    Two ways

    Support the web site by paying to be a Sawhorse

    Than you can upload easily

    Or make the picture a web link and post the link


    Only 35 a year to help support and dip into the vast knowledge base on the site

    steveray - i'm on the design side most of the time, and sometimes on construction side - namely for CA tasks.

    Here's the story on posting pictures. You will see at the bottom right where it says upload a file. Click on that and the rest is self explanatory. I find it a pain because there are two choices with my camera. 2048x1536 pixels or 640x480. The forum will not allow me to upload a full size picture because the file is too large .... I get a link instead of a picture and I don't like that. I take the pictures at the higher resolution so I am not going to resize them and 640x480 is too small. So I upload to Flickr and then copy and paste from there to the forum at 1024x768 which produces a decent size picture.

    Now the rest of the story. I copy the picture from the forum to my desktop. Then I hit edit which has a more options button....then use use the upload a file button and upload the 1024x768 picture from my desktop. Next, I delete the Flickr picture and substitute the newly uploaded 1024x768 picture. It is a pain in the rear but Flickr has threatened me and unless I keep paying them they will ruin the threads so I have been replacing pictures when I have the time. If you choose to do it my way you must get on it while you can still edit your post.

    I would never have done it this way except for not being able to upload a large file. Another quirk is that when storing pictures on the forum server, the limit is four pictures.....if I take them directly from Flickr the limit is five.

    You can get around all of that with a picture resolution that produces a good size picture or you can provide just a link or you can provide a small picture.

    It might take Jeff a while to set you up as a sawhorse.
