    I was looking for a tutorial somewhere on the site but didn't find any. I thought there was an FAQ about it somewhere...

    If you upload your images to http://www.trainboard.com/railimages/ you can simple right click on the pic in your album there...copy it...and paste it into your post ;-)

    If your images are hosted somewhere else...sometimes its best to just post the url of the image. Some image hosting sites dont allow 'hotlinking' of photos :-(

    In the reply box, there is a row of buttons above the text area. The one that looks like a photo will highlight as "Insert Image" if you run the cursor over it. Click on this and it gives you the option of either selecting a picture by url (as from RailImages) or directly from your computer. Select the picture/insert the url and click on "OK" and all should be well. Please give it a try, maybe just as a reply to this, and raise a flag if you have any further questions.

    hmmmm...interesting :)

    If you 'insert image" from your computer...doesnt it it go into your images folder on TB first ?

    I have noticed that that folder holds a less images then RailImages ;-)

    I think my TB albums folder is filled up...lol

    I don't think it does, George, but my experience has been that it shows as a link in the post which clicks over to the photo, rather than as a picture within the post.

    George-

    No. When you attach or insert from an outside source, it does not go to TrainBoard Albums, or RailImages. If you wish to bring a photo in from either of those two options, first you must upload directly to them.

    Attachments are managed separately in your "Settings" area.

    The software can be touchy. Sometimes when you feed it a big portion, it hiccups.

    If you have a question, just post it here in the Support forum. Many times you won't even need to wait for a Staff member, as a one of the gang will simply pop in and explain how they did it.
