Hello!

Any idea how to add a photo to a forum post from a Mac computer? I've already dragged the pics I want to my desktop and sized them down, and they appear correctly when I drag them to the text window of my post, but when I hit "submit reply" to post it to the forum, the only thing that appears is my text. No photos. Help! :)

Hi Francesca!

All photos need to be hosted somewhere on the web (photobucket, facebook, snapfish), etc.  Depending on your browser, some can copy and paste from their hosting site and others can "drag and drop".

You can post your Avi pic from your computer memory, but the comment boxes must be posted from an online source.

Mary gives great directions, IIRC she taught me how!

I'm on a Mac, and it works the same as it did on a PC.  Drag from a website into the "post a reply" box.

I've never been able to post photos here using Firefox but if I use IE, it's as easy as copy/paste.
