  • How To Upload Images To Your Post

    Before uploading any images to your posts it would be a good idea to resize them to no bigger than 1024 pixels on the longest side. Try to keep the file size to between 200 - 300 Kb. There are quite a few resizing programs around. One of the better ones is faststone, and I've included a tutorial on how to resize your images. Just remember to make the longest side 1024 pixels and adjust quality to achieve a file size of between 200Kb and 300Kb, this will give us the best chance of consistent results.

    You can also resize your images from within your post processing program. Photoshop has a save for web function, and I'm guessing Lightroom does as well.


    Once you have resized your image/s you are now ready to upload it into your post.
    Click on the Upload Attachments icon in the top right of the toolbar. Refer Fig- 1.

    MAKE SURE THE CURSOR IS PLACED WHERE YOU WANT THE TOP LEFT CORNER OF YOUR IMAGE TO APPEAR.

    Select your image/s and either double click the image/s, or click on the Open button.

    The images will be uploaded to your post (you will not see it yet) and several options will appear in the box below your post. Select large and your image will be resized so as to be easily seen. Refer Fig-4.
