Very basic request!

Fri Nov 15, 2019 3:05 pm

Hello -

I consider myself fairly adept at on-line forums and photography posts, but I cannot for the life of me work out how to attach successfully a photo here for review by users! I would appreciate any assistance, please. I have tried attaching via the "attachments" tab, and I see a green bar going to 100% followed by a green tick box. However, when I go to "preview" message, I am told that the photo is not yet downloaded. Should it not be 'uploaded' in any case? Sorry to appear dim!

If the "attachment" does not work for you, you could probably try other ways to show images here. There are several different ways to do so.
You can do it by attaching a URL link of corresponding image here so that we can open that directly(The most frequent one). Make sure the links are accessible for us.Links can be Flicker, Google, etc..
Or you can try to "Insert Image" when you post.
Hope that can be helpful for you ;)

Hi Ian,

If you copy the (correct) URL and post it in the message, we should all be able see the image. You wouldn't have to embed it.

Thanks airkas1 - that works fine. I really don't know why I'm finding this so hard - perhaps I'm over-thinking the process!

Thanks again.
