    Chaetophile, it's not as discouraged as it once was on the previous software versions used for this forum. If you read back to the top of this and read it again, I show clearly how to use your computers' images. The main thing to keep in mind is that whatever you copy and paste, it has to be the true source photo, not a secondary link. For your scenario in your first post, you can still add text under the image, but it's hard to see the cursor. The cursor goes directly to the bottom right of the image. Once the image has pasted, hit enter to get the cursor to the next text line, then you can type more.

    Using the Image Insert button on the post tool bar gives you the option of browsing your computer files for images, or a copied URL of an original image source. I usually use ones I have put to my desktop as a copy. Another option is to use the gallery here, but that does eat a lot of forum resources, and that is why many prefer to use a host site like Photobucket or Flickr.

    As long as you have the original image location copied, you can copy and paste it within your post where ever you like, then hit enter and continue with the post.
    It is not necessary to use the Image Insert button to copy and paste an original image if the source has been copied. Two browsers open during this task greatly helps.....and is actually best, that way you can edit as you are going back and forth

    So as you can see, there are several options. Different scenarios for different needs. It takes a bit to figure out, but it's much easier than it was with the previous software versions here.

    I hope this helps a bit.

    *edit* I see things have smoothed out.

    Edit the pic to your avatar and it should display with your posts. The profile pic only displays on your profile.

    What Phreak said. So when editing your settings, you need to go to the avatar for it to show on the forum all the time.

    Hi all,

    Does this no longer apply?

    Quoting from the forum rules thread:

    How to Post Photos

    Photos should be first hosted on another site such as Photobucket. Please do not upload them to this site as they take an exceptionally high toll in terms of storage space and bandwidth. This forum is already near its allowed maximum storage capacity and outages can be expected if this allowance is exceeded. So please do your part and host the photos elsewhere.

    Yes and it also preserves bandwidth.
    By linking photos in you also get around having to resize them as they will automatically do that in the link.

    New guy here. Testing this process. Thanks for the instructions! Forgive the same photo I posted before. I don't take a lot of photos and I know where this one is on the hard drive. Name:  Jesse and Wing Monarch Pass.jpg

    Here is a quick tutorial of inserting video links.
    First the video needs to be saved to an outside host, like YouTube, which will then generate a new URL for that video. Once saved there, copy the new URL and come back to your post here. In the text box for a post, the top tool bar has a button far right, next to last. That will open an entry box where you paste the new URL. Then hit OK and it will be posted in your new text window. MAKE SURE YOUR CURSOR IS IN THE TEXT WINDOW WHERE YOU WANT THE VIDEO TO BE PLACED. This allows you time to make comments first, then put vid link in, the when the link shows in your text box, you can hit ENTER once or twice to move the cursor further down the page, to allow for more text, or more links or whatever new content you wish.

    First, the button is here.

    Insert URL here.

    Hope this helps.
