    Hi all.
    I'm having a bit of a dullard moment here. They happen quite often as it happens :snorky:

    How do I post photos to this forum. My pictures are stored on Chrome Gallery which doesn't provide a link.
    Any help appreciated

    One method is to click on the Upload a File button in the bottom right hand corner, click on Choose File and select a file from your PC (if stored 'online' you will need to download first). If editing a post to add an image clicking on More Options will display the Upload File button.

    There are other ways.

      Another way (the simple one I use) if you have the images stored on your computer, is to drag and drop them. Click on the photo(s) you wish to post and just drag them into the space at the bottom of the screen where you would type in your post. There is a maximum size of file that the software on the forum will convert to acceptable limits (think it's 2 or 3mb per image). If your image file size is too big you would need to reduce them first.

      Sometimes the software won't let you post images until you have made a few more posts but don't know if that still applies. @Fat Controller will be able to tell you.

        I am not familiar with Chrome Gallery - is that cloud storage?
