With the new upgrade, you can upload photos directly from your computer or mobile device right into your forum post. No resizing or copying codes. smile

On your post submission form, scroll down below the "Post Icon" choices to the link for "Attachment Manager" Click it!

On the popup window, click the "Select a File to Attach" button. Navigate to the photo on your device and select it.
After the little wheel stops spinning, your file should show up on the list below the buttons.
Select another photo, if wanted, or click the "Done" button to return to the submission form.

You are allowed 4 photos images per post. When you have selected 4, the Attachment Manager box changes, the buttons are gone and
this text appears: "You have reached your limit of allowed attachments."
Just close the Attachment Manager by clicking on the "X" in the upper right corner of the box.
Then when you go back to the post submission form, the Attachment Manager line should say, "(Total files: 4)"
You may upload an additional 4 photos with each reply.

The number of image files uploaded should show next to the "Attachment Manager" link. "(Total Files: 1)"
The attached files will not show in Preview Mode.

Practice in the "Testing Area" forum section

The Attachment Manager link only appears when you click on the "New Thread" or "Use Full Editor" (reply) buttons.
It does not appear on the "Quick Reply" form at the bottom of thread pages or in PM messages.

Good day, trying to attach a photo.
The procedure above talks about "scrolling down past Post Icon. Where is this? I find lots of this confusing. Is a post a message? When I click on New Message (under where I log in) none of this appears, my message (post?) goes out somewhere, without asking me about this Post icon. Am I doing this right?
Thanks, Denis

When you click on "New Message" on the menu that appears when you click on your user name, a form for a PM Private Message. A PM message usually goes to one specific person, like an internal email. Uploading photos into a PM message is not presently possible. If you actually want to post a message on the public forum, you need to choose the appropriate forum section and then click on the "New Thread" button. Here is a link to instructions on how to post on the forum.

How to post a question or comment on the public forum:

If you have difficulty, please use the "Contact" link near the top of the page to explain what you are trying to do and how you are having a problem.
