Using the photo upload attachment

Post by Niner » Sun Aug 22, 2010 3:55 pm

Just in case adding photos by way of the attachment feature is something that doesn't seem obvious, here are a few photos that may help to explain.

Please keep in mind gigantic photos won't attach and photos other than jpgs won't attach. You can use Irfanview which is a free download or whatever software you have on your computer to resize photos to a size that is usable. Photos work best in the 800 to 1200 pixel width range.
