    I am trying to post a pic for some fabric I'd to sell in the classified ads, but although I get the screen to manage attachments and can select the jpg, there's no button to upload it. I use Google Chrome and don't know what the problem is. Surely, the programmers can make something easier to use! Please help. I'd really like to do some destashing.

    I don't get a "button", it's just the words "upload file(s)" showing directly below the browse window. Do you see that? It's an active link that starts the upload.

    I am using Widows 7 and I don't get the icons shown in Patrice's original post. Any suggestions?

    What browser do you use? I was using IE8 with Windows 7 and didn't see them, so upgraded to IE9 and there they are. If you upgrade, I would suggest delete temp files & cookies and sign out and back in.

    have you gone into your settings and made sure the editor setting is set at WYSIWYG?

    Where do I do that? Does it have anything to do with "compatability view"?

    okay who was the angel that fixed my computer. was it you patrice? thank you. i didn't do anything different except get the WYSIWYG going way down on my settings last nite. god bless you. i feel sane again.

    But when i tried to do it again, it wouldn't work. why can't i click on my pixils, and make sure they are less than 600? i get the page, but the clicking on it , doesn't do anything.

    Looks like you're getting closer, though! Did you by chance browse to just a "shortcut" of the picture, and not the actual file location? The box with the red X makes it look like that's maybe what you did.

    I figured out that QB does not "like" my bmp files. The directions say it will accept bmp files, but not mine!! Once I changed from bmp to jpeg, the photos loaded fine. Go figure! So if anyone is having trouble loading photos, try converting them to jpeg and then loading them.

    that's not too bad, although it does appear that part of the photo might be cut off on the right.
    still, it doesn't eat the page and it loaded lickity-split.

    there are several suggestions in this thread for ways to resize before upload. i recommend your read all the way through. all the suggested methods will work, but you'll be able to experiment to choose the one you like best.

    If you go to the box at the end of this page where you reply in, It has 3 icon on the R- side. the last 1 you see is like a balloon for adding text, then the 1 to the L of that says insert video, the the third one says insert image. Click that one and you get an option to up load a pic. When you click that image icon the page gets cloudy, then a box pops up with URL on the right, you want the box that says Browse, click this & it takes you to your pc where you have pics. stored in files (I alway have mine on my desk top for ease of finding them). Click on the pic you want then the window opens up and a number from your pic will then be loaded in the box of the "BROWSER" & you see on the L side "UPLOAD" (Click on that) You have to do this on every pic. you want loaded.
    I hope this helps you.
    But first make sure you know where your pics. are stored on your pc.

    Your camera settings need to be smaller. Check to see what your are. Your settings on your camera are easy to change pic. size. Find those settings and then click on the camera button to go down to a smaller size, if you have a camera with a window you should be able to see the sizes listed. I set mine between 450-600 and it worked just fine. Don't be afraid to change the settings. There are places on line that will change photos size to 600 or less. Google it.
    Hope this helps

    i have advised many members to make sure that their settings are correct. if you don't see the icons above the typing box, go to General Settings, scroll way down and choose WYSIWYG and save changes. now you should see icons

    I have just set my camera setting to low resolution-I never plan on blowing them up to a poster anyway so it works for me and my pics upload just fine.
