Ok lets see if I can get this to work. I'm typing text and will place an image and then place text under it.
This is a cabinet that I built for a customer. See I'm typing under the picture. It's kinda hard because when you place a picture you have to click off of the message then place the cursor at the bottom right of the picture and click to get it to blinking. Then you hit enter a couple of times to move it down and start typing.
I don't get it still. How did you load your picture in your post, and then type below it? So you uploaded it to photobucket. The picture is in your post. I'm gonna try to upload one to my gallery, and use it for the URL address.
What you need to do is to load the pictures directly from your own computer to the site, rather than link to Photobucket or another off-site location. (If that location ever goes down or goes away, your pictures also go away, but if they are loaded here, they will always stay in the post).
Go to "Manage Attachments", browse your computer for the picture you want to upload, upload the picture.
Then come back into the composing screen, click on the paperclip icon at the top, and insert the picture(s). You'll get a line that reads ATTACH]962[/ATTACH with brackets at the ends. Then you can type before the picture,
This was written by a former member of Sawmill Creek, then changed for the Family Woodworking family, but the basics work here too.
As I said earlier, if you are trying to post pictures from an off-site storage, you usually have to click on a URL to get to them, and the pictures will disappear if and when that site goes down or if you decide to remove the pictures from Photobucket. Using this method, the pictures will ALWAYS be here (but they do use bandwidth).
Also, remember that you can always preview your post and see how it looks and reads before you click the "submit reply" button.
(By the way, I didn't make that particular pen in the picture above. I received it in a pen swap on another site.)
