So being the computer whiz that I am I used to put pics on photobucket and then load them here but since photobucket has gone astray I was wondering how everyone does the pic thing now. Do you use a cell phone or a file of some type? Like I mentioned I am such a whiz when it comes to this stuff its scary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Thanks for the help

Take a picture.

Save where you know it is with a name you'll recognize.

Write your post.

At the bottom of the screen is a box CHOOSE FILE. Click it.

Explorer or wherever your files are will open. Click through until you find the photo you saved. Double click on the icon.

The name of the photo will show where before it said NO FILE CHOSEN.

Click on ATTACH THIS FILE.

The icon of the picture will appear above the boxes. Next to that picture, it says something like add picture to post. Click on that and the name of the file will be placed in your post where the cursor was..

Hope this makes sense Stephen. Give it a try. If it doesn't work, call and I'll walk you through.

Hope it works! I miss you and your fly posts. I

IMGUR.com is what I use that way I control my content. Like Photobucket you are posting a link to content stored somewhere else.

When you upload content here it's on this sites server.

Stephen-

I do the Dale method, just attach directly from my computer. Not always necessary to shrink the picture. I edit to suit my taste (rotate, crop, enhance, etc), save a copy, and then compress the copy only, keeping the original intact. The compressed version is always loadable here, specifically within the size limitations.
