Open up an album in your gallery.

Go through the brief process of saving your picture(s) to the album.

Then when you want to add a pic to a post, open the insert other media tab, then click 9nsert existing attachment tab, then open your gallery images.  

Select the desired pic from there and it will load into your post.

If you want to resize the pic inside that thread, double click in the pic (it will go blue).

Modify the 'numbers' in the 'size box' to fit your needs.

If you keep the original aspect ratio block checked, (my preference) simply change the first numbers and tab over to the second set and the rest will be automatically modified.  Click insert and it will be placed into your post.

Sounds like a big deal when typed out, but it's all fairly easy.

And if I can manage any of it, you know it's got to be some kind of simple.

Recently had issues with attaching picture files to this site.  I am taking pictures with a digital camera and saving them on my PC.  I looked at file size of each picture and found most were approx. 2MB.  I was able to condense the size of each picture file down  substantially by doing the following which I posted yesterday in the Everything Else section.  This solved the issue for me.  There may be other ways, but this works in Windows 10.

 

Finally figured this out so now I can make my pictures that were 2MBs about 20 times smaller so I can post them.  I have Windows 10 so here's what I do:

 

1. Open up a new Word document

2. Click on the insert tab at the top of the Word doc menu

3. Click on pictures option 

4. Select picture to insert from picture file location

5. Select Compress pictures in the Word document

6. From the compression options that come up - select email - 96 ppi , then click o.k.

7. Right click on picture and rename it and save it to your picture doc files

 

You can then close out of Word and there is no need to save the Word doc as you have done what was needed with the picture.

 

 The file that was formerly about 2MBs is now about 100KBs

 

Hope this helps someone.

 

If someone that is more tech savvy would like to refine my explanation, please feel free to do so.

It means you've maxed out on storage.  Delete some older pics and you're good to go!

Just to provide perspective from this side.  My attachment capacity shows this :You have used 26.06 MB of your 146.48 MB attachment limit, indicating that storage is not the issue. However, when I try to post a picture that I have on my PC that is about 2MB; a message shows up as follows :You are only allowed to upload 747.52kb.

If I condense an individual picture file that is around 2MB to a size that is below 747.52kb. it can be attached.

Hope this helps and does not confuse things.  Thanks for all you do to keep this site going.

It means a single image can't be any bigger than 747.52kb.

Thanks for the update.  This used to be bigger, as up until a few months ago, I was attaching files close to 2MB.  The smaller picture file size limitation forced me to learn something new, which is good.  Now I can condense my picture files down to 96KB, so I have capacity to attach many more files going forward.

Again, thanks for all your efforts to maintain this site.
