Test of uploading a photo directly from my computer without a 'middleman'.

Okay...that didn't work as I thought it would. I attempted to click and drag a photo (jpg) from my desktop into the body of the Braille Scale Discussion Group text box. That didn't work. 
Then I tried to add the photo using the ATTACHMENT feature available when you are posting a new topic...that didn't work either. So can someone please tell me what I should be doing, Thanks.

Hello Brian
When you are sending a reply there is a 'Full Editor &  Preview' button just below the text box.  . Click on it and you will be able to see an 'Attachments' box.  Click 'Add Files' and you can add files from your computer (ideally pre-formatted to 800 pixels widebefore you start to play).  Having double-clicked the picture(s) you want they appear n a list.  When the cursor is in the position in the text you want a specific picture to appear, click on the 'Place Inline' button for the picture and in it goes.

Here's one I prepared earlier...

Test #3 and again a failure. Dan, I see no PLACE INLINE button to click on. Just PREVIEW, SUBMIT or DELETE. Very frustrating.

Brian,
It should look like this once you've uploaded the picture ...
20180417_123547.jpg I've just tried this using either of the three reply options and the same Add Files option came up and after uploading the pic they all looked like this at the bottom, the Place inline is the  important step, so I hope you can get it to look like this?
Sorry for crappy pic but it was quicker to take a photo than to screen shot it ... no I'm not very tech savvy.

Photo Test #4
Soviet Studebaker Katjuscha.jpg I think it may have worked this time. Photo of a 1/87 scale Katjuscha on a Studebaker should be visible. Thank you for all your help fella's.
