    There are a lot of ways to get your pictures onto BYC, here are a few:
    1. On your computer (for example from your desktop or Windows Explorer) "copy" the image file, then in the editor "paste" the file.
    2. If you have an image in your computer's "clipboard" you can just paste or CTRL-V it into a post
    3. Or you can drag and drop an image from your computer into the editor
    4. Or, you can click "Upload a File"

    Here's a great video on some cool ways to insert pics:



    (oh, and you can also embed videos too! :) )

    When I try to post pics it says "error occurred please post a reply with less than 20 images" when the post I'm trying to put on only has 14 images??

    I think the file sizes combined may be a bit much for the system to handle. Can you try and divide the images up over 2 or more posts and see if that helps?
