Help...How to post pics into the body of a post.
« on: February 05, 2019, 09:50:31 PM »
     Hiya, its been bout 5years now since last posting a pic here, vaguely recall a tutorial that helped a lot. I regained access to my flicker account, And used to take pics using a webcam I don't have anymore. And recall needing to right click in properties to have a proper size to use in the posts. Currently using a macbook air,sony digital camera,or cell phone camera when taking pics. Any suggestion is welcome mates. Be well.

     Hiya and Grendel many thanks for the tutorial It remains a fail with my attempts, and different set up from when I used to have a process back in 2013ish. So far the need being to share pic with prospective new owner and asking to pm a cell allows me to send cell pics via messenger. I was able to access my flicker account and my pics there, Those were uploaded from a logitech cam I since misplaced. Any chance I can include a link to my flicker pics? Since I need to use a password to get to my pics I'm not sure forum members could see the pics there. My macbook air and mac desktop is how I surf the net. Recently discovered Twitch and hope to figure out how that platform can be used to share or build our community. Thx again for your help.Be well.

You can also use tapatalk, although I don't know how.

Or, if you have facebook, upload them to your page, then click on the picture and copy the address from your browser and then paste it into your forum post between img tags.

I use Tapatalk for posting pics. It's so easy it doesn't require instructions.

You can link to flickr pics.

Choose your photo...lower right there's an arrow pointing right...click it...on the next screen choose bb code and the size you want/copy the link and insert it between the image tags.
I had the right to remain silent...

Android phones can take a photo, then post directly from Google Photo. I find that's a very helpful system that allows you to crop and size before posting, with no need to download or transfer the photo itself.
