Right, been stumped for a while and have seen a few questions in other posts.

Could someone advise in simple terms how to do this please.

Thanks

Hi mate
Set up an account with these people. No cost at all

https://imgur.com/

A Once done and logged in at the top right there will be your name. Left click that and a drop down appears. Left click IMAGES.

B Then top right-ish is a green tab that says ADD IMAGES. Left Click that and a big box appears with a picture of a Giraffe. Left click the box that says BROWSE.

C This should then bring up a box from your own computer where you save images and such like. Select the image by left clicking on it and click OPEN

D The image will then appear on the IMGUR page after it has uploaded onto it. Left click it and it will appear larger with posting options to the right off the screen. Select a Thumbnail size depending on the size of your original image (Usually Medium works OK) and then click BB CODE and COPY

E Then pop back into your post here and right click. The PASTE option pops up and Left click s that and you should have posted it OK as below an image of The Who

You may have to mess around with the size of image thing but simply delete the previous link and then do the process again selecting a different size until it works best on here.

Good luck mate

Thanks so much and very prompt.  Will have a fiddle, so to speak, and no doubt bombard the forum.

Maybe worth pinning for reference.

That's helpful Martin. One question mate, will it only work from PC. I seem to do everything on a phone rather than PC/laptop. Appreciate you are not the paid forum IT guru but not sure who to ask  :D

Hi Mark. Not sure I'm afraid. I am so Tech Incapable myself I only have a mobile phone that is just a phone. No internet, photo taking function or anything. I use a 'sit down' computer at home like most folk do at work if you know what I mean. Sorry fella.

Martin, thank you for the "users manual", I've explained it so many times before here that I hadn't the desire of doing it once more. The Laird is right about the thread.
