The quickest way to post pics is as an attachment to your post.
Go to bottom of your screen "upload attachment";
"Browse" to the pic you want on your computer;
"Add the file";
Position your cursor where you want it in the post and click "Place inline"

"Preview" your post before submitting to see what it will look like.

You'll need to reduce the photos...quick way is in the "Paint" program found in most computers.

Senior:

The CBoK has the How To Post pics articles - follow them and you will be posting like mad very shortly .. :D



Although the file upload option is easy, it is limited in that you cannot quote with the pic embedded. Also, being able to view a lot of clarity is lessened with the lower quality required by the smaller size. Using the photohost or any of the on-line photohosting services is pretty much just as easy and allows for larger files/pics.

Using the photohost also makes it easier to search for a photo by someone else later if you need to use it for a reference.

Yes it is somewhat cumbersome, but I like how it pays off for others when needing to borrow the pick without having to search the posts for it.
