Hello there,

How does a person post/load an image from their desktop into a thread? This is for an image which is not on the Internet somewhere.

Please explain this so that a person who is simple can understand.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!

Gail

- When you post a reply or create a new topic, the message editor window has a tab named "Attachments" right below the area where you enter the post text. Click on it.
- You'll be shown a Filename and Description text box. Beside that file name box, you'll see a "Browse" button.
- Clicking on that will open a box which will allow you to select the photo from your computer. And once you select that photo, you can just hit "Submit" button to get it uploaded.
- Optionally before hitting the submit button, you can even enter a description for that photo/attachment
- You can even add another attachment to that same post by using the "Add another file" button.

Feel free to ask for further help, if you need any.

Here are a couple of images which show what it looks like while posting a reply or a new topic. The first image is when you just open up the post editor window. The second image is when you click on the "Attachments" tab.

Thank you for your help, Jaikiran. Much appreciated.

I will do an example here to make sure I am getting what you say.

Thank you, Jaikiran, and perhaps this thread will help others to know how to do this.

Many blessings,
