Hi

 

You need to upload the image you want to post from your pc on to an image hosting website (flickr, photobucket etc).

From there copy the link location, click on the 'tree', paste and

you should see the image.

Gosh, what a palaver doing that in Flickr. Difficult to find the URL 'cause it's not the one in the address bar.

@ miskmask. I've noticed that you've mastered the art of posting images using flickr.

 

You can click on 'all sizes', choose which size you want, right click and copy it's location and then paste the size you want.

@miskmask, If you speak nicely to DS, he'll tell you how to post images (using Firefox) without all that mucking about.

 

DS 'fixed' it for me. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Unable to post images

Thanks, DS.

Or a person could right-click and use "View image info".... if using Firefox
