Thumbs up How to insert pictures in your posts. May take a while to load for dial-up.

G'day ALL.

I quite often get PM's from members wanting to know how to embed pictures from their XL Forum gallery into a post.

About a year and a half ago I had absolutely no idea how to do it and I pestered Bert and John to help me understand the basics.

I've decided it might be helpful if I put together this "HOW TO" with the addition of some screen shots to make it extra easy for those who are new all this techno geekery

I hope the following will be of help.

Cheers

Phil

Hey Phil, that is a great post, even I could undertand it. I am curious about one thing though. There was a time when you could paste the URL of the full sized pic and it would embed properly. It wasn't necessary to use the thumbnail and then edit the URL. Any idea what behind the scene change made it necessary to add a step to the procedure (Bert?). I know it doesn't really matter but I'm just curious.
