Default How to upload

Since the change in formats I have yet to figure out how on earth to upload pictures. Nothing I do seems to work. Have tried the picture icon and the attachment icon. Can someone please list step by step the process for me? This is driving me crazy. If this is in the wrong spot I'm sorry. Can administration move it for me?

When you hit reply, you scroll down to the "Attach Files" section. From there you click on the button "Manage Attachments" and then "Upload Files From Your Computer." Be sure your photo is in JPG format (there are other formats, but JPG is the most popular) and is less than 5 megabytes (you can find this by right-clicking on the photo and selecting "Properties). Click the "Browse" button and find the photo on your computer. Once you have selected it, click the "Upload" button in the upper right corner. It will then upload and attach itself to your post. Hope this helps.

Someone may be able to help if you say what you are trying to post from. I know I can’t figure out how from my Ipad.

I have read of people that have tried larger files that had trouble getting them to load. It appears that 1.9MB is the maximum size of pictures. I agree jpg pictures seem to work well. I also have trouble posting pictures if I don't hit the red reply button. I haven't tried to start a new thread and post a picture. but the paper clip icon should be there when you start a new thread. If you want to post in https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictures-f5/ I would think you would just start a new thread, like you did here. If you want it in the "Gallery" I don't know, perhaps reply and ask at https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...d-t309143.html

My standard reply - In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

Additionally, when I have tried to "insert" pictures, it will take a while even if it is just one picture, after clicking on the paperclip icon. (This is after you have hit the "Upload" button and closed that window.) You will see the "busy" icon at the top of the page or tab spinning for a while before it list the pictures that it will attach.

Janey - Neat people never make the exciting discoveries I do.

These are the instructions which you can find as a 'sticky' thread at the top of the QB Help forum.

Be sure the upload page is full screen or you won't find the button to click on.
