The most common problem is the photo trying to be uploaded is too big. If you still have troubles after checking out these tips, feel free to PM me and I will help you figure it out ~

mistral... picture of what? There are rather different processes and requirements in posting a pic to:
1. an avatar
2. the larger pic in your public profile
3. a thread
4. the photo gallery
5. the classifieds
6. projecting onto the clouds like the bat signal

We're here "to serve man." (ruh-roh Scooby!) More info please... And I'm afraid that this is where the adults could confuse your youngest computer wizard.

Right now I want to post a picture of the bat signal. Something Tim Burtonesque. After that, I want to post some of the pictures from a recent sledding trip on a thread. If I could figure out how to do these simple operations, my self esteem would improve greatly.

The basics of adding an image to the end of a post:
1. Use your computer's photo handling software to crop or resize until you have about a 600 x 800 pixel image. Use "Save As" from the File menu and save it to your desktop or into a folder of your choice; using "Save" will destroy the original computer-stored image recorded by a camera or scanner.

2. Enter your text in the composition window (either at starting thread or posting reply). Don't click submit reply yet... Below the submit reply button click on the "Manage Attachments" button. A small window will open; click the top 'Browse' button, find and select the image you saved. Click the top 'Upload' button (it shouldn't be hard to figure out what the 2nd upload button is for). Once uploading is done, the photo file name will appear. You can add more than one image by clicking the 2nd 'Browse' button, and so on. Some people have had trouble with their computer or broadband connection if they add more than 3-4 images to a post; simply start another post if you have more pics. Close the small 'Manage Attachments' window when done; you should see your photo filenames in the 'Manage Attachments' area below the composition window. I have followed this same process in attaching an image to the end of this post.

3. If you're ready to go, click 'Submit Reply' and enjoy the results. If a major problem is immediately apparent you can edit your post in the first five minutes. Click 'Edit,' then 'Go Advanced' and make any changes. PM any moderator if you have a problem or can no longer edit; we can do it for you.

Inserting images between text paragraphs is more involved and I won't confuse you with two sets of instructions. The above technique is very effective; eg, see http://www.airforums.com/forum...nuet-9638.html.

[on edit: Hmm... I'm only seeing the image link and not the image below this post; might be my 'puter settings with the latest Microsoft update... but the link works anyway of course.]

Hello Chipleyboy -- Take a look at your ad and find this section:

Name:   untitled.bmp
Views: 111
Size:  295.4 KB
Note the 'Edit Ad' area at the bottom. I believe this allows text changes and photo insertion options. The Forums are more liberal for picture size in the classifieds area -- classifieds photos are size limited to a 360 x 360 pixel size.

To add pics to an ad:

- Log into the forums and open the ad.
- Look on the blue tool bar under the price info - you should see "edit ad, mark it SOLD" and other choices.
- Click on "edit ad". Now you can change the text of the ad or ad photos.
- To add photos click the "browse" box. You should see a list of files on your computer. Select the photo that you would like to upload. Photos are size limited. Be sure that they are 360 x 360 pixels or smaller and no larger than 60K.

You can repeat this process in the subsequent boxes for additional photos.

Be sure to hit "save changes" when you are finished in the editor box.
You should see your ad post immediately.
Photos larger than the size above will not load.
