    Posting a photo or video instead of just the link

    What is the proper way to bring the photo or video directly into the post instead of just the link?

    For video use tags.

    For photos, you can either upload them from a file, or find a link to an image and use [IMG][/IMG] tags.

    I use the "short cut" (toolbar?) symbols - the two appearing before the quotation short cut are for photo and video respectively. When I use the video short cut (from my iPad) it changes the "www." to an "m." in the video's URL which I must (manually) correct for it to appear properly.

    Picture (image) example:

    tag? Those are in the tool bar at top, yes? Some stock photos from my computer display the wrong file extension jpg/gif, etc
    Sorry for my ignorance, Thanks for the reply.
