How to post pictures.

Unread post by La Jardinier »

How do I post pictures (dank memes) that I have downloaded onto my MacBook Air.
I think I knew how to do it once but now my brain's memory is full and has started to delete shit.

A photo you have available on a device can be included in a post by going to the bottom of the post's text and chosing "Attachments" then "Add files." A window pops up offering a variety of choices: choose "Downloads" which should present (on my Android tablet, at least) your photos. Tap the photo you want, then tap "Place inline" and Bob's your uncle. Hope you get a better photo than this one:

What do you mean by "going to the bottom of the post's text?"

Here's a post...

Blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah-blah...

...and down below it you see the choices "Options" and "Attachments" .. click the "attachments"... and then you see the "Add files"...

And clicking that shows "choose an action" and I select "downloads" which takes me to all my on-board photos (on, as it happens, my tablet) from which I choose the one I want.. which appears in the post after I next chose "Place Inline".. and that's it...

The "Chose an Action" after clicking "Add files" appears thusly. I was afraid if I tried to pack too much onto the previous post, everything might go to shit... :)
