    Posting a photo?

    Sorry for the ignorance here, but how do I post a photo stored on my hard drive? When I click the 'Insert Image' button it puts up that http address stuff. Can't I just copy and paste? Aargh!

    1) The "attach image" feature is broken as a result of the move. I'm going to fix it, time permitting, but I'm doing a lot of catching up in other areas right now. Sorry.

    2) You need 25 posts here to have Gallery upload and album creation privileges. The minimum post count is in place to stop image leeching from people who used to sign up for the Cyburbia forums, only to use the Gallery to store images for their threads on skyscraper-related sites; those users usually didn't post here otherwise.

    2) You can upload images from http://www.imageupload.org or http://www.imageshack.us, and hotlink to them, for free.

    EDIT 7 February - Imageupload.org seems to be offline. Add http://paintedover.com/ to your list of working free image hosting services.

    Go to the 'manage attachments' link further down. If you click on that it will let you browse and upload images.

    Edit: simultaneous posting, Dan! Dan has more up-to-date info than I do.
