I was trying to post a picture, but it didn't work.  I don't really know why since I have been copying pictures and posting them in other places, but I haven't been able to on this website.  I can post video clips though.

 

If the pictures are on another site, see the original post of this thread.  If they are on your computer, see below:

 

You can upload files from your computer using the attach files option:

The image appears as a thumbnail on your post, which readers can click on.  This appears when you  make a reply.  If you quote a post, you have to click on more reply options button to attach files:

Seems a little confusing to me.  Maybe they didn't realize the complexity when they redesigned the site.

 

Can't tell you what to do about Flickr.  Do your images have addresses?  If so, see the first post in this thread.  If not, you will have to upload them to a site like tinypic.  Then you can insert them into your post with the Image icon.

I don't get it. I've been trying to post a customized photo from my iPhone,to be my profile picture. No matter what size I make it...it doesn't load. I'm guessing this is a format issue with the site and IOS?

I think it could be an issue with the IOS since you already understand the size limitation.   Good luck  (oh, and welcome to the site!).

Is there a way to post a picture from one's Flickr page, or from a Word document file?  Using the image tab doesn't seem to work in either of those cases.

 

From my Flickr page, all I get is this when I paste the URL into the image box:  A message reading

"You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

 

(BTW what does that message even mean?  It's my own Flickr page, and the image is the farthest thing from "adult" in content.)

 

And when I copy the image from my Word file, I get nothing when I try to paste it here.  It seems I remember being able to do that a year or so ago, but not lately.

This is a test.  I've been wanting to know how to post a video clip, but I'm not sure I'm doing it right.  Anyway, here goes:

Hmm...  Didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to.  Should have been full size.

 

It will at all times appear as thumbnail when the image is uploaded to the forum from your computer. It may be viewed in full size by clicking on that thumbnail.

 

You must use a different image hosting site and post its url there for it to appear as full size in the forum. We mostly use imgur because it is free and easy to use.

I'm having a problem figuring out how to post a picture.  Sorry.

 

I made a post describing the process visually on November 12, 2014. You will have to go back a page in this thread to find it. This is to upload images from your computer to TCM forum directly. 

 

I will be happy to answer any questions which you may have concerning the method.
