Rusty, our moderator explains how to upload an image
Rusty wrote: The first thing to do is make sure the image you intend to post is small enough in size. To put something into a post, you make sure your longest side is no more than 500px. What I usually do is, while in Elements, use Image > Resize > Image Size and change the resolution to 100 or maybe 72 and then change the Pixel Dimension of the longest side to 500 or something a bit less. With all 3 blocks down at the bottom checked, everything stays in synch. Now, save that file with a new name so you don't screw up your original image and use this only for posting.
Now, here on the Forum make a post (as you obviously know how to do) and look down just below the white space where you type and, when you reach the point in your narrative where you want to insert a picture, click "Upload attachment". You navigate on your PC to the file you just resized and saved and open the file. Here on the "forum post page" you now see the option to "add the file". You click that and, after a moment, your cursor is back up in the white space. Put your cursor onto a blank line and... just below the white space, click "place inline or make inline or something like that".
It is a lot harder to explain than it is to do. Give it a try.
this is what to look for under the text box
after the image has been added,
The file needs to remain under 256 kb.
another option for resizing the image to 500 px, would be in the 'save for web' dialogue box.
this is written for mac users, but it still might be helpful. 'save for web' is at the bottom of the page.http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage/ph ... stone.html
