How to post pictures or photos

Post by ricster »

This gets asked quite often, so here is the easiest way I have found to do it.

Its always nice if the pics or photos are under 1Mb in size to upload as sometimes people land up struggling to get the photos open when viewing. So... a quick way is to click on this link to automatically reduce the size ( Mb ) of the photos
https://compressjpeg.com
You can select about 20 photos (I think) and when the process has been done, you simply download them and save them to a folder ( I create and use a temp folder so I can delete them once uploaded onto the forum, whilst still keeping my original big sized ones)

Then it's simply a matter of clicking on this.....

and then click on these 2 .....
posting 2.JPG
posting 2.JPG (81.33 KiB) Viewed 294 times
and then place your cursor wherever on the message you want the photo to be placed and click "Place inline"
posting 3.JPG

And then Bob's ya Aunty.... click submit and it's done.

Thereafter you get yourself a beverage of you liking and enjoy the fruits of your labour... :lol: :lol: :thumbup:
