    I'm new here, is there a prohibition against newbies posting a picture?

    Last night I tried to add a graphic to a post. It was just a government BLS chart about unemployment.
    But when I clicked the insert image button, the picture took over the browser screen and just froze.
    There were no options for me to chose. It just sat there.
    So I backed out of that screen and tried the "basic uploader" still no luck.

    Is there some step, that I've missed?

    Hi there Bill James and welcome to DP

    It's a good idea to introduce yourself to the forum https://www.debatepolitics.com/come-in-and-say-hi/

    The image you are trying to insert into a post must either be available on an internet server (hot-linking), or you must upload it to your DP Profile "Album".

    All images must be one of the following formats .gif / .jpg / .jpeg / .png

    Try manually putting the image address between the BB Code image brackets -- [img]address here[/img]

    #1) Make sure you’ve copied the url for the image you want to post to your clipboard.
    #2) click the “insert image” icon
    #3) click the “from url” tab
    #4) paste the url you copied into the empty url filed
    #5) unclick the “retrieve remote file and reference locally” box
    #6) click “ok”


    To double check youself, click the “go advanced” button to see preview.

    Party On!!!
