as 6 in one pass.

 

This is one more advancement of the new MSW over the old, and I like it a lot! :dancetl6:

Peter,

Basically the same way as posts.  Except hit the "Use Full Editor" button.  You'll see the "Attach Files" down to the left.

Thanks Dan

 

Now I know how to make my log look better with explanations of the photos.

 

I'm using Spectrum and I don't seem to see an Edit button at all, but I do have Post and More Reply Options. I used More Reply Options and it worked just fine. The only edit button I see is after I make a post, I have an option to edit if I want to.

Folks, my issue is a little different.  When at home using Win7 and IE 9, no problems.  At work (shhh! don\'t tell the boss :)) I have XP and IE 8.x.  At work, the editor selects the font size for my posts at random.  Unless I keep a close eye on it the text will be shown from anything between 14 point or 6 point, bullted, supscript or subscript - Microsoft (or the board) simply decides what it would like to use -- hence the large number of edited posts I have when i go back to fix them :)

 

It seems to be a compatibility issue between our current forum editor  and XP and/or IE 8.x

 

cheers

 

Pat

Pat,

It's due to XP and IE8   Actually, I think part or most of the problem is with IE8.  I saw some weird behaviors before upgrading my work computer (Win7) to IE9.

I think I just found a bug...  My Win7 PC was "updated" (thanks Microsloth) to IE 10... now pictures don't upload.   I'm rolling back to IE9.

 

Edit:  Rolled back... IE9 is also freezing when uploading pictures.
