I am able to attach files now. How do I paste them into a post??!!

Paul, click on the link below. It will ultimatly take you to a thread where there is an explanation of how to display photos. The instructions will work with photos that are linked from remote servers/web sites or are uploaded from your hard drive or are part of your RR-L photo album. The procedure is much easier than my explanation...

Hi Paul
Where is yor picture located.
It must be located on an external server not your hard drive.
You either need a photo album here which I can not find.
Ask Joe for one.
or you must post them on a web site.
I have AOL and use the web site that is included in the package.
I see Mike is online and he is the expert.

Paul, since your "SW Freight House" photo was apparently uploaded from your hard disk drive using the Forums' "Attach a File" feature, getting it (or any other) to show in your posts will be relatively easy. Just follow the instructions provided in Tyson's thread (see the above listed link). It's the same thing I did to get your photo displayed a couple of postings ago.

John,

Mike is right. I uploaded my photo from my hard drive. I will ask Joe for a photo album.

John,

I thought I had this posting of pictures figured out. I looked at the photos in this thread & at photo I posted in the Gen Discussion thread & all I see is a X. I think I see now what you were talking about. Is that what happens when a photo is uploaded from a hard drive & not on a external web site? I will figure this out eventually. Thanks for your patience.

Paul

Paul, 99% of the photos I post on the forum are uploaded from my hard drive. That's what the "Insert a File" button is for in the message posting window (where I'm typing this right now).

Follow the instructions I wrote for Tyson (and which several others have since followed). The link to the thread is in a post above. You shouldn't have any problems at all.

There is no need for you to link to an external server or photo hosting service if you can put the photos on your own hard disk drive. Just upload the photo from there to the forum, do some simple editing of the coding afterward, and there's the photo in your post. It's all very simple.

Hi Mike and Paul
First Paul thanks for asking this question and waking me up.
I hope the photo is visible.
Thanks Mike for repeating this method.
I have been using the photo album extensively and if this works boy does that make life easier.
I know that I do not need both the link and the photo I was just testing this method out.

Thanks again Mike
I guess it is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.
I can not believe how much time I will now save in posting a picture.
Life is great.
