If it's any help I posted a collection of trees and tops a few years ago and Dr Dick ID them. The thread is "triple trees and conversions".

Your pics need to be resized before uploading to IBB.
Or maybe IBB has a way to do that. I'm not sure.
Pixel size is currently 1185x1580
800x600 usually shows up good here without being too big to view.

The code has to end in .jpg or other pic format.
I had to click on one of your pics, right click, select properties and copy this URL - https://i.ibb.co/6bXJVfG/20190627-171944.jpg
Then I clicked on the 'insert image' icon in the XLF forum post box and pasted that URL there for it to show up here.

No reason to feel bad.
It's just a learning curve.
I've never used IBB so I'm not much help there.
But the URL I posted earlier is what to look for there to post them here.
I use Microsoft paint to resize pics.
It's pretty easy to simply open the pic and click on resize.
There are many others probably but that's what I have.
Some pic hosting sites won't let you post to another site (third party) without an extra fee.
So I don't know what the rules are with IBB.
I tried to help another member with some pic hosting site.
Went thru the process as I did your pic.
And the pic showed when I previewed it but not after I treid to post it.
They caught it and blocked it.
