Go to thread you want to put your picture... start your post... scroll down below Submit.... click on attachments and follow what it says.
Be aware there is a size maximum.

Just that simple
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

Thanks, that's always been easy here. But it's stuck in some kind of queue now.

Could be that you have been put in a Castanet "queue" for all posts as they will have to be approved first?

Kind of similar to facebook jail.
One day you will find someone who is obsessed with you.

Nope, I get instant gratification on my posts here. [icon_lol2.gif]

And after recent events down on skid row here I'm not up to bothering ferri about this yet.

I'm using a piece of crap Samsung Galaxy until I get home in April, and I've never been able to fully figure it out, so I think I'll take what I need on my SLR and use my computer to sort it all out when I'm there. That is unless i'm not banned by then. [icon_lol2.gif]

Of course, with providing that info, I haven't received some help here by then.

Oh BTW, does anybody know how to display Youtubes and jpegs here from this thing?

Thanks all, for your kind attention and thanks in advance.

I do not believe you can "delete" a post once someone else has posted below your post. You can only "edit" your post by deleting a line of text or in your case the pix attachment which will be in the form of code as part of the text.

For youtube videos, click on the "youtube" button at the top of the message part. (far right)

For jpegs, the same way you did the pix attachment.

If you mean from your phone, then no , I always use my computer as well as resizing the photo first.

With Youtube you would just copy and paste the address, same as any other website.

Thanks, I know how to make all of the top line and other oprations work from my computer at home but I'm in Mexico with my Samsung pad and under the climate poll farther up I've been challened to take a few photos and post them there.

And I managed to post a screenshot of the Progresso cruise ship schedule from my Samsung as a test above, but now it's stuck in some kind of queue where I can't take it off.

So I think I'll use my SLR and deal with the request after I get home in April.

I can think of better things to do while in Mexico than posting on Castanet forums. :biggrin:

After fifteen winters where we are, it's just like home, and people keep challenging me with wrong thinking on the forum and I just can't resist correcting them, so why won't they just stop! :biggrin:

Next year I'm gonna start bringing my laptop again. [icon_lol2.gif]

Besides, we did take a first timer friend to Uxmal and the Chocolate Museum yesterday. So if people would be nicer to me . . ..

Can't help with it getting stuck. Not sure what that means exactly or why, sorry.
