How do I include a picture in a posting?

It's a little embarrasing to admit, but I have no idea how to include a picture when asking for help (or whatever). Could someone please tell me? Thanks!

Dick

It's not hard. When you make a post, before you hit "submit reply" or "start new thread", scroll down the page a little bit, and you will see a button marked "manage attachments".
When you click that, you will get a pop-up that will allow you to browse your computer, and add photos. When you are done browsing, and selecting your photos, you can hit the "upload" button. When it is done uploading, it will either tell you the photos are uploaded, or are too large and need to be resized. You can modify your photos if needed, and upload again, then click "close window". Then you can hit "submit reply" or "start new thread", kind of like this:

I've figured out how to post pictures ok, but how do you write, post a few pictures, then more writing, and more pictures? Instead of all the writing together, and all pictures together.

I was wondering that too, JB. They make much more sense to post a picture directly related to that part of the comment and have other pictures and comments together.

I recall some very effective longer posts, like How to modify and install rock guard on minuet, that used a single picture per post. I have presented some more complex ideas where multiple points were a succession of posts that needed no interruption by stray posters. I posted at a slow time of day in that case. I'd think it'd be possible to enlist the assistance of a moderator to re-order posts if you have a great and noble cause to lay out, but were interrupted by another post.

I too am embarrassed to say that I can't even get a picture to upload to my profile. Every time I try, it says "Invalid File". What's the deal?

I use MS Office Picture Manager. Click Picture on the top toolbar and then select Compress Pictures.

What program do you use? Most (I think) have an option to compress pictures.

The basic "Paint" program in Windows doesn't have the option to shrink pictures (at least not that I can find)

You can use Windows Paint to resize a photo. Photos posted to the forum must be 1024 x 1024 and less than 300 K.

Open your photo with Paint, along the top menu click on Image, then choose Attributes. Change the numbers (evenly) to 1024 x 1024 or what ever you want to reduce it to and save it (preferably with a different name so you do not lose the original).

Good Luck

If you want to post a picture from another website, just do a copy of it and then:

Paste it into your post.......

That just crops the photo, you lose part of the picture that way. That will work if you have extra in the photo that you can trim out, but it doesn't work if the whole picture is just to large (byte or MB size)

Janet is correct, resize is resize. When you resize a pictre it will get smaller, but you will suffer in quality......

Thanks all for the response.

We have the kodak easy share program. I will try and see what happens with the paint.
