    Can someone give me a tutorial on how to attach pictures in this forum? I really have no clue😳 Thank you!

    I put a wee tutorial in the sidebar 🙂 Hope that helps!

    Want to share images?
    You’ll need to upload them to a free image hosting service first—Imgur (http://imgur.com/) is great and doesn’t require you to sign up for an account. Simply click ” New Post” at the top of the page, drag your images into the window that pops up, and the images will automatically upload. From there you can hover the images and copy the URL that appears; simply paste that URL into your post on a new line and the image will appear automatically when you post!

    Thank you Marie! I did see your sidebar about Imgur, but that was after I posted this comment. I swear, I try not to be the person who doesn’t read the FAQ section first😜

    I did the exact same thing! I mentioned it somewhere then went d’oh! But I pretty much only use my iPad, so had to download the app. They made me sign up.

    You can make your pictures private too so only you can see them unless you’ve shared the link which is always nice.

    It was actually very easy. I copy/pasted the link right in my post and voila! The picture popped right in when it posted. You gotta love the people who think this stuff up and program it so it’s easy for us who are not so technically inclined.

    I use google Drive, so I just save my pics there. When you click on a pic in Drive, you’ll see an option to get a shareable link. Then just click “img” here on the forum and paste the link.

    Google drive is fab as you can access it anywhere.

    Yeah, I love it. I’ve got my laptop at home that I use, then a little chromebook in my locker at work for downtime (i.e., the time between catastrophes) and of course my phone, so it’s nice to have access to whatever photos, wherever I am. I’m a little spoiled that way.

    Awww, the link didn’t work! I trust the jars are lovely. 🙂

    I like that Imgur thing Marie suggested. The picture shows up in the post! How neat is that? I find the few google drive posts in these forums, don’t show up.

    Hmmmm. I can see it on my end. Wonder why.

    Cyn, I can’t see your post either. Is that from Google Drive?

    Imgur is very easy to use. I downloaded the app, signed up, and when I pull pics in from my iPad, I make them where only I can see them. Then I choose copy link, flip over to the forum, and paste. When I post my comment with link, the picture automatically pops in.
