if it is, what do you do there? do you type in the # of the photo?
thanks for the help
When you click on that, an area opens up that has a button labeled "browse"
If you click on "browse", another, smaller window will open. Use this window to 'browse' on your computer, to find the file you want to upload.
Click once on that filename. Then hit the button at the lower right that says "Open".
That will select the file to be uploaded to the forum. And the small window will close.
Now you will see your filename in the box beside "browse".
At this point, you can add a comment by using the "File comment" box below it. I don't use that box. Just makes things confusing for some people.
Now you can hit the "Add the file" button, and the file will be uploaded to the forum.
Once uploaded, the page will reload, and you will see your filename below the reply box. You can leave it alone, and it will appear at the bottom of the post. Or you can click somewhere in your post, and then hit the "Place inline" button. In which case, the pic will appear at the point where you clicked in the post.
Note that JPG's are probably best. But that PNG's will work as well, on this forum.
Also note that for best viewing on this forum, editing your picture to be 800 wide, before you upload it, is a good idea.
