Jeff, if you typing a reply or a blog, go to the "Insert image" button at the bottom of the dialoge box.

2. That opens a dialogue box that gives you two options to upload a photo a) Web hosted photo or b) Upload photo.

3. select the "Upload Photo" option by selecting 'Browse' under that heading.

4. That should take you to the next dialogue box which is basically the same as a "Windows explorer" page. You just click on the "look in" dropdown menu at the top of the page and select the appropriate folder that you keep your pictures in ie: 'My Pictures".

5. This will take you to the folder with your photos in it. If it is in file view and you want to see the photos click on the tab to the very right of the folder address (It's called "file view" when you hover the curser over it ). Left click and select Thumbnail from the drop down list. The photos will now appear as thumbs for you.

6. To select the appropriate photo, double click it and it will take you right back to the original Photo select box. This time the photo address will be in the top line. Click on the line below and type the photo description you want and then click the "LOAD" button.

7. The photo will now appear on your blog or reply.

You can see the results by clicking "Preview" from the buttons below as well. This allows you to have a practice and then just cancel the answer or blog rather than submit.

If the photo is 2 meg or so it will take a little while to load. The smaller the file size, the quicker it will upload.

Hope that was clear enough.

Give it a go.

Cheers Mick

Mick,

That was good, but I cannot tell the picture where to go in my blog. I want to add a picture to a certain section, but it went to the top of the page.

Thanks Mick and thanks Mr C.

Willie.

Hey Wllie,
I believe the picture is inserted where your cursor was before you hit the insert image tab.

Hey there Mike,

Jon is right. In your blog, put the curser at the spot you want the photo to be embedded and go through the routine. It's important not to "re enter" the blog for want of a better description, until the photo is loaded.

If it stuffs up, you can simply cut and paste the code in the blog. Just make sure you highlight all the text the relate to the photo you just uploaded, including the square brakets, "cut" it and then put the curser where you want the photo and right mouse click and "Paste". Too easy. Mate it's just a bit of practise and after some of your adventures, I'll be looking forward to reading your blogs.

Cheers Mick.

Hi Jeff

Technically speaking you are UPLOADING an image to a psot or a blog.

If you want to DOWNLOAD, as you originally stated, if you put the cursor on the displayed image, right mouse click, and "save picture as" you can then save it to a folder in "My Pictures".
