How can I put a picture in the body of my forum post?

You upload the picture somewhere on the web - I use Facebook and Snapfish - then you can just copy (Ctrl-C) an paste (Ctrl-V) the picture into the body of the post.

This works for me in IE9 and Chrome. I don't know about Firefox, I don't use it.

Worked great! I switched to IE from Firefox so that was possibly the problem. I'm not too technologically inclined. Thanks!

I doubt that it had anything to do with Firefox. Web work is what I do all day and Firefox is my browser of choice.

I used IE for years and never had a problem.  I was talked into using Foxfire and now I can post pictures once in awhile but normally it just won't take.

It drives me crazy but I had to keep changing back and forth.  If I really WANT to post a picture, I sign out of PBS while on Foxfire, bring up IE and sign back on and then can post the picture. 

UGGGGGGGGGG

I've been using Firefox for years and until last summer had no issues posting pics to the forums.  Then something changed, no idea what, and I haven't been able to post pics to the forum since.

I open two windows, one on PBS and the other on the photo I want to post and then just drag and drop the photo into PBS.  I use Firefox.   I've never been able to get the copy and paste to work for me on FF.

Thomas - it may just be a glitch between PBS and FF, not that FF in general is a problem. Usually PBS works better with FF since it is their browser of choice.

Someone who uses FF and has the problem might want to send Feedback in on it so they can take a look at it.

This is the method I use as well, and I'm using Firefox.  Drag and drop is soooo simple!

Drag and drop has always worked for me in Firefox.

I use FF and I copy and paste regularly -- no problems at all. But I'm now eager to try the drag and drop method.

Just seeing if this drag and drop works.  Sure seems like a lot more trouble than copy and paste
