Here are some simple (I hope) instructions on how to upload pictures to the forum. Problems? Please ask rather than struggle.

Please note, If you try to upload multiple large images then be prepared for a long wait, upload speeds are usually much slower than download speeds for broadband users (around 10x slower). If your images are several MB in size then consider resizing them locally first. Images uploaded to the site will be downsized, but the resizing can't start until the entire file has been uploaded upload will still take time. Many modern camera's take images in excess of 5MB, if you attched 3x5MB +images you could be in for a long upload time.

Create or reply to a thread, enter the subject of your message and the message itself.

To attach a picture click the Add file button - browse to the file you want to attach (stored locally on your computer).

choose a file

Add as many pictures as you like, they will be listed as shown below..

select several files

Click submit your post will look like this, one thumbnail for each file attached. Clicking the thumbnail brings up a larger view.

If you want your image to appear in the message itself then after selecting the file to attach you need to click the insert button.

insert images

The output will look a bit like this (this example shows one image left as a thumbnail and one inserted into the message.

Hope this helps! I'll improve it when time allows.
