How To Post A Picture / Gif?

Hi Everyone.

 

I feel very bad for asking this dumb question, but....

Can anybody help me understand how to "Upload" a picture - in a PM?

I saw the excellent example pictures Jerry put on the first post of this Topic, and  the 1st step says to

1. Use the FULL VERSION and select "More Reply Options"

 

But where we write a Message in a PM there is no "MORE REPLY OPTIONS"?

Or at least I do not see it?

So maybe there is another method for "Uploading" pictures in Personal/Private Messages(PM)?

 

:help:

How about - using the FULL VERSION - look for "use full editor" lower right:

And then look for upload:

Hi Jerry,

 

Thanks for the pictures.

However I had written that I had seen your good pictures on this Post already and these were helpful, but for Posts only.

For a PM there is no "MORE REPLY OPTIONS'  button?

Is it maybe because I do not have permission yet?

On the right side of the "post" button you should see "Use Full Editor" button. Click on that and you come to the place to upload a picture.

That was in the PM section. But again it is the FULL VERSION and not the mobile one.

Thank You Jerry & Sister Vernalee,

 

When I press 'Use Full Editor"

the next screen looks on the bottom like this:

 

[sEND MESSAGE]  [PREVIEW MESSAGE] or Cancel

 

But there is no button that says "Upload"

and the good picture Jerry showed, the 2nd Picture, of the screen

"COMPOSE REPLY"

I can get to this screen but there is nothing about

"ATTACH FILES"

there is only what I put above in big letters

 

So I have tried

"Use Full Editor" and just the buttons I listed above show

 

I have tried

"Compose New Letter"

and this is all it says,

[sEND MESSAGE]  [PREVIEW MESSAGE] [ SAVE(Send Later) ] or Cancel

 

This is on my PC, and not on a phone.

So I am confused :( 

But thank you both for trying to help me!  :)

:wub: sorry it isn't working for you. I have noticed some don't always have all the same features.

Some talk about "blocking" but I don't have that. Oh we'll, we will have to get with our site guy and have him look into it.

EDIT: hey, what operating system are you using. I notice apple shows differently for some reason. Even full version on an iPad is different. I just checked the PM part on an iPad and it is there - like picture above.

I thought I would add some screen shots for the mobile version.

 

We can't add attachments using the mobile version - SO, you have to switch to the FULL VERSION. I recommend you go to the post you want to comment in FIRST and then switch. Right below the post button is the FULL VERSION button - see here ->

Now that you have switched look at the bottom right of the comment area:

Once you select the MORE REPLY OPTIONS you should see the chose file button:

As with the desktop version - After you chose your file you have to wait for it to upload. You should see the spinning arrow. Once uploaded - THEN you can click ADD TO POST.

This thread is nearly a year old and JWTalk has been upgraded since then, yes? There is no  "more reply options" button.  I'm using samsung tab4.

Now you just click on the paper clip or words "click to choose files" and add the pictures that way.

Whenever I do that I always get a message saying that I am only allowed 0.98MB. I tried to use programs online to resize it but couldn't follow it. Is there anyway that I can resize it with the Editor?

MsPaint will let you realize really easily.

So if the picture is  say 1200x2200 pixels, or, 2.96 MB, I always get hung up on what size to choose that will fit the post.

Is there a pixel limit , or way to know what  to resize it to?

Thank you..

To go from 3mb to 1mb you need a change to 33% or 1/3 size.
