Your best bet is to upload to hostthenpost.org, or upload to your Google photos. The URL for the picture can be found on hostthenpost.org site after you upload. The Google one is different, just right click and find the Copy URL item. Then using the URL, post it here on the forums by clicking on the Insert Image button, a little window opens, paste in there, then ok. Then you can submit/post your message, which should put the picture on this page.

Sorry to be so technologically lame, but where is the Insert Image" button on this page? I got the picture onto Google photos and I think I have its ID (file:///C:/Users/Tom/Desktop/AF1QipO9J41vLnKTMQ89x6e2oYOt4MWc-WXNrhrAfT93.htm -- would that be it?) but I don't see the insert image button.

Many thanks

If you look at the "Smiley" button (shows a yellow smiley), go to the right, see the two globes, one with a white chain link, and another with a red X on the chain link? One more to the right is the "Insert Image", but the link has to be from the website page hosting your image, not your C:\ drive or anything on your computer, directly. Take another look.

Wow, I am bewildered. I don't see a smiley anywhere on this thread -- the screenshot of the week thread. Maybe my computer is displaying the webpage wrong, but I don't see any of the icons you mentioned. I did figure out how to get the right URL for the photo, but still at a loss how to get it posted. Thanks for your help, but I just don't see what to do.

When you go to reply, the smiley icon should be at the top of the reply window, with the Insert Image icon about 3 icons to the right.

A much easier way than fiddling around with finding icons, is to type tags and put the image link in between.

Tom,
When you click on "Reply to Thread" it opens with a text box with a string of items from the left i.e. Lower/Upper Case; Bold; Italics; Underscore; Font & Size; Text Colour; then 'Smiley'; Link: Unlink; ... then "Insert Image" followed by "Video"; Wrap & Spell Check.
This appears every time for me.

I think the only time this would not appear, and that might be if there were any restrictions placed on your membership. If so, then contact a moderator for clarification.

Cheers,
Roy3b3

OK, we got your screenshot, so now you're under way.

I noticed you added text just before your screenshot, so I thought another handy tip or two might come in useful.

If, when you're posting, you click on "Go Advanced" (to the right of "Post Quick Reply"), you get more options including the useful "Title" box, so you can add a bold-faced title to your posting (which is often handy to put screenshots in context) and an number of other useful formatting tools as well as a 'review' box.

Also, before you "Insert Image" put two or three blank lines in and add the image to the second line in case you later decide you want to add more text before or after the image. (This is tricky once your image is there). You can always delete spare lines before final posting.

If you notice something wrong later (or even want to change your screenshot), you can edit your posting as there will be an "Edit Post" on the bottom right of your own postings. I would suggest that you should only change your screenshot before voting starts to avoid confusion.

'Hope that helps. Good luck!

Peter.
