How To Post an Image?

Greetings,

 

Can TWC staff please provide instructions on how to post an image to the forum?  The source, dimentions, and other data fields are confusing.  Normally, with other forms you just click on Add Files or images, the download page opens up and you can Insert images.  What goes in what field?  Thank you!

Explain How To Post Image

The Help page explains how to insert and image as follows:

 

How do I insert an image in a post?

To insert an image in a post:

  Start a new post.
  Click Insert Image.
  Choose an image source location.
  Follow the on-screen instructions

 

 

But it doesn't explain how to find the source location or what image formats (JPEG, PDF, etc) can be inserted.

You have to post to a photo site like 500pix or img., then copy the link for the source line.

Is this explained somewhere?

Re: Explain How To Post Image

what browser are you using?   for a direct photo, it should be in the toolbar that pops up as part of the reply here, it's the mountain icon after the paperclip.

 

The paper clip is for a click on link, the mountain directly copies a pic here

Mac Safari 9.1.1.

 

Yes I click on that and the "insert/edit image" window pops up which asks for: Source, Image Description and Dimensions. I can select Cancel or OK but get no further, so can't copy/paste an image.

You can only post a link to a .JPG or a .png    ..., does that help?

 You just type or paste it into the upper

Not really,

 

When I click "Upload an Image" in this forum I get things like

 

  • Source
  • Image Description
  • Dementions

What do I put in those boxes?  On other forums, I click on "Insert an Image" my Download folder automatically opens up and I can  download for example the JPEG or PNG file into the forum and download it.  On these forums, there is no simple download box when you click on the Image Insert button and because of this, I don't know what to do.

I click Upload then choose files in the center.

It then gives me the option for Format, Size Large, Medium or Small and 

position.
