Hi folks :cool:

Adding photos to posts is something that people often find difficult :z6

Let's make better use of the Photo Gallery and keep things simple!

You will notice that there is now a link above the text box when you are making a new post or reply "Add image to post and upload to gallery" ......... Please try this for adding photos to your posts, it is a great system and even resizes them! :cool:

When you click on it, a pop up appears:

1 - Give your photo a title.
2 -  Select a category ( select "Main Gallery" as the category )
3 - Give your photo a description ( the description will only be displayed under your photo in the gallery )
4 - Click on "Choose file" to find your photo on your PC, highlight the photo file and then click on the "Open" button.
5 - Now simply click on "Add picture", your photo will upload to the gallery and will then insert a link in your post that will make the photo display in your post :cool:

Treat the link as a paragraph and simply press return if you want a space between your photo and your text :wink

Please don't post photos of dead fish ....... this has become a sort of unspoken rule by forum members over the years :z16

Best wishes
Mike

There is another way to do this, if anybody gets stuck  :z12

Go to the Gallery first and use the 'Add Picture' link to upload your photo.
Once your photo is uploaded, copy the 'BB Code' under your photo and then simply paste the BB Code in your post  :z16

Best wishes
Mike

That is a great photo of a trout in the water with a rod. That is the way brownies should be.
Well worth logging on just to see the photos.

When I look at the photo of the trout I see a fish that is slim and just the way they used to look before others started to want big stockies. Have a couple of cane rods and a 9 ft. greenheart trout rod. They are heavier than modern rods but the greenheart action is easier on the eye and still catches fish.

Uploading photos from a mobile seems to work well now  :z16

Like the photos. One of the reasons I like this forum is the superb photos. Many I feel I am standing beside the cameral.
Looking at the gent bent down netting a fish. Just wish I could bend like that.
