Trouble posting pics
« on: March 06, 2012, 05:54:34 PM »

Maybe I'm being a complete dumbhead and perhaps I'm missing something painfully obvious, but I'm having trouble posting an image directly into a post. How does one do this? (Yes, 80-some posts and only now I'm trying to figure this out!)

Nope.  It has to be uploaded to the web for you to be able to download it to a thread.

Just a heads up that many images become "something else" at TinyPic after a year or so; eventually, the filename may be re-used for another uploader, if you don't register.

Here's some more:

Didn't know Flickr had a 90-day "inactivity limit" for us cheapskates.
