Has something happened to the method for posting photos?

It seems that only photos on an external hosting site, eg, Photobucket, can be uploaded. Is that correct?

Is the ability to post from my own computer not available anymore?

Oops forgot to say use the submit photo tab button above the URL box that way you can use your photos from your puter.

That doesn't tell me much Dunc.

When I select "Post Image or File", I only get the option to upload from a URL, "Embed a Web Hosted Image", not one from my computer.

Am I misinterpreting something?

Just saw your followup Dunc.

I clicked on that, it responded by turning grey, but nothing else happened.

I'll try later.

If you click on "Insert Images & Files" below, then "open photos or files" it should take you directly to where you have your photos stored. Follow the prompts from there.

OK, the link seems to require a double click.

Tricky.

All good now.

GB, You would be using IE is that correct. I think I know where the double click problem may be if you are using IE and will look at this today.

First click on "Insert Images & Files".
Next click on "Add photos & Files",
Select the file you wish to upload etc etc etc.

How did that go?

I am off to bed but will drop back tomorrow to see how you go.

It just takes practice. But I must admit to being in, around, over and under computers since 1970. A slight edge on some people.
