Including pictures within the text area of a post

Post by Rag Thumb »

How do I get photos to appear within the body of text rather than as attachments. I see many others accomplishing this but I haven't come upon the secret to making it work for me.

When you're making a post - there's the area at the bottom where you choose a file to attach.
Browse to your file.
Hit Add to upload the file.
Once the file is uploaded, right next to the file name, there is a button labeled "Place Inline".
Put your cursor in the text box where you want the picture inserted, then click that button.

Hope this helps.

1. Click "choose file", which is under the text area of the post. . Make sure your photo is in jpeg format and at least 840 pixels in length. I make mine at least 1000 pixels on the longest side.

2. After choosing your photo, make sure you click "add file", which will be to the right. I'll be uploaded.

3. You'll see a Dropbox to add each photo in line, where you want it. Just put the cursor where you want your photo to appear, choose the photo from the drop down box, and click "add inline".
