Yeah, I know. I really need to set aside some time to redo all of the support write-ups for photos.

The 'upload attachment' tab can be found below the posting window and 'submit' button and next to the 'options' tab. Click on it, click on the 'Choose File' button and select the photo you want. Typing in a 'File Comment' gives the photo a caption. After upload you have the option to place attachments "inline" wherever you want them to appear in your post, otherwise by default they will appear where you left your cursor in the posting window and will line up in the order uploaded. File size is restricted to 2MB or less and max 12 photos/attachments can be added to a single post.

Several people have had issues 'hotlinking' photos from Google. The issue is usually related to permissions. Just make sure that the "Share Options" of the album is "Anyone who has a link" and "Does not require sign-in". From what I've heard It doesn't look like google photos lets you choose sharing permission for individual photos, only entire albums. Once you've copied the true URL path of the Google image, insert it using the 'rimg' BBCode button just above the posting window.

Reviving an old thread that may have some new answers. I have a few TRs to post, but all of my photos are much larger than the 2MB limit. What's the best way to upload these so that they are still engrained in the TR as folks read along? Does Flickr still work well? Other suggestions?

I generally just open the pics I have with paint and use the resize feature until I get the pic under the limit.

Thanks, rlown. There are also some free online options out there that accomplish basically the same: https://www.google.com/#q=free+photo+file+size+reducer
