    For Premium Members it's easy since you have Upload capability.

    1. When creating or editing a post, below the message box you will see a Button "Upload a File", click that.

    A Browsing window will come up and you can navigate to the Photo on your computer.

    You will then see the Photo uploading, when it's finished, you will see it's a Thumbnail below the message.

    2. Next to the Thumbnail you will see a small Button "Full Image". Click that and it will insert the full sized photo into your post.

    That's it! Easy just 2 steps.


    Note that if you forget to click "Full Image" the photo will still be inserted into your Post, it's just it will be inserted as a Thumbnail instead of Full sized.

    Also Note, that the photo will be inserted at the point of where the Cursor is in the Message.

    Normally you would want to type your message, then press Enter twice to get the Cursor a bit below the text you typed. If for some reason the photo is too close or you uploaded multiple photos and you wanted text in between them, it's easy to just click into the message box next to the photo and then press Enter to then space out the photos. Once you have tried it a time or two, it's easy to get the hang of it.


    For Registered Members without the Premium Membership:

    If you are a Registered Member Follow the steps below. If you have not Registered yet (It's FREE to Register) you will not be able to create Threads or Posts. And hopefully you will see the value to this Forum and Upgrade to a Premium Membership and help support us. Premium Members can Upload Photos directly from their Computers.


    To Insert a Photo as a Registered Member:

    When creating or editing a post, Above the message box you will see an Icon that looks like a photo, if you Mouse Over it, it will say "Image". Click on it.

    A small window will popup, in the area next to the words "URL:" you will paste or type the website address where you have your photo online.

    For example at Pbase, that URL could be:
    http://www.pbase.com/Myphotography/image/164795893

    You would Paste or type that in the URL.

    But very importantly, you will need to add ".jpg" to the end of it or the forum won't know it's a photo. So the example URL will look like this:
    http://www.pbase.com/jimfoxphotography/image/164795893.jpg

    Click on the "Insert" Button, and the Image will be inserted into your post.

    Also Note, that the photo will be inserted at the point of where the Cursor is in the Message

    Normally you would want to type your message, then press Enter twice to get the Cursor a bit below the text you typed. If for some reason the photo is too close or you uploaded multiple photos and you wanted text in between them, it's easy to just click into the message box next to the photo and then press Enter to then space out the photos.
