How to insert pictures.

At the current time.... we are attaching pictures to a thread as opposed to inserting them.
You must click on and be in the GO ADVANCED editor mode.

It appears that these instructions may not work from a phone.
Xsleeper has added this information that may be helpful to you.....

Try selecting "desktop site" from your browser settings. Not all full site options are available on all mobile devices unless you request the full site, because the mobile site limits your options.

Once there..... look for the paper clip icon. It is shown below in the typical location
but can be anywhere depending on browser used.

File size and physical size of your image are important. Too large it will not load. Try to keep the physical size less than 900px x 900px. Convert .png to .jpg to keep file size small. If you post as .png the board may reduce the physical size of the image so much it is difficult to see.

More attachment information.
When you click on BROWSE (1) you will be in your computer. After you click on the picture you want to attach.... click on UPLOAD (2). Your pictures name will appear at location (3). You can upload more than one at a time. Just go thru (1) and (2) again. The list of attachments will be seen at location (3). You can delete any picture by clicking on the REMOVE button to its right. When done click on CLOSE THIS WINDOW (4) to close attach window.

If you don't see your file name at location area (3) it means the picture did not load.
It may be too big for our attachment system.

To resize your pics, here are two suggestions:

Picresize (an online resizer)
Irfanview (a free graphics program)

DIY graciously gives each member 10mb of picture storage. It is up to you to resize your pictures. If you post pictures directly from your phone they can be 2-3mb each and posting 3-4 of them will eat up your entire storage space. Take the time to understand your picture size so that your storage lasts as long as you need it to. If you need help or your quota has been reached.... send me a PM and I will help you. You'll see me as editing many threads and pictures to help you maintain your storage. At the current time there is no plan to extend the 10mb of storage space so we must all work together for effective use of our attachment allocations.
