When posting photographs I do it basically the old way. I type in the Quick Reply box and then hit Go Advanced. From there I manage my attachments. Because I use a digital camera and not a smart phone I have to transfer the photos over and reduce the file size before I can post, so they are already in my Downloads.

When the attachment box pops up, it is defaulted into the old vertical layout (at least for me, Firefox user). I have to manually change the window to a horizontal layout where the actual attach file button is on the far right. It took me a surprisingly long time to figure out just to spread out the window.

Once I do it, it stays for the rest of the day but resets the next. I'll have to do some timing stuff to see if it defaults every time I'm logged out (I never stay logged in on a site if I am not actually sitting at my keyboard). I don't always post pictures every time I'm on!

Please see Iceblossom post above. I use Chrome and this is the way Manage Attachments opens for me


I have to expand the window sideways to find the Upload button


I would like to request that Techs move the button to avoid confusion and frustration to members who try to post pictures


I do realize that moving items on the web page might be a big ask. Thanks for consideration

as much as i love you guys, that is not something i will ask for.
just expand the window or scroll right - just like the illustrated image upload guide i created (and have posted about a bazillion times now) - details.

I hover over most icons to see what they are for. When I hovered over the little computer, it only gave me a string of numbers. Can you tell me what this is for? TIA

Looks to me that it is an IPv6 address

OK I have tried to read everything. May have missed it. But I don't see a way to add photos to my albums since the change.
Sorry.

you can only upload.
look for the words "Upload Pictures" in the lower left, under your album.
until the colors get changed, it might not be that easy to notice.

I looked under three albums , even with a magnifying glass over my monitor. All I found was dirt and fingerprints.

Thanks. PatriceJI can wait for better colors.
