I am getting old  :(. I have posted paintings in the encourager area, but for the life of me, I can't remember how  :'(.
I have several paintings in my gallery that I would like to post here for comments - but How?

If you got to Encourager area Click on 'New Topic' it will bring up a new screen where you add 'Subject' and 'Comments'. Then click on 'Additional Options'. then click on 'Browse' this will open a window to your computer. Select which folder your image is in and click on it. THe file name and directory will appear in the 'Attach window'.  Then click 'Post' and your image and comments will appear in the Encourager Area

Hope that helps

Cheers Bruce

Alan, if your photos are already in your gallery, there is an easier way to post them.  Go to your gallery. Open the picture you want to post. Look below and there will be a box with a BBC(I think is what it's called) Copy this.  Go back to the area you want to create a post. After you have opened the box and typed your message, just paste in that box.

please use the Gallery to add your photos and then just copy and paste the BBC embed code into the posts where you want the photo to appear - I will soon be disabling the feature where you can upload a photo while posting as the photos added this way seem to have problems enlarging when you click on them.
