      It can't be that tough. I figured it out and I haven't been computer savey since 1982.

      To post a pic, click the little icon (that looks like it use to before upgrade but black and white) in the 8th box from the left, third icon. Click "upload" then click "choose file". Choose your pic from your computer and click "open". Now click "send to server" then click "ok". You can change the size of the pic before clicking "ok", or double click on the pic before posting and you can change it's size. If you get a notice that the pic is too large, click "cancel" then open the pic in "paint"(on most computers) and resize it then start over again. Sometimes I'll have to resize a pic a few times before the forum will accept it.

      To post a pic from the web, don't click "upload", just copy and paste the image address where it says "URL" then un-check "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" and click "ok".

              I thought I did it right but the link goes to Google photos and shows all my hundreds of photos. How do I delete that link?

                Lou, use the "Upload Attachments" it will bring you to your computer. Click photos from you computer, choose which photo and it will automatically upload. Choose what size, I use Large, bad eyes you know. You are done.

                  Lou,
                  I agree as under members pics I have tried 4 times to post my Packard pics and still to no avail. I used to post pics all the time and now I just don't have any luck. Modern technology. Great when it works!

                    It took me a few tries, but I have no problem now, posting either from my own files or from the internet.
                    But I do like when the photos all show up in a format where they can be viewed by clicking the little left or right arrows.
                    So far, all I've managed is a single viewable picture at a time; where viewing that picture has to be closed out to selectively view another.
