This page is under construction, updates soon with picture posting help.
First step you must login,
begin a new post,
click down into the message area then
scroll down the screen and click on "insert object"
left screen click "temporary files"
This window opens up your pc, find your pic there and double click on it
[note- it must be formatted in jpeg and have no spacing in the code]
Click the "upload" button right next to the browse button.
wait a little & give it a chance to load,
your pic should eventually come up in the right screen
[note- if it does not you have to start over with a smaller pic,
the file size is too big]
next click on "insert link" button.
this will bring you back to the "post-message" screen and there will be a long code# ending in .JPG
scroll down the screen and click "preview"
[note- always preview, if your pic does not come up on the preview screen it didn't work. do not let a word or letter touch the picture address, there must be a break between them or it will not work]
Tips- crop your picture before scanning, focus on the subject, cut out as much background, unless of course it's that kind of photo. Small pics load faster, high resolution pics take longer and can blow the screen out sideways. Scan pics at a low dpi, 200? put your text & descriptions at the top of the message screen above the photo JPG link so people can read what's coming up while it downloads.
If you post a web-site, for example www.uccg.org readers have to copy/paste, or type in the address. If you prefix your site with http:// (exactly as it appears in your browser address box) it will come up as a hyperlink, just click & go-http://www.uccg.org
All pics using this method are temporary and last only a couple weeks. Good luck!
