Inserting images
Posted by Ramon on Tuesday, August 30, 2022 2:35 AM

Hi,

I'm a recently returned member and things seem to have changed a bit since I was last here.

Could anyone guide me through inserting an image to posts or point me to a forum description of such. I am familiar with it on a couple of other forums but do not understand the box 'Source' - what exactly goes in there

I store my images on Google Pictures  and usually select 'Copy Image Address' which is then inserted between image brackets.

 

Any help would be appreciated so that I can join in again

 

Many thanks - Tug

I use Postimage, so I'm not sure the choice of links is the same, but I just paste that link [as-is, with no extra brackets] into the 'source' box of the Edit/post image menu. The photo appears in the post, then I automatically hit the 'line jump' button to put a white space between the photo and any additional text, just for readability.

Hope it helps...and welcome back! Welcome Sign

Thanks Greg, It's a bit late now but I'll try that tomorrow and hopefully get a few pics up.

Thanks for the welcome too - nice to be back

Got a 403 error before.

I use Postimage, too.  I just select the "Hotlink for Forum" link and paste it into my posts.

Ramon, you might want to have a look in the Forum Technical Assistance forum, too.  There are many posts about posting images, more than we've suggested here.  You'll get a good range of choices.

In addition there is a major section of the forums, Feedback, Help and Testing

This rarely read section should be on everyone's list to check weekly- and whenever you need help, post in the Help forum.
