    This thread will hopefully show how to use this feature.

    There are three options.
    1. Full Image
    2. Thumbnail
    3. Attachment
    This is what they look like:

    I wish there was an edit option to change the photo when I forget to choose full or thumbnail & I get the blue box file link.:D

    If I delete the file, it stays embedded in the OP invisible until I am done editing and is back in the blue box again. Then if I try to upload a new photo to an existing box, the file is always the blue tab attached file folder. I believe it tells me "uploads are not available" and I can only choose a photo from my albums..

    I deleted the original photo but it came back as "Attached files"
    I tried to upload a different photo and was told UPLOADS NOT AVAILABLE.
    So my original question should have been.. How do you correct the format that was posted if you made an error on your post with the desired photo embedding?:pop
