    Great idea. [​IMG]. A lot of people were still confused about how post pictures now.

    You can also copy / paste if your pics are say in your FB album.

    Just go there and right click the pic and choose "Copy Image"

    [​IMG]


    Come back here to the Reply editor and hit the Ctrl and V keys on your keyboard (at the same time)


    And your pic is here!

    I was wondering if you could load an exel file? I did a coop lay-out on how I proposed to change an horse stall to a chicken coop but I couldn't share for any feedback.

    The new system does support the loading of other file types, but for now we're limiting file uploads outside of images to GFMs and PPMs.

    How do we get pics from our old uploads? I can't find them.

    I am so happy....I posted an auction ad with an embedded picture... I'm going to have to reduce size of photos for the limit on space. but I feel Like I landed on the moon[​IMG]
    I did however forget to list photos below so no photo at the listing [​IMG]but will do it with another ad. So thanks for the helpful tutorial! and the encouragement .....

    You have been most patient with all my pleas for help.... Sorry if I've been a little on the sad side in all this transition but I promise that I tested and explored and now have posted and will gladly help others who need help....Now, I'm not going to post any more ads tonight because I'm afraid this computer is going to overheat...LOL, I did it with only 5 windows open.....and all my helpers here all of you Have a blessed evening.
