How to Attach a Picture or Video to a Post

Post by Rescue Remedies » Sat Apr 30, 2016 10:30 pm

To attach a picture:

First you need to reduce your photo size to 640 x 480 - recommended for forum posting.

Just click on the “Post Reply” button at the bottom of the thread.

Under the message text box on the left hand side are the words “upload attachment” click on it. An additional box appears underneath as below:

Filename: Choose File no file selected..... Add the file and choose your photo
File Comment: if you wish to attach comments

Once you select your image then press “Add the file” .........now

Image.jpg will appear under the " File comment" Place the cursor where you want your picture to go click onto the “Place inline” and it will put your picture in the message text box. You can cut and paste to move it (Please make sure you select PLACE INLINE otherwise it shows up on the thread as attachment and does not look right!)

If you would like to add another picture then click onto "upload attachment" again and follow the same procedure.

Good Luck :)
