    There are two ways to add a picture to a post:
    1. Use the Insert/Edit Image button [​IMG]
    2. Use the Upload a File feature [​IMG]

    Option 1: Insert/Edit Image
    Use this for images you find on the internet.

    First, you will need to highlight and copy the URL (location) of the specific image you want to include. Make sure the URL is for that image, not the webpage you found the image on.

    Then, in your post, click on the icon that looks like a tree:

    A blue box should pop up. Paste in the image URL where it says Enter media URL and click Insert:
    InsertImageBlueBox.JPG

    You should see your image immediately:
    UploadedImageInTextBox.JPG

    Type around your image, and post!

    Option 2: Upload a File
    Use this for images you have saved on your computer.

    First, click on the Upload a File button, located below the text box:
    TextBoxUploadFile.JPG

    A black box should pop up. Click Browse and choose the image you want to add from your computer:
    UploadFilePopupBox.JPG
    Your uploaded image should appear below the text box, as an attached file:
    ImageAsAttachedFileCropped.JPG

    In the text box, click where you'd like your image to go. Then scroll down to the attached file of your image, and click on Full Image. Your image should immediately appear:
    UploadedImageInTextBox.JPG


    If you want, you can add small versions of your images (thumbnails) instead of the full-sized picture. Just click on Thumbnail instead of Full Image:
    ThumnailImageAttachedFile.jpg
    ThumbnailImageInTextBox.JPG


    Type around your image, and post!
