Trying to post a picture but I guess it didn't work.

I opened a new thread - this one. Went to manage attachments and selected a jpeg image from my hard drive. Clicked on the upload button and waited for it to finish - no picture 3 times!

On a good day, I feel reasonably technically competent. On days like today if feel very Neanderthal-like.

Anyone have a suggestion?

You need to go to someplace like Photobucket - upload your picture there - pick the [IMG} selection and copy it, then just paste it to your message while doing nothing else.

Andy the pictures you are trying to upload are probably too big. As a test, try uploading a very small picture and see if that works.

GB:

I don't think they're too big. I used scaled down versions of the hi-res originals that are more appropriate for online viewing. What's an appropriate sized file in kilo, mega or giga bytes?

Kitchenelf:

So I can't upload directly from my hard drive to a post I'm creating on this site? In another thread, Goodweed was directed (by GB, I think) to use the Manage Attachments process to put a photo into a post. Based on that, I was trying to do the same.

All I know is how I do it. I go to photobucket.com, browse my pics, select the one I want to upload, click on submit, then there are 3 options to copy and paste below the pic - I use the one that starts out [IMG]gives the url of the photo and ends with [/IMG]. That is the last option.

I copy that line and paste it into my post.

It's my ex wife-in-law's dog and that's one of her twin boys. Isn't that the sweetest - she took that pic in the dark - the dog sleeps with his head on top of Jackson's head.
