    Do you go to the "go advanced" tab when trying to upload a picture? When you do down towards the bottom there is a spot that says manage attachments. You need tomake sure your picture is saved as a web picture. Hope this helps. took me a while to figure it out too.

    here is my batik table runner made with 3-1/2" blocks. A bit skimpy in length as I didn't do the math, just knew that the 4-1/2" woul make it too big. Should have done it with three 9-patch blocks. And should have paid more attention to the colors as the stars don't stand out.

    FourPaws is right, go advanced, manage attachments, browse your computer for where the photo is saved, click open when you find the picture, then upload on the quiting board screen and wait for it to upload. When upload complete shows you can post your reply. BUT......the biggest thing is you must resize your photo. I don't know enough to quote the maximum pixels or whatever it is measured by - but on my Windows computer, using windows picture manager I can choose to resize to "Large - Web" size and it works. Now go get that photo - we want to see your quilt!

    Create Four Paws -- If you are using quick reply, just select the 'Insert Image' icon that is next to the little filmstrip. When that small box comes up, make sure the tab is on From Computer and not URL.

    Browse for your picture. I try to make sure mine is on the desktop, so it is easier to find.

    Select Upload Image and it should be there for you! But yes, you do need to make sure it is JPG or GIF and not PNG. Plus that it is a smaller size.

    When I size them, I usually halve the pixels to 50 percent. But that is a more advanced type of doing things.

    I've been silently riding this train until last week. I had other commitments that kept me from deciding until then that I could actually get on this train......and all the goodies in the dining car are delicious! I'm still a beginning quilter, so please don't judge me too harshly. I've enjoyed all the companionship and great quilt tops so far. here's mine.

    Thanks Reeskylr. I wasn't too sure what color to put there, but I figured scrappy was scrappy, so that was it. My DH wants me to do another one too, but I think he wants to pick out the colors for me. I think I want to do the next one in 5-inch squares.

    Me too, I just got 40 - 5x5 inch squares in a Tonga Treats from Timeless Treasures. They are batik and named
    Coastal, so I have blues and tans. It would be interesting to see what kind of stars might go with it.
