    I'M BACK-- Ladies/Gent's/ and new members

    I wont go into a long story. I was searching out something on the internet, and somehow the quiltingboard sight came up. I can get around better, tan I did at 1st. The question, I have, I need help. Can some one send me a step by step on how to post pictures. I got to the picture sight, and posted a message, but I didnt see a picture, I downloaded. I have a 1924 singer(model 99) machine, a friend gave me. A grdmother flower garden quilt, I'm hand quilting, and another picture or 2. I appreciate any HELP. Take care everyone. 1 more thing getting ready for our QUILT SHOW in MARCH of this year. March 16-17th. Don

    I think you go to "Go Advanced" and the icon that looks like a picture is to up load

    go to the reply box
    click on 'Go Advanced'.... you will see a paperclip
    follow instructions.... choose image..... it will go to where your images are stored on your computer... choose the one you want? if the pic is showing more than 1000 x 1000 pixels... it will not upload.... go back to your computer folder, double click on the pic... it will take you to an edit program... look for resize.... click the arrows down on the percentage box till the size comes down... save the pic under a new name so you can find it.... i just use the same.name.small and note where it is saved...
    go back to the paperclip, choose image, pick out the right folder and the right image.small and then click on open.... now the screen changes ... click on upload.... it should go in....

    if you do not see icons above your typing box, then you need to adjust your settings in General Settings. Scroll way down and choose WYSIWYG

    Then, when posting your pic, use the picture frame icon with the tree in it.

    Don, go to the top of the page and click on 'Help' and you will find a link for photo posting help there. Good luck! I haven't posted any pics since the change either, but I think it is still the same...

    Oh boy.... I just found a quick link... when you type in the box just above the empty box there is several icons. Starting at the right count in 3--it looks like a picture ... click on that, then another box will open. Pick where you want to get your picture from---either your computer or URL. Click on 'choose file' then after it is chosen you need to 'upload file'. That should do it, but mine wouldn't load... Don't know why but that is how you do it.. Good luck!

    Great to see you back Don, unfortunately I don't have a clue how to post a picture. Sorry, but wanted to welcome you back.

    Welcome back, Don. Here's a link to a tutorial that Patrice did for posting photos.

    Glad to see you're back, Don! Looking forward to seeing your pictures. One thing that might help is making sure the pictures aren't too big. I saw that in someone's post but could never locate the post again for specific details on size. I used a program in which you can size your pictures for internet (both small and large) and didn't have any trouble the first (and so far only) time I posted photos. Good luck!

    Everytime someone asks about posting pics on this board they are told to 'Go advanced' Why? This is how I post pics.
    At the top of this quick reply box there is a tool bar. The fourth icon from the right, it looks like a square with a tree inside it, is the picture icon. Click on it and it will take you to the browse box and you can insert your picture just as you did on the old QB. You can upload pics from your own computer files or click on 'from url' to upload from your blogsite. hope this helps as it is very easy to do.

    BTW welcome back Don. I have been wondering how you have been getting on. Are you well? Or at least getting better?
    You have been in my prayers for some time now.

    This is a good suggestion as most threads that I open with pics have photos that are far too big. It takes ages for them to download and I usually give up waiting. I resize all my photos to 'small web' before posting them and then they download almost instantly and they fit on the page as well.

    I have been trying to figure this out also.

    Thanks, Sweet Peaches. With your instructions, I succeeded. And thanks, QuiltnNan, now I can see these icons that everyone else was mentioning!

    Welcome back Don. I so enjoyed looking at your beautiful quilts that you made. I don't have a clue how to post a picture either but just wanted to let you know how excited I am to see you back on the quilting site. I had corresponded with you before the new format and you were so kind in sending me a pattern that was so much appreciated.
    Can't wait to see some of your quilt work again.
