I would like to add pictures of a device I placed for sale on the Marketplace. I can't seem to get them onto the post. Could someone give a step by step to a technologically challenged individual? :roll:

Just drag & drop into the message box.

Open the forum editor in your browser, then open your file explorer. Arrange them side by side. Find the picture you want, click and hold the left mouse button (or only mouse button if a Mac), then drag it over to the editor window and release the button.

Hopefully the file is not overly large; we have a limit on picture sizes, but offhand I don't remember what. If you get an error message, open the file in your picture editor and find the menu to reduce the file size.

Thanks, Tom. I did try and load them per your instructions, but the file size was too large. Trying to figure out how to reduce the file size.

In your picture editor, there should be a Resize option. If your picture is (for example) 2400 x 1200 pixels, cut it in half (1200 x 600) and see how that works.
