    Well, you just click the picture icon in the option bar above your post, then click the tab to access the pictures on your device or computer. Select the picture you want, then wait for it to upload. Once you see the address clearly written in the direction bar, just click “OK” and there;s your picture in the thread. Easy!!!

    The mistake most folks make is not waiting for the picture to be uploaded. It usually takes 20 seconds and you would be surprised how little patience folks have. Thing is, we are now HOSTING our own pictures here. Instead of uploading to photobucket, and then posting from there, we are handling it here. It’ll take some getting used to, but once you do, you realize how many keystrokes we’re actually saving here!

    I have loads of patience. But waiting for 30min and only seeing “please wait” actually did get a little old……

    It failed to function for this old man……

    Check the size of those pictures. If you took a photo with a dang SLR, then they will take forever to load if you can get them to load at all.

    I run into this all the time with the pictures my photographer takes. There are programs you can use to downsize them though, and then they go right through with a 15-20 SECOND delay depending on your connection speed.

    I haven’t been able to post for a few months.  Had a guy make a couple changes to my computer he thought may be the problem so am testing now with a picture.

    Very good to be back.  It was really frustrating not being able to post here.  Guess it had something to do with the security setting?

    A little off topic, but kind of related.

    I haven’t been able to post from my phone, pictures or just plain text.  It gives me “that action is not allowed at this time”  or something like that.

    Back on topic, I use paint to shrink my photos to 20% of the original size.  Be sure to save it as a different file name or it will still think that your picture is huge.
