Forum Guide - how to add images to your posts

The easiest way to add an image to your post is to use the ATTACHMENTS field.
Click on the ADD FILE button, browse for your image and click OK: this action attaches the image as a paperclip to your post.
To have the image appear in the text of your post, click on the INSERT button. You may need to move the new image (with the BBCode, i.e. the words in square brackets) to a more suitable position in the post.
IMPORTANT: make sure the file extension is in lower case, e.g., '.jpg' and not '.JPG'. Overwrite this if necessary. If using any screen capture software the file extensions may automatically be saved as capitals!
Image uploads are limited to 1MB maximum file size. Maximum image size is 800x800 pixels.
(You can use the Image Link BBCode but this will require you to have previously uploaded your image to a file share/your own website (url). The procedure is very similar to the Attachments process).
