Enter the comment you want to make...

Then click the attachment icon. (It looks like a paperclip)

Once you click on "choose file" another window will open up for you to navigate to where the image is located on your computer.

When you have located the image, clicking on it will automatically enter the file name of the image. Once that happens, click on "open".

You will then need to click the upload button. If you do not see it you may need to scroll to the right of the small window until you do.

Once that is done...

Simply click on the paperclip icon again and select the image you want to insert by clicking on the file name. This will insert the image to your post.

Inserting Flickr Images


Inserting Flickr Images

If you have a Flickr account and want to display an image from there here in the community, Flickr provides the code for you.

Simply go to the image on Flickr that you want to share.

Depending on your version, you will either see a curved arrow to the side of the image or below it. When you click on it, a new window will open.

There will be an option to choose BB Code. Click on that. It will then offer you size options and will give you the code to add to your post.

The image will be displayed at the maximum size allowed in this community. If the image you choose using this method is too large, it will automatically resize it for you with an option for the viewers to see it larger like in the example below.

If anyone is having trouble uploading images because they can't see the paperclip, make sure that you are in advanced mode. If you still can't see it, check your options to what settings you have in the Message Editor Interface. Make sure you aren't set to "basic".
