    can anyone tell me how to post photos to the forum. Is there a simple way for an old man who isn't good at computers. I have photos in my computer but don't see how to attach them

    Upload File down below the smiley faces. I just tested it with this sad photo. Sometimes it doesn't work for me. . My computer is outdated and probably has more viruses than a plane load of West Africans though!:eek:

    If the photo is full size, say 3MB then you need to do a thumbnail, I guess.

    ?

    Click where it says "Write your reply" in the window at the bottom of the thread you want to post a photo on. Then below it says "Upload a file", click that. that should give you a screen where you can find your "Pictures/Photos", or? Find the photo you want, click on it and then click "Open". Choice of "Thumbnail" or "Full Image" will appear. Looks to me like if your photo is large, like 3mb, then use the thumbnail option and the site will re-size and give a good pic.....

    Edit: Maybe not perfect, but it worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you to.

    Find a cheap or free program that will "optimize for web"
    That really shrinks images data size.

    Re-sizing photos is a pain, for me anyway ,NWF allows me to upload a photo unaltered. I just need to choose "Thumbnail", then it's up to the viewer to click the thumbnail to see the full pic.
