Time for a new thread!  Previous thread here.

To display a photo in your post:

1. Resize your photo so that it is no wider than 470 pixels.

2. If you are unable to resize it yourself, you may be able to do that in the next step.

3. Upload the photo to a photo hosting site, eg Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa.

A. To resize using Photobucket, before you upload click on (more options), located under the Upload button. This opens a pop-up, choose an upload size - Medium, Small or Tiny will reduce your photo for this purpose.

B. After you have uploaded your photo, you can copy the link for the photo. There will be four links to choose from, either below or next to the photo.

C. The simplest method is to copy the "IMG Code". However if you copy the "Direct Link" this will also work.

A. In Flickr you can select the size after uploading.  Click on your photo. Click on "All Sizes" above the photo.

B. You now have a choice of "Available Sizes". These depend on the original photo size. Choose one that is smaller than 470 x ###. Click on it and it will open your photo in a smaller size.

C. Below your photo is the link / URL to use. Copy this.

4. Click in the editing area of your EB post:

a- If you have used a Photobucket IMG Code, simply paste it here and your image will display once you submit the post.

b- If you have copied the "Direct Link" or a Flickr link, click on this button . It will open a pop-up and you can paste your photo link here.

c- Within your post, it will look something like this:

Happy testing!
