How Do I Post Images In The Discussions?

Posted by: Ward Cameron on 05/28/2013 - 7:39 PM

I've tried to reply to some posts and add an image but I can't figure out how to do it. Can somebody help a newbie? It seems obvious when you start a discussion as you have the select Image box available but when I reply I don't see it.

If you want to add one of your already uploaded images to a discussion, here we go:

Here's how you add your images to any discussion:
1. Go to your Artist page, and then to Galleries and then to the image you want to include in your thread.
2. In the lower right hand corner of your image, that shows how the art can be ordered, framed,canvas,etc, in the bottom is a box, just under the color pallette, click on that box.
3. With the box now highlighted, do a "CTL C"
4. Return to the discussion thread that you want to add the image to and do a "paste" or a "CTL V"
a href='' size='20'>Art Prints

5. You're almost there! The image will show up after you hit "submit"
6. Extra credit!!! You can change the size of your image by changing the 2 numbers after the "=" sign, width & height, but do so proportionally so you don't distort the image.

What is a CTL V Rich?. Pardon my ignorance but I would like to know. I am not very computer-wise.

Hi Val.....Ctl means Control, but appears on your keyboards bottom row left as


I refuse to reiterate that this instruction, "help" topic should appear here within 'need Help" , as well as via the link off FAA, so don't expect me to say so, lol....

Val, if you happen to have a Mac computer do not use CTL C and CTL V. Instead it is Command C and Command V. This can be confusing as a Mac has both Control and Command keys.

yes, this is how to insert an image link from an already uploaded picture, from
your portfolio or anyone else's.

however, there are times when a picture would illustrate a point (better than a
thousand words) but, if it is just a jpeg on my hard drive, how can i add it here?

when someone initiates a discussion thread, they can upload a jpeg into the
opening post - i have done it - but why is it allowed only for the OP and not
any of the responding posts?

or can it be done and i just have not yet figured out how to do it?
