How do I add a picture from my album to a post? I remember doing it a couple of times but I don't remember how.

Hi,

When you go to the Gallery tab, you should see an option that says 'Create New Album'. That will take you to a page where you can set the title of the album, description and the privacy settings for it. Once the album has been created you should see a green link that says 'upload pictures'.

Let me know if you need clearer instructions and I'll try to make up some screenshots to help you out.

The above was Liz's question. You did not answer the question Sheena (@Artadmin) you just told her how to create and load an album which she already knows how to do. What she wants to know and do is when posting to a forum to add a picture from the album to a thread she is posting too. I've been watching this correspondence because I have the same issue.

Sorry this kind of thing is frustrating to me because it happens so many times everywhere. You call for support and the person helping does not really listen to the problem and just assumes you are asking something else. It drives me crazy!

If I'm understanding this right, ie asking how to post a pic from your album to a thread, just click on the picture in you album that you want to post and a BB code (image code) will come up abouve the picture. Just right click on that and copy and paste it over to the thread you're sending. I tried it and it works fine. Hope this helps.

Jim.

Thanks for the help, Jim. I vaguely remember doing this a long time ago but forgot about it. Now both Liz and I know again.

Now the question is which is the preferred and why? The picture link shows up in the editor so you can immediately see the image and can arrange your text or other photos around it. With the BB you don't see it until you either preview your post or post it. Thanks for bringing this up.

You somehow erased one of these brackets. [
