Update how to post photos

It sure would be nice if one of the admins could update this thread with the current instruction for uploading and including photos in the posts.

What are you looking to do?

BTW Picasa is no longer a site that you can use to post photos on forums.

Really nice that SMB forums hosts photos. Few sites do that anymore. Easy to upload directly in a post. Especially if you are using Tapatalk.

FWIW, there are a few ways to upload photos, here's one......

I upload the photos to my gallery (and usually resize them smaller), then copy and paste the BBcode link below the image in the gallery to my post.....Voila!

I tried that and it got time consuming. Do you open two screen windows to this forum while you're doing that?

It gets faster the more you do it. Takes me just a few seconds, now.

I think maybe Larrie was trying to get all the photo upload wisdom tacked to the proper sticky. We've got instructions floating all over the place.

Select Browse from the pop down menu. This will open files on your computer. You may have to open the correct folder if the pics are in a folder, then double click the image.

Select the picture by double clicking it. In my case here I selected a hydronic schematic I have in one of my folders.
