Inserting Photos

  • I wonder if someone can explain to me in very simple language how to insert an image from my PC. 

    I have read the Help topic and pressed the icon above.  No joy.   >:(
    I then spotted a Choose File in the Additional Options below where you post messages, so chose this, uploaded 3 photos or so I thought and then when I went to preview - Nothing there.  ???

    Do I have to have a number of posts before I can choose this option or is there a step that I am missing out.

    Thanks.

  • When you are posting click on "additional options" which is below your text box.  Then click on "browse" to attach your photo.  You can only upload 1 photo in a posting.

    You will see that the attachment size is restricted and you will need to resize the picture.   Microsoft picture manager is very quick. Click on web small.

    If you still have problems send me a private email.  Let me know which program you use for your photo editing.

  • There is an excellent open source photo editing program called Gimp which will resize photo's for publishing on the internet. It has many of the features of Photoshop and uses similar editing tools and it is completely free.   There is also a  64 bit version which is a beta (experimental) version but it works fine for me on my Windows 7 PC.

    To resize a photo using Gimp, first make a copy and rename the copy to avoid degrading the original photo. Then open it in Gimp, click File, Save, tick the, ?show preview in image window? and scale as necessary.
