This is a tutorial on how to add photos to your post.

1. you need to have the full editor open to add a photo. If you start a new topic, the full editor opens automatically.

To start a new topic:

Starting a new topic will give you the full editor window, which looks like this:

The arrow points to the "choose files" button which allows you to browse through your photos. When starting a new topic, you must add a title. The forum will prompt you, if you forget.

To reply to a post and add a photo:

When replying to a post, you get a condensed version of the editor, This saves time and space. If you want to add a photo, or some special bits, you will have to switch to the full editor by clicking on "More Reply Options", which will bring you back to the full editor:

Now, from the full editor, click on choose files. A window will pop up, allowing you to go through your picture files. Double click on the one you want, and it will show at the bottom of the window:

In this last photo, you can see 4 of the photos I am using in this tutorial. So now they are on your editing window. You can chose to put them together, or space words between them, as I did here in this tutorial. When you are ready to add your photo, put your cursor where you want it and click on "Add to Post".

I will say a few words here, and now add my photo of my excellent frisbee dog:

Note: You can attach all your pictures, and then write your post adding them in where you want. Or choose your photos, adding them as you go.
