To insert an image in your post:
NOTE: If the file is larger than 1Mb AND you failed to select one of the "Resize" options you will see a warning dialogue:
Once the upload is complete the dialogue will disappear and you will see a link in the form:
<nabble_img src="myphoto.jpg" border="0" class="center"/>inserted in the message where the image will appear when posted.
Some people have said they find it difficult to get the image to go they want it. The following may help you understand how to position an image.
This follows the standard HTML rules. (HTML is the computer language used to build web pages.)
Photos uploaded direct from a modern camera will exceed the 1Mb file size limit for images and after a long wait you'll get the error message shown above.
Of the three sizes offered in the Insert Image dialogue, the largest (750px) maybe too small for your purpose. However, it is often ideal for those forums that display with a width limited to around 960px regardless of window size. On such sites, this is the best option to use, and should be used in conjunction with the "Float: Center" option (as described in POSITIONING IMAGES above).
The smaller sizes (250px and 500px) are best suited for images to be floated left or right.
Images wider than the width available in your window (or the limit imposed by the site in which the forum is embedded) may be truncated and only show the left hand part, or may need extensive use of the browser's scrollbars, so it is often best to choose one of the three sizes on the dialogue, unless the file you are uploading, or linking to, is already below the 1Mb limit.
If the resize options are unacceptable to you, you will need to resize your file yourself using your own software. before attempting an upload again.
If you wish those reading your post to have a copy available for best print quality then use the file upload facility (on the "MOREv" menu) rather than adding it as image. This allows files of up to 5Mb in size to be uploaded. The file will appear as a link in your message. Readers will be able to right-click on it and choose the option to save it to disk.
