    Help for a few friends

    I have tried to no avail to help a couple of friends use forum features.

    One is having problems postings images from insert image. This poster keeps getting an error message,
    Both are having problems posting incognito.

    I have walked both through the steps that work for me, and nothing works for them.

    What's the secret? All help welcome.

    A big TIA!

    Well, I found that I had to upload the picture or other image onto my own "save picture" computer file, and sometimes name it myself.

    Then I select the option "from your computer" and it usually works.

    One problem is sizing though. Your picture can only be a certain "size" to fit in the "5000 space" limit.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Are they uploading the file from the computer or linking a URL?
    And there's no need to worry since everything is mostly nothing;
    or so I'm told by an angel in a white lab coat

    Is it from URL? Sometimes it'll tell you it's invalid or too big.

    We've gone over that. I've told the one having problems posting images to uncheck the box. They still can't post images. They get an error message.
    I dunno.

    For me, when I get that problem, I always download the image. And if that doesn't work, I'll always use resize image online. Problem flies away.

    Yeah, downloading to local machine seems to work best.

    Hi C. Adverse.
    I've tried to have them select images from where I upload most of mine; already sized down.
    I've walked them through the process, and to no avail, they get an error message.
