Here is a picture of Julia's rocking chair. Now the question is how to post after this?

Where is this writing? Seems that it is ahead of the picture. Uhm, seems I do not know how to post writing after the picture. I thought I had done that in the past. One more try. Still not. Guess I will learn from the replies also.

after placing your photos in your post, go to ADVANCED.
place your cursor where you want your photo, then click
the PAPERCLIP and choose your photo. this will place the
chosen photo in that spot. (where you had your cursor).

Nice rocker George, I like that.

And I have pointed it out a dozen times in the last few months. Maybe we need a new 'sticky' for photos, orientation, placement, etc.

Posting photos in WWT

Here are some instructional links:
https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f16/...t-photos-1120/




Do not use an off site photo storing site. Photobucket has lost many photos on this site because it now requires payment to keep them.


My smart phone stores the photos on the cloud and I download those to my PC. Then I open "downloads" to find them and attach each one separately. WAIT for them to UPLOAD! The "Manage Attachments" window must be full screen to show the UPLOAD button or you will not be able to see it.
I only use my PC, not my smart phone, but I know the process is slightly different.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Reads like a great idea to me as obviously I also did not know how to make that work.

See the fine line box around the photos?

I think that means you can't get inside there to add text, but I'm not certain......?



I can do it "after the fact" ....




I use mouse right click, copy image, then control "V" paste for each photo, then added the text. But that's after the photos were already posted, not the right way.


You can always use "edit" and put in text after it's posted.

Easiest way is to hit Go Advanced, then the paper clip, browse to your photos, upload them, then put your cursor where you want a photo and choose that photo from the dropdown beside the paper clip. Takes but seconds and works without a hitch every time.

David

PS - it depends on your browser, settings, and operating system but I don't have to make the window full screen to see the upload button

I thought that I would be able to make it work using Advanced as it was available in past posts but when I started the post yesterday I didn't have the advanced option. I'll try it again and see what happens. Ah Ha! It's there now but this is for reply not for starting a post?????

Posting Text

it is simple = type your post as you want others to see it.
then, place your photos where you want them, as described above.

This is how I post text "under" the photo, as described above.
also - how to put text "inside" the photo with a simple art program.

always "Preview Post" before you hit the "Submit Reply" to check
your spelling, grammar and photo orientation.

When you start a new thread you're already in Advanced, so just go to the Paper Clip and browse to your photos.
