As adding photos to the site seems to be causing a few headaches, thought I'd put together a quick 'how to'.

You can add photos in a couple of different ways:

1. attachments
2. inline
3. from another site such as photobucket etc

Attachments:

The most popular way to do it imo and simple to boot.

1. Scroll to the bottom of the text entry box and click on 'Add File'

2. A windows dialogue box will open, find your picture and then click 'Open'

3. You will then see the following:

As you'll notice, now you've added one image you're given the option to add another, this will continue for as many images as you wish to add. Simply follow steps 1 to 3 for the next image.

4. When you're done with adding images, click 'Submit' at the bottom and your post will appear with your images shown as below:

Inline

To display your images inline, i.e, at full size within the post you only have to make one small change to the way you add your pictures.

Follow steps 1 to 3 above, but before clicking 'Submit'click on the 'Insert' button next to the image file, this will then place a line of code within the post and your picture will display at full size.

From another site

Photos added that are hosted elsewhere will always display inline, again, the process is very simple.

1. Click on the 'Image Link' icon in the top bar

This will open a new area below the icons

2. Copy your image URL from your chosen site and paste in to the box indicated above, ignore the 'size' box and click the 'Insert' button, this will add the relevant code to your post and display your image.

Quick Tips

1. Ensure your image name doesn't contain any spaces or characters other than letters and numbers, as these can cause problems
2. Ensure your image is one of the following allowed extensions jpg,jpeg,gif,png
Note: JPG is not the same as jpg
3. Ensure your image is smaller than the maximum upload size of 250kb
4. Where possible, ensure your image is no larger than 800px wide and tall - Larger images will be uploaded but will be resized automatically
