  • Inserting Images to your post

    There are 2 methods for uploading pictures:

    1) is directly via the "post editor" when you start a new message or thread in the forum. (This is a good method for when you only have a few pictures to share).

    2) via the PhotoPost Gallery on this forum. This will also allow upload pictures in bulk as .zip file up to 100MB.(This method is recommended for those who have lots of photos to share but don't want to clutter the thread with picture. For example, you can create an album in PhotoPost Gallery to organize your set of pix for a particlar track event. Then you can link this album you just created directly onto your post in the forum. See my Example here.)

    Instructions for Method #1 (Sharing pix with Post Editor)

    First, click on the "Attachment" icon represented by the paper clip pictured below.

    A pop up window will appear.
    If the image you want to attach is located on your computer, use the "Browse" button to locate the image and click upload.
    You can also attach an image that is from the internet. Copy and paste the image's URL into the box and click upload. Do not close the pop up window until the image is uploaded completely.

    After you click upload, it should take a moment (few sec. to few minutes depending on connection speed) before the image is uploaded to the server. You will know when the image is successfully attached when you see the file name in the pop up window like the picture below.

    Insert image directly in the body of your post

    You can also insert the image(s) directly in the body of your post instead of having them attached to the bottom of your message. This way you can type messages/descriptions around the pictures.

    The first part of the procedure is the same as above. After your images are uploaded, click on the "Attachment" icon. A drop down menu will appear right below the icon. Now you can select the image file you want to insert into the body from the drop down menu with one click of the mouse.
