I'm begging.........I have always been able to attach pictures in the way that AJ describes in 'how to make your posts better' and even learned how to use the img button....but now on a different computer I can't get it to work, or actually I got a 'snip'/'capture' to work once but not again. I have pictures loaded on to my computer in 'my pictures' as I have had in my other computer but it just doesn't work the same. I get 'thumbnails' to appear that you can link to whenever I try but no actual picture. I did go back and resize the photos in case that was it but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Hopefully help here will help someone else also.................

I'm going to try to attach a couple pictures to illustrate.

EDIT...and sometimes like these below they aren't even clickable.

Edit again.......and now the pictures show...I don't know what worked. It is like taking the truck to the mechanic and it won't make the noise.
well, maybe I don't need help after all...............

from where i am sitting, both of these posts have the same two pictures in them. in that second post can you not see the pictures?

is it possible on the new computer you have a different browser or something?
i am suggesting the pictures are actually posting correctly but you cant see them. also i like the chrome browser and i have used it off and on, but it always seem to glitch on showing pictures/attachments/videos/etc. for some reason whenever i used chrome pictures never appeared correctly, is it possible this you are experiencing?

thanks, Leila.........for me, the first post shows the pictures and the second does not...I never thought that it might just be that I couldn't see them. I don't have chrome, just a better internet explorer than I had before on a different computer than before. I've wondered if it was some 'setting' somewhere but have yet to find anything.

Like Leila, I can see the pictures in both those posts.

Is it possible for you to get a screenshot of this thread and attach it here, as you see it in Internet Explorer?

EDIT after posting this....I can't see the picture of my screen shot, just box with an x and screen 3 jpg

EDIT once more.....now I see the screen shot after leaving and coming back to this post. I don't get it....and I still don't see the pictures in my second post above.
thanks, Jaikiran.........

You probably have pic in different folders - i.e. thumbnails, hi-res, edited and so on. Do a search for sumac on your computer and check out the locations of the files that come up. It may give you a better idea where/how the files are stored.

I suspect, it might have to do with your internet connection where in some cases it isn't able to load the images and gives up and displays those "X" boxes.

yeah thats what i thought....was going to suggest. it could also be not loading the page properly/slow internet as the above poster said. or some combination
.
having a few browsers installed is not a big deal. maybe theres a setting on explorer that was set in a weird way? or idk, i dont use explorer.
if you like firefox better you could uninstall the explorer go to start----> control panel ---> add or remove programs, find explorer and uninstall, although if it came built in you might not be able to remove it easily on windows machine. or something along those lines, i also dont use windows 7 or 8 or know how to get around them, but add or remove programs is a pretty basic thing you should be able to find.

I use Firefox but my husband uses Safari because it seems to stream Netflix much, much better & yet we have the fastest internet in the country. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to this stuff.
